Damaged greens

Greens were severely damaged from a failed aeration attempt and mold/fungus growth.. Malfunctioning mower created random lines of untrimmed grass that ran through some of the greens which severely effected putts. Unfriendly pro shop provided no mention of course conditions when charging full price for a Monday am round. "Out of towners" get the cold shoulder from staff.

Overpriced and unfriendly

Check in was met with an unfriendly, dry and cold attitude, maybe the guy was having a bad day, but then he shouldn't be posted at the check in desk which is the primary customer service point at a golf course. Same with the service at the cafe, I couldn't tell if the lady was upset or having her own bad day or if that was just her normal demeanor.

Greens had been punched and sanded with no prior notice before booking the round. Every green was rittled with divot-like punches, and even that wasn't the only problem, they were soft and spongy, very slow and unpredictable. Course was in muni condition at best (even aside from the greens). Fairways were bare in many places, rough/course boundaries were unmanicured and overgrown. Layout and design were definitely interesting and worth a round, but even so I could not ever justify coming back unless they dropped their prices by $20-$25.

Got a great Hot Deal price on a Monday morning, course was nearly empty since there was a shotgun tournament start at noon.

Course is in nice shape, and it's a beautiful place to play on a nice day. Almost no houses or signs of civilization at all, out in the country.

Aside from having a huge old Oak in the dead center of the 1st fairway, it's a pretty fair course.

Too slow pace of play!

Great weather, nice course, challenging elevation changes for those walking but good exercise. All of this was made much less enjoyable due to the 5 1/2 hours that it took to get through 18 holes.

The marshals at public courses need to take their job seriously. They can politely tell groups to skip a hole to catch up to the next group. It is ridiculous for the rest of us to be camping out at each hole. We literally had 3 groups sitting at one par 3 hole waiting for the group in front of us.

For those of us who love the diversity of playing different public courses instead of being a member of a private club, I beg of you marshals, please take your job seriously. And golf course managers, when hiring marshals, please hire employees who have maturity, grace, and have perfected the velvet hammer approach. We all will really appreciate it!

Great conditions

The course is in great shape and is one of the best in the north bay. The greens have been spotty in the past but are now in excellent shape. There are also some new tee boxes that are very nice.

Very nice course

Best course I have played this year when it comes to how nice it was, and how challenging it was as well. Beautiful views from the tee boxes. I highly advise people to try this course at least once

Not long, but very challenging

If you are looking for course with a little bite and a course with natural beauty, Indian Valley is for you. Though I have played it many times, I have never found myself not wanting to play it again. The views of the hillsides and of Stafford lake are outstanding... Highly recommend.

If the greens were in good shape, it would have been excellent. The greens had been recently sanded.

No aeration alert

They were punching several greens right in front of us for several holes and sanded others in large machines. It looked like a construction zone. After 12 holes we had enough. We went back to pro shop and Marvin helped us out with vouchers. I dont know why golf now had no aeration alert when we booked on a hot deal.. They have a great and friendly staff.

So they were doing yearly maintenance to keep the greens great and they gave you a voucher to play again later.. You basically got 12 free holes of golf and that's worth 2 stars to you?

This course is always good fun and a challenge

Even when you book a HOT Deal on Golf Now this still isn't that cheap unless you walk,it NEVER includes a cart so tack on another 15.00 each.Besides that this course layout rocks using most all clubs in your bag.Numerous elevation changes with doglegs,sloped fairways,uphill fairways,downhill fairways,double greens and not for the faint at heart.I love the challenge it administers and the beer at the end of the ninth before the real challenge starts.
