Long and tight. Greens were "ok" could be better but ok overall. fairways were maintained, rough not maintained as well. I.E clover, hard and packed in places, etc. Overall a very challenging course if you can't drive the ball "straight" 250yds plus.

Whoever designed this course had to be drunk. If you are a serious golfer, there are several goofy holes. The greens are usually slow. The tees and fairways are decent enough. Its cheap though.

Played this course recently for the first time in 6 years. We got out in between two thunderstorms, but the course played well. It is the longest muni course I've played in Louisville at 7,000+ from the back tees. Very impressed overall and thought it stacked up well against many of the higher end courses in Southern Indiana.

The course has a lot of character and scenery on the front and back with well placed tee boxes and interesting downhill doglegs. The front and back feel like two completely different courses.

I'm not sure why people are trashing hole 1 and 10. Like anywhere else, put the ball in the fairway and you won't have a problem. In my opinion, best bang for your buck in the Louisville area.

Sept. 2008 review. Being an out-of-towner, I read reviews and played course with an open mind. WOW!! Nice course. Long yardage on many holes. Cart request for those of us over 55. Front nine couldn't see the pin on many holes. Very nice driving course. You do need to aim and shoot correctly, otherwise you are in and then past the rough and then lost ball. Good hilly course. Watch out for the "funnel hole." I thoroly enjoyed the round, price was right. Scenery--can't beat it. Must be awesome in fall colors. Nicely stocked pro shop, friendly personnel.

I must say that when I came to Louisville back in 2004, I really enjoyed playing at Seneca. It was a really fun course with a lot of challenge. Then in late 2006 the course started to go downhill. I played there until early 2007 and then stopped altogether. I just played on the 24 of Feb for the first time in almost a year and to my surprise the course has gotten worse. It is truly sad as it is a great layout. The Tee boxes, fairways and greens are the worst in Metro parks. People keep saying we have a rough summer and wet winter, but if I'm not mistaken so did all of the courses in Louisville and none of them suffered the damage that Seneca has. I think it a case of a lazy uncaring grounds crew. I will never play there again as Vettiner and Long Run are much better and more fun and the staff treats you well. I think all they care about at Seneca is getting your money and sending you out the door.

What a poor, poor, poor, course!!

Seneca used to be a fun course to play, with lightening fast greens and great fairways, but now it's a joke. Just look at #1. It has the worst fairway in Louisville and all the balls funnel toward the street. The redesign of #10 is also atrocious. Before, the hole was a risk/reward hole where you had the option of going for it in two. Now that's impossible. A good drive will put you on the downslope where you have to hit a wedge followed by another wedge into a TERRIBLE green that has no continuity. Only go to Seneca if you want to play a cheap course, otherwise stay away.

I started playing the course again since July of this year and the course is really starting to come around. I've noticed that they are moving # 15 back about 75-100 yards, which should add some much needed yardage to this Par 5 to make it a challenging hole. The new # 10 is a terrific hole and can be a real challenge to make it on in 2 if you have the guts and distance to try. Be careful though, since "jail" surrounds the entire hole..lol good luck!. I think the zoysia is really starting to show alot of promise. You should start noticing some premier fairways by next year with the great job the grounds keepers are doing to get these fairways in shape. It appears that the greens are also coming around and should also be in very good shape by spring of 2008. This course should be a true test of golf by 2008. Oh and before I forget,# 1 is a true test for those who really like a challenge. Looks like they are adding some bunkers behind the green for those who don't know how to land a ball soft ...lol.

Overall, the value is awesome!

Good luck!
