About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6876
Slope 129
Rating 72.3
Type Public
Situated just next to Potawatomie State Park, Idewild Golf Course enjoys scenic views from almost every hole. The course itself is colored with a variety of native vegetation that complements the lush, well manicured greens and fairways. The rolling terrain provides plenty of interesting contours that range from subtle to dramatic. It is a challenging course that offers plenty of risk-reward opportunities. There is plenty of water and sand coming into play throughout the golf course. The most talked-about hole is the tough par-5 ninth where reaching the island green in two is only possible for the longest and most accurate of hitters. There are mature forests to the right, a fairway bunker, and a towering elm tree in the center and not to mention the green itself is large and undulating.

Idlewild

Great staff friendliness. Course has a few tough holes, tight, water, etc. Enjoyable round, although just a little slow due to groups in front.

Family Golf Outing

Phil is FANTASTIC! We have been on this course a couple of times, today was a special day though we brought our 2 younger girls with us ages 11 & 7 for the first time, our 7 year old has been begging to go with us, so we decided to get her a youth set of clubs for her birthday & book a tee time, we also took my oldest daughter and fiance with and my 7 year old grandson. So 3 new golfers, & oh my what a nice course to get the kids started with a new family sport, they had a blast and it was fun for us to see the kids have fun. Golfing isnt a old person sport, its a fun challenging game that a whole family can enjoy together! Thanks Idlewild for making it a great day for us!

Good, fun course.

Idlewild is a well kept course that offers some unique challenges. It is a bit long for my taste with 3-400 plus yard par 4s from the blue tees so I will play the yellow tees next time. It was fun.

Snotty Desk person

Arrived on time ( 1225) desk person chastissed ed me that the other people were looking for me. I was never told that I would be paired up with others. Then same desk person chastised me again that I should slow down when he made it clear that I must be holding things up. Very poor manners.
