Fun, challenging, and set in the middle of a state park.

Tremendous layout. Challenging but score able.
Anomalous hilly terrain. Deceptively challenging short holes.
Sometimes a bit of a long slog.
Great exercise for walkers.
Historical layout by the army, last modified by pete Dye in 1995.

Unprofessional staff

Made the reservation online. Manager was very rude when asking for my I.D. when I showed up. Since there was 3 in our group and a 4th joined, we asked for another cart. They charged us another $10. We got to the tee box and our 4th was a walker. When we asked for a refund, we were told only the manager could do it and he just left. We could return 3 days later and get it but this employee was very full of himself. Even though it’s my favorite course in Indy, it will be a long time before I return.

Again, bad experience for the cost

For as much as you pay to play this course they should have a snack bar open and a ranger or at least let you finish your round. They are always rude here. I've been playing for over 40 years and this place never gets any
better with their service. Employees are so entitled. I love to play the course but I cringe from the time I get there to the time I get tee'd off on number one. Everything is always closed, snack bar, range...carts need to be an hour before sun down.... Whoever runs this takes a great golf course and ruins the experience.

I've probably played this course 75-100 times over the years and it is the true challenge of course management. With the exception of Mother Nature's whims it is always in good shape. Back in the pre-Dye days it was a ball eating monster.
Play it because it's worth every penny.

Called off course early

Love playing this course, but have never been told by staff that we couldn't finish the round. We were on 16 when some guy drives up on a cart and tells us that 17 is our last hole for the day. Mind you we teed off at 3:20 pm and there was plenty of light left to complete the round. I would think that staff would've said something to us at check-in, but nope. I had brought a guest and it was his first experience playing the course. Needless to say, it left a bad impression on him. I'm not happy with not being able to finish up with only two holes left and plenty of daylight available. Will think twice before booking tee time here again.

5 Star course, 3 Star experience

The course is awesome and maintained in really great shape. A lot of terrain changes and shot shaping opportunities on this non-typical Indianapolis course. Their layout creates a lot of walking/backtracking from parking to clubhouse to cart drop off. Seems poorly thought out. And if you play afternoon/evening, don't plan on getting in 18. We played 13 holes in two hours, then ran into a logjam of 2-some after 2-some that forced us to quit. No ranger enforcing pace of play. And the snack stand closed before 6:pm with the attendant and starter still there, but the wouldn't sell us anything to drink or eat at the turn, citing they were closed. Offered us the water fountain inside by the bathroom. For the price you pay, they lack in customer experience.
