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 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.

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.

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!!!

Good course for the money

Firm but forgiving greens, tee boxes in good condition, fairways could use more water to soften them. Overall nice experience. Will play again.

Great Municipal Course

First time on this course for my 3 playing partners. They frequently commented during the round what a nice course it was--couldn't believe it was a municipal course. Very well maintained.
