You’d think with a month off the course would be in perfect condition. It wasn’t too wet but cart path only which I understand is why the pace was so slow. Thing that made me upset was how bad the grass was. I get it, it was raining the day before but the grass was too long and thick couldn’t even hit it out of the rough let alone even find it.
Hi, u037603908! Thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback. We value our customer experience, so your review is important to us. Please know the current conditions are by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We will continue to work towards a 5-star experience and we hope to see you back!
Cold and very windy
Greens consist speed and smooth
Tees and fairways good shape
Staff very friendly
Carts on cart path only
Course lot of standing water in fairways
Bunkers need work
Bang for the buck
Depending on the tee selection you chose to play , this course can be very long or short ! Some tricky par 5’s ! The wind always plays with your ball on the par 3’s . The par 4’s are about average for a city course ! A good place to practice and the driving in back is a great place to tune up your game !
Better than I remembered
I bought a voucher off facebook that allowed us to play the course for $18 with a cart. For Indianapolis and busy Greenwood this is outstanding value. The layout is standard city parkland style: pretty flat, lots of down and back holes, a variety of par 3 length holes. The greens were in decent shape, but the bunkers were washed out. There staff was friendly, and we got around quick!
Check out Smock if you are in the Indy area. She is a solid muni!
Great Course, Good Condition
Grew up playing this course, and glad to see it is still in solid shape all around. Course plays long, so intend on hitting some long irons into the green. Indy has received a lot of rain over the last month, so fairways were off limits on Par-5s when I played, and some sections of fairway were roped off for repair. They've really narrowed fairways, for some odd reason, and have removed some bunkers around the course over the years. Also, they've allowed grass to grow high around the creeks. Fairways, rough and greens were all in great shape and really enjoyed playing the course. Bunkers all around have just been let go and it seems to be a theme with public courses in Central Indiana. Definitely worth the $29 to play twilight on a Saturday. Shot a 43-40 for an 83 from the white tees.
Harder than it looks
From afar this course looks like a simple easy course. On the course it is challenging with water and small creek meandering through holes. If you miss the fairways the challenge is the rough which was nicely kept and could have been even more challenging if a bit longer. The greens were very nice and we'll kept with no disease this late into the summer. Nice course for our junior players. Staff was friendly and pro shop and clubhouse were nice.
Rock Hard Greens
The course is nothing special. Not bad, not good. Watch out for blind lakes and streams on some holes, which mostly go back and forth.
Two major complaints: 1) the pace of play sucked - just under 5 hours on a Friday late morning/early afternoon. 2) the greens were hard as a rock. If you flew it on the green, it took a huge bounce. If you landed short on most holes, since the greens were slightly elevated, it wouldn't bounce on. Also , the fringe isn't really fringe. So if your ball nestled against it, you needed to blade a wedge to putt, even though you're on the green because the grass/rough was high and patchy behind it.
Don't get me wrong, it was in decent shape for this level of course, and you can do a lot worse around here. But be prepared for a long kinda boring round.
Going Back For Sure!!
I really enjoy this golf course. It is one of the lengthiest golf courses in central Indiana and has parts that have a lot of hills. The course definitely rewards you for hitting the fairway. The only down side when I played was that there were some areas that didn't drain water very well, but most of the course was dry. Definitely an enjoyable and challenging golf course.
Nice facilities. I look forward to going back later in the season once the grass has bounced back and can be cut.
Excellent Course in Beautiful Condition
I have only played Smock one other time and couldn't remember how interesting the course is. The fairway grass is in great shape and we had the entire place to ourselves due to a threat of rain, which never did materialized. The fall colors were beautiful and it was a super, fun afternoon. Friendly staff with free refills on soda....who can beat that? We will be back for sure.
Great golf course!
This place exceeded my expectations in every possible way. I will definitely play there again.
Smock Golf Course
The course is in fantastic condition. The greens roll very fast and true. We are never disappointed after playing at Smock!
PAINFULLY SLOW PLAY!
The play at Smock is PAINFULLY SLOW!! NO ONE will let you play through and no one seems to play fast. I came up behind a walking 2-some on the 5th hole and they refused to let me...a single in a cart...play through. I had to play behind them...watching every shot they took... virtually the whole round. Ended up getting pinned behind a 4-some that seemed to have decided 6hrs was a good pace for 18 holes. My complaint...really...is that there are NO RANGERS anywhere to make slow players setp aside for faster players...or a SINGLE! The end expereince was a miserable round of golf. 80 degrees...sunny...no wind and the round was miserable. I will not be back to Smock due to the pace of play.
Not a fast playimg course
Very busy for a Thursday afternoon. Aways seems to be backed up. Purchased as 2 players and were paired up. But noticed behind us there were a few twosomes. If you are looking to play quick and only with a buddy, I would not recommend this course. Its very long and it took 5 hours to play as a foursome, which we originally wanted to play as a twosome so we could get done in a reasonable time.
Course has character
Long and challenging par 3s. Par 4s are mostly forgiving and not too long. Greens are in good shape and the pin placements were a good test - I didn't quite pass the test but had fun.
Excellent course with a fair but challenging layout
challenging, but yet fun to play.
this course is somewhat challenging...but if you do like the old saying goes----> Play the course & don't let it play you.... you will do fine.
Course Was Above Par
The fairways, greens and rough were all in the best condition I've ever seen. The bunkers had lots of sand for the first time I could remember. It only took my threesome 3 hours and 30 minutes to play 18. That is a first on this course!!!
Course is in excellent condition with the amount of rain this year. Staff were very Professional. Will play again soon. Thank you
