One of the best walking courses in town
I have reviewed Sahm on more than one occasion previously, and the course continues to grow on me. It isn't difficult or overly visually intimidating, but it has a ton of character that allows any golfer to enjoy the course. I think I have finally learned to tame the 12 hole beast as I lipped out for birdie last time. A big bend around the trees is the play off the tee! Great customer service and fun time playing as always. Course was in usual late November shape.
One of the best walking courses in indy
Sahm is a great walking course as it is older, relatively flat and the tees and greens are close enough together. It stays pretty busy being in the heart of the Castleton. The greens normally are some of the most pure in the city that i have played. The staff is super friendly.
The course was pretty beat up when we played and there were pock marks all over the greens. There was a moderate amount of water damage, but the spring rain was torture on all courses around the area. The sand could use work and the practice facilities are moderate at best.
Sahm is always a great time and genuinely one of my favorite courses in Indy. I would say give it a go anytime!
Excellent day at Sahm on Sunday
Even though it was Sunday. The course moved very well only waited on a couple of shots. Weather was good and the course in good condition.
A great fun course
The greens and fairways were in great shape had a great time will definitely be back
Sahms is a great course to play. The only problem we had was the pace of play due to a family playing very slow and would not let faster players play thru. I believe this was very rude.
Fun and easy course
I think this is a great course for a duffer like me. Hard to get into too much trouble. Long drives are not important, as most holes are manageably short. Fairly flat piece of land, so you are almost always playing from level ground, so that is nice. Very little water or sand, so most of your trouble is well placed trees. I would look at this course like a higher end, very well maintained "muni" type course
Great Walking Course
I have played Sahm about a dozen times now, and I always enjoy the round. The course is fairly easy as there are very few hazards on the course. The greens roll very true and putt as well as anything in the city. The price point is excellent for walking 18 holes in the city. It is pretty flat which makes for a great walking round. The staff is always friendly and able to help out. I have heard horror stories of people taking 5-6 hours to play the course, but I have never experienced this.
Good Course, Good Value
The course was in great condition and a good value for the price.
Hot Saturday at Sahm
It was Saturday at one of the few good public courses on the north side so I expected it to be slow but as usual even though the pace seemed slow… we still got around in about 4 hours which is usually the case even when it is slow. There have been days when we played in 2 1/2 hours at Sahm so it all evens out.
Solid Course but nothing special
Sahm's is a great course for the price. It's fairly open and not too difficult. Definitely on our list of regular spots. Staff is great.
This, being "Dye's first 18 hole course", is pretty straightforward by any standard. Some of the Dye hallmarks are there, like small chipping areas and greens that you need to hit for a spot and not necessarily the pin. But there is very little water or sand to trip you up, so the greens and mature trees are the primary defense. They ran a little slower than others around town, but rolled true. Some doglegs give room to cut the corner leaving short approaches if you do. It has a reputation of beings slow and packed, but we got there early and breezed through in 3 hours as a twosome. It won't knock your socks off, but you can do worse than here,
If you are looking for a long challenging course, go elsewhere. Sahm is a great course for sneaking in a quick round and knocking off some rust. This an extremely scoreable course, with Par 5's that are reachable in 2 and a couple driveable par 4's. It is pretty cool to say you played Pete Dye's first 18-hole design, but don't expect it to be similar to his more recent layouts. Lots of open space, so despite short length, you can knock your driver around all day if you so please. About as good a value as you can find in the Indy area.
