Poor condition

Have played here occasionally for several years and saw conditions deteriorate. Love the layout, but

maintenance of course is depressing. Even with

GroupGolfer discounts, it is not worth the trip from the NE side of Indy under these conditions. Too

many well-kept courses available in area.

Terrible condition

The course is in terrible shape! Crab grass is plentiful throughout the fairways and the tee boxes are a mess. You better be accurate on the approach shot, half the green is marked as ground under repair on most greens. Very disappointed!! Won’t be going back.

Horrible course conditions

Was told when I asked how the course was that they had a fungus issue and they had a temporary green on #10. The rough was very tall and thick, 2-3 greens actually had ropes through the middle because of the fungus problem. Most all greens are not in very good shape at all, just really think this should have been disclosed prior to booking.

Horrible experience

Course was in horrendous shape. Greens were eaten with disease. Patches of dead spots and/or bare. There was not a smooth green on the corse. Staff did not inform us, nor was it noted on GN at time of reservation of our tee time. Staff was asked if they would provide a rain heck or the opportunity to play again, and this was denied. They stated that we should have been informed by their morning staff and even they we were not, there was no efforts to make it right. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!

Terrible Condition

I haven't played in years. This was really disappointing. Crabgrass overtaking fairways and tee boxes (especially number 10). On almost all of the greens, a significant portion of the green had no grass. Tees hadn't been mowed and were terrible. Fairways looked like rough. Greens looked the way the fairways should be (at least where the grass was) I only paid $22 including cart and felt it was way overpriced

Nice day with One Exception

This is a great course and pace of play was outstanding. Fairways and Tees were in tremendous shape, BUTTTTT the greens were horrible. One green (10th) was fairway cut short while they try to reclaim the actual green. Most greens have over 50% damage. The damaged areas are not cut nor are they marked as area under construction to take relief. It appears the course burned up the greens by watering during heat of the day or not watering.

Love this course but you might want to give them a month or so to get the greens back in shape.

So sad

My wife and I played Heartland crossing on July 27, 2018. I have played Heartland many times over the past 17 years. At one time I thought it was the nicest daily fee course on the south side of Indianapolis. That is no longer the case. I knew it had fallen on hard times but never expected it to be so bad. Every part of the course - tee boxes, fairways, greens, etc. were in horrible shape. The greens were especially bad - unputtable. We played for $16.00 each with a Golfnow hot deal and $16.00 was too much to pay for the condition of the course. I hope someone will purchase this coure and restore it to what it once was. I am hoping that will happen but, in the meantime, don't waste your money.

Course is in terrible condition

I've played this course several times this year,. Last month in fact. The greens are in terrible condition, brown spots where grass is dead and large clumps of sand on the greens. The fairways are mostly dead. What a shame the course has fallen to such a bad state. 70%of greens are burnt or dead and 50% of fairways are dead.

They should have refunded our money on site but no such luck.

An Absolute Dump

This is, hands down, the worst conditioned course I've played around Indianapolis in the 3 years I've lived here. Not sure if it's disease, money problems, or likely both. But this is not a course that is worth anyone's time or money in its present condition.

The warning signs were evident from the start when we arrived 35 min before our 7:30 Sunday morning tee time and beat the workers to the course. It only went downhill from there as we practiced on the putting green and noticed large dead patches on it and elsewhere. As evidenced by the attached photos most of the small greens on the course were dead, with sand or mud replacing grass for large patches - they were basically unputtable. Where there was grass it was mowed at different heights, so there were stripes on the green, as well as parts around the fringe that were missed completely by the mower. The mower also left grass clippings behind that had to be wiped away when we even attempted to putt.

The rest of the course had not been mowed at all. The grass in my backyard is shorter than the tee boxes, and I haven't mowed in a week. The fairways and rough were patchy at best. The sand, which is everywhere on the course, is unraked and thin. All the bunkers are deep as well, so this was particularly penal if you even attempt to hit out of them. The rough was very lush, and we spent a lot of time hunting for balls one bounce off the fairway. Add to that no one fixing any divots or anything, and yeah, you get the picture.

It's been a while since I've said paying $15 to ride 18 holes was a ripoff, but this was an absolute ripoff. Sad, because the course is a Nick Price layout, and would be very challenging if it were in playable condition. But this is to the point where it needs to be shut down and reworked before anyone sinks another dime into playing the place. Run away from any deals here, it's just not worth it.

Deteriorating Course Conditions

Greens overall in bad shape. Many burnt areas had been sanded where there is no grass. A few of the smaller greens only had partial grass coverage. What grass was growing was fairly long and slow pace putts.

Tee boxes average. A few of the boxes did not have the markers out in place. Fairly tall grass and a few weeds, but no big bare spots.

Fairways average. Grass was a little long but had been mowed. No weeds and full grass coverage with no bare areas or ground under repair.

Sand traps were mostly groomed and in average to above condition. Some were hard and needed more sand. No weeds in them.

Rough had been mowed with some thick areas that would suck down errant balls. Tall grass and waste areas in good shape.

Pace of play was excellent on a Sat afternoon.

Overall we had fun and a good round. Paid $31 to play and would've liked to see better conditions as other deals are out there for nicer places. Probably won't go back this year unless a special circumstance. Hope some improvements in green conditions are in the works.

Close to the end

Management clearly doesn’t understand how close they are to loosing the course. They are extremely close to loosing several of the greens. There is no excuse for this with the summer we’ve had. You can tell that they have skimped on maintenance for quite some time now. The course is a great design that is in a mediocre neighborhood that probably doesn’t get the traffic to be profitable, which leads to poor maintenance. They seem to be headed for the same fate as saddle brook. They need to do something quickly. I live close by so I hope that doesn’t happen, but I will also not be playing this course again anytime soon unless they are giving green fees away figuratively speaking.

Horrible conditions

This course has a pretty good layout, but honestly have never played a course in worse conditions. 4 of the 9 holes had big sand spots all over them. The fairways, rough and sand are horrible as well. The pace of play was horrible. Overall terrible experience.

Great course for all handicaps

We was very happy to play here. We haven’t played at Heartland Crossing in almost 4 years. We arrived early and course wasn’t busy, we was able to tee off about an hour early. Overall course was in great condition. There was a handful of greens that were a little worse for wear but still very playable. Look forward to playing again soon!
