Decaturís Grey Goose Open for Play

Built in marshy wetlands near Decatur in northeast Indiana, Grey Goose Golf Club opened last June. The 18-hole, par-71 layout was constructed on land once used by the Krick-Tyndall Company to mine clay. The mining damaged the soil such that the land couldnít be farmed, and the area eventually turned into wetlands.

The golf course is designed by Indiana developer Ernie Schrock and measures 6,777 yards from the back tees. The layout weaves through 60 acres of wetlands and involves 14 lakes and ponds on the 240-acre site.

Grey Goose boasts a 25-station practice facility with five target greens and practice greens for chipping and putting. The facilityís 6,700-square-foot clubhouse contains a banquet hall and attached deck that can seat up to 425 people. For a tee time at Grey Goose Golf Club, call 219/724-4512.
