Top 5 Northwest Indiana Course I play two or three times a week at a rotation of different courses in Northwest Indiana and Aberdeen is definitely in the top 5 public courses in the region. This course is all about keeping it in play. There are a few forced carries over marsh land and deep ravines. There is water on probably 5-6 holes. For long hitters, there is only one par 5 that is reasonably "reachable". Two of the par 5's have fairways that run out into a ravine at about 240 and 260 so you will have to hit less than driver. In fact, if you drive the ball 250+ you will only need to hit driver a few times all day. (unless you're on the tips) The best part of this course is the layout and mix of holes. Except for the bunkers, which are HORRIFIC, the course is very well kept. The bunkers are like hitting off of the Utah salt flats. Or the moon's surface. That said, the tees, fairways, and greens have been great all year. I like to play the ball down and take extra precautions to avoid the bunkers at all costs. Make sure you play from the correct set of tees. This course is difficult and can get brutal if you don't manage your game properly. If you spray your driver, your odds of being able to play it off of the adjacent hole are slim to none. There are killer weeds and fescue on basically every hole, so hit it straight. If you're looking to play a new course or drive some distance, this place is fun, challenging, and nicely maintained (all but the bunkers). It is definitely worth the drive. Bring bug spray in summer and watch your ball closely in October (leaves). Good luck! You're gonna need it. November 3, 2014
Nature at it's finest You'll love the scenery, but make certain you know yardages and wind direction and velocity. Lots of natural areas to carry, proper club selection is the secret to low scoring. I've played this course several times, It's always well maintained, but pace of play during peak times is not good. I love the fall temps, but hate losing balls in the middle of fairways, (under leaves). Was impressed this particular time of year that the fairways had been completely cleared of autumn leaves and debris. October 14, 2014
Sand trap conditions and Pace of play were horrible! Booked a 1020 Sunday morning time and teed off at 1010. Didn't finish until almost 3pm! And ties the record for one of my longest rounds of 2014. That's completely unacceptable Aberdeen. Never saw a ranger and even the beverage cart girl was amazed that the 16th thru 18th holes were completely empty when she visited us on the 14th tee. Course itself was in good shape. Tee boxes recently aerated (they needed it) and fairways in good shape. Greens were pretty fast (fastest speed conditions I've experienced at Aberdeen over the last several years) however several greens there were many old ball marks not completely repaired which made for a few unexpected bumps in putts if you didn't closely inspect and repair them prior putting. Land in a sand trap? All I can say is good luck. Understand they will aerate the greens in a week or two so call prior to booking. This golf course is a really fun play....too bad they didn't care about the pace of play a lick the morning we played. Only giving them 3 stars significantly downgrading due to pace of play and the sand traps. Normally this a solid 4 star plus experience. September 29, 2014
Nice course Nice golf course. Good layout and fair. Love the fact you don't see any other golf holes when you are playing your hole. Very relaxing scenery. September 20, 2014
Enjoyable outing! The course was in excellent condition. The fairways were like carpet, and the greens were quick and true. I really enjoyed playing the course and felt it was a fair challenge for my golf game. WIll definitely play this course again! September 13, 2014
Nice, Challenging Course We played on a weekend, and waited at the turn and on a few holes - but otherwise the pace was good. Nice course, with a sporty layout. There were a few blind shots and some elevation changes. The greens were in good shape - not slow and pretty true. Great course for the price. September 2, 2014
shocked I played here years ago and the course condition was top notch. I returned to find a poorly manicured course that should not bring a premium price. The bunkers are 2 star at best with many of them overgrown with weeds. The back 9 is very unforgiving, far more so than any tournament course. My guess is this course has had an ownership change in the past few years and the old way is no longer the new way. Overall disappointed and will not return. August 13, 2014
Gem I would consider Aberdeen one of northwest Indiana's few gems. The course is in beautiful shape, staff is very friendly, and you don't feel ripped off leaving. I don't think I would recommend walking this course due to a few journeys from green to tee. Also the notes of the deal I received clearly stated that it came with 18 holes with a cart and practice balls but when I got there they charged me an additional $5.00 for the small bucket of balls. All things considered, I'll be back again. August 2, 2014
