First time playing Used cart Perfect weather

Attempted to play this Course 8-15-17. Checked in pro shop. Was assigned ancient golf cart that sputter like old Model T. Was told we could not drive the cart in the rough area.?? Purchased a bucket of balls for the driving range. Tee area was a horizontal piece of carpet that covered the practice tee box area. The first 3 holes: par 4,5,3. On all three holes I could not find any yardage markers in the fairways. Fairways were burnt out in spot areas. No markers on the cart paths (blue,white, red) none to be found. The sand traps were hard pan and edges had not been trimmed in quite awhile. Call me old school. Didn't have a view finder. However, I did find a yardage plate on the Par 3 tee box. I have no idea how this course could ever receive any rating above 3 stars. We left after the par 3. I was a guest of a fellow golfer. He was given rain checks for future play. Good Luck!

Played here for the first time today......great layout and will be back! Almost every hole is unique and layout gives a wide variety of hole types and lengths. There are multiple tees so you can pick the best for your skill set. You can make it challenging or somewhat challenging based on which tees you tee it up from. Fairways had some brown spots due to recent weather, but otherwise course was in really good condition.

Slightly tricky to find.......as you come north on US 31, proper exit is before you get to US 24....actually is off of BUS 24......east on BUS 24 after you exit off 31, then north on S 250 W...worth the drive!!!!

Can't think of a bad part of our 4 hour round at Rock Hollow. We arrived on a Saturday morning after receiving 6+ inches of rain over the last 7 days. Greeted by very friendly staff and told to our surprise that carts were being let off path. Course was in insanely good shape after the amount of rain we've had and greens were rolling true. First time playing and have memory of every hole due to something interesting / unique about each one. One of the best golf experiences I've had in central Indiana. Would rank this right along with The Fort, Prairie View, and Purgatory if located in Indy. Worth every bit of the 90 minute drive and hard to beat the price!

I try to play this course every year at least twice.... Great layout.... Dye and Liddy did a great job on the greens. . . There's really not a straight Putt anywhere ?. . . From tee to green you will use almost every Club in your bag and I really like that...Off the Tee Box you have to be precise on your drives..... On some holes you do not want to fire at the pen.... Make sure you have a yardage book from the clubhouse because some greens you want to be in the middle or below the hole..... Around the greens make sure you have your Cleveland wedges with you because you will need them when you come up short or spray it to the right or spray it to the left ?. . . On the greens their typical Pete Dye greens ?. . Small hidden humps and swells but fast and true . . . What you see usually is what it does ?. . . (look for small humps and swells). . . As for the facility it is very nice and and has all the amenities you need.... So for a upgraded course bring your A game if you want to go low and make sure you Pipe them straight

What a jewel to have in the middle of Indiana. The course layout is very nice with a variety of holes that all skill levels can play. There are some short holes and some long par fives and fours for the long hitters. Course conditions were the best we had all weekend and that included playing Bear Slide. The value is outstanding for a course of this caliber too. Very scenic course for this area.

Putts rolled true and stayed on line on every green. On a Sunday, we saw maintenance workers smoothing out the bunkers. The staff is very helpful .

I would recommend this to anyone on the way to Indy or coming home.

We were due to play the Purdue Kampen Course and the course was closed due to excessive rain so we went north where the rain wasn't as severe and I'm glad we did. We were able to get right on after a slight delay and it is a beautiful course with a great layout. Hard to believe it was a rock quarry. There are a few challenging holes if you decide to be aggressive, but overall the views are great and I will definitely play this course again.

If they didn’t tell you, you wouldn’t guess that this tree-lined championship level golf course was once a quarry. Opened some 30 years ago, the mature hardwoods, lakes, bunkering and mature greens look like they’ve been here forever. This fifth-generation family-run operation is also as welcoming as it gets. Overseen by patriarch Terry Smith, the family has a passion for the game. As for the course, it was designed by Pete Dye protégé Tim Liddy, so it’s solid throughout and from the more rearward tees, a tough test.

Had not played the course for quite a few years but our group of golfers decided to play the course on our way to Indy for a weekend golf trip. We played on a Friday afternoon and paid the twilight rate which was an unbelievable value. The course was in great condition and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. It is a definite stop again on our agenda next year. Great time...really a hidden gem.

The course is difficult for high handicappers like myself but it keeps me involved in my game because if its condition and beauty!!! Even nicknamed an island on the back nine "Ball Island" and trust me you'll know it when you see it!! Highly recommend traveling to Peru, IN for this hidden gem, you will not regret it!!<br/> Adam
