Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Indiana
Haven't reviewed this course in a couple years so I figured I'd provide an update.
Start in the pro shop where the attitude of "good enough for government work" is on full display - the people checking you in act like it's a complete burden for them to do so and have quite an attitude. How dare I want to play golf? Carts are ok, but have no windshield.
Course itself is in its usual shape - patchy here and there and some greens on the East 9 had water damage spots but overall not bad. Sand traps are very inconsistent, like they dumped it all in the traps closest to the clubhouse and forgot about the rest. Several are as much dirt/mud as they are sand, then some are thicker than an elementary school sandbox.
Clientele trends to the older side, and they play at there pace and do not care if you're behind them. Skip holes if you need to when stuck behind these guys that act like they own the place., it's fairly easy to do so given the layout, especially on the East 9. Don't expect to see a ranger. Also don't expect those guys to fix a ball mark. The greens were recently punched as well, adding to the fun on the greens, which were at a decent pace today.
All in all you can do worse, but there is better around. The Monday $29 special is a decent rate. But don't go out of your way to do it.
Very nice course
We enjoyed playing this very nice looking course! We look forward to playing again sometime!
Nice Course - great location
I haven't played this course in a long time, it played fast and is very nice, I'd recommend this course, we had a great time. Thanks
I always enjoy this course. It had been a little dry but everything was still in good condition.
The course was in good shape despite the lack of rain for the past month. My wife and I were a twosome, and pace of play was good.
Has great layout and excellent condition
Loved the challenging layout and excellent course condition- definetly will be playing this course again.
Great golf round.
It had quit raining when I arrived and the course wasn't busy. I teamed up with three guys who played the course often and we had a great round(Not the score).
Great Condition, Great Value
27 holes in all seems to keep pace of play steady, even on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. The East 9 is the most challenging with elevation changes and blind shots that are not common in central Indiana. Greens were in good shape, as were most of the bunkers. Not terribly long, but a tight layout keeps it challenging.
Exemplary Staff - course in great shape despite much recent rain
Pro Shop staff very efficient & friendly and helpful....
Course in fine shape and greens roll true.....
Will definitely return this summer
Greens were extremely quick but rolled smooth. Excellent value and course condition for price. Will definitely be back.
Being my local muni, I've played the 3 courses here several times now. West is the easiest and most mundane of the 3. Central is a solid 9, with a couple tight holes, and a couple open holes making for a nice mix. East has a few holes that need to be destroyed, starting with the huge tree on 8 in the middle of the fairway. I have yet to figure out the best way to play that hole. The first hole on that side is tough too, as is the long 2nd with a narrow green with a lot of break.
The course is in good shape after all the rain recently. Greens rolled quick even late in the day. Sand, predictably after the deluge, could use an overhaul. Everything else was in good shape. It's not a course you'll rave about, but you can do a lot worse than here, especially when it's not busy and you can cruise around.
Fantastic Fall Golf
Course was in fantastic shape for fall. Greens rolled very nice. There were some branches that had fallen off the trees due to high wind the day before on some of the tee boxes that were kind of annoying, but can't really complain about that.
Cold and lots of leaves.
It was cold and the leaves were so deep it was easy to lose balls. I spent way too much time looking for my ball as I didn't always hit the fairway and it had a lot of leaves. t is a fun course and I will play it again when they rake the leaves.
