Never fails to impress

River Glen always provides a good challenge, great course conditions and a fun round of golf. I think it is the best value in the Carmel, Indiana area and love playing here. Do yourself a favor and play this great course.

Beautiful course with good difficulty level for a beginner. Went on a Saturday with perfect weather, so the pace was rushed.

SLOW PLAYERS delight...

This course is very nice. Nothing wrong with the course. Its a nice layout that is well maintained. The staff is nice and helpful as well. I can't give the course a better rating because the pace of play is awful! Its achingly slow. The reason is the old women playing slow and unwilling to let anyone play thru! So...just know...if plan on playing there...the 4hr 15 minute pace of play shown on the card is just a guide that probably won't be met.

Slow play and bad greens.

It took us over 5 hours to play the course and didn’t get to tee off on time tee’d off 20 minutes late for our tee time due to the slow pace golfing. The green had many bump causing the ball not to role well at all.

Another outstanding day!

I just don’t think you can go wrong playing River Glen. It is a great course with plenty of challenge and the course is in really good condition. The only complaint I have is that some of the greens appear to show some wear at this point in the season. Probably due to all of the heat. Otherwise it was a great day!

7/27 after heavy rain

Carts on path
Bunkers full of water unplayable
Greens look to have been vertical-cut
Greens rolled better then they looked
All of course very lush, fairways and tees excellent
Could use better signs getting thru homes to next tee box on front side
Will be back on drier day
