Indian Run Golf CourseRural Route 2
McClure, PA 17841
This rural course has a different look to its front and back nines. The front side is wide open with very little protection for its greens. The backside is tighter with trees bordering the fairways. The greens are fast in dry weather, slow when it's moist. A man-made pond needs to be cleared on two holes, #4, a 274-yard, par 4, and #18, a 120-yard, par 3.

Not called "Scum Run" by locals for nothing, May 02, 2007

|Tee boxes are in poor shape and the women's tees are placed right in the middle of the fairways. Really, there are no tee boxes, it's regular yard grass with chucks of wood on either side to signal where the "tee boxes" are. The fairways are always full of weeds and crabgrass, and by mid summer the fairways are as brown as possible. Most of the sand traps have been left unfilled for years, with mounds of sand next to the traps waiting year after to year to be put into the traps. The greens are even worse. I have seen the greens have water pockets under them, and you can sometimes see ripples like a water bed go across a few of the greens when you walk on them. The course is short. Many of the par 4s can be easily reached in one with a respectible drive, and in some cases, such as holes 2 and 3 (both par 4s) you can reach the green in one with a 5 wood or 3 iron. The front 9 has no character at all. All the holes with the exception of hole 1 are all straight away. I will say that if the course was properly maintained, the back nine could be very good. If you visit this course and wish to play 9 holes, play the back 9, as the front 9 is a joke. If you do play the front 9, be prepared to smell pig crap, as on the green for 6 and tee box for 7, a pig farm looms just beyond a small patch of trees. Again, be prepared for the sometimes overwhelming smell, especially in mid summer. But for the price, if you're on a budget or are a beginner, it's a good place to play. Some friends of mine that play their often still can't reach a score near par, so it's not like it's a guaranteed good score. But the shortness of the course doesn't hurt.|
