How We’re Keeping You Safe

For several weeks, Otter Creek has been providing our community with safe ways to enjoy a championship golfing experience despite the challenges of COVID-19. As all of us engage in a careful and calculated transition to a new version of “normal,” Otter Creek remains a committed partner in safety for our employees, players and community. To accommodate social distancing, we’ve made a few alternations to play as normal and want to inform you of what to expect when you visit the course.


First and foremost, please be assured that the safety of our staff and our customers remains our number one priority.


The best way for Otter Creek and our patrons to engage in safe play is to continue to observe physical distancing, frequent hand washing, and additional guidelines outlined by the Indiana State Department of Health.


Otter Creek ensures you that we will continue our diligent and heightened sanitization efforts, and thank you for your part in helping keep our course a clean and safe place to play.


Safe Play Initiatives 

Like other golf courses, we have restored selective service options, including offering carts, food and beverages, and opening the driving range. Carts will be available. Check-in will be on the lower level at the west door.


The restaurant will be serving food and drinks out of the restaurant, accessible through the east doors of the clubhouse. Our lower level restrooms will now be open. The driving range will allow 10 players at a time and be offered in reservable 30-minute slots.


In order to stay open, we need to also ask for your commitment to keeping everyone safe. We ask that all players:

  • Remove all personal belongings and trash from their cart
  • Avoid unnecessary contact with range balls (touch only to place on tee)
  • Avoid contact with flagsticks
  • No gathering in the parking lot
  • Maintain 6-foot social distancing


Golf is a great way for people to engage in health and wellness activities that remain important as our community continues to respond and adjust to COVID-19. Otter Creek is excited to welcome you to the fresh air, beautiful surroundings, and safe physical exercise options our courses have to offer. Stay safe Columbus and we look forward to serving you – the course is in excellent condition!
