Great course for the money
First time playing here and it is a fun well laid out course for us newbies. Greens felt slow and some tee boxes could use some love but overall well kept. Pace of play was great and we never felt rushed by anyone behind us nor were we held up by those in front of us. Wasn’t busy at all for a Saturday morning. We will definitely play here again
Coffin is really a golfing gem for us not-ready-for-primetime golfers
Not a regular, but more of an occasional long time Coffin golfer. While many of the tee boxes are atrocious, the bunkers are less-than acceptable, the 2 former bunkers on 12 which are now treated as 'ponds' are plain stupid and the cart path is reminiscent of the pot-hole infested streets of Marion County, the rest of the course (the fairways, the roughs, the slow greens) is surprisingly in good shape. If you hit from the yellow-stripe tees its a challenging course (and that is why I hit from the old-guy tee where I might be able to crack 80). But what a wonderful track. Is there a more spectacular spot to launch a drive than the 5th tee (do not hit right or near right anywhere on this hole)? And don't forget the very, very reasonable rate (for seniors) of only $25, 18 hole, riding. Woof!
Nice public course
Great inexpensive place to play 18 holes of golf and a course that is a bit challenging for a public course. Was in better shape this spring, but the overall conditions have been improving in the recent years.
First time playing Coffin. I first noticed how easy it was to lose my golf balls (I'm a new golfer) with the tight trees and fairways. It opens up as you progress through the course, however.
$44 to play with a cart, personally, seems too high of an ask. Fairways and greens had a surprising amount of leaves on them that made locating your shot a bit more time consuming. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't tell anyone to not play here - at least once, sure. But why wouldn't you play Eagle Creek for this kind of a$king price?
I read a lot of the older reviews and they almost had me not take a chance on this round, but I booked a Hot Deal and gave it a whirl. I'm glad I did, because it was actually in pretty good shape. Cashier in the pro shop sent me off as soon as I arrived (45 minutes early) to join a two-some, and it turned out that we were pretty similar playing abilities and age. Had a nice round (82 from the whites) for a course I'd never even heard of until the night before.
Horrible Value, poor conditions
We played coffin on a weekend in July. I think we paid $42 with a cart. We overpaid by $42. I liked the layout, but it was in horrible shape. Standing water everywhere, crab grass, poor greens. Overpriced and underworked. Exactly what I'd expect from government run course.
Great Liddy course
On my late season round course conditions were fine for a muni. I enjoyed the terrific layout, wild greens and bunkering that remain. The use of the hilly portions of the property well.
As with all of the previous Tim Liddy courses, I thoroughly enjoyed this one too!
Coffin belongs in a coffin. This course is a dump from start to finish. If you like crab grass, this is your kind of place as it's everywhere, including all tee boxes, "fairways" and rough - of which it was almost impossible to tell between the fairway/rough since neither were mowed and it was all crab grass. If there wasn't crab grass, it was because there was no grass from extensive water damage. The greens are beat to heck too.with almost all of them having large bare patches that were impossible to putt through.
The layout has potential if they took care of it, such as the holes along the river (5-7), and 13-15 which were nice with elevation change. But the course is in such awful shape that I would not recommend getting close to it, let alone playing it if you value your time and money. I paid $35 to ride 18, and it was $34,99 too much for this place. I can't even recommend it to learn upon for beginners in this shape. Run far away from this place.
Coffin, a challenge but fun for all
I grew up close to this course and became familiar with it's rolling terrain and majestic trees at an early age and with it's overall beauty rarely found in a city course. In the 90'a the course took on some major changes,but the beauty remained and the challenges of the course were increased making one of my favorite places play and to bring friends.
Being a municipal course unfortunately it does not get all of the attention it truly deserves,but it is still worth taking the time to enjoy this age old beauty not more than 2 to 3 miles from downtown Indy.
Disappointing - don’t waste your money
Used to be an enjoyable layout. Have let course deteriorate to crabgrass all over fairways and tees. Why does Indy Parks department allow the lessor of course have such deplorable conditions.
This is a tough time of year to provide a review - October - as it was a little windy and there were leaves all over the place making it hard to find the ball and putt. I expected the course to be in better shape, but there were many bare spots and the tee boxes were quite rough. Greens were generally good, although they were recently cut. I got a deal on GolfNow, that is what drew me there, but I would want to see improvements in the course to be drawn back.
Not good value
I was looking forward to playing Coffin as I had already played Riverside and South Grove. Like the layout, greens were great as was staff. The fairways, well there were none. Had to search for a patch of grass to hit from in the middle of every fairway bar number one. Way over priced for the conditions
