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.

Left wanting...

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...

Wet

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.

Good Value

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.

Good Value

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.

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!

Its getting better

Was in decent shape. Lots of leaves. Wish it was in another person's hands to bring it back to its glory. Greens were good.
