Opened in 1998, this Pete Dye design has hosted several high-level college and professional golf tournaments while simultaneously serving thousands of enthusiastic amateur golfers throughout greater Indianapolis and beyond. With five sets of tees ranging from just under 7,000 yards to just over 5,000, Plum Creek is playable by all golfers. Several ponds and a winding stream come into play throughout the course, placing a premium on smart play, all while minimizing the need for forced carries for higher-handicap players.

Fairways in great shape!

The course is green, lush, and well-manicured! Fantastic overall. The greens were a bit slow compared to normal, presumably in part due to the recent aeration - expect greens to be in great shape in a couple of days.

No tee markers?

I understand it is January and you don’t normally get a lot of play this time of year. But, when you get a couple of weekend days in the 50’s you should know you are going to get some activity. There were no tee markers on the tee boxes. So you just had to guess where you should play from. This course has some holes that are very tricky to find. Better markings on WHERE the next hole is would be nice. Generally the course was in pretty good shape. The greens were pretty shaggy, but I guess that is to be expected in January.

Underwhelmed

Course layout was just ok for the Dye courses I have played. Conditions were great for a winter round. The problem I had was the very poor pace of play and the fact that I was forced to play with someone else whose golf etiquette was horrible. I would have loved to rate the course higher but too many things were not up to snuff.

Nice water hazard setups

This time of the year greens still have aeration holes so keep that in mind, besides that good condition for time of the year. Clubhouse and facilities were closed due to covid so I can’t comment on any of those things

Hot Day-Good Course- slow front 9 then fast back 9.

Very hot and humid but course is in good condition.
Very slow due to a slow 4-some but got through on 10 and was wide open the rest of the way probably because of some people quitting after 9 due to the heat. Glad 4-some stopped for lunch, they had fallen 2 1/2 holes behind and didn't let a 2-some through. We had 4 and the twosome finished 3 holes behind us after they snuck through at 10 also. Slow 4some was way back..
Just a word to other golfers. If you aren't keeping up with the group in front of you then LET faster players play through. It's like driving 10mph under the speed limit in the FAST lane and hanging out there.

Solid Course

I play golf rarely and look for value. I received a discount for this course and would play the course again for this price. The condition of the course was good. The greens were chewed up quite a bit and had ball marks all over the surface. It was my first time on the course and the layout from hole to hole can be a little confusing. I ended up hitting the same clubs all day and it seemed like each par four was very similar. The fairways were firm and I got a lot of roll on the my drives. I appreciated that! The practice facility is really nice and the putting green had the same speed as the course greens. Overall, the course was enjoyable and the value was there!
