Played here on June 2, 2018. Paid $27.00 for Senior Rate. Went back on June 13, 2018, was told Senior Rate was $32.00! Course isn't worth $32.00.

Course continues to improve, greens, sand traps, and first cut around greens are in excellent shape. I'll be making another trip down this year to see how the fairways come in.

Good course with challenging holes for beginner and intermediate level golfers. Layout was forgiving with some awesome elevation changes, but requires you bring all elements of the game. Fairways are wide and greens were great given the weather and time of year. Staff were great and the food exceeded expectations.

Was almost shocked at how good the course looked. I have played this course when it was awful and to see the improvements that have been made was amazing. Extremely pleased with the outing. With the price we got for the round and the way the course played, we can't wait to go again! Absolutely would recommend this course to anyone.

Great time on a challenging course. Very helpful staff and a course book was provided to help with where to hit your shots. The back side is tighter than the front. The course was in excellent shape except for a couple of fairways. I look forward to playing this very scenic course again.

Good layout. Back 9 very technical but fair. Greens need work but very early in the year. Has a driving range which I think is critical. Restaurant and employees work very hard and find time to talk.

Based on the ratings for this course I expected a little more. The course condition is generally not good. Many bare spots. A lot of crabgrass in the fairways where the Bermuda has died out. #15 tee doesn't have a blade of grass on it (good luck getting a tee in the ground if it's not raining). The greens were really the only bright spot. All but a few were in good shape, reasonable speed and smooth for the most part. The front nine is flat with a few interesting holes, very playable. The back is a nightmare starting with #12. Possibly in the top ten of worst designed par fives anywhere. 15 thru 17 are just poorly designed holes. They tried to get creative in the hills but the results were not good. Pace of play was horrendous. Almost 3 hours to play the back. We made the 4th group on the 14th hole when we pulled up and it's a par 3. Price was about right for what we got on this trip since we only paid the cart fees. We traveled over an hour to get there. If you have to travel more than 25 minutes don't do it. Many other courses in the area that are nicer and a better value. Not likely to return given the travel time. If they ever get their Bermuda back on the fairways and tees it might deserve a better rating. They have a long way to go. Sorry.. Just my opinion.

Nice course with a good layout. Front 9 is fairly flat and the back 9 has a lot of elevation changes. You don't need to hit the driver much on the course. Here are some thoughts on the course:<br/> Pros:<br/> Every hole was different. Course is laid out nicely.<br/> Bunkers were well maintained<br/> Course guide was very helpful since this was my first time playing this course.<br/> Club house/restaurant staff<br/> Cons:<br/> Greens had spots that were burned up as well as the fringe.<br/> Fairways had bare spots as well as some tee boxes.<br/> Rough was mainly crab grass.<br/> Overall:<br/> I drove 1:15 to play this course and I'm glad I did. It has great potential as the layout is beautiful and well thought out. You have to hit shots left to right as well as right to left. If the greens and fairways were a little bit better, then I would have give it a 4 star rating. The staff in the club house/restaurant were cordial.

Interesting layout. Good greens with a few poor spots. Fairways still need to finish filling in, but the bermuda is making progress. The price is very fair and you get what you paid for. The snack bar is still a work in progress. boiled hot dogs and burgers cooked ahead of time and left in warmers on the counter, not so good. Fries were cooked to order and were great. I arrived via IN 237 (very windy and slow) and they need at least one more directional sign after you arrive near the course. Overall a place to play again.

It's clear that the improvements Lucas Oil is doing are making a huge difference. Only a few holes still need work, but will get their due in time. Fairways are mostly good, greens are good, and the latout is fun.

A Free Course Lay Out was given to us, which was really helpful and a nice perk. There has been so much rain, it's difficult to maintain a golf course right now and the carts were on the path, which made this a long day.<br/> Greens were in good shape, and the owners have made tremendous improvements over the past 2 years. Fairways are in still in need of a bunch of work.<br/> There are really some holes with unique layouts, including elevation changes. It's a fun course to play. There is a bunch of distance from tee to green, don't ever try to walk this course. Beer specials in the bar.

It was under water 3 days before!!!! Literally totally underwater!!!! The greens just looked like they had been a little beat up. Not underwater. Spots in the fairway we just had to play GUR 3 times each. I can't wait to play here when it hasn't been submerged underwater! There are some holes where you have to hit an iron. I knew this. Told my buddy where to hit them. He didn't listen to me the first time! Very challenging. I loved it!!!!

The first thing I noticed when I got to the course was how cheap the food was and how friendly the staff was. Had to start on the back nine because of the senior outing on Thursday. Some areas in the fairways were dead; and some of the sand bunkers were really not in good condition. You wind though half of English when traveling hole to hole! It's a beautiful course with a limestone filled creek running around the whole courseI traveled 2 hours from Indianapolis to play the course for 10 dollars off of golf now hot deals. Would do it every time!! If you can't catch a hot deal it's only 30 through out the week. Love this course, love the people, and will definitely will be back soon.
