Great course

Tees, fairways and greens were in great shape. I found the layout to be one of the best public courses in Indiana due to the great character. Only issue is cart-path only and some were in bad condition. I'll be back.

Cart paths = $$$$$ For a little more than half of what Golf Now charges every year for their service they could have new cart paths. They get 100% of the HOT Deal $.

e.coli

It would have been nice when we checked in if they would have told us their water supply was contaminated with E.coli or even had a couple signs up other then just one on the men's bathroom mirror above one sink. I'm 5,11 not tall but the sign was above my eye line.

Always A Pleasure To Play Here

Fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. Greens were slow because they had recently been aerated. I'd expect the greens to be rolling great again by mid-April. The layout is one of the best public courses in Indiana easily. So much character. I'll be back again soon.

Course is open, call 317-984-3837 for tee times. Golf Now is intentionally misleading as they are not getting their cut of the tee times to sell as Hot Deals.
