Douglass Golf Course


Douglass Golf Course is the perfect course for junior golfers or anyone learning the game. It’s a 9-hole course that’s 2,933 yards from the longest set of tees with a par of 34, slope of 102, and 33.9 rating. Even though it’s a small municipal course, Douglas Golf Course is kept in great shape, so all golfers can appreciate how well kept the Bermuda grass tee boxes, greens, and fairways are. If you do a little research on the course you’ll find that it actually opened in 1926. Back then, it was the only course named after an African American with the idea that the course would cater to the African American community. So, when you play Douglas, you’re playing history. The course is set within a neighborhood, so you get to see a lot of people while on the course. It’s definitely a modest kind of place, nothing fancy when it comes to amenities. The course itself is the same way. All of the holes are straight, but some are very tight with tree-lined fairways, which teaches junior golfers to keep their balls in the fairway. The course features three par 3s that are relatively long, given the overall length of the course. From the back tees, the par 3s check in at 211, 195 and 176 yards. Most of the greens are well-bunkered, too. Thankfully, the bunkers are also well-kept so they’re easy enough to escape. You can walk or ride at Douglass Golf Course for a reasonable rate, typically under $25 even on weekends. The staff is always friendly and they have a pretty decent chipping and putting area to practice. Overall, Douglass is a good course whether you’re looking for a place to learn or just want to get out and swing the club. It’s easily accessible being only a few minutes off of I-65 and I-70, so if you’re looking for a place to sneak away for a quick 9, it’s perfect. If nothing else, just to say that you played it is fun from a historical perspective.
