Love this course

I have always loved this course. The staff is so friendly, the course is in great shape and is really scenic. No residential areas to mar the scenery. Holes 15-17 are really nice and the par 3's have real character. Don't miss this diamond in Southern Indiana.

Great value course!

Had a ton of fun playing at Sultan Run Golf. The weather was perfect and the only unfortunate thing was that it had just rained and the course was cart path only.
Their staff was very friendly and accommodating, the course was fun, challenging and with awesome views all around. Loved the GPS system in the car that would allow me to know, pin location, green slopes, etc. When playing the course for first time this was very needed.

The 18th hole is just incredible. You have to hit the perfect tee shot and then you're between 130 and 150 out. Great view of the green with the waterfall in the back. So cool!

Definitely want to play it again and would recommend 100%!

It's Really Unreal...

Nestled in a very peaceful area of Indiana, yet close enough to seems not far away. The staff was gracious to my late arrival and helpful to help us get in as much play as we could before closing. I drove 78 miles just to try the course out. It was worth two times the mileage and three times the time!

The fairways are forgiving of the occasional errant shot, but you need to be accurate for this topography. It's like walking on a newly laid mid-shag carpet. The greens are excited and exciting once you get there. A short game champ will be happy here!

Par 5's are perfect fives for both distance, startegy needed to land right, and lots of landing room. Par 3's are no pushover but the newbie can play them well too.

If you get the chance, take the change, and visit "The Real Run"!

Great 3rd Course to French Lick Package

Beautiful layout! Course was in great shape! If you are part of the French Lick Package, make sure you play Sultan's Run. You will not be disappointed. Zoysia fairways were pristine.

Put On Your Bucket List

Had researched French Lick for 5 years and finally committed. Boy am I glad I committed! Awesome layout. Do need to play it a 2nd time if you don't have a caddie. Immaculate conditions. Have already told a bunch of my golfing buddies to come here.

Our caddie Josh was great! Gave us some history and also was very helpful. Played with a wonderful couple from Mt Carmel, IN. Dye and Ross courses are easily two of the toughest courses I've ever played! Conditions were immaculate. Definitely want to come back!

Best value in Indiana

Sultans Run is a MUST play if you’re in the Southern Indiana area. The course is always impeccable and the staff are exceptional. The value, especially during the week simply cannot be beat for a course of this caliber. The views of all the holes are spectacular, and the 18th is something to behold.

THE SULTAN OF PUBLIC GOLF COURSES

Course was in great shape, as usual. They just hosted the Senior LPGA event so it was in top shape. If the course was closer to me I would play it often, but it is worth the 4 hour drive to get there.

A great experience

I have played Sultan's Run a number of times over the years but never took the time to review it. I just got back from a buddies' golf trip on which we played Sultan's Run twice last week. I just want to say that it was a wonderful experience from the moment we drove into the facility to the last putt dropping on Indiana's most beautiful finishing hole.
The staff was terrific and most welcoming! The condition of the course was excellent as expected for a track that was getting ready to host a Senior LPGA event in a couple of weeks.
The holes are varied, scenic, and wonderfully laid out. In general, the greens are expansive and undulating, but fair. There is a fine range facility for your pre-round warm-up.
The Dye Course at nearby French Lick gets a lot of the publicity in this part of Indiana, but for my money, you can't beat a round at Sultan's Run!

The course was in perfect condition

Had a great time golfing, the only problem was when I made the tee time I made it for a foursome, 1 guy backed out and still had to pay for the fourth player. I've golfed there many times over the years, and this has never been done before and had I known they changed it I would have cancelled the fourth and just had a 3-person tee time. The course was in perfect condition like always and really enjoy playing there but I must say it might be a while before I go back.

over priced beverages

Course, as usual, in great shape. Only complaint is they charged $39 for a 6 pack! I have played course all over the midwest, and this is MORE THAN DOUBLE any other course. Ridiculous. Will never buy a beverage there again.
