Played 9/16 weather great

Starting with Cons:
Greens poor bumpy shaggy
Fairways poor, vary sparse of grass
Bunkers have not been machined for quite a while
Never seen course this bad of shape.
Maintenance person cutting greens followed us for 18 holes
Waiting for us to clear,Very annoying since he never hung back
Cart paths a lot of pot holes
Their web site does not mention dates of aerification of greens and fairways, would have not driven from Indianapolis
Pros:
Course layout
Lady behind counter very nice

OC is still one of the best

Love this course, so fun to play. Difficult but fair, tees, fairways, & greens are all in great shape. Rough was up a bit, felt high because it was a wet day with on & off showers.

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.

Nice track

Might be a little far for me 1:30 min drive but it’s a very nice course. I got behind 2 3 sums and they were not interested in letting me through. I get it I’m a 1 sum so I had no standing. I played the north course in 3 hours and the west in 1 hour. I guess that’s still a 4 hour round. Not sure I’d drive that far again but if you live in the area it’s a very nice course.
