Sarah Shank is a fun little course with quick greens. The course is in pretty good shape for early season, and staff is very friendly. It's an excellent value for 2022 golf under $35 bucks on the weekend when I played it. I always enjoy a go once or twice a year.

Great public course

Course was in great shape. Laid out well. Only negative was we had a very slow 4some in front of us causing a slow pace. Other than that, we had no complaint and will definitely play here again.

Serviceable

Shank is a decent muni layout. A little bit of back and forth, but there are a few spots where a creek runs through or there's some elevation change that will keep you thinking. Greens are on the smallish side, but not too tricked up for the most part. There is some evidence of poor drainage/water damage on parts of the course. Won't knock your socks off, but not a bad round either, it's worth a stop.

good value course in indy

Sarah Shank is a solid public track on the south-east side of town near Beech Grove. The course has a traditional layout with some slight elevation changes throughout the course. The course plays longer than the card says, and the greens were rolling true when I played. We played a weekday twilight and got ahead of a school match. This course is a nice second or third tier course in the area and reasonably priced, I would highly consider a membership to here and Pleasant Run if I lived closer. The staff is friendly and they practice area is well maintained. I love how great the tee boxes always look anytime I play here. The layout is average, but well appreciated by staff and members. It is very walkable, but expect some hills. Well worth giving it a shot especially for the cost and location.

I was very surprised, the condition was superb. I have played the course for over 20 years but it had been several years since my last visit. It was great !
