Pros: Inside Staff was very friendly.

I played as a single so luckily I only had to spend 2 and a 1/2 hours at this dreadful place.

Cons: How much time ya got?

Course in terrible condition. They pulled off the unbelievable task of making the greens dreadfully slow yet impossible to hold! Even with a wedge! Honestly you'd be better served stopping at the local hardware store and picking up a sledgehammer to replace your putter. Yet the greens are so firm you don't need a divot tool. If it's a front pin (which 75% of them were that day) getting anywhere near the flag is not an option. Even with wedge in hand. 17 green was half dead! Now on to the bunkers...links course so plenty of bunkering yet no two bunkers the same. Some, plenty of sand and consistent, others, none.

I play to about a 2 hdcp and I don't think I've ever played a course that I've been so penalized hitting good shots.

Avoid this course until either they get a new greenskeeper or invest tons in maintenance or both.

As I said to a friend, a great motto for this place should be: "A great place to play if you live nearby and you're almost out of gas."

If Nick Price saw the state of his design, he'd have his name removed from the scorecard.

Davelongdrive50,

I get it, you're retired and play 3 or 4 times a week but since you're on a fixed income you only play cow pastures where you aren't in danger of losing too many balls and refuse to pay more than $20 for a round. So you create a username with golf terms in it thinking you know all there is to know about the game.

Saying a course is better than last year, even though it's still terrible, is like lipstick on a pig...it's still a pig.

As far as you assuming my skill level, you'd be wrong. Yes, I do only get to play once a week nowadays due to the fact that I'm no longer in the golf business, which I was for the greater part of 15yrs. Yes, I do still carry a 2 hdcp and no, I don't play rock golf balls. It's fine if you're a member of the course and want to defend your home track. Understandable. Assuming someone's skill level based on a bad review, bad move.

Have a good weekend. Enjoy your cow pasture full of weeds and dead spots.


Commented on 04/29/2017

I do have time actually.

This course is on the upswing from last year. 17 green was worst last year, like I said...upswing. Bunkers were worked all last year, once again that is a drastic improvement considering they were filled with dirt all summer last summer and under maintenance.....upswing. Honestly you might have been at the wrong course by reading your comments.

On to the "2hcp" that you have when you play once a week. First, this is not a PGA event you were playing at. Second, you must have been using rocks as balls because I know I played just a few days ago and my golf ball had no problems sticking to the greens, also rolling on the greens very nicely. Third, the Links course may not be for you then considering by your comments you cannot seem to keep the ball in safe play even tho a links course is a wide open course. Considering the vast amounts of higher rated star ratings, that golf course is certainly not a 1 star course.

Thank you, have a wonderful weekend.

The course layout is one of the most fun and challenging in the central Indiana. Most of the fairways are infested with dandelions. The sand traps are half emptied. The greens and tee boxes are in good shape, but could be better. This course would be amazing if more time was spent on maintenance. Staff were friendly and the price is right.

I really want this course to be better. Love the layout. Has some very unique fun holes. But, the Driving range is full of weeds and had not been cut recently. Greens were shaggy and extremely slow. New sand being put in is extremely hard and very shallow. Lots of weeds in rough and some in fairway. Of the courses I've played this spring, it is by far in the poorest condition. Only redeeming factor was it was $27.

Well maintained even through winter, it's a beautiful course, but not for the faint of heart.

I don't think I've ever seen so many greenside and fairway bunkers outside of Myrtle Beach, SC courses.

Makes use of a pretty good mixture of risk-reward, target holes w/ straight-up "greenlight" holes.

I found the course in better shape this fall than this past summer.. Looks like some improvements are in the works. The course is fun yet challenging.. I only ended up in 4 bunkers.

Nov. 2, 75 degrees, immaculate greens, even the fairways were good (several bare spots, but hey, in November who cares?). They even had crews out blowing leaves off the greens and fairways. This is a links course, so playing off the tips is nuts unless you hit 350, but the Gold tees still give you 6500 yds, and the course is beautifully laid out. With Golf Now's Hot Deal, it was absolutely the best bargain ever!

Course was a little damp since it rained the day before. The layout is challenging and you have to plan your shots. I plan to do better when I play this course again. I was alone and tried to get paired with someone who had played there before. Instead, I got paired with a couple of guys who work for Allstate and we all had a blast learning our way around the course. Playing with those guys and having fun added to the adventure. Will definitely play it again.

This course needs a serious input of funds. I live on #7 and the bunkers they have taken out (and there are a lot of them) are still GUR. The bunker near the 7th green has been unplayable for over a year. We have greens like #17 that for all intents and purposes are so full of mold they are unplayable. The worst part of it all is that this is all due to poor planning. When Nick Price first designed the course and when it first opened it was a masterpiece. My love for this course is the reason I moved here. What the design did not take into account is that this is Indiana. The 6 foot deep bunkers become 6 foot deep pools during the winter and in the spring require repair. It is financially impossible to repair the bunkers every year. Subsequently each entity that purchased the course from bankruptcy took bunkers out. Now the course is a shell of what it was and essentially has become a muny. #SAD.

This course could honestly be one of the nicest in the state of Indiana and hopefully it will continue to get better, but it's in horrible shape and it isn't just because of fall approaching. The layout is top of the line, but maintence is a must on a course of this caliber. They need to market this course better and ask for donations or new ownership because this course could be a top golf retreat.

1st Green is absolutely gorgeous!!

after that it goes down hill.

Huge sand traps, although huge sand traps also need maintaining. 1 of the holes I was about 180 out and went for the green, ended up short and into the bunker. When the ball landed--HUGE splash!

Drain your bunkers!!

The day I played it had not rained for several HOT days.

Tee makers-- yes tee markers are usually moved prior to mowing the tee box. No one was mowing tee boxes on the entire course, Tee box markers-some were laying on the ground, some were standing,

SOME WERE MISSING! Just tee off from wherever you like??

Yardage markers? Yes where? There are some painted yardage markers on the cart path, but does you very little good when you're in the fairway and have no view of the markings on the cart path.

1st cut around the green-- some grass, mostly weeds

Grass around the bunkers-- 2' tall--if its part of the course design so be it, would be a 1st of a kind out of my 30 years of playing. If not part of the design, hire some teenagers after school and on the weekends to help cut your weeds.

Course design-- EXCELLENT makes you think about your next shot. Don't plan to play here and use your driver on all 4's and 5's!

Greens on the back 9 are fairly easy to read, true to what you are reading!!

Wide fairways on most holes. Some need definite aim to position yourself well for the next shot!!

Course Setting-- EXCELLENT nice quiet playing -- little artificial noise (road traffic-home owner mowing etc...)

A yardage book or some sort of course layout--better than the score card. If you have never played here, some good visuals would help immensely!!

This course has HUGE POTENTIAL if they would only get back to basics on basic course maintenance.

For the amount of money I paid, I am happy but not satisfied with this course. I am usually not this critical of a course, but some things were just too plainly obvious not to mention to other players. Hopefully someone from the staff will take notice and make appropriate changes there. Word of mouth is huge in today's golfing economy, it can be bad and hurt or it can be good and help your course out immensely!

For the future I will play other courses for the same amount of money that are considerably better!! UNTIL, I see or read of better conditions here.
