It doesn't help when you don't offer why so that adjustments can be investigated. 5 plus inches of rain in the last 2 weeks, 3+ on Friday and Saturday alone, and rain in the gauge 9 of the last 14 days. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. At least 1 mower stuck in a random soft spot every day lately.

Underwhelming

Group ahead of us was extremely rude. Intentionally drove two balls and slowed down pace of play. No amenities on a “top rated course.” There was no water on the course and no cart girl. For a course that is so highly rated, I feel like it should at least have some amenities. Don’t waste your money here. Go to The Fort.

You sound sexist? Cart "girl"? Unless you have been under a rock for a while, no water coolers due to covid. Sure hope you didn't play on a Golf Now or senior discount. If so you are part of the reason for the reduced staffing and "amenities".

Indy Golf Trip #1

I played the Bear Slide with two other friends on 08/31/21. This course is divided into two completely different style nines. The front nine is a links style course and the back is mostly a parkland course with a touch of links. There are more trees on the back nine, but you will feel the wind more on the front. It was my first time playing this course and looking back I would have played a few holes differently. I would highly suggest getting a yardage book for the first timers. You have blind shots on three different holes. On hole number 10 you will need a long tee shot (depending on how far you can drive the ball) to make the green in two. On hole number 11, your tee shot must be on the left side of the fairway, towards the bunker, or you will be blocked out by trees on the right side of the fairway (Like I was). The greens rolled nice and had a decent pace to them. The whole course is in excellent shape. The staff was very friendly and professional. If you are in the area, I would highly recommend that you play this course. I will definitely be back to play it. Awesome course!
