Purdue - Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex - Kampen Course
Challenging but fair
This is a very well maintained course with many different types of challenges. Large undulating greens, numerous bunkers, odd angles & water hazards on several holes make you think about your shots much more than many courses. Multiple tees allow you to choose a yardage you're comfortable with. I would recommend that anyone who has an opportunity to play this course do so.

Fun course! We played tips and down.
It was a lot of fun. There was a junior tourney in front of us and the course showed some wear from it. It also pored the night before. I'm not sure how they usually map the pins but it seemed like we had pretty easy placements. With gamier pins and a few days of rest for the course, I'm sure its a whole different beast. Even how it was the day we played its deffinetly in the top 5 indiana courses. The views and general layout were more than we could have imagined for a celery bog in Indiana. Jk Pete did an amazing job with the design. I can't wait to play it again.

Top quality golf course
They set the bar pretty high when comparing to other courses. Very busy day but never had to wait or be pushed. Big greens but very difficult. If you can stay out of the heather, you will have more fun.

Must be Played for Indiana Golf
This course is a masterpiece of golf architecture created by Pete Dye. There is nothing that I did not like about this course. The fairways were perfect and roll like waves. The greens were flawless, undulated in all directions, and were extremely fast. The waste bunkers were to be avoided and the bunkers by the greens could be troublesome if not avoided. Every hole layout was extremely well thought out and worked beautifully with the surrounding area. If you have not played this one and get the opportunity I can not recommend it enough. The value I got for this course with the deal found on GolfNow hot deal was an absolute steal for a course of this caliber.

Great golf experience
My playing partner and I played the south course in the morning and finished in 3 hours. That made us very early for our afternoon time on the Kampen course, but the staff was very accommodating.

Kampen is a beautiful links style course. Very fair if you stay in the fairway. The rough is thick and if you find the heather, strokes can add up in a hurry. The greens were in good shape considering they had been recently aerated. I am looking forward to playing this course agin when the greens are at their best.
