Home to 26 Indiana Amateur Championships
Located in the midst of a serene countryside, Otter Creek Golf course has been ranked among the top 25 public golf courses in the U.S since its inception in 1964. Renowned golf course designers Robert Trent Jones and Rees Jones created this 27 hole championship course in harmony with Southern Indiana’s gently rolling hills. Utilizing the existing contours of the land to assure each shot a natural challenge, Jones has distinguished Otter Creek as a championship golf course unique to all others.
A public golf course always in tournament condition, Otter Creek continually intrigues even the most accomplished players. Some of the best golfers in the U.S. play these 27 holes. Winding through 300 acres of hilly terrain and more than 3000 trees, the Clifty and Otter creeks meander throughout the course as natural water hazards. Classic style trees and rich, bent grass fairways lead to the large, challenging greens, also of bent grass for which Jones is noted… and all bunkers are filled with white sand, imported from North Carolina.
Jones called the 13th hole the best he had ever designed and dubbed it “Alcatraz.” It is short- 185 yards, par 3- with the green on an island and framed by towering Indiana Sycamores.
