Great Track

Chariot Run continues to be the most consistent well manicure greens in the area The only issue this time was staffing concerns. We made the turn and attempted to get a bite and a beer. There was only 1 person managing the bar area serving as well as cooking. Several people were waiting at the bar and no interaction with the staff We left after waiting over 15 minutes to see anyone.

What a fun course

Played it for the first time today. The wind blew and the greens were fast. The course was excellent and the design was fun. My only complaint would be that it is somewhat difficult to get to. I will definitely be back

Thank for 5 star rating, and for taking time out of your day to tell us how we did. Glad you enjoyed the overall experience at Chariot Run and while we've always believed us to be among the best in Southern Indiana, we'll defer to you as to whether we're THE best. Kidding of course, but we appreciate the high praise just the same. Hope to see you again soon.

Another good experience at Chariot Run

I enjoy the layout here, the holes aren't too bunched up. You need to think your way around here to avoid disaster, even then you can take a big number if you don't execute. The greens were smooth and semi-fast. The fairways rolled out and the ball sat up just enough. I was in a couple of bunkers that were inconsistent but they were working on other bunkers on the course. The pace of play was a bit slow for me but tolerable (4:30).

Ugh, just four stars? Sorry we fell short this time, especially on the pace of play side. Chariot Run is such a popular choice because of the excellent conditions and overall experience, sometimes we struggle to get everyone moving around. Great call on the bunkers too - Brad and the maintenance team have been hard at work repairing them, and we're even eyeing a restoration/renovation of those. We look forward to our next opportunity to deliver what you've come to expect at Chariot Run - one of the best experiences in Southern Indiana.

Just 4 stars? We're sorry to fall short in the area of pace of play: Chariot Run is so popular that on busy days, we sometimes struggle to keep everyone moving around the Bill Bergin design. Sounds like Chariot Run delivered apart from the pace, so does that mean you'll come back and give us another chance? We hope you will.
