Coffin belongs in a coffin. This course is a dump from start to finish. If you like crab grass, this is your kind of place as it's everywhere, including all tee boxes, "fairways" and rough - of which it was almost impossible to tell between the fairway/rough since neither were mowed and it was all crab grass. If there wasn't crab grass, it was because there was no grass from extensive water damage. The greens are beat to heck too.with almost all of them having large bare patches that were impossible to putt through.
The layout has potential if they took care of it, such as the holes along the river (5-7), and 13-15 which were nice with elevation change. But the course is in such awful shape that I would not recommend getting close to it, let alone playing it if you value your time and money. I paid $35 to ride 18, and it was $34,99 too much for this place. I can't even recommend it to learn upon for beginners in this shape. Run far away from this place.
Coffin, a challenge but fun for all
I grew up close to this course and became familiar with it's rolling terrain and majestic trees at an early age and with it's overall beauty rarely found in a city course. In the 90'a the course took on some major changes,but the beauty remained and the challenges of the course were increased making one of my favorite places play and to bring friends.
Being a municipal course unfortunately it does not get all of the attention it truly deserves,but it is still worth taking the time to enjoy this age old beauty not more than 2 to 3 miles from downtown Indy.
Disappointing - don’t waste your money
Used to be an enjoyable layout. Have let course deteriorate to crabgrass all over fairways and tees. Why does Indy Parks department allow the lessor of course have such deplorable conditions.
This is a tough time of year to provide a review - October - as it was a little windy and there were leaves all over the place making it hard to find the ball and putt. I expected the course to be in better shape, but there were many bare spots and the tee boxes were quite rough. Greens were generally good, although they were recently cut. I got a deal on GolfNow, that is what drew me there, but I would want to see improvements in the course to be drawn back.
Not good value
I was looking forward to playing Coffin as I had already played Riverside and South Grove. Like the layout, greens were great as was staff. The fairways, well there were none. Had to search for a patch of grass to hit from in the middle of every fairway bar number one. Way over priced for the conditions
Good layout, wet round
Played in the rain which may have affected pace of play. Fairways had many bare spots and we had to use several forward tees because others were being seeded. Most greens were in great shape.
An old favorite
First round at Coffin in a couple of years, course is atypical of the area - unique layout along a river with some elevation changes. A few big changes - a Foot Golf course has been incorporated int the front 9; a redesign of the big downhill par 5 15th hole; and a number of big trees down from the storms this summer. All-in-all Coffin delivers as a better than usual muni(just play the painfully plain South Grove across the river for comparison). Except for where there's been standing water in the low areas, fairways are in good shape, greens are true and as with so many area tracks, bunkers could use some love. Coffin has a few less-than- distinctive holes, but the good ones really stand out.
dont waste your money
Coffin should not be open. Their were trees down all over the course due to recent storms. The 1st fairway was totally mud. The grass hadnt been cut for weeks on some holes and it was like a recently cut hay field. The rough was so high in spots that the ball was unplayable. There was not one bunker with sand and playable. We wanted to leave after the front nine...
Course is struggling to recover from flooding. Some fairways in tough shape. Greens in good shape. Course needs a couple of weeks of dry weather and maintenance. It is a beautiful place.
very small track
this course has very nice greens. well maintained. the rest of the course is average at best. poor fairways confusing layout and narrow playing areas on some holes. at the time of play the course had suffered from some flooding that made play challenging.
Classic older course
Greens in good condition. Tees need leveling. Sand traps are more clay than sand; need some maintence. Ponds need aeration; lots of algae. Weeds, especially thistle, need to be sprayed. Staff very courteous & friendly.
Nice, challenging layout but below average conditions
First time playing here. Staff was friendly, layout was pretty challenging (good amount of water, mounds, and/or bunkers guarding greens). Liked a few of the holes along the White River. Wish the fairways were a little better kept. Borderline goat ranch on some holes. Think it might help if they went "cart path only" on most, if not all holes, to maintain course conditions. I'll be back, but I'm not racing to go back.
Fun little course for the value. I ended up paying about $20 on a "Hot Deal" through my Golf Now app on a weekend, but I don't think I would pay much more than that to play this course. Some interesting holes and overall in pretty good shape, but minimal amount of yardage markers was extremely frustrating.
Could be a Great Course
Friendly staff and good looking fast food (didn't eat) was countered by some of the worst course conditions that I've seen. Plenty of weeds and thick grass clippings made it imperative that you were accurate. The practice green is useless, have anthills on it, and does not represent the greens on the course. The course layout was a treat, with elevated tees and greens, several doglegs and relatively easy par 3s.
Challenge 18th hole
Three balls disapperaed with my tee shot. the forth remained on the rough before fair way. To get a par on 18th hole became my golf aim.
The course is centrally located and well maintained. Variation in elevation was a real plus, mature course with scenic river views.
I highly recommend this course.
Nice mix of hazards and open fairways to challenge all levels. Very picturesque, lots of mature trees.
Love this course..
It was a little iffy with it being the beginning of fall, and all the leaves fallen. I definitely would recommend this course to anyone, and it's pretty tough but at the same time very playable! Great Golf Now candidate!
