What happened to this place?

When I first played West Chase some 25 years ago or so, it was a beautifully maintained course with a terrific set of interesting and unique holes. I've probably played it 8 or 9 times since in those 25 years. Well, the unique layout is still there, but it is not in very good shape. Many fairways were stressed out with either some type of disease or lack of water. A number of the greens were in sketchy shape too, not to mention SLOW. Bunkers were filled with rocks of all types of sizes - one of which certainly left its mark on my sand wedge. Many tee boxes were chewed up. On the positive side, the course staff was friendly and attentive and the greens' fees were at an acceptable rate (but just barely because the course was so rough).
I'll probably give West Chase another chance in the future and hope that what I played on the other day was an aberration but right now, I can't recommend it.

Hidden Indiana Gem

This course does. It make any of the best public courses list for Indiana, but it should. The course has a terrific layout, limited housing on the perimeter of some holes, modern undulating greens and a great hilly back 9.

Had a blast

We played west chase a while back, and I am just now getting to a review. The course offers a fun layout with a wide variety of holes. The 9th hole is a challenging par 5 with lots of visual appeal. The greens were fast and rolled true. The sand was actually in pretty decent shape. Some dead patches and tall grass in places.

Course is well worth a go, and I would gladly make the trip out there again.

Great Layout, Well Manicured

First time playing this course and thoroughly enjoyed it. I walked with a push cart and the back nine is a real challenge physically; that is also what makes it so much fun. Lots of elevation change, some trees on certain holes, water, and postage stamp greens.

A fun challenge.

Always a fun test

West Chase never disappoints. Excluding a few bunkers and water damage (which they appear to be working on or filling in), it was in good shape. The layout is cool with links style on the front and tighter wooded holes on the back. There are some beautiful and memorable holes such as 9 and 16. It’s just challenging enough to make it fun but you can definitely score there. Highy recommended for the price. If you live on the west side of town, no brainer.

Fun Course

West Chase is a sneaky, but fun course. The front is fairly open while the back is a little tighter with more elevation change. Greens are smaller than a lot of places around town, though not the smallest. All of them though have some slope but do not break as much as they appear, and roll true. Fairways were pretty narrow but the rough wasn't overly thick. There was some spots where water damage would've caused issues in some fairways, and the tee boxes were a little chewed and shaggy. Sand throughout the course was packed down mud and needs updating or removed (as they appear to have begun to do around the course). Even with these detractions it was a visually appealing course.

They have a good internet deal that includes a 6-pack with the round which is a nice touch if you can find it. Its a little out of the way but definitely worth a play.

Beautiful course

This is one of my favorite courses I have played since moving to Indy. I played about a month ago and the fairways and greens were perfect. Front 9 is wide open while the back 9 has more trees in play. My only complaint is that the last time I played I was the first out on the course, but when I got to the back 9 I was backed up due to lessons being taught to kids. Just would have been nice to know before I paid to play that day.

Good layout, bad maintainance.

I played the first time here and will be the last time. Greens were soooo slow, grass wasn't cut, bunker is just a dirt, no sand whatsoever. Hirroable experiance.

I'll be back

Course was in really good shape, and I enjoy the layout at West Chase, even after I've played probably 50 times. New management is re-doing all the traps so some are still under construction, but the new ones were in phenomenal shape. Can't wait to see what the course looks like once they are finished!

Challenging course in very good condition

The West Chase fairways and greens were in really good shape. Had it not been for the water in the sand traps I would have rated this course excellent this season. This is a challenging course and if you take advantage of the "hot deal" you will enjoy your round even more!

Beautiful course

West Chase is a beautiful course that has plenty to offer as far as challenges on the course. There is plenty of sand and a little bit of water to contend with. The two things I would love to see improved is the height of the rough and the signage on the course. When heading to 10 and 14 both it was a bit confusing. There were other times a well placed sign would have been great since the course isn't laid out in a straight forward manner. The rough was also a problem. It was so tall that we lost more than one ball just 6-12" off of the fairway. If you weren't right on top of it, it was invisible. It may be the intention of the course design but it makes for a very frustrating round if you aren't consistently in the fairway.

The course layout with narrow fairways and well placed bunkers also punished Mis-hits severely.

In my opinion, this is a must play course.

Great layout, close to Indy!

Always enjoy playing at West Chase ... a fun layout that offers challenges and rewards good shots. Cool thing about this course is the difference between the 9's ... mostly links style on the front, more challenging on the back with more trees. Will definitely return!
