Update – in mid 2011, we heard that the Red Course was closed.
Indian Oaks Golf Course is what golf is all about – fun holes, somewhat challenging but fair, lots of variety, pretty, good friendly laid-back service, above average condition, and very affordable – when was the last time you played a course on the weekend for under $30 and got a free lunch?
When we played in July 2008 Indian Oaks had 30 holes of golf (nine on the Red Course, nine on the White Course, and 12 on the Blue Course) with another 6 holes which will be open in late 2008. We started on the Blue Course and loved playing it's 12 holes. Wow – what a fun, challenging, and unique round of golf. Since there aren't any hole layouts on the scorecard or at the tee boxes, the first time you play the Blue course it can be a little tricky, but very fun. It's narrow, with dog legs, blind shots, split fairways, and more. To score well you need to manage and carefully plan your shots. A very fun 12 holes of golf.
The White course is also fun to play and some of the holes can be challenging. We haven't played the Red course which we understand is the easiest of the courses – it's more open and has less trees.
We found the greens and fairways to be in pretty good condition, particularly for a course that costs under $30! The greens were small, a little slow, and most had some minor slope or undulation. Indian Oaks is part of a tree farm, meaning all the fairways are lined with a wide variety of trees and Crepe Myrtles which add color to the course. Each of the courses are short (ie, 2742 from the tips), so plan on keeping your driver in the bag on most holes. Indian Oaks is a fantastic and fun course to play and worth the drive.
