Loved the course and will go back BUT not until next season. They had diseased greens this summer so there are 17 temporary greens cut out of the fairways as they re-seed the regular greens. You hit onto the temporary greens then there is a 2 putt rule in effect. Also, because of the greens the pro shop is running a fall special so we ended up paying about $5 more by booking online with GolfNow than if we would have just payed at the course.

Again, loved the old school, mature course and will go back AFTER they get the greens in order. At least no three putts!

One of my favorite courses to play. A lot of scenery and water in play. The last time I played though, the greens were dirt and the holes were in the fairway. Something they should have said entering the clubhouse or better yet before booking.

It's a good course , lots of water . Bring extra balls because when you hit over water, your hitting over a river.

The course overall was in great shape there was some standing water in some areas. There is some low areas that don't drain very good after a good rain. It rained the day before we played. If you stay in the fairway you are good. The third and fourth water had water off the left side of fairway. It wasn't a problem for me I never go left. The course is a very great course to play. Three holes you have to drive the ball over the St Joe River. It's a very pretty course. The 18th hole is a elevated tee looking over the St Joe River it takes a good drive to clear the river. You don't want to peek on this hole you will end up in the river. It's a great finishing hole.

It would have been nice to know upon booking that only 9 holes were open to play due to water on the course. Appreciated the starter offering mosquito spray before we played.

This is a fun well kept municipal course. The course layout is a bit quirky, (especially on hole 13), not having played in a couple of years it wasn't clear from the tee box where you needed to play your tee shot. We had a couple of kids that were walking and not keeping up the group in front of them. There wasn't a ranger, so after patiently waiting on several holes we finally drove up to them and expressed to them the need to keep up with the group in front of them. They were very polite and apologized and we didn't have any issues after that.

Overall a fun day and a very nicely kept golf course

I really do love this course. It has been one of my favorites for many years due to the scenery and being able to hit over the river on a few holes. I hadn't played the course in many years, but it didn't disappoint. The course is in excellent condition. I booked the course for 10 dollars on golfnow which is an incredible value.

We played Eberhart on a warm sunny day. Overall course conditions were excellent. Our only complaint would be that the greens were slower than we like. I would guess about 5-6 on the Stimpmeter. Otherwise the rough was lush, the fairways were very good, and the bunkers had good sand. Nice old time layout with 4 holes that you tee off over the St. Joe River. We will be back.

I've always thought it was way overpriced. The only good thing about the course is that it's cool hitting over the river. However, the bridges probably cost more to build than the course itself, making it more expensive to play than it should be. You can often play Blackthorn for the same prices, which is a FAR better course... Also, the restaurant didn't open until 10AM on a Saturday. Pretty inconvenient for a group of guys teeing off at 9 and wanting to buy beer.

What a Fun day! Mishawaka should be commended for fixing up the course so nicely. Greens and fairways were in great shape and they did a great job trimming the trees. Golf was perfect for a mid-level golfer and some of the holes are very challenging. Thanks.

I have golfed here many times and it's always enjoyable. It is a fairly short course, however the views and scenery are always quite nice. If you like the traditional tree lined fairways and many water hazards, this is the course for you!
