Windy round

Course was in shape. Bunkers are not good when it rains a bit and is cooler temps. No draining for them. Full of water. But it’s a links course. So plenty of places to miss bunkers. Rough was recently cut. Good and bad. You can see where your ball finishes. But with cut dry grass everywhere, it is still 50/50 if you find it. Fairways were right. Greens recently aeration job and sand topping. It’s a golf course and if you play well or not, the course is not the factor as always

What a great design of a course. Challenging greens every hole. Not a vanilla course. Great fall views. Nice fairways and tee boxes. Highly recommend.

Always a challenge!

Great day at the course and was in pretty good shape for this late in the fall. Greens have been aerated but still rolled ok. Partnered with my brother in law and it was his first time playing and loved the course. We will both be back in the spring. Best course for the money in Indianapolis!

Everything about this course was terrific except the wind. Holy cow. Not windy in Indianapolis, but 30mins away... Made for a not-so-enjoyable afternoon. I think the wind situation is probably a common problem because it is out in the open. I wouldnt return or recommend to a friend simply due to the wind. My rating of "poor" for course conditions, and "average" for overall rating, was based solely on the wind - because everything else was outstanding. Absent wind, this would be an unbelievable value. $32 for 18 with a cart, on a course this nice - are you kidding me?!

Nice Course with a lot of character

The course was in great shape. A lot of turns and lot of rolling hills. The rough is thick so if you get too far off you won't find it. Fun course.

Hidden Gem

A hidden gem in the northern suburbs of Indianapolis! Awesome course. Friendly staff and extremely well maintained.

The course in itself, very challenging. There are at least three holes with sharp doglegs to the left. This course is not about a powerful tees, it is about strategic placement of your tee shot for most holes.

Several of the greens are tricky... If you overshoot some of the greens, you can consider your ball lost, since the re is either water or a sharp drop to thick grass or bushes.

Reasonably priced for the quality of play, regardless of you skill level.

Another great day at Trophy Club

A picture perfect fall day: sunny, 75-80 degrees, light wind. The greens had just been aerated, but they were still in great shape. Unlike many courses, Trophy Club did not spread too much sand, so the greens were very puttable, just maybe not quite as lightning fast as they usually are. Things got a little backed up on the back 9, but I still finished in just under 4 hours. I like the variety of holes. This is definitely a thinking man’s course, as there are some hazards that aren’t always obvious from the tee and there are definitely right place to miss the greens and places you don’t want to go at all costs. So I am learning how to play it and enjoying it more each time by learning from my past mistakes!

Slowest round of golf of all time!!!!

The course was really nice, but it was so windy that it made it very challenging and almost no fun at times. In addition, the round took 5 hours and 40 minutes, which is by far the longest round of golf I have ever played! Liked the course, but could not do that again! Maybe return if the course was nearly empty.

Good Challenge

Always enjoy playing this course. Need good shot placement. and you get rewarded for those good shots. Just wish I had more in the bag. Holes look longer from the tee box. Not much reward for the risk as the risk will bite you. Fun day.

One of the best in the area

The course is a direct competitor with Bear Slide in Cicero, The Fort, Purgatory in Noblesville, and Prairie View in Carmel. And a few more. It is my favorite of that group. Greens are quick but soft and can sometimes show some wear and tear. Fairways are excellent. They have some long rough but it doesn't jump out at you. The layout is great. The short holes are a challenge because the greens are narrow and undulating- so a little offline and you can get into trouble. Five of the first six holes are into the morning sun- so dew sweepers are hitting blind teeshots early in the round. Traps are mostly good with some muddy exceptions here and there- but they are maintained. There is a halfway house but it isnt always open- so get supplied before you start.

Course in good shape

Greens and fairways were plush. Sand traps need a lot of attention...poor drainage. Cart paths are rough but for a public course, it offers a manageable challenge to low handicappers.

Lot of potential, but issues as well.

Course was in less than ideal shape today, but somewhat expected as there was about an inch of rain last night. The good: greens rolled true but quite slow; tees were in great shape; well marked for first time players. Problem areas were: rough was very patchy; fairways were destroyed by divots (ball stopped in five of them - they were everywhere!); no ranger (group in front of us had 6 holes open in front of them); and the grounds crew were obviously not trained as to not follow a specific group for five holes cutting the fairways while we were on the greens. The REALLY bad: one member of our group asked for his own cart, and they told ALL of us we had to pay an additional $15 per person! They only charged $49 for the entire round! They want an extra green fee PLUS for an additional cart??? No chance here! I paid my green fees and cart rental, I had my receipt, and I wasn’t dropping another dime for one person’s accommodation.
