Not in great shape

I haven't played here in the last year or so. However, the course conditions were poor compared to the past. Lots of bare spots in the fairways. Some poor surfaces on some greens. Lots of dandelions in all roughs. Staff was friendly. But I probably won't play there again this year due to the condition of the course.
It was pretty windy this time (obviously not the fault of the course)
The course is longer than average. And there wasn't much advantage for senior tees on most holes. I'm 75 years old and not a long hitter. So that makes a difference to me.

Nice course overall, pretty rough shape in 2021

Hawks tail is a nice little course for the money. I've played here roughly 15 times, and they must be giving a discount this year because of conditions. I know for a fact I paid 35, last year and it was 27 this year and the course is rough. Lots of weeds, lots of dead spots. I'd say I moved my ball at least 10 times because I was in dirt where grass should be. No biggie with the discount, but if you're looking for plush fairways and better conditions, Hawks Tail is going to need some time. The layout is pretty nice and slightly above average. 17 is a nice challenge par 3 over water, 18 is a blind par 4 dogleg left that really makes you want to go over the trees for the miracle. Last but not least, it's Greenfield IN., and just like every other course in rural Indiana, you will deal with the neckbeards. This place is better than most around here, but be prepared for people who don't fill or fix divots, golf in jeans and basketball shorts, play music loudly from their carts, drive into your tee box, and litter the course. Just like most things, the place would be much nicer without the people who inhabit it.

Staff Has Attitude

I booked on Golf Now and met three friends here.. I had already paid and they checked in so I went straight to the first hole. On hole two I was in the fairway taking my second shot when the young guy who worked their came out. My friends yelled that he was telling them it’s cart path only. I honestly did not know and waved an apologetic wave and moved the cart. The guy then proceeded to tell my friends to not let it happen again insinuating he would kick us out. I apologized at the turn and told him I thought his comment was a little much and he proceeded to tell me two more times with smirk on his face and also reminded me he could kick us out. I told him that’s not a way to treat your guests and walked on. I was more than nice and apologetic for an honest mistake. I thought the attitude was unwarranted. Needless to say the young guy in the clear frame glasses seems to be on a power trip. Also none of the ball wash stations had water, divot fill was empty on all carts, and the tee boxes were a mess. I’ll never be back.

This course needs a mow!

Overall nice layout to the course. Pace of play was average at best. Course greens keeping was lacking for this time of year.

Crab grass

Course tee boxes were crab grass. Fairways were crab grass. Made for very difficult play even if in the fairway bc you can’t get a good lie.

Crab Grass Everywhere

So sad to see Crab Grass on Tees, Fairways and Fringes! Disappointing. If this was known would have played elsewhere.
Greens are in good condition no crab grass.

Course Upkeep Poor

Fairways are terrible. Greens are not kept well. No way should you ever spend $40 to play here. Should be a 1-2 star course and 10-15$ at peek times

Typical community course with a GREAT staff!

Typical community course. Conditions of fairways were beat up and the greens had some bare spots in them. The layout isnt bad to get in a little practice. Staff was extremely friendly and the highlight of the course!

Nice greens/great old course

They are doing some makeovers (filling in old bunkers, etc), but this is a nice little course.
