Nearing return to former glory

Always have enjoyed playing here when in the area, and was disappointed to have seen it fall into disrepair, but new owner has dramatically turned around the conditions in just a few short years. Yes there are still some areas that need attention, but the greens were fantastic and fairways looked good. Staff was very friendly and accommodated quickly when I asked about playing an additional 18.

Currently Best Southside Indy Course

Heard the golf course has new ownership and mgt so decided to give it a try. Huge difference from when I played there 2 yrs ago. They are doing things the right way. Very conscious of Social Distancing & providing sanitized carts (even set up outside to check us in). The quality of the course is night and day compared to what it has been in the past. Hopefully they continue trending in this direction - other southside courses are being neglected so definitely hitting this place up on the reg!

Making a comeback

For an early March round I wasn’t sure what to expect. The last time I played here it was in awful shape but can honestly say it was in better shape today than it was two summers ago.

Sure the greens were a bit bumpy but the grass hasn’t grown let alone cut.

Cudos to the new ownership for bringing it back to life and look forward to coming back later in the year.

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.
