Most everywhere you visit at French Lick Resort features some type of unique view, whether you're dining at Ballard's in the Atrium, overlooking The Donald Ross Course at Hagen's Club House Restaurant or enjoying breakfast or brunch in the historic chandelier-crowned Grand Colonnade Restaurant. Today we're traveling atop Mt. Airie for a spectacularly different view where The Pete Dye Course at French Lick is located for a one-of-a-kind Sunset Dinner in The Mansion at Pete Dye. The clubhouse is the mansion home built by former Indianapolis Mayor Thomas Taggart for his son Thomas D. Taggart and his family. The Taggarts owned French Lick Springs Hotel from 1901-1946.
Beginning April 29, The Mansion at Pete Dye will be open for dinner every Sunday evening through October. Kick back, unwind and enjoy an incredible view of an impeccable golf course with dinner.
The Sunset Dinner menu offers two options for the appetizer and entree course with chef's choice crème brûlée for dessert. Here's a course-by-course preview of the menu.
