The day went very well from check in to finish. We were a twosome and 2 foursomes let us play through which was greatly appreciated and help keep our round moving. The course was in great shape

Fun course

Haven't played here in years. Great grass, tough greens. Practice your approach and putting cuz its gonna matter. Beautiful course with some weird layouts occasionally but definitely worth a trip if you're in Indianapolis. I'll be back this summer for sure. Great course for you if you like your driver.

This course is enjoyable to play and is in great shape. I was pleasantly surprised with the green quality and the tee to green lushness. There are 2 holes that play a little quirky but dont really detract from the overall appeal. I find the back 9 to be a much more enjoyable layout. For the price this is a great option. Well worth the money.

Horrible booking.

I schedule a 8:50am tee time as a single. I get to the course and there is an outing getting ready to start, 17 teams of 4. Now normally when a place books an outing they close it down to the public for a certain amount of time, not these money hungry people. Then to top it off I get forced to join a group of 3 that spoke very little english and we couldn't communicate. It was the worst round of gold I have ever played, almost 3 hours to finish 9 holes. I didnt even bother with the other 9. Would not recommend this course to anyone.

Fun course

Winding River is a fun course to play. Challe ging enough but enough short holes to try and post a low score. I have played this course for years and have always enjoyed it. Pace of play depends on time of day. Avg round in peak time is 4.5 hrs. But off hours easy 3.5. Greens are fast in summer, and leaves are heavy in the fall. Bring bug spray cause it is near water and mosquitoes can be an issue. Overall enjoyable course, I only wish they would hold and amatuer stroke play event. That would he cool.
