About

Holes 9
Par 36
Length 3469
Slope 0
Rating 0.0
Type Semi-Private
There are 36 holes of championship golf available at White Hawk Country Club. The club's four nine-hole golf courses are named Grey Hawk, Black Hawk, Red Hawk, and Silver Hawk. The Black and Grey Courses formed the original 18-hole layout when the club first opened in 1996. The Black Hawk nine is the shortest of the four at 3,469 yards from the back tees. It has a more traditional links-style layout that is player friendly enough for beginners but still offers a challenge with strategically placed bunkers and water hazards. The club's signature hole is the par-3 sixth, which is known for its intimidating island green. White Hawk C.C. has been ranked as one of northwest Indiana's best golf courses and it is conveniently located less than an hour south of downtown Chicago.

Best Value in Area

Course is in very good condition given the high volume of play. The only detractor is condition of bunkers. Pro-shop, restaurant, starter staff is extremely professional and courteous. Restaurant atmosphere and food is excellent and not over-priced. Holes provide a variety of settings: wetlands, hardwoods. creeks, ponds, heather grasses, etc. A very enjoyable overall experience.

I'm kind of torn about this course because I really want to like it more. Facilities were nice. Staff was friendly. Food was very basic and extremely slow. Course was in pretty good shape. Bunkers were unplayable and in really poor shape. Not holding water but not holding sand either. For being as beat up as the greens were they rolled pretty well. It's a pretty nice course for the price, not sure I'd drive from the city often for it but overall it was pretty enjoyable and can't beat the price for what you get.

All I can say is WOW

This was a real treat. Played the course for the first time and could not believe the conditions for the first week of November. I would really fear to play these greens in the middle of a dry hot summer as they were lightning fast this late in the season and in great shape.

You will use every club in your bag

The only problem I have with this course is pace of play. Every time I play there; there is always one group holding up the entire side. They need a ranger to move s-l-o-w groups along. Played 7 holes in less than an hour, 11 holes took more than 3 hours. A foursome with no players in front of them...3some, 2some, 2some, 2some behind. The four groups bunched up on every hole. All 9 players finished the 4th hole on grey while the 4some played the 5th. No reason for 4 groups to be waiting on a par 4!
