Course in rough shape....

Course has severe water damage from heavy rains. Many fairways are like sand traps. Greens are in bad shape. Very hard with many dead spots. Like putting on concrete. Would not recommend this course until the conditions greatly improve. Course probably was very nice and has potential to be nice again with some investment.

The course layout is OK

The course would be more amateur friendly if the course personnel would make the pins more accessible on already very difficult undulating green. Nobody wants to 3 putt half the greens. Very difficult to score!

Friendly staff, challenging course

Hats off to the staff for the extra steps they’re taking to staff open and provide us an outlet during a challenging time with COVID-19. Staff was extremely welcoming and carefully explained all of the precautions they’re taking. Course played well. I echo other review they greens are challenging with placement but condition was as bad as I expected based on other reviews. It was a great day and we’ll definitely return.

Bad shape

Fairways were in bad shape, and so were the greens. Crab grass weeds everywhere. Not a flat green on the course either. One fairway looked like a cow pasture.

A Sunday round at Indian River

A great day to play in early December. Pretty light crowd and we were able to tee off a little early. The fairways were generally in good condition. The greens were dormant which was expected unfortunately they were pretty bumpy and grainy ,which with the speed made them pretty tough to putt. Also the pins were in some very difficult positions considering the condition of the greens. Also the 11th and 16th greens were in awful shape which they have been in for some time. It is a fun and interesting layout but the pin positions and green conditions made the round much more frustrating than it should have been.

Overall good layout with a number of different and challenging holes. The greens continue to be firm and bumpy. Improvement has been needed on them for a while.

Good Course with Friendly Staff

The fairways are in really good shape. The greens are decent except for a few spots on a couple of them. The staff really made me feel like I was at home. Everyone from the pro shop guys to the cart boys were so courteous and helpful. The golf carts seem new and have USB charging ports so my phone didn't die during my round. Indian River is an absolute bang for your buck!

Great Course

First time playing at Indian River and it was great! The fairways are in wonderful condition and the greens are solid except for a few give spots on some of the holes. The staff was very friendly and professional. The carts were also amazing and had usb ports for the on-cart speakers. Definitely worth it for the price and I will be returning!

Although I do enjoy playing this course it needs some major love. The greens are terrible! Staff is always friendly and will be back but for real do something about the greens.

Greens rock hard and sandy

These greens are terrible, I couldn’t put on them if my life depended on it but I guess you get what you pay for.

New clubs

Just got some new sticks, so I figured I'd give them a try at Indian River. I played here about 4 weeks ago and had the best round of my life. (lots of lucky bounces!)
The fairways are in pretty good shape. The tee boxes needed to be cut, which surprised me since they had their Member-Member tournament starting an hour after my tee time. And the greens are in poor shape. almost every green (except #15), needs some work/attention. Some greens (#17) have "bunkers" on them. Probably not somewhere you want to bring your friends from out of town, but it was a great place test my new irons. It was a very peaceful round and the staff was very friendly.
I'll definitely be back since I live about 15 mins away, but I wish they would give the greens a little more attention. It's a great layout, and a challenging course. If the greens were a little better then it would be one to rave about.

Overall good course. Aside from the group in front of me looking for balls every hole, it was a good time.
