Good Bargain! Fast Greens

I have played this course multiple times over the past couple of years and I really like the layout and the price is always good.

The greens were very hard and fast which was difficult to putt because I play a bit slower greens but all were in good shape except #17 which had the pin in the fairway I am assuming to allow the green to recover.

Overall a good course at a great price!

Great Course, with some minor critiques.

I enjoyed playing this course today. It was a great layout with challenging distance, hills, trees, and water/sand traps. However, the greens were in less than stellar condition. Each one had rough patches of sand it seems like they were going to do some work on at some time. Hole#17 was closed on the green, so they put the hole in the middle of the fairway. Interesting. Seems like these greens need some immediate improvement and attention.

Great Round

Great Course set up! Was nervous due to the reviews of the course, but overall the greens were in awesome shape in about 90% of the course and the roll on the greens were amazing and I believe next year this course is going to be pristine. It is hard to find a course anywhere in the Midlands that was not affected by the Winter, even Cobblestone that charges over 30.00 dollars a round was in about the same shape as this course. Overall will play again due to conditions, price, and layout which was moderate. It is a course that relies on a perfect drive and an accurate approach shot, which good courses make you do. Little room for error, and was proud to shoot 80 as a 5 handicapper.

Pretty good but greens need some work

Great and fun course. Fairways are in tremendous shape. Tee boxes are pretty good. The greens ehhhhh they are very bumpy and have some dead spots. It appears they are trying to work on them. They have always been fast the previous times I've played but now there are some weeds and they just don't roll well. Other than that its a fun course to play. Hopefully the greens will get better.

Wish it was more consistent

Would love it if greens were more consistent. Some are really slow and all dried up, others are super green and fast.

Greens are still in bad shape

Regardless of what others have written, the greens continue to be in bad shape. This was my 3rd time playing the course and I figured I’d give it another shot. The greens have not gotten any better the past 2 years and continue to have bumps from dead and bare spots.

All other aspect/areas were avg to above avg.

Good course and great value

The staff was very friendly, they let me out early, and slow players let me play through. The greens were a little patchy in places with some burnt spots, but other than that, it was a great course. I will play here again.

Okay

Course was in better than average condition with the exception of the greens. Most looked to be snow covered but it was sand.

Bad conditions

We played on a Golf Now hot deal. They had recently punched and sanded their greens so they were horrible. For Golf Now to rate this as a 4 Star course. Is an over rating. Their staff is always friendly.

The Course is Appropriately Named

My buddies and I had a great outing. The staff was very friendly and value was good. Hills on the fairways were expected but the greens were a bit challenging with their undulating layout and difficult pin placement. Close misses turned into 3-putts or more. Your approach has to be on the money or you’ll be picking up your ball and moving onto the next Tee.

This course has potential

With some TLC, this course could become very strong. It has good "bones" but it had multiple areas of thin to no grass and the cart paths were rough. I don't live in the area, but if passing through later in the season, I would like to see what it's like after the bermuda has a chance to grow in.

Not So Good

I've seen this course in good condition but that has come to an end. The greens were terrible. Some greens had way more sand and dirt and grass and all the greens were bumpy. Defiantly not worth the money. I have said that Indian River is one of the better public courses in the area but it is now the worst, even behind Charwood and Indian Trail.

Could have been good

The course has some interesting holes unfortunately the course conditions were terrible. Some greens were putting on the linoleum, others did have some grass. Not alot of grass on the fairways.

Very hilly.

Great time

The coarse is is good shape and thegreens are improving. Some of the fairways (no 7) needs to be seeded. But otherwise I enjoy playing this corse. It is a challenging layout but scoring is possible

Improving

Haven’t played this course in quite a while due to how bad of shape it had gotten but yesterday the course proved to be under some great improvement. I’m not sure if they changed management or just personnel but the guy checking me in was very helpful and didn’t even try to force us with another pair to make a foursome. Also when we pulled up to the tee box a threesome in front of us was horrible and managed to even hit one of their many drives behind them. Pretty amazing to watch... Shortly after watching that a different guy came out of the club house and invited us to go off the back and turned out to be an overall great day for Golf. The greens are almost back to the good shape they used to be. Will definitely go back for that price.
