Indian Springs is an excellent value.

The greens superintendent and staff have consistently improved the condition of the course over the last three years. Players could help them out by repairing their ball marks on the green.

Our threesome played in 3 hours and 38 minutes even though we never hit a green in regulation and had one guy that would look at his putts from ever angle. Generally he made the fourth one.

Played on a Thursday afternoon in September and it was like having our own personal golf course! Most fairways have ample width, but still easy enough to get in trouble if you are not hitting it straight. Greens were hard and fast, but putted fairly true. There were a couple of pins located where it was difficult to get to them or stop the ball from rolling off the green. This course is fairly hilly and would not be all that easy to walk, even for the young, flat bellies! Many approach shots are uphill and the greens are surrounded by rough, so you must carry the ball onto or very near the green. There are ample bunkers to avoid and some water to hit over, but neither are overwhelming. There are four sets of tees and it is a very stout course from the tips at 7072. Blue is 6688, white is 6121 and the gold measures at 5348. Those distances will play longer with the uphill approaches to the greens. The pro shop is small but appeared to be adequately staffed and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is a large room with a snack bar but did not check it out or eat there. Bottom line, a very enjoyable round on a very nice golf course. We will definitely play it again!

We usually play here once a year, driving from Dayton. It is worth the drive. Course was in good to great shape, better than most public courses. Greens rolled true, fairly fast. Great layout and if you like to play in a natural setting away from housing and roads this is the place to go. Overall a great experience, my group agrees to keep this course in our rotation for next year.

Played Monday morning 8:00 Am tee time. Beautiful but chilly morning. Upon arrival the gentleman working told me and my playing partner that they were top dressing the greens and if we wanted to get out in front of it we should go now. So we tee'd off around 7:40. Well we did not beat the grounds crew and had to play through a little bit of sand. Even with the sand the greens were fast and true. Great round !!!

Played white tees...6100 yards. Greens were very nice, rolled true and receptive to approach shots. Fairways and tees were in good shape except for #4 fairway. Slope rating is moderate but the course plays much tougher from blue and black tees. Several traps were washed out from recent rains but most traps were in good shape. Will definitely play here again.

Perfect weather, near perfect conditions, fast undulating green, bunkers were in great shape with exception of the few that were closed, rough was deep enough to give some thought, and overall the fairways were in great shape (with a few bare spots due to watering or rain). Overall a great place to play.

Played Indian Springs on a Friday afternoon, Skies clear 86 degrees. Pace of play was good, Greens were hard and fast. No Water, drink cart or restrooms on the course? For a Kidwell design course in this good of condition you would think the facilities would be a little more friendly. I played with a client as this was half way between offices and was a little embarrassed that we had to suffer through the last 5 holes with nothing to drink. Food at the turn was mediocre at best. Golf was great, overall experience was average. Next time take client elsewhere, Otherwise a great value for the buck.

Haven't played Indian Springs for 3-4 years. Sadly it has further deteriorated. I loved the layout 15 years ago. Yesterday the signature holes were sad. Lake on par 3 8th nothing but overgrown lily pads. 10 and 11 also, and growth out of lake obstructs aiming points on 10. Greens are very slow and signature 16th hole has no fairway. Dirt and mud. Sad. Worst was way to finish. They let a bunch of garbage grow up just short and right of final hole. Problem is that you can't see it from fairway and severe slope of fairway from left to right funnels balls short of green down into this growth. Left a very bad taste in my mouth and not want to return. Sad to see a pretty course go this way.

The greens are the best in town. Quick and smooth. When you putt the ball stays on the carpet and doesn't bounce. Wish I putted better and my round would have been better.

The course layout is challenging but not so tough you are losing balls every 2-3 holes.

We played the course on a 90 degree day, but we have had all this rain and the course was soaked. We were surprised that carts were out, let alone not cart path only except for 2 holes (#3 & #4). Considering the wet conditions, the course was in good shape and the greens were pretty fast. There are some challenging holes, some blind tee shots so course management or course knowledge is helpful.

Indian Springs has always been on my "Favorite to Play" list. The course layout has a good balance between challenging and playable at the same time. There are a number of beautiful holes framed through the trees, great elevation changes from tee to green, rolling fairways and doglegs (left and right). Each hole has its own identity and I play them in my head after the round (kudos to the course architect). If you are looking to play a course that asks you to play different clubs in your bag, instead of the typical public track - "Driver/Wedge". Then Indian Springs should be on your play list this season. It is well worth the drive, great bang for the buck!!!

A great out of the way golf course which is in great shape. Some of the sand traps has stones and gravel in them which need to be cleaned out. The over all facility is great, but wish they had a grille for hamburgers or chicken.<br/> The goose are starting to be problem on a couple holes with leaving a lot of droppings which make it different on those holes.<br/> We will be back.

I've played here a few times and it's always been soaked. Drainage is an issue. It was so wet it couldn't be mowed, even some parts of the fairways. Rough was US Open long, if not longer in spots. I want to give this course a fair shake in the mid summer. I'm sure it was great. Greens were still speedy on the back towards the end of the round and I'm sure lightening fast when it's dry!

Golfers of every level can be appropriately challenged. This course has a 124 slope from the white tees and 134 from the blues. Given the extremely wet weather, the course was in very good shape. With 4 Central Ohio courses closing, many Central Ohio golfers will begin to realize how good this course is.
