French Lick Resort Casino

French Lick Resort is a resort complex in the central United States, located in the towns of West Baden Springs and French Lick, Indiana. The 3,000-acre complex includes two historic resort spa hotels, stables, a casino, three golf courses that are all part of a $500 million restoration and development project; the casino opened for business on November 3, 2006, after a gaming license intended for Patoka Lake was transferred to French Lick. Honoring state law allowing only water-based gaming, it was designed as a riverboat and surrounded by a small pond. In 2008, the moat was filled in and the casino boat was converted into the state's first land-based casino; the casino features more than 1,300 slot machines, table games including blackjack, craps and poker derivatives. The site was known as the French Lick Springs Hotel, a grand resort, a mineral spring health spa; the hotel catered to guests seeking the advertised healing properties of the town's sulfur springs, three of which were on the hotel's property.

William A. Bowles built and opened the first hotel on his property around 1845. Subsequent owners enlarged the original hotel, but it burned in 1897. Rebuilt and expanded on an grander scale under the ownership of Thomas Taggart, a former mayor of Indianapolis and chairman of the Democratic National Committee, the popular resort attracted many fashionable and notable guests. In the 1920s and into the 1930s the resort became known for its recreational sports, most notably golf, but the French Lick area had a reputation for illegal gambling; the hotel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. The restored hotel, with its exteriors of distinctive, buff-colored brick, reopened in 2006; the historic, 243-room luxury West Baden Springs Hotel, in the adjacent town of West Baden Springs, 1 mile from the French Lick Springs Hotel, is part of the casino resort complex. The present-day West Baden hotel was built in 1902 to replace an earlier hotel; the new hotel became known for the 200-foot dome covering its atrium.

It held the title of the largest free-spanning dome in the world from 1902 to 1913, remained the largest dome in the United States until the completerion of the Coliseum in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1955. The hotel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, became a National Historic Landmark in 1987, it is designated as a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. In 2008 readers of Condé Nast Traveler ranked the West Baden Springs Hotel twenty-first on its list of the top resorts on the United States mainland; the casino complex includes three golf courses: the Valley Course, the Hill Course, the Pete Dye Golf Course at French Lick. Beginning in the early twentieth century, when golf was gaining popularity, the French Lick hotel began to expand its modest golf facilities. Valley Course, the resort's first golf course, is adjacent to the casino, it was enlarged to an 18-hole course on 120 acres around 1907. The larger course design, attributed to Tom Bendelow, featured a combination of wooded hills and flat turf.

It has been reduced to a 9-hole course as a result of the casino construction. Donald Ross and his associates designed the 18-hole Hill Course, the resort's second golf course, around 1917. Completed in 1920 on 300 acres, the championship course was located about 2 miles from the French Lick hotel; the course hosted the PGA Championship tournament in 1924. It hosted the LPGA Championship tournament in 1959 and 1960, the Midwest Amateur from the 1930s through the 1950s. In 2006–07, the course was restored to its original specifications in cooperation with the Donald Ross Society. Pete Dye, a renowned golf course designer from Indiana, designed the resort's third course; the 18-hole Pete Dye Golf Course at French Lick opened in June 2009, hosted the PGA Professional National Championship in June 2010. Mount Airie, Thomas Taggart's 1928 Colonial-style home, was purchased and transformed into a clubhouse and pro shop that overlooks much of the course; this site hosted the Senior PGA Championship in 2015.
