Love it

One of the most beautiful courses in Central Indiana. As always, Course was in great condition. Took my golf buddy out for his first time there, and he just absolutely loved it. Can't beat a round here in early November at 70° outside.

1st time in Retirement golfing the Fort on a weekday!

We love the Fort course. It was a beautiful fall day. The falling leaves made it a bit more difficult to find our balls, but still wonderful. We played 18 holes in 4 hours!

Poor service

The course was in good condition. Playing pace was terrible and had to wait almost at every tee. The staff member in the clubhouse was very arrogant.

Relaxing evening of golf

Played with my husband and were paired with 2 other guys that were very nice and we had a great round of 18 holes. No waiting for people in front of us and no one pushing us from behind. The sand traps were wet and not raked was our only complaint.

Possibly overrated

Overall good course but in my opinion its overrated. Pace was great on a friday morning. The plethora of bunkers were in absolutely terrible shape. At some point everyone ends up in one and it really ruins your game to hit off concrete.
This course has a great deal of restrictions on cart and feels like very few areas you can drive your cart and the cart signs are very far back from the green leading to slower play. No GPS on carts but they are fast carts.

Great course to come back home to!

I have not been home in 10 years, but this course mad me glad I came home! I live in florida with flat level courses for the most part. this course was full of hills ravines and fun and challenging to play. Next time I'm in town definitely will play here again. Got to pickup the birdies I left on the course!!!

Perfect evening for a round of golf

We had a great time. We just had 2 of us and their were 3-somes in front of us that were a bit slow. It turned out it was the 3 some 2 in front of us that was so slow. The 3 some in front of us went around them at the end of the 1st 9 and we went around them at hole 16.
