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!

Always a treat

Love GCI. I could play it everyday and not get bored. I dig the classic layout and routing. Sneaky challenging course and some of the toughest greens in town. Condition was great considering the time of year and recent weather. It’s always in great shape. Can’t wait for the next time.

Great course. Worst staff.

First let’s start with the course. It’s quite good. Greens are great. Fairly quick and not beat up. Fairways are nice bent grass as are the tee boxes. Now to the staff the guy we checked in with fine no issue. But Caleb, the other kid behind the counter has no business being there with his attitude. He was rude he was unwelcoming and I witnessed this with more than just myself but several other customers that were in the shop as well during a brief weather delay. Overall I recommend the course just stay out of the pro shop.

A solid central Indy course

Played Saturday morning, weather was pretty nice, a little breezy.

This is a really great course & establishment. With a plantation feel to the clubhouse, solid turfgrass, mature trees and a creek snaking around the course I wish I lived closer because I'd be here a lot.

Surrounded by cornfields, they've crafted a great course here. The place is well grassed, the greens are huge & fast (took me a while to get that speed down) . The tees could stand to be leveled some, but it's not a distraction; the bunkers are in great shape. We got stuck behind a really slow twosome (a 20 minute par 3 wait comes to mind); I think eventually the ranger got them to speed up a little.

I'd say some local knowledge will help you get around a little better, but I still had a blast. Most holes kinda dog-leg, and there's a few lines off the tee that are risk/reward (over bunkers, etc). With the greens being so big, you need to get your approaches right. The par 3s are a little feast or famine; a couple are long, a couple are short and I like the mix. The par 4s blend longer holes with some scoring holes. The place is flat-out fun.

The clubhouse has nice porch area and an old-school vibe. They've got a really nice double sided range & practice facility. The carts are upgraded with charging ports & the seats are The Goods! I guess they've recently added an annex building for events, etc.

Great place, I'll be back. You should definitely visit too.

Golf Outing Put Us on the Outs

Had I known there was an outing going on I would have considered another course. Great course, just couldn’t enjoy it with the extremely slow pace. The Marshall “Larry” was terrific. He brought us some bottles of water and each of us a sleeve of good balls, hoping to smooth over our wait. He told us they host 60 outings a year.
Nice course and facility. Just check to see if there is an outing going on.

Rainy Round

The course has a nice, classic layout. Lots of trouble in the form of sand or water seem to be in play off nearly every tee. The course is in good shape, unless you spray into areas that have the predictable damage from the recent rain where it would not drain. But the fairways and tees are all good. Greens rolled true and all have a little tilt to them. The warm-up area and putting green was a really nice set up as well. Overall it was a good experience and worth a trip.

Conditions not up to standards

Have played this course for many years. It is a decent course, not great, but has usually been kept up nicely and was enjoyable to play. While I admit iit is early in the season, I have to say that I was disappointed to find that almost every bunker on the course was bad and we never saw anyone doing any work on any of them. Only saw a couple of persons who were mowing. Also, not sure what is going on on hole #2, looks like they are trying to add some bunkers or waste areas on the left side but all that I see is a large area with zero grass and large rocks making it impossible to play out of??? Looks like they have spent a lot of dollars on the practice facility and the event center, but the course is being neglected.

Other Golfers

The course was very nice and quite fun to play. Unfortunately, there were a couple of people that stood out. There were two different groups of two that felt as though they deserved special treatment. The twosome in front of us were playing other fairways more than the ones they were actually playing. The twosome behind us, a father and young son continually hit in on us.

Amazing course

There is a lot of construction going on at this course. However, the fairways and greens are immaculate! The course plays well if you're long off the tee and have control ariund the greens! Simply great golf!

Very Good Course at this Time

The course is in very good shape. We were challenged with slow greens. As noted, there is some construction going on throughout the course in spots, it does come into play on a few holes but is manageable. Pace of play was affected by a foursome playing nine holes for the first time this year. The layout is slightly old school with mature trees lining some of the fairways. Water in some hidden spots so make sure you drive up and locate where you want to land the ball. Bunkers were in good shape.

Staff is easy to deal with and was helpful as we needed it. Great practice facility also. We try and play this every other year and each year we have a very good experience.
