Stay Away!

Bad experience all the way around! The Course is in terrible shape with either very muddy or bone dry fairways found on a majority of holes. The Staff was very rude and the bartender acted like she was too busy to serve and didn't want to be there. I make it a point to play new course every week and this was by far my worst experience to date. Look elsewhere if you want a quality experience!

Terrible Shape, Staff Even Worse

I play this course once or twice a year in outings for some of my favorite charities. It is never in good shape. Over the years the fairways generally are burnt out clay. This year it wasn't as bad but still in bad shape. Fairways where there was some grass was not mowed evenly or manicured at all really. It is a short, gimmicky layout.

What is so shocking about this place is the staff. It is almost like they are tanking on purpose. The pro is grumpy and mean, the ranger is argumentative to the point he actually picks fights/arguments, and the bartender clearly hated her job. This year the charity bought the whole course for an outing and the pro and ranger wanted to argue what groups were assigned to what holes, and actually escalated the arguments over things so simple as whether the group on hole 4B could move to hole 13 (an open hole) for the shotgun. And when I say escalated I mean the ranger followed us, lectured us, and took personal shots at some of the golfing customers. I am not exaggerating. It really is bizarre to have employees and a pro overtly just, well, mean.

I've played golf all over the world and all over Indiana.

Idle Creek is, top-to-bottom, the worst golf facility I've ever experienced. I cannot recommend anything about it and urge all my fellow golfers to stay far, far away.

This course was terrible

From the clubhouse to the 18th green, I have nothing positive to say other than the pace of play was great, because no one was there.

Never again!

Looking down the fairway from the first tee, I thought, wow! This looks like a nice course! Then I saw the first fairway, which was burned out, and the left rough, which was a thick patch of clover, and I thought, "I just paid $49 for this?" Hole layouts seemed to have been designed as a afterthought, to fit into the surrounding housing development. Could only hit driver once on the front nine. No idea where to hit it on the 7th hole. Back nine was rather boring and pedestrian, with the exception of the first par 5. Some holes were baked out, others were over-watered. Couldn't find the 12th tee! Coming off the 11th, the cart path ran right into the street. After driving around the neighborhood, I finally asked someone where the 12th was - it was about 3 blocks right of the 11th green. No sign or nothing! Restaurant/lounge wasn't open on Sunday, so no food/beverage either. I was looking for a place to play in the Terre Haute area - this won't be it.

Well said, I was utterly lost as well finding 12. A little effort from the staff would also be nice.
