As is the norm with all of the metro parks courses, this course needs a little TLC. The greens are usually very slow. Its a pretty easy course if you want to go out and shoot a low score.

My friends and I love this course. It is on the short side, so you have plenty of opportunities to score. It is usually in good shape for a muni course and the price is unbeatable.

The front 9 has more character than the back and you get to play under the interstate. The back does finish along the Ohio River, and if you get upset you can deposit that Top Flite in the bottom of your bag into the bottom of the river.

A word of caution...this course is very crowded and a lot of variety in skill level. Be prepared for waiting and for someone to hit a ball into your group. Never finished 18 in less than 5 hrs.

fun course, only course where u can play under interstate 65. Also there was a hooker on site. I arrived from indy at 5 am hoping to be first off, but there were already 2 cars in the parking lot. turns out it was a drug deal. I also heard gunshots. i recommend locking your car doors because the maintenance crew looks ghetto. So if u want to golf, get a prostitute and a little crack, this is the course for you. Beautiful weather, slight chance of drive by.

This place is different. Where else can you play underneath interstate traffic? The truckers will sometimes blow their horns just to mess with you. It's cool!

Greens were in good shape when I played. The course is always packed - pro shop will tell you Wednesday morning is the least crowded time.

Lessons from Craig, the PGA Pro at Shawnee, may benefit your game. Use good judgement if you choose to accept instruction from others on staff; a collared shirt and a club with a training grip is not an appeal to a higher authority.
