Pace of Play

You really need to invest in starters/rangers. This is the absolute worst course in the area for pace of play. I haven’t finished my round here on a couple occasions. Excellent layout, excellent conditions, nice people, but rarely an enjoyable round due to the waiting. Work on that and people would be willing to make the long drive more often.

Great course, slow play

This is a great course and gem of the area. Many local business people play here during the week. We played for a friend's bday and had a great time. Our only issue was pace of play. We play quick and when the shots go well we play a round in about 3 hours or less. We were able to tee off ahead of a foursome. We had no one within eye sight the first 6 holes. By 8 we had a lone golfer a hole behind. By 10 we let him play through. By 12 we had another that we let play through and we were caught up to a threesome ahead of us. At 12 there is a "half way shack" that is stocked with anything you need. That threesome included the lone golfer by hole 13 and then they never made progress or kept pace quick. They did apologize at 18th tee for the group ahead of them playing slow. I believe there was a group on the green, another in the fairway, and us on the tee. I love golf and happy to see people playing but 9 minute gaps may be too tight. Picture is from 12th green. Friend and I about 75 yds out.

This course never disappoints; there are 24 courses in a closer proximity to my home and I drive by every one to go to Lebanon and play The Trophy Club. Weather was crap but I never enjoyed golfing in the rain more. Awesome experience; never disappoints!

Solid Shape

Trophy Club always leaves you wanting more. It's in solid shape tee to green already this year, and well worth a trip or stop if you're traveling on 65 between Lafayette and Indianapolis.

Trophy Club is P-Yure

Love playing this track! Course is challenging and conditions are always mint. For late April the course is in beautiful shape. My group and I always have a great time out there. It’s kind of a drive from Indy but well worth it. PLAY TROPHY CLUB!!!

Very Nice

Course was in great shape especially for how early in the year it is. Fairways had been mowed and rolled which was very nice. Def like the variety of holes and the overall layout of the course.
Will def be back soon.

Always a treat!

Trophy Club is always a treat. I've played it many times and in every season. The course is always is excellent condition. The time I am writing about was in early April. The greens were surprisingly fast for this early in the season. Temperature was about 50 and the wind was blowing 12-15 MPH so it was a bit nippy. But, it was sunny and I was not in the office. Every hole seemed to play directly into the wind but somehow still managed to pull out an 84 so I walked away looking forward to the next time.

it has been raining a lot the last few days and the course has handled it well. Some standing water on tee boxes but it did not cause any problems. The course looked great. Greens were rolling well. Great place to play. Pace of play was good

Top notch course

3rd time i’ve played this course and it’s always in perfect condition.
Fairways are the some the nicest i’ve ever played.
The greens are a challenge. Not a flat spot anywhere and slick as glass. A very enjoyable combination.
Only complaint is that the “halfway house” in (middle of holes 4 and 10?), is never open. Restroom break and drink would be nice after 9 holes.
I would recommend this course to anyone that appreciates a golf course that is well taken care of.

A Fun and Challending Course

My golf partner and I jumped at Hot Deal on this premier course. I had wanted to play here for years and this course sure did not disappoint. It may have been the last nice day of the season so it was a bit stacked up but the pace still moved along steadily. The course was in fantastic condition considering it is season end. The fairways and rough were will groomed and even the heather areas were neatly outlined. The traps, and I found most of them, were soft and very playable. The greens are diabolical but smooth and fast. Love the course and can't wait til next season.

Off the beaten path...BUT a path well worth finding!

For full disclosure I came to the course from Illinois so your trek may not be as 'off the beaten path' as mine.

First off, I prefer wide open courses like this one. For the most part the fairways were wide and forgiving...however, IF you miss the fairway you are looking at a possible big number! Additionally, I'd bet a fair amount that the course designer studied, and took many design queues, from Pete Dye. The carts have the hole layouts and descriptions, plus I had my (Excellent!) Arccos app but I am here to tell you that on many of the holes there were layouts with visual aspects that left you scratching your head about where and how far was best how to approach the hole. The course makes you use every club in your bag...that I believe is one of the key signs of a great design and layout.

Sooooo once you determine how you are gong to get to the green NOW you are in for a real adventure! The greens ranged quite a bit in size, shape and orientation but what was common to all of them was multiple levels and many serious undulations that you had to pay attention to and without a 'pro yardage book' you are literally shooting blind even if you can 'see' the green. If you are close to the green (50 yards in) it is best to walk up and check out the pin placement (apologies to pace of play!) and especially to see if there are any nearby swales that will take even a slightly errant shot down into a drainage area or a bunker. I hit what I thought was a beauty right at the flag only to see it spin right back down and off the green into trouble...I did not get up and down and went from Birdie attempt to a double bogey ;-(.

This is definitely a course that you need to play more than once to get a feel for it, and once you play it for the first time I think you will, like me, want to get back and play it again soon!

Lastly, I want to thank The Trophy Club for hosting our Golf Channel Amateur Tour tournament, the course was in great condition for us. For those of you out there who have even a remote interest in playing new courses (including private ones), meeting lots of new friends, and playing competitive (flighted!!) golf please go check out the Golf Channel Amateur Tour http://gcamtour.com and join your local tour...you will not regret it!!

Great layout/Pro wasn’t friendly at all

It was a crisp and cool Saturday, and you would think G.B. would be glad to have us there. Obviously not. He wasn’t friendly at check-in, and not when we were looking to buy some beverages for the round. Too bad. This is one of my favorite courses in the area.
