Several of the greens were not in very good shape and most were pretty hairy and not rolling great.

traveling thru

The course was in need of work. Some parts washed out by water, no grass in fairways at some points. Greens hard to judge. Some grass long, some short, etc. Could be a nice course if it had some TLC.

Course needs work

Greens were in terrible condition! Fairways were in bad condition as well. Staff was not friendly. No food available due to a later event which would have been nice to know when I booked the tee time.

Terrible conditions

The fairways looks like bunkers in most cases. The greens looked like bunkers with more sand than grass. The bunkers actually have Grass and weeds growing in them. But,vtge greens were the worst. Forget putting normally.

Lemme get a refund!!!

It’s sad what has happened to this course. The guy with the worst yard in your neighborhood can now proudly say he has golf course grass. I’m certain this place hasn’t been watered all summer or it caught the Rona. Half the greens were unplayable and had so much sand on them the ball made a sand splash. But for real .....I would like a refund I’m pretty sure I earned it. Oh and our golf cart topped out at 6mph. I tried to post some pictures but it wouldn’t let me.

What happened to this place?

One of the most jacked up courses I’ve ever played. I haven’t played here in years and was completely shocked by the condition this course
is in. Half of the greens were unplayable and the fairways looked like they haven’t seen water in a month.

Not worth it

Greens were in terrible shape, so bad in fact they had one hole staged in the middle of the fairway. They had food options but half of them weren’t ready even though it was lunch time. Save your money and go play somewhere else.

Absolute dump

Worse course I've ever played. An absolute dump. You'd have a better experience finding a cow pasture.

NEEDS HELP

This course needs lots of help. The course layout is great and fun. You can score on the back 9. Front 9 has 3 par 5's and 2 of them are back to back holes. 4th hole has the green in the middle of the fairway b/c the normal green is gone. The "fairway green" is just that a flag stick in the fairway, the grass hasn't been cut down at all so you can' putt. Back 9 is in better shape than front. Last several greens are in good shape. However the fairway on 15 is the worst fairway I have ever seen. So much sand it's hard to find a white ball.

Hopefully they find a way to get some money into this course b/c it can be good.

Fairly tough course

It’s a crazy layout and is a difficult course to play well on. The more you play here you’ll see a drastic improvement in score.

Great value

Indian River has a very scenic layout. The bunkers are plentiful and well maintained. There were a few tee boxes that need a little TLC because of the hard pan. Several greens have crabgrass growing on them which makes it impossible to get a good roll on a putt. Overall, the greens were fast and challenging. The cart attendant was always making sure we had what we needed to drink. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Thank you for a great round.

Course

The course wasn’t in great shape. Very sandy and greens were bad. One of the greens was just green spray paint in the fairway. Wouldn’t recommend, but it’s cheap to play so I guess you get what you pay for.

Worst course I’ve played this year

I’ve played this course a few times before today and each time I’ve played it I said I wasn’t returning. Aesthetically it’s not very pleasing. The greens were horrible and #4 was a temporary green. I had to rush a few of my shots in order to dodge the fairway sprinklers on a couple of holes. I really didn’t feel very welcome at check in. The grounds crew were the most friendliest especially the pretty young lady driving the mower. She smiled and waved hello. Plus, I was told if I wanted an individual cart do to COVID-19 it would be a $10 charge.
