Great Course, Greater Price Tag

My father and I were in the greater Indianapolis area for a father-son weekend and after researching the best course options landed on Prairie View. Based on the course marketing and other reviews, our expectation were set high. While the course was above average in most aspects and weather was perfect, we both left questioning the investment in these 18 holes. At $90 per person, the course conditions left much to be desired. A dry summer may contribute to dry fairways and greens, but $90 a round should be more than enough to ensure conditions are at least adequate which was not the case. The fairway and green conditions were indicative of an average (at best) golf course. Additionally, on a less-than-busy Saturday morning we were forced to be paired with two others for our tee time, despite having no one on the course other than the very next group behind us. This took away greatly from the father-son aspect of our trip. Overall, we enjoyed our experience but I would not recommend playing Prairie View for more than $50-60 per round. Similar courses in our home area are priced significantly more reasonably and I am confident better value options exist in the Indianapolis area (e.g. other patrons of the course recommended we go to Purgatory the next day). BOTTOM LINE: Prairie View lends a great experience, but the price tag is unnecessarily high for what you get.

Seriously?

Great course but traps need work.
But you waited 2 1/2 months to ask for my review so I can’t help you with details. 2 1/2 months. Seriously?

Layout is challenging, greens were rolling, and beer was delicious. What more could you ask for?

Great Experience

The course was in great condition, greens weren’t extremely fast but fast enough and were very receptive to approach shots. Tees and fairways were in great condition and the layout was challenging. Normally I don’t spend this much but weekend morning round, and I don’t feel like I was cheated. I would come back for sure. (Handicap: 9.5)

Fair track

Prairie view was in great condition and it’s an excellent layout. If you hit your spots, reguardless of what tee you play from you will be rewarded. There are several intimidating approaches but missing correctly will result in a good score. Front 9 took 1:40 with a foursome. Back took. 2:40. The hold up was at least three groups in front of mine.

Rough

Fairways and greens were in excellent shape! Staff was welcoming and 1st class as always. It Seemed like the first cut of rough hadn’t been mowed in a few days. Myself and several others I came across lost several balls just feet off the fairway.
