Closed for winter

The course is pretty fun for the price but it's closed for the winter. You can still book on Golfnow but then you will have to figure out how to get your money back.

no flag

There was no flag on the green and no cards were provided. If you want to make a reservation, please do something about it. I was disappointed

Decent conditions

Greens in decent shape. Fairways & tee boxes weren’t mowed. Kinda unfortunate for a holiday weekend. Still enjoyed my round.

Gem of a course

This is a great course, most friendly staff and layout is fantastic.
I finished 18 holes in under 3 hours on a Wednesday morning.

Good experience

Greens rolled true except #13. Hot spots all over that green. Fairways were not dense enough to play the course without rolling the ball. If you play the the ball down you will not be satisfied with this place. But if you roll the ball, this course would be a fun time for your crew.
Some weed growth around and poor bunkers but greens are still good enough to make up for it.
Would recommend it for <$40 to ride.

Worth the drive

Wanted to play someplace new and found a really good deal for this course. Not overly difficult, though some accuracy is required off a few tees. Course was in good shape and the staff very friendly. Pace of play was great. Glad I made the drive.

Worth the price

The course is in great shape. The only down side would be that the greens were a little slow. In the past, the greens were slick. It may be due to the amount of rain.

We Quit...

In all my years of playing golf (35+ yrs) I have never left in the middle of round... well we did at Hawks Tail.
As we sat on #15 tee box we were already 5 hours in, so it was going to be a 6+hr round plus the fact there was no water coolers avail on the entire course (90* & humid)-- we packed up and left.
The courses grass is awesome if you want a nice bluegrass lawn for a house, just not what you want for fairways-- way too high, too thick.
The back 9 is exceptionally long & not player friendly- they could shorten numerous back 9 holes 30-40yds and they would still be long holes.
We followed a two-some the entire front 9 that was getting golf instruction on the course as they "played" & never offered for us to go around (we were a two-some also).
I would not recommend nor play again, way too many better options in the Indy area market.
Some positives-- the greens were in very good shape & rolled well, yet kind of slow. We also liked the clearly marked yardages on the cart paths.
