River Glen Country Club
Laid out on the east banks of the White River in the town of Fishers, this par-71 Gary Kern design offers a pleasant parkland round of golf. As a country club that is open for public play, River Glen serves up a friendly atmosphere and superb course conditions. Recent renovations have elevated the course in the eyes of locals and visitors alike, and it is regarded as one of Hamilton County’s best places for a round.

I was visiting my Son on a visit from Florida. I booked the round via Golf Now based on previous reviews and proximity to where my Son lives (Fishers).
Because I was traveling and really dislike traveling with clubs, I rented a set. I have been golfing and renting equipment for over 50 years and, by far, the clubs I was given were the worst I have ever seen. The set was not matched, clubs were also in poor condition. The set I was given was missing a putter which, unfortunately, I didn't notice until putting the first hole.
The conditions of the Greens on the course was nothing less than "atrocious".
I had paid for two people, 18 holes but, gave up after playing only 9.
I would NOT recommend this course to anyone!
First time I've played here and wont be the last. Challenging holes and mature trees everywhere. Really enjoyed the round today.
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.
Beautiful day and great course
First time playing the course.
Was in great shape and just a beautiful day. Go play it for sure and I’m looking forward to many more rounds here.
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.
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.
Course in best condition I’ve ever seen. Fairnwairs, greens no matter. Only one funky hole all rest honest and rebasonable,
Bgreat condition. Greens accessible and not too fast. Fun course.
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.
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.
Rates are high!
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!!!
