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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

This course is below average and not worth more than $20/round tops. What makes it worse is the guy Tony at the clubhouse desk who is always there. He is always so rude and just utterly unprofessional as can be. He needs to be friendlier and more respectable to the patrons paying his check and playing on the below par course where he works.

I have played this course for years and it is in the worst shape I have ever seen it. One green is completely closed and others have dead spots. Fairways are hard with sparse grass. I would downgrade their rating to 3 stars at best. Anyone rating this 5 stars is way off.

Overall nice lay out and course was in decent shape. Greens were kind of rough.. I am not sure what #10 was supposed to be, however it was basically a hole in the middle of the fairway with no green. really odd, maybe some work going on of which we were unaware.. Staff was extremely friendly!!
