Prairie View Golf Club

Laid out across 206 acres along the banks of the White River, the course is characterized by rolling prairie land interspersed with stands of oaks and sycamores. In addition to the course’s more than 80 bunkers, five lakes, a stream and natural wetlands provide diverse challenges to golfers playing any of the course’s five sets of tees.

Great course, very good condition. However, the sand traps were essentially packed as if it had just rained. The surfaces were either very hard or slightly soft. It was almost impossible to determine how to stroke the ball out of the sand. I realize it had rained on Sunday night, but no effort had been made to rake the sand and stir it up enough to be at least consistent. Other than that, great course, challenging layout and the conditions were perfect.
Hi Gerry, thank you for the five-star review. We appreciate your detailed feedback, and we look forward to your return soon.
Wait a few weeks it'll be perfect
Obviously its early so a conditions review isn't the greatest. In two or three weeks the greens will be perfect like always but they're still recovering from being punched. so very slow and bumpy. other that that it was nice to get out and the course is great.
Hi, thank you for the four stars! We appreciate your feedback, and we can't wait to see you again soon.
Hi, thank you for the five stars! We are glad that you enjoyed Prairie View Golf Club. Come back again soon.
Everything was great, except for the greens.
It’s early spring so in 2-3 weeks the greens will be perfect but they had airified in the past few weeks and that made putting no fun at all. Love the golf course and the staff is great. Will be back when greens are healed.
Hi, thank you for the four-star review! We appreciate your feedback, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Pretty good overall condition for this time of the year however they could have mowed the greens and fairways. Other courses in the area have already mowed and the difference is striking. Great layout though and I will be back in the summer.
Hi Nick, thank you for the five-star review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our layout. We appreciate your feedback, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Hi Jon, thank you for the five-star review! We are glad that you had a great round of golf at Prairie View Golf Club. We'll see you again soon! #prairieviewgc
This was our first time playing the course. Liked it very much. Great layout, interesting. Plan to play it again.
Hot deal on a cold day
Started out chilly, so it took a couple of holes for this Florida transplant to get going, but I had a great time. The course will challenge you, and requires good shot placement, but will also reward you for good decisions (and vice-versa). 4th time on the course, and enjoy it more each time.
What a great golf course!
This was my first time to play this course. I was so impressed! The greens, fairways, and tee boxes were immaculate. I don't have a single negative comment - only positive!!! One of the "best for the money" courses ever...
Nicest course in the area
Gorgeous place. Robert Trent Jones design does not disappoint. 2nd time out on this course and can’t wait to get back.
Expensive Course with Poor Conditions
Although the tees and fairways were in good shape, the greens were horrendous. The greens had recently been aerated and sanded. Slow as molasses and a game of Pachinko bouncing off small pebbles, burned out spots and plugs put in to try to remedy poor quality of greens.
Guys we were paired with said course only offers tee times when course is in poor shape. This was a premium rate and deserved premium conditions. Disappointed.
There was no beverage cart and one lady at bar at turn with line 6 deep. Just grabbed a glass of water and went on. Didn’t want to hold up play. At the end of the day, there were service people wiping off clubs for a tip. Should have deployed them in more needed service areas.
Pace of play was a little slow. Had to wait several times. Perhaps I should have turned around when the guy at the pro shop said it was busy.
The weather was great! Course was in great condition! Staff friendly as always. I got to play with an assistant pro as there will be the IN PGA tournament beginning on 7/9. Incredible to see how easy a 73 looks...HA! Thank's Prairie View.
Prairie View is one of the top golf destinations in the Indianapolis area. The course is in great shape, the greens are fast and immaculately cares for. Staff is friendly and it felt like the cart girl pasted us on every other hole. I will be back.
Always a Good Round
Prairie View is a challenging layout that does give some chance to score if you pick the right tees. But it's not a bombs away course as several holes involve dialing back and hitting to a target with less than a driver. The course is in good shape, though there were a few patchy spots here and there, such as on the 17th green. It also has some of the best practice facilities around, and having Big Lug in the clubhouse is great for a mid and post-round meal. Try the poutine!
This place is absolutely unreal. It was extremely busy but didn’t inhibit a great round on an unbelievable course/layout. Staff treats the general public as well as they do their members; friendly, accommodating, proactive. A must-play whether you live in town or are visiting/passing through.
This was my first time at Prairie View even though I have lived in the area for 30 years. Why have I never played it before? I must be an idiot. It is one of ( if not the) best courses in Central Indiana. My first comment to my buddy was on the practice green. I said this looks like astroturf. It was perfect. I could go on and on about course, but words are limited. The staff was extremely kind, and there were rangers on the course. Two more words.....PLAY IT !
Prairie View continues to deliver
Great course, great facilities, great on-site team - all for a great price.
