Honest opinion.

Made a two hour drive to play the course. Was told it was one of the nicest in Indiana. The course was decent but not worth the drive. The fairways were the saving grace. Very plush and well maintained.. Greens were shaggy but playable. Staff was friendly. With all the hype I had heard I expected the course to feel more luxurious. Not the courses fault.

Best Public Course All Around

I play with a group of retirees, 20 to 40 players weekly where we play different Indiana courses with a shotgun start. Each time we play this course we collectively are amazed at the quality of the condition of the course, the carts and the friendliness of the staff. The bent grass tees and fairways are plush, greens run true and hold shots into them. Sand traps are full and raked. Electric carts with auto brakes are best you can find anywhere. Yesterday we brought 37 golfers and to a man each heaped praise on the quality of this course and we don't say that lightly. We are a very intense group of better than average players who appreciate course management and quality and this course consistently is among the best. Course is also very picturesque and offers a good challenge in the skill of play. Very reasonably priced for overall quality.
