short staff slow on service or not where the employee needed to be for service
They need more help. We went to the bar to grab a quick snack at the turn. It ended up being one hour before we got back on the course. One person was running around in circles trying to do everything.
Best value around Indy
Nice layout you must be able to hit it straight. Of you play poorly its a great layout. Bunkers need work everything else was great they need a marshall and to stock the proshop with the basics like balls. I will definitely play again.
Horrible Course Condition
Everyone in our group agreed this is the worst course we have ever played. Weed filled tees and fairways and greens that are inconsistent, and poorly maintained, some of which even have mold. Overall condition very poor. Not sure what course these other reviewers played but sure doesn't fit the horrible conditions our group experienced. Waste of time and money, won't be back.
Too Short Distance
It was huge difference between score card and actual.
Most teeing area has been moved forward.
So it had much frustrations.
Good value for money
The course is nice for the money. Drought has been no friend. If your wanting PGA golf stay away. But if your an average player on a budget it’s a good course. Greens were slow to average speed. Sand traps could use new sand.
Course gets worse each time we play
This course clearly needs a new superintendent, if they even have one. The course is in absolutely terrible shape and gets worse each time we play, and this has been an ongoing problem for 5 or so years now! This round will be our last one here. Years ago, this course was in very nice shape, how they have allowed it to fall so far is hard to understand. A complete embarrassment and they should be ashamed! We are done playing here. Absolutely disgusting.
Horrible course conditions
Fairways looks like mowed fields not grass, not an exaggeration either. Not we’ll taken care of by any means, even the greens had dried out dead spots.
This is my home course i play about 20 × a year. Its going thru different ownership right now. Not sure if that's the reason for poor condition of the course or maybe the lack of rain. Hardly ever see the sprinkler system working. Hope the new owners do a better job. The clubhouse is nice, the course layout can be challenging due to the failure of cutting or trimming trees. This course has potential under someone who cares.
The course was in a very playable condition. The greens were in good condition. The rough was challenging but not out of control. To me it is a tough driving course. I would play there again.
The greens were great best Ive seen all year anywhere.. You can tell they are trying to get the fairways back to greatness! New management, give them a year and the course will look amazing!
New name and management
The course is now called River View. I think they are making improvements.
