Course Review and Comments

The Good: Pretty upscale design is located just south of the Michigan/Indiana border off I-69. Great design meanders through outlying trees with great par 3's, nice variation in Par 4's, and risk-reward Par 5's. Glendarin Hills prides itself as a "total golf experience" and they are correct: very good course conditions, superb greens with fair undulation, and nice on-course amenities include GPS. Off-course amenities include a top-notch clubhouse with full restaurant, bar, and event ballroom. Practice facilities and service above par as well. At $70 a round in peak season, a little expensive, but on-par with some of the nicer courses in the Michiana area. No houses and watch out for a wild turkey or two.

The Bad: Some areas of the course can get very dry. Course does not have a great "twilight" or off-peak value. In the middle of no-where Indiana and a 2+ hour drive from Indianapolis or Detroit.

The Verdict: Glendarin Hills is a top 10 golf course in Indiana that nobody knows about. A complete golf course that will only get better with age.

Best Hole(s): The par 3 4th is a beautiful little hole perched amongst a cluster of trees. The short Par 4 12th is a classic hole that requires precision off the tree and a downhill approach to a small green.
