The Club at Chatham Hills is a new, private Pete Dye course just north of Indianapolis. The topography is wonderful for golf -- lots of elevation changes, natural water features -- and Dye and his staff have done their usual artful job with it. Bunkers and greens are excellent (already), and fairways will grow in fully by early next summer. Since it just opened in Oct. 2016, it was still a little rough around the edges (be careful stepping off of tee boxes -- I twisted my ankle badly on No. 1, and it still hurts). Two main pieces of advice: 1) Choose the appropriate tee boxes for your skull level; playing too far back will result in a LONG, SLOW day (as when I played with some guys who decided the tips, or close to them, were for them). Our 5.5 hour round could have been a 4-hour round if we hadn't been looking for balls and hitting multiple shots most of the day. 2) Keep the ball below the hole, which is tricky with the firm greens. With greens running at 11+ on the Stimp meter, downhill putts are nearly impossible to stop. Once the clubhouse is built, the amenities will be 5-star.
