One of the best courses in the Indianapolis area. A very hard course that has a lot of risk reward situations.
Pawleys Island, South Carolina
Throughout the course, you will see colorful trees and landscaping, especially on holes 1,9, 10 & 18. Some of the best ambiance I've ever experienced on a course.
Newport Coast, California
This course never ceases to amaze me. From the time you walk onto the property till the time you leave you feel like a king! Everything is In perfect condition and the course is extremely fun especially in playing on the south side.
Great clubhouse, huge pro shop, nice range, and a heck of a course. They have a lot of very enjoyable holes that are gorgeous to look at, and a real challenge to play.
Lost Pines, Texas
Just a beautiful course and always a pleasure to play. Was in the best shape I have seen it and incredibly lush and pure fairways. Not overly crowded and just a beauty set in the hills.
Be sure and take a moment when you reach the 14th tee and walk all the way to the back of it. From there, take in one of the best view of an inland confluence of holes that I can recall in my travels. You can see the 16th, 12th, 2nd and 7th greens. It is fantastic.
Enjoyed the layout & design of each hole. Well maintained course made for a fun afternoon. We are looking forward to going back to play again soon!
Bay Harbor, Michigan
It doesn't get much better. This is a gorgeous course with an impressive layout. It was in superb condition, and only Arcadia Bluffs can compete with the views.
