The course is average

What should be a 30 dollar course at best is nearly 50. Fairways were nearly as long as the rough next to them. Overall, I had a good time though. If you’re looking for a high end course that is well maintained, there are better options for your money.

Very 'meh'

My biggest complaint about this course would be the hidden "hazards", throughout. Let me give you an example of these "hazards".. 220-240 yards right down the center of the fairway (on multiple holes), they have completely unkept drainage ditches with 3 foot grass/weeds. The problem is, some of these are positioned where they are invisible from the tee. I had what I thought were perfectly straight drives eaten by those multiple times.. The rough, if I had to guess, hadn't been cut in about a week and had dead leaves ALL OVER, making any rough-hit balls VERY difficult to find. There were also blind water spots in common driving ranges, surrounding tight fairways. Combine all of these, and I have never lost so many balls during a round. The actual hazards are well placed, and decently maintained, but the "hazards" kinda ruined this course for me. The course was pretty confusing to get around, and the fairways/tee boxes were below average on upkeep. The greens were, however, nicely kept and rolled true. My only contact was with the pro shop guy, who was very standoff-ish, and had a "duh"-attitude with the couple simple questions I had (never been there before). If the "hazards" were better taken care of, I would recommend it as a decent budget course option. With it's current condition, I will not be returning.

Nice place to go

The Pro Shop is right next to the bar.
We did have to wait to tee off for a half hour while we waited for others the go. Once on the course it was well maintained and nice to play on.
Also there where no refreshment carts going. I did ay on a Sunday and it is Indiana so that could of been the reason for this.

Fun course, Excellent Value

Third time I've played this course in the last year. For $28-36 it's a really good value. The grumpy started chastised us for booking on Golfnow instead of calling to book. I'm not local and sometimes the App is just easier. It's a fun course, I'd definitely return.
