Indianwood is an underrated championship course in SE Michigan. I know that the greens have come under some architectural criticism for being monotonous but I found them to be extremely unique, thought provoking, and challenging. I wanted to tee it back up on #1 right after finishing just to get another crack at them. With that being said, I do believe that a few greens (3, 6, 9, 10) could benefit from expansion. The course is littered with top notch strategic holes. The 2nd and 4th stand out on the front as it relates to strategy but the 5-7th holes offer a terrific execution challenge with 3 difficult par 4s in a row. I thought the 9th and 10th felt a little out-of-place compared to the rest of the course but the rest of the back 9 was very fun. The 16th-18th holes provide a wonderful finish to the course (the massive 18th green is an adventure onto itself). All-in-all, this is certainly a top 10 course in the state.
