Indiana Jewel keeps its Glitz on!

Most folks in Indiana know about Otter Creek due to its history of hosting some big state events. The course has some great history and my suggestion to you is to head to Columbus and make some of your own. The condition at the course was world class! Fairways and Greens were perfect and the rough was as it should be, rough! The staff was outstanding and the hospitality was true “Hoosier”!
Make the trip, enjoy the day and it will be one to remember!

This course has great features

The course is very challenging with greens that are immaculate, firm, fast and definitely difficult but roll very true. The length and layout is exactly what you would expect of a championship golf course. The staff are great as well. I recommend giving it a go if you’re in the area. It won’t disappoint.

Awesome as always!!

Gorgeous 27 hole course, fully booked on weekends still awesome speed of play. Tough off the tee, miss it in the wrong spot and it’s hard to recover. Rough well maintained and so are greens and fairways.
I have played the course several times but still hard to read putts and how much they will break. Greens are tough and guarded by bunkers on most holes.

New golfer at this course

I really enjoyed the round. From the staff to the others playing, everyone was nice and helpful. No doubt we had to wait a bit. But not bad at all. Very fun layout of course.

A Beautiful Course, Overbooked

This is an absolutely beautiful Robert Trent Jones, Sr. course that with postage stamp greens. It's a lovely course that is in great shape and has a lot of holes that require challenge through shot decision making.

However, when we played the course was massively overbooked. Pace of play was slow and the starter informed us when we reached the first hole, "We're really backed up, it's going to be a slow round."

How packed the course was made for an unenjoyable round of golf. Consistently waiting for long periods of time between shots and dealing with groups behind hitting into our group. What made this more frustrating is that the course actually has marshals, but they're more concerned with repeatedly asking your group (on seven different occasions) if you found a lost wedge instead of encouraging pace of play for slower groups.

Beautiful course, but massively overbooked.

Nice course. Pretty views. Wait time too slow.

For a Tuesday, it was way too crowded and pace of play was too slow. Need to have management of play.

Otter Creek North/West

This is one of my favorite golf courses to play.
The design is exceptional, bunkers placed in the perfect places to challenge every player no matter which tee you use. Condition is consistently very good to excellent.
I would play it much more often if it wasn't 90 mins away from my home.

Fall golf perfection!

We played Oct 2nd, 2020 and the course was in outstanding condition! The greens were fast, smooth and true. The fairways were tight and firm. Great RTJ layout with lots of sand. The staff could not have been friendlier. A must play if you are near by! We will be back!

Great Track

Otter Creek is not fancy, but it is a wonderful golf course. The North/West 18 holes is a must play for avid golfers. I travel almost two hours a couple times a year to experience what I consider to be one of the best public courses in the Midwest.

Golf course is a great value

Otter Creek is a little isolated, but once you get there, you will enjoy 27 holes of fantastic golf. The original 18, North and West, is a tremendous layout while all 27 holes are always in great condition. Well worth the trip to Columbus, IN
