With a convenient location that is easily accessible from any of the quad cities, Indian Bluff is one of the premier golfing destinations for both eastern Iowa and western Illinois. The 18-hole golf course offers a challenging but fair round that players of all skill levels can enjoy. The hilly terrain is dappled with mature trees and a few natural ponds and lakes. The tight, tree-lined fairways and undulating greens demand accuracy. There are two particularly tricky par-5 holes where you'll face blind shots to narrow landing areas and a few of the par 3s can seem especially long. Strategically placed bunkers frame most of the greens but water comes into play only occasionally, most notably on the seventh hole where a sprawling lake nearly makes an island green.

This course is very accessible and roomy to play. For getting out on a course for fun in the sun this is great. Variety of distances and might find time for practicing shots. Especially good for average senior golfer like myself. Lot of local special events and city owned. Any day out golfing is a good day.

Course conditions are always better than expected. Staff does a great job here at this muni. A couple holes are a little quirky (and difficult) but overall a great golf experience for The money.

Nice little track. Not a long course but there are some holes you have to put the ball in the right spot off the tee and most of the greens are smaller than average. Greens are always in great condition.

Trees around course make a fall golf outing very enjoyable. While 4 holes are not well designed there are other which make for a great casual day. Not a TPC but good effort for public course.

A quite beautiful little course with rolling tree lined fairways, smooth fast and receptive greens, and even nice bunkers. Many tee shots don't require driver and require more of placement for angles to greens. Great variety of par 3s. There is 1 par 5 that is a 3 shot because of narrow almost blind landing areas and nearly unreachable carries, and 1 par 4 is hard to see from the tee due to driving through some trees. That said it was a lot of fun to play and great value.

The course had scheduled an outing at mid-morning and had no marshaling of their progress, Those groups behind became three groups on each tee waiting for the outing. We played 11 holes in 3 1/2 hours and gave up. There was a 5 hole gap between two of the outing foursomes. I had called in to the clubhouse, but they did not seem to care!!!

The course was in good shape, especially considering all the rain we have had in this area. My reservation was supposed to include a cart, but they did not allow carts on the course that day. They did give me a pull cart.<br/> To be honest, there are some holes on this course that need some revising, due mainly to the huge hills and no fair landing area. But at the great price I got, it was worth it.
