Indian Springs Golf Club
Course on a comeback
Haven't played Indian Springs for over a year. Course was in decline last time I played. Since the Indian Springs Neighborhood Assn. bought it this year, due to financial difficulties of the previous owner, things seem to have gotten better. The sand is apparently being upgraded in the bunkers. All the front nine bunkers appear to have had their sand replaced, and the sand quality is the best I've seen on any of the dozen or so courses I've played this year. That includes two private country clubs. The back nine had a few bunkers that had yet to be upgraded.
The course is laid out links-style, meandering in and out of a pleasant subdivision over a wide range of property. Much of it is wooded, with many water hazards. Because of the links nature, it plays rather tight, especially number 17, which is an especially challenging hole. This is a very narrow, short par four with a pond to the right of the fairway, which slopes severely towards the water. A drive or second shot here, which does not go in the water is a good shot indeed.
The course, though not pristine, is in very nice condition, considering the difficulties of the last owner. There is, however a good deal of construction near the entrance to the course. The area under construction was sold off to developers, and was the location of the old parking lot. There is a new parking lot which seems much better than the old as far as convenient access to the pro shop is concerned. Perhaps this property sale is the source of the funds responsible for the noticeable course improvements. There is a minor convenience due to the construction coming off #18 near the clubhouse, as well as the eyesore and noise it imposes. However this would in no way prevent me from playing again soon. The clubhouse itself is very nicely appointed.
This is a challenging and fun round of golf for the price. Also it was a pleasant surprise. It appears as if there are only good things in store at Indian Springs CC. I will be playing there again soon.

Good Fall Value
Course was empty in early November. Nicely maintained for this time of year. Only drawback, leaves! Catch those open weather windows for nice day out.

Nice course, well maintained, staff was friendly, pace of play was what you would expect for 18 holes 4hr's, driving range overlaps onto hole 18 and you can lose you ball because of the people hitting over onto the 18th because of the range balls but this is a minor issue, water comes into play on a few holes along with houses but this makes for good placement shots off the tee, good course will play again when I see golfnow.com deal

Nice easy course!
Staff was nice. I went 2 days in a row because I was travelling. If I would be living around there, It would one of my favorite course.
