Course was in decent condition considering all the rain that we had this past week. Tee boxes could use a little work, fairways and greens were in good shape. Needed a beer cart. Will definitely go back.

Decent Course for Price, But Way Too Busy

The course itself was very nice! It's a little short distance-wise but overall, I have no complaints with the round of golf itself.

The problem I had was the fact that there was a 3 group wait on every single hole. It took us 6 hours to play a round of golf here. 6 HOURS!!! I've never played a round that long in my life. I'm not sure if this was a product of a couple of slow groups or if the course let too many people on at a time, but a 6 hour round is unacceptable. Beware golfing here on a Saturday afternoon.

Not badge

Not a bad course. It’s wide open and usually in good condition. Do not come here unless you have a group of four. They WILL pair you up.

Great value course, easy layout

Enjoyed golfing at Indian Boundary. The course layout is fairly wide open, so shot thats hook/slice are still typically playable. The course conditions were good for the cost paid ($49/pp w/ cart) and the pace of play was good, not great. Slight wait at each tee box but never more than a couple minutes. Greens were fairly slow. Friendly staff.

Easy Course very playable

The course is in good condition. The greens are generally good with subtle breaks. Looks like they recently installed new drainage pipes as there are a lot of minor ruts across fairways. Grass in burned out in some areas but rolling the ball slightly will get you to grass. I found the course too easy to be really interesting. I’m an 18 handicap and I shot an 84 on a day when I wasn’t playing my best. Also the round took 4:45 as we waited on every 1st and 2nd shot.

Greens need more attention

The course overall is fairly straightforward and well kept. I felt like the fairways were very dry (like hitting off concrete). The greens were attrocious uneven cuts, players not re-sodding their ball marks and littered with geese dropppings (which suprisingly I had zero 3 puts)!

Introduce your friends to golf by taking them here.

It's a wide open course that is still secluded from the big city that surrounds it. We encountered deer on the course, which was a bonus on a delightful day. Folks, this is not a particularly difficult course. But it's a gem in a major metropolitan area. It's the kind of place you bring friends to give them an appreciation for golf while giving them a chance to score well on a few holes. It's been a wet spring and early summer, which might have contributed to the course being in such good shape. Who cares? I had a great time and a lot of casual golfers will, too.

Indian Boundary Excellent

Played IB on Fathers Day with my son. Course is in excellent shape! It is situated on a natural preserve and we saw a dozen deer the day we played!
The greens are beautiful and deceptively fast. The course was built mid 20th century and the greens are small-which is great!
The course is not long but places a premium on keeping it in the fairway. The rough is not long but thick.
This is a busy municipal course and rounds take a little longer. But it’s still a great venue.
The beverage cart cane by us a half dozen times during the round! The starter and staff are wonderful and friendly. I highly recommend!

Never Again

Half hour waiting after tee time to start. Very unorganized. Fairways were beat up & not well maintained. Pace of play was terrible & no ranger to be found. Won't be going back to this course.

Great course .... but slowwwwwwww

I love this course! Great layout. Great condition. I usually see 10-20 deer on the course. I drive out of my way to play here. But it's soooooo slow. I've never played it in under 5 hours weekends or weekdays. Would be a 5 star course for the conditions and value but too slow.

45 Minute Delay

Course was completely overbooked. Didn't have enough carts for all tee times. Had to wait 45 minutes past tee time. No way would you allow a golfer to show up 45 minutes late, yet when you do it, it's "oh sorry, this happens all the time."

Good Course and Close to ORD

Very nice municipal course. Pace on the front 9 on a Saturday morning was a slow 2:48, but picked up on the back at 2:10, for a five hour round. Very playable. Generous fairways off the tee. Mostly open approaches to the greens. Lots of dog legs but the fairways are tree lined for the most part and well defined. Tees are in decent shape. Fairways cut to a decent length. Greens were slow and a bit bumpy. The rough, while not too tall, will snag your club head. Good bargain at $50.00 for 18, including a cart. very walkable. A few holes have a bit of distance between green to next tee, but not too many, and not overly far.15 minute drive to ORD and easy to find.

Great for practice

No driving range, but good course to play if you're new to the game and just need some practice.
We played after the area had experienced significant rains, so there was a lot of flooding on some parts of the course - not something they could really control, but I think this also slowed the pace of play.
Bugs are really bad back here, to be expected, but bring bug spray. Fairways were chewed up on some holes, greens were ok for the most part, tons of goose droppings all over the place.
Overall, would recommend to someone just looking for practice, don't expect too much.
