Worst experience ever

We had to play the front twice because the back was going to take 3 plus hours. No one at the course seemed to care. They booked an outing AND stacked up tee times.

hidden parkland

river glen is a bit secluded off busy allisonville road in fishers. It is a great parkland layout with lots of mature trees, well placed bunkers and undulated greens. Its one of my favorite layouts in the city. There has been some minor water damage that affects both the fairways and greens, so the course isn't in pristine shape, but still very playable. The bunkers could use bit more sand and work, but I feel like I am really splitting hairs. This is a top 10 course in the city, and I wouldn't hesitate to make it my home track.

Wonderful Condition

Over the years, I’ve played this course many times. The course is in the best condition ever. Tees, fairways and greens superb (though somewhat slow this day). Looking forward to the next round.

Bring the Bug Spray

River Glen is in solid shape from tee to green. Greens were very slippery and rolled true. Rough was very lush, and had to hunt for balls even 1 bounce off the fairway.

The course itself is a little pricey but has a decent layout. Lots of doglegs, so position matters off the tee. It's a course you need to play a few times to know the way around. Not a fan of how the 1st and 5th greens back into one another. The last 4 holes that are in the neighborhood are unlike the previous ones that are in the river bed, though the river isn't ever in play (a few ponds and streams are though). Definitely bring your bug spray for the holes by the river!

Overall it's not in the league of its neighbor across the river (Prairie View) but it's worth a go for the good conditions.

Must Play

Fun layout, excellent condition, friendly staff. This is not a very talked about course but it should be. Some of the fairways were being revamped on the front 9 but they rerouted some holes around it and you can't blame a course for making improvements. I can't wait to go back when it's all complete.

Beautiful and Challenging

I played four rounds here this past weekend and was very impressed with my experience. The course was in great shape. You're forced to work the ball right to left and left or right. All of the greens were sloped back to front, so you must make sure that you are below the hole or three putts will be very common. The facilities were very nice, although the practice area could be a little better. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The selection in their tavern was a little limited. On Fridays they have beer, brats, burgers, and hot dogs for $1.50 each. You can beat that!!!
