Excellent course all aroind

There is nothing bad to say about this course. Everything is top notch here. There course is in excellent condition. It always is but it was spectacular for this time of year. The off-season rate made it a good value. The regular rate is pricey but the course is worth it. If you get that chance to play here...Do it!!

If course is undergoing maintenance golfers should be advised! JUST COMMON COURTESY.

Booked a round online, NO mention of any course maintenance being done. Once we start our round we find that they are purging the water lines and many of the holes are not playable. Add to that the pro shop allows a 6-some of inconsiderate young golfers to jump ahead of several groups already on the course., causing a backup for the groups behind. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? WHY ARE 6-SOMES EVEN ALLOWED ON A BUSY DAY? ....This is a nice layout but the staff here is lousy, not the first time we have run into issues with the pro shop staff. Done with this place!

nice golf course

the layout was very nice and the staff was very nice. we were paired with two gentlemen who played the course many times before and were very helpful. especially when the in-cart gps warned us about blind shots on a couple of holes. some very difficult holes as well as a couple pretty easy holes. I'd recommend this to all.

One of My Favorites

I live in Indianapolis and have played at Prairie View several times. It never disappoints! Even late in the season, this course was in great shape. I feel extremely fortunate to live so close to such a fantastic course. My only complaint - unless you can find a deal through Golf Now, it's not a cheap place to play. But hey, you get what you pay for, right?

Cold strong winds

A small pet peeve I have acquired from nicer courses is the lack of ball washes on courses. Maybe they don’t need to be on every hole. But to have none at all is a bit much. Fall time is considerably more prone to a muddy ball that would be in the mist of leaves. Being able to spot your ball from a well struck shot is nice. But the course was next to empty due to some very high winds in the 20s I think. Ball shaping was a must. I’m a new golfer, but can manage to do some really nice things throughout the course of a round. So for me, it was about exploring a quality course in less than ideal conditions. I try to push myself through personal challenges. And today was not easy.

2nd time at the course as good as the 1st

Played the course after a previous day of rain. The course drains very well, particularly the bunkers. Greens were a little hard to read but rolled very well for late October. I would highly recommend this course for late season play!

Some very good deals in the clubhouse for end of season - golf shoes, clothes, etc.

Beautiful course, great year-round

This was my first time playing the course. Played after a night of cold rain, the course drained very well. I played this round with a member and he kept talking about how slow it was, which tells you how fast it is in the summer months.

Great course, wonderful design. Highly recommend.

1st time at Prairie View - won't be the last!

I had heard about this course from a number of friends but never had the opportunity to play it.

What a mistake in not finding this course before!

For late October (and 2" of rain the previous 2 days) the course was in great shape; fairways were manicured, traps were in good shape and the greens rolled very well. I definitely recommend playing the appropriate tees based on your handicap and age - this course can bite you if you don't!

Beautiful Golf Course

Excellent condition despite being cart path only due to heavy overnight rains. The staff was friendly & courteous. Beautiful layout with a good combination of links & parkland style holes. Greens rolled true. Strategically placed bunkers and hazards provided ample challenge on stray shots. An overall pleasurable experience. A must play when in the Indianapolis area.

Help the course conditions players

Pace of play was pretty good.. I don’t know, if players know what those black boxes on the cart are for. There are not for drinks, but to use the sand and seed to refill divots. There wereof many divots not filled in out there. Also, I fixed 5-10 ball marks on every green. There were some black splotches on the greens that didn’t effect play , but looked a bit ugly. It’s a good golf experience and can get better , if the golfing public would fill in divots and fix ball marks.

Nice course but overrated....

Nice layout in good condition. The Pro is arrogant and does not know how to treat customers. Will not be back, too many other places to play where our patronage is appreciated.
