Featured Golf Course Review:
Griffith Golf Center -- IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS
Review by: David Curatolo This par 3 course is about half the size of most 18 hole courses. Average distance to the green is 150 yds. There are several sand-traps and a couple of water hazzards. For beginners and others who have yet to master the game this course provides 2653 yards of moderately challanging fun and it won't take you too long to complete a round. The fees are reasonable (less than $ 30 w/cart). The facilities are accomidating with a bar and food available. There are batting cages, mini-golf and other fun activities for the entire family.

Riverside Golf Course -- Flat and nothing too flashy
Review by: Dan Wearstler I had been told that Riverside Golf Course was the oldest public golf course in Indianapolis. What I wasn't told was that the course would be very flat and predictable. If you have read some of my former reviews you will know that I am taking up golf after being away from the game for more than 30 years. One of the reasons for returning to the game is to enjoy time with friends, take up the challenge of the game, and to walk/ride the pretty courses in the city. Unfortunately, this course did not provide much in the way of scenic beauty. While the course had golfers of all ages and skill-sets, it had little of the attractions ( water, rolling land, creative course management) that would draw me back for another round. The course did have a very unusual design on Hole 13 which offered the challenge of hitting up a rather large hill to a winding green. However, on Hole 18-Par 3 (your last impression of the course) you are forced to hit your tee shot from an artificial mat that is surrounded by some sort of artificial turf. This area of the course will bring back memories of your worst driving range experience. The best I can say about Hole 18 is that I was in such a hurry to tee off and get out of that area that I placed my tee shot near the pin for my only par of the day. While I am not likely to return to this course ( Indianapolis offers too many other challenging and creative courses), the environment is friendly to those golfers who seek to improve their game and ask little in the way of beauty and design.
