Very nice course. Course was beautiful, and everything was in tip top shape. My only complaint was that it was very windy when we played, but that's probably because of how open it is out there. With a Hot Deal, got it for about $33, which isn't a bad deal at all for how nice of a course it is. I would definitely recommend this course to everyone! If you're new to golf, the course could be a little difficult. I've only been playing for 2 years, and shot a 25 over.

First, I want to say that this course is a nice layout. It's challenging, but fair. The fairways are wide enough that you don't feel paralyzed on the tee box, but danger does lurk. The sand traps are the coolest traps I have ever played and I have played all the courses (even Valhalla) in Kentucky and southern Indiana. The fairways are ok, but seem to be under a bit of healing. Should be better as the season moves along. Same with greens.

The problem is that this is a profit driven course. It's almost like being in a busy line at a amusement park. They are churning out tee times and have rangers running around warning people about slow play when no one is behind you. PC skills are needed to ensure guests feel welcome rather than factory workers in china. I assume this comes from the fact that this is a casino course, profit rules.

This is how I imagine a trump course plays. Nice course, but it's about money, not giving golfers a solid experience.

By far the best course in S. IN. In great shape every time I play. In peak season, greens & fairways comparable to Valhalla. For the $$ it cannot be beat. Always great GolfNow deals & since it's a little off the beaten path, pace of play is never slow. I would recommend it over any course in Louisville or S. IN

Greens recently aerated, but recovering nicely. Did not really affect roll or line on putts.

Pretty straightforward except for holes 1, 6, and 17 - a little course knowledge helps for distances off the tee.

Have heard greens run fast - would like to see it once in full season.

Nice tee boxes and proper fairways. Course obstacles seem to be at the right positions to make play from any of the tees a little more interesting. If you hit into the rough be prepared to drop, I found only 1 out of the 3 I hit into the rough. The greens are very fast requiring short game risk/reward shots to be thoughtfully executed.
