There are some decent courses on the south side of Indy. I'd say the best one is at Blue Herron Park in Franklin. A nice 18-hole course with plenty of challenge and fun. The course at Mt. Gilead Church in Moresville is also a decent 9-hole round of dgolf.

But on the growth side, both Southeastway Park and Southwestway Park have plenty of suitable and available land. Southeastway would be 18-holes, pretty similar to Brookside or Wasington parks, but with more land. Southwestway has lots of woods, some hefty terrain and even a little water, it would make a very nice 18-hole course. All that is needed is political willpower and then funding.

I was thinking Southwestway as well. Winding River GC is right there, though. there is some good terrain there.

Southeastway would be perfect for me since it is 5 minutes from my house. I haven't made it to the course in Franklin yet. It takes me as long or longer to get there as it does to the north side of town so I haven't made it out there yet.

Another step forward....

Met today with the Carmel Parks department manager and crew leader who are in charge of the crews doing the clearing for both parks. Work should begin at Lawrence Inlow in the near future and it looks good for a late May opening. Hazel Landing is a bit more of a challenge from the clearing standpoint and it is still a work in progress. The course could open in June, maybe July.

I've played Hillcrest, Dillon and Northview, all 3 courses you've designed MacDaddy, I guess my question is will these two courses be par 3 courses like the ones i've played or will par vary somewhat?

The course at Lawrence Inlow is designed to be a rec course, good for kids, beginners, even folks with ADA issues. More experienced players should actually make most (if not all) of these holes in 2 shots.

The Hazel Landing design is very different. At over 7,000' from the Blue tees and lots and lots of trees factoring into most holes, it will be quite a bit harder. In fact, there will be some holes that you would be very proud to get a 3 on, but most likely will not. That said, they will all be par 3's. Scoring is all realtive anyway, so if you shoot parr at Dillon, you may shoot +10 at Hazel Landing. Changing the par to "63" or whatever, won't change that. Just the warm fuzzies that people get by shooting "par". Leaving it at 54 allows casual players to more easily keep score in the head.

I'm going to say it's safe to assume DisCatchers on the courses like all of your other courses? also can't wait until the rumored Ace Race on Inolw

Lawrence Inlow will have the 'traditional" Innova DISCatcher Pro baskets. Hazel Landing will have the new DISCatcher Pro "28" targets.

Ace Race at Inlow.... maybe!
