Getting back on track

General course conditions continue to improve under new management. Greens were dramatically improved compared to this spring when I last played it. Hopefully with the greens back in good shape, they will be able to start addressing other needs such as bunker rehab and fairway drainage. This course has always been one of my local favorites, and it was sad to see it gradually decay. But it is definitely trending in the right direction and I look forward to playing it more next year. Keep up the good work!

A hidden gem reincarnated!

This course has been around for a while but seems like a new course to me! I had not played it in decades and decided to give it a try - boy am I glad I did!

The course is extremely playable, yet challenging. The greens were in excellent shape - undulating but rolling true.

Fairways were outstanding, considering it was Fall.

There were very few people on the course so pace of play was outstanding. I would highly recommend this course to anyone; if it wasn't so far away from my house this would be my home course!

Nice course

Have been playing this course since it opened in 1998. Had always been a great course to play was was always in great shape. Several years ago something happened that it began to fall in disrepair. Played this course twice this year and was pleasantly surprised by the changes taking place. Heard new management took over and they are now putting some money back into the course to bring it back to where it was or even better. Last time I played the bunkers were still in the process of being redone and repaired but the rest of the course was looking good. Very happy to see this as this is a very nice course to play for all levels. Definitely returning to play more often next season.

the "NEW" Links at Heartland Crossing

The new owners and staff have turned this course around in less than a year. All the greens are now back to a great condition. I'm happy because this is my favorite course. Challenging course but not overwhelmingly difficult. Respect the sand. You will use all the clubs in your bag at this course. A nice variety of holes. Enjoyable.

Hard work and dedication paying off

I first played this course 5 years ago when the Indiana PGA used Heartland Crossing as a state open qualifier. It was okay then but in the time since, the course hit some hard times. Over the last 6-months, you can see that ownership and management are working hard to put Heartland Crossing back on the map of great Indiana public golf courses. Give them another 12 months and this course will most certainly be the best option on the southside again.

Course coming back to life!

New team at Heartland has turned this course and event center around. All greens are coming back nicely. The bunkers are being worked on daily. There was a tournament going on after we played as well as an open house later in the week. The course has come back to life. Check it out!

New Owners, Pro, and Superintendent!

This course has done a complete turnaround. From the clubhouse to the course, it is coming along nicely. I encourage those that haven’t played for a while to stop by. You will notice a huge difference from last year. The greens are coming in back nicely and the bunkers are much improved. Prices are right and staff is friendly.

Worst greens I’ve ever seen on such a nice course

This is a very nice course- a fun track... but the very worst greens I’ve ever seen. Large patches of missing grass on just about every hole. One green was so far gone they had the green closed and cut a new green into the fairway.... just unbelievable. I got a great deal on Golf Now, but won’t be going back. Real shame as the course is fun to play and challenging!

Nice golf course in good condition.

Played May 28, 2019 and the course was in very good condition. My only complaint would be the quality of the sand traps. Overall a pleasurable course to play and a good value for the money. I especially liked the scorecard/booklets with the layout of each hole, nice touch for folks not familiar with the course layout. I'll definitely play this course again.

This course has rebounded

My brother, son and myself played Memorial Day. The course was in very nice condition in spite o all rain we have gotten of late. We played 18 holes and cart in 3 hours and 15 minutes. Had it not rained really hard we would’ve been done even sooner. Course has a few fixes but overall very glad with improvements.

Not worth the money

I have played in the past but this might be my last time playing here. The price is reasonable if the conditions weren’t so bad. There was one hole with no green, so couldn’t even putt. There was a terrible smell in several parts of the course like sewage was draining in the course. I went to is the restroom and it was swarming with flies, worst smell I have ever smelt in my life, toilet clogged. I opened the door and had to run away it was so bad. I wouldn’t wish my worst enemy step foot in that place.
I did not speak with anyone in the clubhouse as I was just ready to leave. If they cleaned up a few things it could be a really nice course but not sure if I will ever go back if I’m paying.
