Yikes

Look, after reading all of the other reviews, I really dont want to beat a dead horse but....wow. The course conditions are beyond terrible, to the point it really doesnt qualify as a round of golf. No true bounces in the fairway. In fact I started aiming for the rough to find some grass, as there wasnt much in the fairways, and dont get me started on the lack of grass at literally EVERY tee box. Add all of this, and the fact you have the audacity to charge 41 bucks for a round at this goat ranch is highway robbery. 20 bucks at this point, based on the conditions alone, would also qualify as highway robbery. Dont make the same mistake I did, your better off hitting in your backyard than paying a dime to these folks.

$15 course

I hate to do this but I don’t want anyone to repeat my mistake.

Tee boxes and fairways were arguably the worst I’ve ever seen...that includes the $20 municipal courses I play all the time. Add that to paying $35 and that equals never going back.

Prestwick is what 2020 would look like if it was a golf course.

The "Richard" Experience

Let me start off by saying I am not a picky golfer. By that I mean that a course doesn’t not have to be anywhere close to perfect condition for me to have fun. Ultimately what I prefer in a course is a cool layout with holes that do not seem to repeat themselves. IMO the layout at Prestwick is awesome! I absolutely loved the design! We were having fun. The condition of the course is not good. By any means. We had made several comments about the tee boxes having little to no grass. The fairways were not much different. The greens were decent but were so hard that you couldn’t even get a wedge to hold. None the less we were having fun. Like I said, I’m not a picky golfer. Everything was fine and then RICHARD happened!

Here’s what happened.... Richard pulled up as we were finishing up on the 14th green and introduced himself as “the person that takes care of the course” and acknowledged that the course was not in very good shape. He then proceeded to tell us how he doesn’t even allow his employees to drive that close to the green. (We were parked in the rough 10-15 feet from the green). I admit that I was too close to the green. My playing partner apologized and said it won’t happen again. We thought that was the end of it as he returned to his cart but then he got very unfriendly and disrespectful and repeating himself and took it way too far. He was flat out rude! I admit we were too close to the green, but we apologized and said we wouldn’t do it again.

Needless to say, after that the fun was over and Richard had ruined the entire experience for us. Never in my life have been treated so poorly at a golf course as a paying customer. The course is in garbage condition. The design is really cool but with a guy like Richard in charge I fear it will just be a field of grass in a matter of time. If Prestwick doesn’t make a change in Richard’s position they will not last much longer.

Not worth the money

Overall layout is good. Greens in decent shape, slower than neighboring courses. Fairways and tee boxes on the front 9 are atrocious. I shouldn’t be hitting off bare dirt in the fairways or having to find a spot in the tee box where there is sufficient grass to maintain my footing. If this course does not make a serious investment, I doubt it will survive much longer, which would be a shame as there are several nice homes on it.

Kudos

I make it a point to play Prestwick once a season since it became public 3 years ago. It was in rough condition then, yet showed some solid improvement since.

Forward to yesterday/this year and the progress is substantial. The entire team at the club must be recognized for the effort and results. Work remains, but the trend line is notably up. Looking forward to returning already

Prestwick

This course has a good deal of challenging holes. It requires you to hit a good drive and have a mid iron into most greens. The greens are true and roll well that would be the best feature of the course. The rough was thick and requires some strength to get a quality shot towards the green. I am not complaining and for the competitive golfer she/he would appreciate the challenges. The course was not too busy for a mid-morning tee time. The price was fair and didn’t break the bank for a round. I will definitely play Prestwick again.

Friendly staff

The heat index was over 100 so it was nearly unbearable. However, no wait times. Course was in ok shape. A couple of the greens could've been better maintained. However, the staff was the most friendly I'd ever encountered on a public course. The clubhouse guy was overly nice. The greens keeper or the club pro thanked me for filling my divot. Class acts all around. As a Brownsburg resident, I am going to try to play there more often just because of that.

So So

You can tell they are working on it but its still fairly rough. Tee boxes are terrible, traps are hard, and fairways in areas still need some love. I don't believe there was a ball washer on the entire course. Positive note is the greens were very nice. The course is nice and once they get it turned back around I'm sure it will be great but right now I cant imagine I would go back unless the deal was super cheap.

One and done

Played this course today for the first and last time. Condition of the tee boxes and fairways was pretty bad. Greens were decent but not holding wedge shots. The pace of play was not good as there were a bunch of singles behind a very slow threesome that finally decided to let folks play through. The staff was the best thing I experienced at this course. Very friendly and accommodating. Perhaps I’d try again if course conditions were to vastly improve. For now though, it’s one and done.

Huge Disappointment!!

We were so excited to play the one time private COUNTRY CLUB—- WOW were we disappointed!! Absolutely nothing about the place feels country clubish. The parking lot is in disrepair and the clubhouse and the golf paths, it’s a money pit and I wish the ownership/mgmt good luck. I don’t believe the fairway are watered, if they are it was pathetic.
The only, and I mean only, saving grace was the pace of the greens— very good and rolled well; but trying to hold one with a perfectly played wedge was nearly impossible. I was not a fan at all of the layout— drive a golf cart across a busy road TWICE—really. And #9 is a joke- can’t hit driver (from our tees) because of a lake on a Par 5–again really!!
If this place is in GOOD condition, as some of the recent reviews state, it must have been a true goat ranch before!! Don’t let the other reviews fool you— it is NOT worth the price under any circumstances.
Everything about the place is old and run down!!
Honestly I was embarrassed in how poor the place was and I’d never even been there before—- but never again!!
WOW.

Best Value in the Area

If you haven’t played here in the past couple of years, please add this to your list of courses to play. I do not work there and my only ties to this course, other than playing it in college, would be the random member guest tournaments over the years. Now that it is public and under new management, the improvements are obvious.

I’m not quite sure where the prior reviews are coming from but these might be the best greens in central Indiana. Even under extremely wet conditions, the fairways look nice and the staff is extremely friendly. Since this used to be a private country club, you definitely get that feel by the bar/restaurant and other amenities once you walk in.

The only negatives are that the tee boxes could use a little bit of work, either re-sod or pay extra attention to them. The Teebox should not be long or have weeds. If they could make them look anywhere like fairways, they would have something. The driving range is also lacking with no distance markers and also not mowed very tight or level. Lastly the bunkers need some attention which they are admittedly doing. Once those three things get up to the quality of the rest of the course over the summer, I wouldn’t be surprised if they attempted to go back to private..

The layout is more of a shot making course and a little tight but once you get to the greens, you’re in for a treat. Smooth and fair. Easy to read and a lot of fun. As someone who relies on reviews before I play places, please ignore the negative and old ones as much as you can and just give it a shot. For $35, it is the best value around.
