The Pines course at Eagle Creek is a Dye course, though it doesn't have all the usual characteristics of one. It does have a lot of elevation change, but it also does meander back and forth a bit with lots of straightforward holes. Although there are a few doglegs that you need to know where to go/miss. The fairways are in horrible shape, with lots of mud pits and where there is grass it was as long as the rough is on some local courses. Greens were patchy here and there, but ran true. Tees were chewed at times.
It's nothing special, but if you can get on cheap it's worth a go. Wouldn't be a bad course for beginners to learn on.
It's been a while
It has probably been over 15 years since I played this course last. Used to play it a lot when I lived off 46th St. It has changed a bit but for the better and is still a challenge. Nice layout and the scenery is pretty. Changes in elevation are a nice change of pace. Played my wife and two daughters. Nice course for families and juniors.
Eagle Creek is a nice course!
Eagle Creek is a nice track that holds it's own against the more modern courses built in the last 15 years.
Tee Times to close together
need just a little more time between goups
got into slow play
Great Value in Indy
For the price, Eagle Creek is one of the best open to the public courses in Central Indiana. Two Pete Dye courses offer plenty of challenges to all levels of players.
During our late afternoon round, we saw no fewer than 25 deer casually grazing on the course grounds.
For a late summer day, the course was in excellent condition. Greens were quick that day and offered plenty of challenges.
The only thing I was unhappy with was the condition of the sand in the bunkers. I found myself in them a couple of times and both were very hardpan lies and you could see that they don't drain very well. Other than that, the course was a pleasure to play.
We'll definitely be back.
Great value and layout
You can't beat this for a public course. Very good layout, great facilities and friendly people.
Accommodating and friendly staff (Rangers and clubhouse). Sun King on sale! Decent course in very good shape. ..Great value for $15 (Hot Deal)
Nice course. Tees, fairways, and greens were in very good shape. The greens rolled true. We had to wait at the first tee for a but as two groups were in front of us but didn't see anyone in front or behind us for the rest of the round. Pace of play was four hours (not bad). Landscaping crews were annoying on a few holes but that happens in the morning on occasion. Good layout and fairly wide open. I would play here again.
challenging but fair
This is a very spacious county golf course with mainly broad fairways. Greens are in fair condition but nobody fixes ball marks. Range has good distance markers but you are hitting off the original pasture! A few awesome holes. Good place to bring your family.
Not a top rated track like Purgatory or the Fort but the Sycamore offers a great value. Plays like the Fort. Every hole has a new look. Blind tee shots can make your first time more difficult. Trust your game & swing. If you can drive it straight you'll be ok.
Good course for your everyday golfer
Fun course to go out and play which gives you some challenges. The course if long from the whites but you have a lot of fairway to work with on most holes.
The Pines course is average. Some challenging holes and some easy holes. I would definitely recommend the Sycamore course over the Pines. I felt the Sycamore was in better shape.
Course in great condition
This course was in great condition. Having played many public courses in the Indianapolis area, this summer, the fairways and greens at this course, I would rank in the top three. Play moved reasonable pace, with no waiting.
Nice course, nice facility
Played on Sunday with scattered rain in forecast - never had anyone on the holes I front or behind us. Played 18 in 3 hours. Course is in great shape. Nice clubhouse, driving range, putting greens.
Good challenge for challenged golfer
This course was a good test for a golfer who scores slightly higher than bogey golf. The holes generally required multiple good shots to score par or better, but there were few places where a single bad shot doomed you to triple bogey. Plenty of places to recover and not kill the round. Also, they do a great job of playing with doglegs and elevation changes to compensate for some shorter par 4's.
Eagle Creek Golf - The Pines
I really enjoyed this course. It is a great course for an intermediate golfer like myself because the front 9 is pretty difficult but the back 9 is a bit easier. Overall the course conditions were great and I'd definitely play there again in the future.
Eagle Creek Sycamore 2014
Loved this course. Great layout, great facilities. Plenty of practice greens... there are actually two 18 hole courses here; I played the sycamore course and can't wait to play the pines course. The course has many different challenges ranging from rollings hills, bunkered greens, a fair amount of water and plenty of tree lined fairways to lose your ball. The night I played here I saw a total of 12 deer on the course, very pleasing course to the eye, no houses are on the course. I will be playing here again ASAP.
