$16 (cart included), played on Wednesday, August 2016 at 8:34 AM

Traveling down to Indy on I-69 and allowed myself time (3.5hrs)for a quick 18 w/cart at the $20 Senior Wednesday special price before the locals got out. Having a nice clear morning with great conditions from tee's, to greens rolling between 7-9 depending on angle to sun, made it a great morning. All greens were soft and received/held shots all the way down to my 5 iron. Mix of trees that divide the average width fairways that has thick rough about 5yds from fairway and then it thins out. One stream winds through the course with many ponds that are placed to keep you from getting too relaxed. Watch out for #9 tee shot as the landing area has a hidden pond on the RH side of the fairway as I missed it by 2 feet. Mostly straight away holes that you can visualize how you want to play them and missing where the trees aren't is helpful. Shot a clean 40/40 w/32putts from the Blacks @ 6,907 / 72.1 / 121 slope that is a nice smooth rolling layout with very few traps that will cause you problems. Worth the stop because if its busy, drive 300yds further and the Club Run course will most likely be open, ready to go. (You pay for Club Run at the Walnut course most of the time)

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing, Ranks with the best in this price level
