Great condition and great value

Course is awesome, it's in great shape. Great price for 18 holes of golf. New carts!! Staff is very friendly and are glad you're there. The course is challenging but lots of fun. I play there often with my bff's.

Will not visit again

The staff is very unfriendly. We went to check in and didn't even get greeted. Our foursome played in 5 1/2 hours. If you weren't in the fairway, the course is like a goat ranch. When returning the carts at the end of our round, the staff were rude and pushy. You could tell they wanted to go home and we were holding them up. I've played many different golf courses in Indianapolis and other cities across the country and this was by far the worst customer experience ever.

Wonderful experience.

I don't know why guy gave bad review, wonderful course, well managed. Staff very friendly. New carts, course in great condition. Somebody must not have played well and it is not the course's fault or staff. I will play there again!!! You should play golf there too! See you on the links.

Greens need work

In the past, I’ve played this course around 10-15 times a year. This year, I won’t. The greens need a lot of work. I’ve bought the pass for the year, but I’ll just have to play the other courses until Winding Ridge gets ahold of their greens. There are several greens that are splotchy with dead grass. To me, the greens are what helps you score.. you can drive the ball great, and chip wonderful, but if don’t have a smooth green to putt on, it’s a ruined game.

Good overall with some nuances

My overall rating of this course if positive with some nuances.

Pros: good layout, diverse holes, plenty of “decision shots” of playing aggressive or laying up, challenging, very friendly staff, pace of play (minus the miserably slow two some in front of us but that’s not the courses fault).

Cons: bunkers were not great (not that any of us hit it there right?), crab grass and sod on a few greens, several tee boxes needed some work, maybe too challenging? (for the mid 90s golfers out there), and the DREADED “deep rough”.

A lot of holes and between fairway areas had a “deep rough” that was thick, unmowed grass. Even if your shot wasn’t terribly off the fairway line, it is likely to be lost or a 10 minute search if/when it lands there. This led to many lost balls that should have 100% been in play and understandably, more strokes for penalties.

Overall, it was a very visually appealing, diverse, and challenging course. Prepare to lose a few more balls than you’re accustomed to due to lots of water and the deep rough. Had to move a few putts to avoid dirt/ crab grass while kn greens. Staff couldn’t have been nicer though.

Mounds abound

Really interesting layout. Tons of water, some really tough, long holes. Few trees in play, but those that are make straight shots a premium. Played in mid-Dec., so not expecting pristine greens, but overall course was in good shape. Really fiun terrain, with huge distances in between holes.

Rude staff, terrible condition

Showed up for our tee time and the man at the counter was on the phone. Kept talking while we stood to check-in and wasn’t even talking to a customer by what I heard of the conversation. When he finally got off the phone, he offered no apology. It was amazing how rude he was.

We finally get on the course and it is in appalling condition. Greens that are torn up, fairways that would be rough anywhere else. Tee boxes that are torn to shreds and not even level. All in all it was abysmal.

The only nice thing are the carts, they offered a comfortable tour of this atrocity.

Fun course

Interesting layout, has some challenges but also rather forgiving if you make a bad shot, greens were soft and fairways were in Very good condition. The majority of the homes had a pretty good distance from greens to the next tee box so walking would take a bit longer, recommend a cart. Would play again!
