Eagle Creek Golf Course -- Indianapolis
Eagle Creek Golf Club offers two different courses for Indianapolis golf fanatic, a brilliantly designed 18-hole championship course, and a nine-hold layman’s course constructed by the local parks and rec department.
Traditionally a public, municipal course, Eagle Creek has recently been taken over by a private company, and based on some of the other reviews I’ve read online, the course took a turn for the worse when this happened. Having played Eagle Creek only twice and both of those times being recently, I can’t speak to what it was like when it was publicly owned and operated, but for the most part I had a good experience on both courses.
I found the championship course, aka the Sycamore, to be beautiful. It was challenging in many ways (mostly water hazards, if I remember correctly, at least water was the trouble that I found) but also offered several par fives that invited you to go for the pin. I had a birdie putt that I should have sunk, but for the yips. I can’t blame it on the greens, because they were immaculate.
The nine-hole course was, as you might expect, considerably cheaper and designed for the weekend duffers. Still, it was a nice stroll, and was maintained well for a course of its price range.
I look forward to playing other Indianapolis Golf Courses in order to compare Eagle Creek to other courses in the locale, but for now I give Eagle Creek a modest 7/10 rating when everything is considered.
4 magic moves
Four Magic moves talks and illistrates an early wrist break, which can be incorporated with a forward press start, it worked for me as a starting point of a more consistent ball striking.
Beechwood is great fun--easy to walk--in excellent condition.
Great course in NW Indiana. Excellent condition, easy to walk. Small greens make up for shorter course. Has a history of good players as members. Home course of the LaPorte Slicers and Uebele Invitational.
Hidden Gem in Central Texas
Course has hosted numerous college, high school and TGA tournaments. Annual host of TAPPS 5A Championship and Starburst Junior. PGA Head Professional is Bill Euler. Three other PGA Mmbers on staff: Magnus Dohlvik, Sam Wright and Greg Antunes. Course record 64 held by Andy Dillard, Cade Stone and Lance Combrink.
The jewel of Lenawee County
Great track. At only around 6400 yards from the tips it looks on the card like a pushover, but looks can be deceiving. Subtle breaks in the greens make it tough to go low on this hidden gem.
If you like golf books, you will surely like this one.
This is a very well written book by one of the best golf writers around. A lot of interesting information and some great insight on the lives of Hogan, Nelson and Snead as well as their golf careers.
Correction to my first rating sorry about that
In my first review I misunderstood the rating system thinking 1 was best forgive my mistake it definately is a 5 star place to play. Confirmed by many of the people I play with that are playing for the first time. They all say they didn't realize how nice this course is.
Love This Version More than the First! - Kindle Edition
In the mid 2000s, the original Tour Tempo began a controversy with the notion that tempo actually aids good technique, and is not the result of it. At that time, the book paid passing interest in the short game. That is where TT2 comes in...
In TT1 Novosel made mention that most pros' short games had the same tempo as the full swing. After a few years of research, Novosel concludes the short game is a completely different tempo from the long swing. Just like TT1, tones are provided (via weblink download) for the reader to follow.
At $10 the Kindle edition of TT2 is a steal, containing a wealth of information in an easy-to-read format that can be taken to the practice range for reference via tablet or smartphone.
A joy course for the "mature" golfer
A great course for the older golfer from the white tees, a challenge but fair. Not a push over, but most second shots to a par 4 or third shot to par five are reasonable shorter iron shots if a drive is relatively well hit by a "mature" golfer. (noticed how I avoided the use of "old geezer"). A note of caution ...keep it in the fairway. It is just a great place to enjoy golf.
Best Course in the State
Best country club value in the state. The redesign has made it the most challenging course around. Can't beat it. Give it a try.
