Valpo's Gem

The Course at Aberdeen ($$)
245 Tower Road
Valparaiso, IN 46385
(219) 462-5050

Opened in 1997, this spacious course is laid out amongst rolling, breezy hills with a mix of native forest and marsh filling out the landscape, as well as providing some hazards. Water comes into play on 12 out of 18 holes, but hackers shouldn’t be daunted as there is decent relief at the forward tees.

The 12th and 13th holes certainly make for an interesting round. The 408-yard, par-4 12th has a split fairway with a partially hidden green; club choice is important at the tee box. The 300-yard, par-4 13th will have bigger hitters trying for the green in one, but the right-side lake can and will make the eagle dream die.

Wide open fairways and negotiable rough makes The Course at Aberdeen appealing to those still trying to straighten out their snap hooks and leaky slices. It’s about 60-70 minutes from downtown Chicago, but its plush fairways, well-maintained greens and attractive scenery make Aberdeen worth the drive.
