A Brief Description....

The Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek (formerly Mill Creek Golf Course) is a traditional 18 hole layout located in downtown Rochester, Indiana. The Golf Shop moved to its current location, at the renovated Gerig Round Barn on the south side of the course, in January of 2005 and the golf course layout has also undergone some routing changes. The course is asthetically pleasing and challenging for golfers of all ability levels and additional improvements are underway that will continue to establish the Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek as one of the best places to play for golfers seeking both quality and affordabilty.

The course par is a very traditional 36-36 = 72, and each nine is a challenging blend of reasonable birdie opportunities and tough pars. The opening hole is a difficult starting hole that features a small lake down the left side and Mill Creek down the right side and crossing the fairway. Holes 2 through 4 offer a little relief and a chance to get into the flow of the round. The 5th through the 9th may well be one of the more difficult finishes to a nine in this part of the state. Included in that streatch is a Par 3 that can play up to 221 yards, a moderately long dogleg Par 4, and 3 consecutive holes that feature water almost entirely down the left side. The 10th is a par 3 that begins from an elevated tee in the shadow of the Barn and heads due East to a two tiered green gaurded on the left by a well placed bunker. The 11th is a 580 yard Par 5 that is reachable only by the longest of hitters. The 12th is a risk and reward Par 5 that is reachable in two with a carry over a large waste area or easily playable in 3 shots without ever needing to unleash the driver. The 17th is another risk and reward hole that can be a great temptation. A well struck tee shot will carry Mill Creek and leave less than 100 yards while a layup is much safer but requires a 175-200 yard approach. The 18th is a short par 4 that also features a small lake on the left and Mill Creek on the right. Scramblers may try to drive the green while those playing for their own score will likely hit a 200 yard tee shot and a wedge.
Young Mens ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2015
The Zebras Linksters again have 4 of the top 5 players returning from last seasons Regional qualifying squad.  Sophomore Killian Bailey accumulated the low match and tournament average during the 2014 season and has continued his develop his game throughout the summer and fall.  Junior Aaaon Orr had the 2nd lowest scoring average during the 2014 season and had several nice events in the summer.  However, Aaron recently broke his thumb wrestling so, although he should be cleared to participate when the first day of practice rolls around, he is expected to have a little slower start to the 2015 campaign.  Senior Markis Smiley (low RHS score at the 2014 Sectional) has quite a bit of experience and will be expected to contribute solid scores.  Senior Noah Roberts spent the summer in Spain and is really a wildcard at this time.  He has experience but has simply not had the time to develop his game.  Sophomore Jackson Sawyer was a suprise playing at #3 or #4 most of last season but a late season slump drug down his scoring averages.  He had a mild summer schedule but rumor has it that Jackson posted a 77 while playing a casual round in the summer.  If that is the case, he might just be the key to unlocking this teams potential. Junior Daniel Butler seemed to be right on the brink of breaking through last season.  Consistent  chipping, putting and wedge play would go a long way toward Daniel playing at a high level and establishing himself as a regular top 5 player.  If RHS has new Freshman players, I am currently unaware.  We'll see what the call-out meeting brings in February.  The overall outlook for 2015 should be to expect another slightly improved team with nice depth through the 6th or 7th position, very competitive matches and the potential for an even stronger team than last season's Regional Qualifiers.  A trip to the Regional should be expected.  A trip to the State Finals is getting ahead of ourselves a bit.  There is still quite alot of work to do.  GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!

Young Ladies ZEBRA GOLF PREVIEW 2015
The Lady Z's will start the 2015 season without the #1 and #2 players from the last 4 seasons.  Karsten Lingenfelter, the 2014 Individual Sectional Champion, will be a student at the University of Southern Indiana and sister Kovenant Lingenfelter will be in college but the location is yet to be decided.  Junior to be and younger sister Kinley Lingenfelter actually finished the season with the lowest zebra scoring average and, after shooting a 74 and finishing 2nd of 108 golfers at the East Noble Regional at Cobblestone, made her 2nd trip to the IHSAA State Finals at Prairie View where she galantly battled the cold, windy and wet conditions before eventually finishing 24th of 100 golfers.   The Zebra's #4 Player Vanessa Henning also graduated.  As a result, senior to be Tori Lee will be the most likely to move into the #2 position.  She will need to improve her fundamentals over the   summer and then simply gain some on course experience in order to be able to post reasonable numbers.  Junior to be Rosalie Navarro rarely cracked the top 5 last season but shows athleticism and a growing interest in the game which is often a tremendous combination!  She is most likely to play #3.  Younger sister Ashleigh Navarro  played JV last season and improved thoughout the year before posting a season best in the last home match of the year.  She is showing interest as well and will likely have an opportunity to play varsity golf in 2015.  Sid Miller and Grace Paul both played JV last season and could be nice contributors if they get serious about spending some time at the course over the summer. Finally, rumor has it that  two sophomores who did not participate in 2014 but have some golf experience will be coming out.  The overall team outlook is shaky at this point.  So much revolves around those with interest making the effort to solidify fundamentals and make the time to improve that it is difficult to even consider a winning dual match record.  The zebras  that have gone 79-5 in dual matches over the last 4 seasons will be a big underdog starting the 2015 campaign but it should still be fun to watch these Z's try to catch their stride  GO STRIPE IT ZEBRAS!
INTELLIGENT DESIGN
FINE MILLED PUTTERS


Round Barn PGA Professional Lyle Lingenfelter
has designed a series of putters under the Intelligent
Design name and expects them to be ready for retail
distribution in APRIL 2015. The computer programming work is being done locally by JE Engineering (Jeff Elliot) and the putters are being milled at Machined Castings (Monte Hoffman) in Rochester, Indiana. It is safe to say, the 303 SS milled putter will be 100% made in the USA right down to the epoxy, grip tape and solvent !  The design specifics will be presented fully in a pamphlet.  Three 
different balance points will make up the initial offering with custom options available for different site lines as well as the milling of a name on the heel or toe area of the putter face.  New headcovers with the Intelligent Design Logo and magnetic closure will either be made by Delilah's Headcovers in Evansville, IN or AM&E Headcovers in Arizona.  Prototype putters have already won several college events, IGA Mountain Dew events, IGA Prep events and been played at the IHSAA State Finals.  One PGA Tour Professional has trsted the putter as well.
