A perfect representation of what golf in Indiana should be
This is a course that's a perfect example of how to build a natural feeling course in Indiana. There isn't much forced elevation change, but instead hazards placed in areas that make golfers make decisions about their next shot.
It's a wonderful challenge and a great atmosphere. I only wish it was a bit cheaper so I could play it more often.
End of season drought has the course pretty hard and we somehow got stuck in the middle of an outing but overall a good course.
There is some water hazards and a creek that wanders through the fairways making shot planning/club selection very important.
Middle Tier Public Course
Greens in good shape, and bunkers were raked and playable. Course ground is very hard so if you miss fairway ball will run forever since there’s no rough to stop it. Worth the price you pay and a good backup if premier Indy courses are booked.
Staff attitude needs work!
Course is in great shape. Greens are beautiful. However, the staff takes your money and doesn’t care about the pace of play. Called the clubhouse on #6 to tell them it was extremely backed up. There were 5 groups on the hole. Their comment was “you can see the course is busy.” Played behind a 5-some all day and a 2-some that hit 2 shots all day long. Waited on every shot and had they cared to put a ranger on the course, it could have been managed. The 5-some was 2 holes behind the group in front of them. For the money, I would expect them to keep groups moving. I doubt I’ll be back.
Sunday Morning Hot Deal
We booked a Hot Deal on Golf Now for Sunday morning. We started out behind a threesome but partway through the front nine we ended up behind five players that looked like a family. They were really slow but stopped after nine holes. The back nine was much better. I really like the course.
Great Course in Beautiful Conditions, but ...
This was a great day: weather was fantastic, course was in great conditions, staff was wonderful, I played well, and thoroughly enjoyed the day, however I used one of the last monthly tee time credits to fully pay for my round which GolfNow has decided to stop issuing.
Without warning prior to renewing my subscription as a GolfPass+ member, GolfPass has reduced the monthly promotion to only $10. In a recent call to a Customer Service Rep, he advised that members had requested this. So instead of receiving free round valued from $20 to $62, subscribers would rather save $10. Hard to believe.
Great value and fun course
Played silver tees today. Greens in great condition. Hazards well placed to keep me accurate and on my distances. Really fun!!
Course was in great shape. Very good greens. Excellent practice facilities.
Sneaky Greens are the Challenge at this Course
The course layout is fairly straight forward and interesting (with some interesting doglegs, a few raised greens, carries over a creek etc.).
The greens are what really make this course somewhat challenging because if you have never played the course and don't know the undulations, you can hit a great shot and watch it roll away from the pin.
The other interesting course feature is the creek that runs through it. You need to hit a good drive on a few holes to carry the creek on your second shot. The nice thing is that the carts all have GPS systems and give you a good view of the hole and distance to the creek or other hazards.
A few Par 3s are actually quite long from the forward tees. For example, Hole 3 (longest par 3) was 171 and for most women that would be a driver. Another par 3 required you to hit a 3 or 5 wood (depending on your distance)_
Pace of Play was 4 hours and 40 Mins. A bit long for a weekday. The front nine was played in 2 hours which was OK the back really slowed up. There is no starter so I suspect that a group jumped on the back nine. So my 4-Star rating was really due to pace of play since I have played a number of courses (mid-week) in under 4 hours.
Also, if you like to warm up before your game there is a nice driving range, putting green, and a very nice bunker and chipping area too (which you don't see at too many public courses).
Overall, if I lived in Indiana, near the course, I would be happy to play it all the time. It has enough variety to keep it interesting. I would guess that it can get really "interesting" if you play the course on a windy day!
