Indian Hills Golf Course Clubhouse

Clubhouse and Amenities – Rating 4.76

The Indian Hills clubhouse presents both drawbacks and notable advantages. Beginning with the drawbacks, the food and beverage options are limited, and there is a lack of variety in apparel. On the positive side, the clubhouse boasts an extensive equipment selection, providing services such as club fitting, ordering, and custom club making at highly competitive prices. Although the parking, carts, and cart paths are average, the standout feature lies in the exceptional service, great people and the opportunity to acquire tailor-made equipment that perfectly complements your game.

Front: 275 yds
Middle: 358 yds
Back: 415 yds

We had back-to-back par 3’s, why not back-to-back par 5’s as well? The tees are large and level but not on a tee box. Golf the flat fairway with a severe dogleg left and thick, medium length rough. There are dirt bunkers and a maintained fringe. A hazard awaits at the left of the green. The green itself is small but receptive and runs at a medium speed.
