Round of my life

Royal hylands is parkland style layout with a beast of a par 5 as an opening hole that plays down a shoot of trees into a tough sloping green. This is the hardest starting hole in the circle city area. It is indicative of the round to come. The course has the friendliest staff and best customer service of any course I have ever experienced which just adds to the over all experience. The course has had some water damage due to all of the rain as of late and it doesn't drain well. They are extending the green on the 10 hole which will make for a nice landing area on the three tier hole. I was able to finally birdie the dreaded 15th hole which as one of the craziest greens I've ever played in the state of Indiana. It is multi tiered and slopes hard front to back. Being above the hole is three putt city generally.

This course is just everything you'd want in a round of golf: Pristine greens that roll true and can be very tricky, lots of elevation changes tee to green, scenic views, and great bunkers. They have the whole package here, and it is the best deal going at under 50 dollars. GET OUT AND PLAY IT!

Best Public Course All Around

I play with a group of retirees, 20 to 40 players weekly where we play different Indiana courses with a shotgun start. Each time we play this course we collectively are amazed at the quality of the condition of the course, the carts and the friendliness of the staff. The bent grass tees and fairways are plush, greens run true and hold shots into them. Sand traps are full and raked. Electric carts with auto brakes are best you can find anywhere. Yesterday we brought 37 golfers and to a man each heaped praise on the quality of this course and we don't say that lightly. We are a very intense group of better than average players who appreciate course management and quality and this course consistently is among the best. Course is also very picturesque and offers a good challenge in the skill of play. Very reasonably priced for overall quality.
