Not on the weekend
Two and one half hours for front nine. Made the turn...three foursomes on the tee. Rude staff. Not enough staff....no rangers. They just keep pushing and pushing people out in the course...and they have zero idea how yo handle 3 nines. None. Never play here again.

Good course but numerous large divots left from golf tournament.

Not worth your time
I'm golf addict, and I live very close to Indian Lakes. I hadn't played there in a number of years because of the pace and conditions. There was a good deal on golfnow, so I thought I'd give them the benefit of the doubt. After all, it had been about four years since I played there.
Well, nothing has changed. And, here are the issues they have:
1. Pace is awful. There are zero rangers on the course to get anyone to try to play at what I would call a "normal" pace. Our round was five hours-ugh.
2. The course is in bad shape. Unrepaired divots and ball marks everywhere. I got sick of fixing so many I finally stopped. I felt like the course should have paid me to play since I did so much work on it. Same problem with the bunkers. There are plenty of rakes, but nobody seems to use them. This issue is about the clientele, yes, but if the course was monitored with rangers that would tell players what is expected, it might be in better shape.
3. The GPS is inaccurate (I use a bushnell). There were a number of holes where the GPS showed between 160 to 190 yards, and these numbers were off by as much as 15 yards. The majority of the distances from around 170 were off by 8-10 yards. Some holes showed the flag in a position different from where it actually was.

Fun round pace of play a bit slow at times. Agree with previous comments about slow play and rangers. Overall decent course for the money. Would play again.

Booked last minute, had a great time. Golf course in nice condition, played Highland and Woodlands. Teed off @ 11:50am, done by 3:15pm as a threesome. Can't beat that!

one of our favorites
3 challenging and interesting 9s, Mike and the staff are friendly. The greens are in very good shape except for those who do not fix their ball marks on the green---congrats to the groundskeeper.
Would have given an excellent rating but for the pace of play. There was a 4some who was extremely slow. Nobody in front of them for 2+ holes. We finally passed them and we didn't see anyone behind us (even on the 2 previous holes behind us) all day long.
We'll definitely be back because we really enjoy playing here and the pace of play was an exception rather than the rule.
