The Course at Aberdeen
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The greens were in great shape, hardly any divot marks.
