Work your way down I-69 to experience great golf in Northeast Indiana. The I-69 Golf Trail is one way to take advantage of some of the premier golf courses in the area. Travel south on I-69 and stop in DeKalb County, Fort Wayne, and Grant County and keep your travels above par. Great Stay-and-Play packages allow you to play up to 72 holes in one weekend. In Auburn and DeKalb County, play at Bridgewater East Course and Bridgewater West Course. The East Course was designed by Ernie Schrock and involves a great deal of water in the course. The West Course opened in 1922 and is a great course for walking. While you’re in DeKalb County, visit the Auburn Cord Dusenberg Museum and other great attractions. Fort Wayne’s stop on the I-69 Golf Trail features Autumn Ridge and Cherry Hill golf courses. Autumn Ridge is a tranquil golf course that winds through one of Fort Wayne’s most exclusive neighborhoods, while Cherry Hill has a signature island hole. It has also been voted Fort Wayne’s #1 public golf course. After golfing, stop by the Embassy Theatre to see an historic theater with great entertainment or attend a TinCaps game at Parkview Field. The last stop is in Grant County to play at Walnut Creek and Club Run courses. Walnut Creek is a great golf course even for those who are not expert golfers. There are two adjacent golf courses so you don’t have to go far to play another game. At Club Run, elements of the Hoosier landscape are included in the course, and a 1840s brick farmhouse stands as the pro-shop and golf museum. In Grant County, don’t forget to visit the Mississinewa Riverwalk for a stroll along the river. If you’re hungry, stop by The Potter’s House for gourmet chocolate and gifts. Take advantage of package deals that include accommodations and golf at any of these six excellent golf courses. For more information about the I-69 Golf Trail, click here.
