Great Value

Although the tee boxes need work. The fairways and greens were in good shape for fall golf. The rough areas are very dried out.

Great Course!!

Overall, one of the best public courses in Indianapolis.
Course was well maintained, greens are beautiful.
Staff was very friendly.
Definately worth checking out. Worth the hour drive it took. I would like to go back and play this course multiple times.

Fair Value, Fair Course

I'm only writing this review so that golfers looking for honest reviews have a good source. The course was a good value for the money....but....it is AT BEST...a 3 star course. The staff is WONDERFUL. The course just doesn't compare favorably to other Indianapolis courses that are getting 4 star reviews. Buyers beware.

Good Value

It's OK. Good value for money. Lots of geese. Driving range does not have tees and is pretty torn up.

Scramble

The course was in good shape. However, I loved watching a threesome play a scramble in front of me for 12 holes and would not let me play through.

I Love Saddlebrook

This was the second time that I have ever played this course. Had a real great time Golfing with a client. We pick-up another Golfer so we had 3 & had a wonderful time hacking the ball around the course. I always love playing Golf in Dry conditions. It was been extremely dry in Indianapolis this summer. The hard ground does wonders for my game & score. Will definitely head back to Saddlebrook soon. Thanks for being a great Host O

Don't recommend the course for 9 holes with rental clubs

What a difference 4 days can make. I enjoyed my 18 holes here last Thursday, but not so much today.

Today (Monday, June 27, 2022) I tried playing 9 holes with rental clubs. My tab, even with a senior discount came to $53.60. This was not a good value for the course and included $25 for the rental clubs when I had been charged $15 for the same rentals to play 18 holes just 4- days ago. In fact I was charged $10 more to play 9 holes this time than to play 18- holes last time (and both rounds were a weekday afternoon at 1 PM). Disappointed.

If you have your own clubs and play 18- holes I'd recommend trying the course. If you are visiting and rent clubs be sure to ask what the charge is in advance. Also, be aware that the charge for 9- holes is almost the same as 18. Good value to play 18- holes with your own clubs, but poor value to play 9- holes with rental clubs.
