Course was in incredible shape for this late in the season. Plum Creek always goes out of their way to give you a CC feel and amenities are always top notch. The course, while a bit short from the whites has a great balance between being challenging, but also playable... which keeps rounds (even when busy) at 4 hrs or less. Lastly, PC isn't afraid to discount rates which other neighboring courses don't do. Much appreciated for a father of 4.

Played on Sunday morning, with threat of rain and pretty windy (it did sprinkle a bit off and on). Great price on GolfNow.

We had rain earlier in the week, so the course was in very good shape, especially considering it's Nov. Tees were grassed well, pretty flat. Fairways, rough and bunkers were all in great condition. Greens are probably some of the more consistent you will find around here; very fair, smooth, fit the course very well. You'll find a lot of Pete Dye's favorites here, so slicers beware. I'd categorize most landing areas as fair, so you can get the ball in play. Most of the greens are elevated, so while a few holes are pretty short, the approach is trickier. We played the blues, and with the wind, we had a few longer approach shots in. The par 5s are pretty gettable, and the par 3s are mostly tame. I enjoyed a few holes more than others, #1 is a fun opener, risk/reward; #4 is a solid hole with a split fairway, a creek thru the middle; #7 is a tough hole into the wind. The closing stretch is fun, with #16 a longer par 3, #17 a par 5 over the lake and #18 around the same lake again. (no slicing allowed here, pick your spot on 17 tee with caution!).

Conditions were very solid, made the course very fun. I wouldn't call this one of Pete's best, but consistency matters. I think they get a fair amount of play, so they are doing the right things putting some money into the super's hands. I'll definitely be back, I played pretty bad on the back nine, so paybacks are in order!

Plum Creek is a course that a player can score well. Challenging but not hard for the average golfer. Every time I've played the course, it's been in excellent conditions. Fairways cut, greens quick and the rough is grass, not weeds.

The staff is extremely friendly, from the guys in the pro shop to the girls that work in the snack area.

Good practice facility, they have balls available to chip and good putting greens for practice.

Outdoor lounge and TVs to catch up on golf, football or baseball games.

Beautiful course, great greens. Whole course is nice, 17 and 18 are spectacular. Excellent chipping area next to putting area. Easily a four star.

Other people are slow, I get it. But when the pro shop can’t or won’t do anything about it - lost a a star. Members playing behind us were frustrated (not with us) and quit after nine because of the slow play. Apparently this isn’t the first time.

Plum Creek is 5 minutes from where I live. I play it often and I am never disappointed. It has lots of challenging holes, yet is fairly forgiving. The greens are great. I like many of the great courses around Indy, and Plum Creek ranks right up there with all of them.

From Tee to Green the course was very good. However, the greens were awful. Very, Very slow and quite bumpy. A lot of un-repaired ball marks. No GPS. For the price charged, there should be GPS on carts. The day I played, the course was only worth about $25 per round - I paid $35 + Golf Now fee.

It's a challanging and forgiving at the same time, one of the hallmarks of a Dye course. The first thing you have to understand is the course is heavily played. They have a large Membership and lots of local regulars, as well as pulling from all over the state. That said they do a great job keeping the fairways, rough and bunkers in sharp all summer. The greens can be hit or miss. Typically they roll about medium speed, and there's lot of subtle breaks. There are commonly a lot of ball marks, it's frustrating when golfers don't repair their marks but it's really bad here. There's a lot of risk/reward options so you can play the course different ways. There's water on probably half the holes, a creek runs through the property and there's several large ponds on the back nine. The pace of play isn't terrible but but it's not fast, especially on the weekends. And you can get stuck behind a "social" group that's more interested in seeing thier neighbors than playing golf. Overall it's a great experience, I play it regularly and I highly recommend it.

By far one of the nicest golf courses I have ever played. This course is challenging and makes a golfer hit shots. I would recommend this course to anyone without hesitation. My brother and I found a hot deal and took advantage. This will be a course that I try to play whenever I have a free Saturday to travel and play golf.

It was very nice. Not a huge fan of playing on courses built into subdivisions but there was room for error! Course conditions were great! I would only change one hole and that is the Par 5 10th. I would move the tee boxes away from the clubhouse a bit and make it a par 4 which would make the course play at par 71. Still have water in play all along the right side but it is just too drastic of a right angle!
