Non-plus Identity layout and condition

Played this course 3 years ago and now this week. It was a work in progress 3 years ago and not much is changed. The front nine had 4 holes with cart path only aside from the usual 2 par 3s. Six holes were cart path only. One the back nine, it was 3 holes plus the par 3s. It rained 5 days earlier, so there was no need for restrictions. Maybe the golf super was preserving the course for the member twilight play on Fridays, and the member leagues on Saturday. Who knows? The course is rather boring. Lots of uphill fairways and elevated greens. The creek runs throughout the course layout and has no real layout reasoning in my opinion. Then there are water ponds additionally that are just "there". Seems like to make the course challenging the uphill and water make the yardages all play longer. The last time we played it was (and still is) primarily a Pulte housing project around a golf course that was there before the housing project, which is still being constructed. The cart paths are rugged and deteriorating. A number of the bridges have been improved, but several still need work. Players should plan on walking a lot as the cart path is a fair distance from most of the greens. Signs for tee holes still are temporary, although the tee signs are new. A few holes on back nine have new landscaping around the tees. And what were they thinking about placing number 8 and 9 holes on the club side of the road? The two holes are a rugged, unfinished, sloping fairway, run off holes. Of course, it takes you back at the turn to the clubhouse, but for what else. If you play this course, plan on a long round of a lot of sloping hills, elevated greens, and many teeing areas that are uneven and sloping.

Great course, convenient, and friendly staff

This is close to home so I would consider it my home course. I have golfed there several times and always had a pleasant experience. Elliott in the pro shop is always friendly. Would definitely recommend for a fun and pretty well kept course

This used to be a great course

This course advertises online booking tee time rates of $70 to $75 on weekends, so you might think this is a great track.
I played this course many times back when it was called Hanging Tree, then later Bent Tree.

This was my first time playing since the developer took out 5 great holes and turned them into short, flat, straight nothing holes, so he could sell overpriced houses. What a disappointment! Tee placements are not well thought out at all. The new greens are extremely firm and in several cases, sparse.

On one par 5 with a creek crossing the fairway, my playing partner chose, 7 iron, 7 iron, 7 iron and made par. I chose 3 wood, 3 wood, chip, putt for birdie.

The GPS provided by the course showed that #5, the first of the "redesigned" holes showed it as 479 yards...but it is actually 260. The old par 3 #17 is now a 250 yard par 4 and cart path only, with the path far from the fairway, requiring lengthy walks from the path, if you don't go for the green from the tee.

All 5 par 3 holes play almost exactly the same length. Seriously, what course designer would do this??

From a distance (where they are selling homes from $700k-$1M, the course might look good, but trust me, it's a huge disappointment, even when using a greatly discounted coupon from Group Golfer.

Avoid

Poor layout, poor service, slow pace, no course rangers. Paid $50 per person, which in hindsight was too much. Several public courses within 15 minutes of this course, all of which are much better courses.

Fun course in pretty good condition.

I've been to this course quite a few times over the years and this year the overall condition of the course just keeps going up!

The course has been under pretty major construction for the past few years and it has finally for the most part come to an end. All holes are now open and the new holes are about 90% fully grown in, there are a few bare spots in the new areas from irrigation issues from heads being runover and whatnot. The other reviewer who said the course was covered in bare spots and in terrible condition must be blind or just very drunk because the course was not bad at all.

The new layout of having to cross the street to play #8-#9 is very strange and honestly creates a lot of congestion around the front of the clubhouse, and having to cut across 2 neighborhoods to get to 2 different tees is also a little strange but besides that it's not too bad.

The worst part about this course is that a lot of the golfers don't follow the "cart path only" signs or when it is very wet out, you can see many spots around the course where golfers have made ruts in the rough or even fairways, I've even seen a few carts in the creek so I think they just have a lot of golfers who really really like driving through puddles.

Not worth the money

Near bare fairways with weeds; Ridiculously unfair pin placements; many bare areas; inconsistent rough; poorly maintained and an illogical, generally boring up and down layout - almost parkland without the park.

Rock hard greens

Slow pace of play, concrete greens, the course value just doesn’t really match the price.

Potential. Not there yet

Front 9 was the better 9. Back 9 was extremely confusing. Through out he course you never have a sense of direction. Constantly flipping the scorecard over to see how to navigate. When to cross the road etc. a lot of holes share a cart path so it’s a bunch of intersections. Course was wet and cart path only so trying to not let that affect judgment.

Probably not worth it

I’ll preface this review w indont mind and often pay north of $75 for a round, but this was probably worth about $30 or so. 4:40 to play 18. Multiple groups ahead of us we’re super slow. At times we had 2 groups waiting w another on the tee on par 3s. One group finally just quit but it was still slow. No ranger, no starter, just kind of a free for all.

The redesign of the course doesn’t make any sense. You cross the road for 8/9 then drive back for the back 9. The old holes were in fair shape for April in Indiana but the new holes were similar to a $30 course. It may turn out ok, but I’d wait a couple years before trying it again.

For the $ I’d go play the Fort, or Bear slide, or make the drive and play Rock Hallow up in Peru. I might try it again in a couple years, but it needs some TLC and some course / pace of play help on the weekends.

Course was still partly under revision construction. It should be good, once revisions are complete.

Remodel has ruined the course

The whole course remodel has ruined this course. The fact you pay for 18 holes but since one hole is closed down you get to only play 17. Very frustrating when you’re paying full price. Will no longer go to this course as it used to be a favorite but $60+ to play a partial course seems ridiculous. Would never have played had I known the condition and the course restructure.

Trending up!

Course is still undergoing big renovations but it very playable and greens were really good. Fun track. Cheap drinks. Nice staff and great pace of play. I would buy stock in this course, seems to be on the right track.

Only 17 holes are open, which was only downside (free par???).
