Plum Creek Golf Club
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.

Plum Creek 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!
Playable for any level golfer. Fairly easy layout. Course is in good shape.
A nice layout. Accuracy is rewarded. Adequate room off the tee. Ample greens well guarded with smart bunkering.
I can't wait to go back!
This was the best round of golf that I've played in a long time. I'd been wanting to play Plum Creek for some time, but just have never made it over there. Finally, a great deal showed up on Golf Now and I knew I finally had my chance. And they did NOT disappoint! The course is very well designed and you can tell that Pete Dye thought this one our very well. It's a very challenging course, but also has a lot of really wide fairways that make the course a lot more forgiving for more novice players. With a very interesting layout, every hole brings something new, and in typical Pete Dye fashion, I don't believe there are any consecutive holes that play the same direction, so the wind is a different factor for every hole. The course is beautifully taken care of and very-well manicured, and I didn't see so much as a stray candy bar wrapper lying around anywhere. The staff was very friendly and made sure I knew where everything was located once I told them I'd never been there before. The golf pro made sure and physically showed me where the first tee is, as well as where to go get my cart. (As opposed to just lackadaisically "pointing me in the right direction.") The only thing that was a bit of a downer was that play was a little slow that day. But it was also a Saturday afternoon on a beautiful day after it had been raining most of the week prior, so I had a feeling that might be the case, but it was probably the case everywhere that day. Bottom line, I can't WAIT to go back and play here again!!!
Really enjoyed this course
Interesting layout and great condition. The greens were perfect. Also a great value. Would play it again.
I honestly wish this place wasn't so popular. It might be the nicest public course in the area.
Add this course into your rotation
Very impressed with this course, especially the design of the holes. Great risk/reward opportunities and very pleasing to the eye. The course was in great shape, the price was excellent, there's not much more that you can ask for. Looking forward to playing here again soon.
It's a fun track that is in great condition. Greens putt great. Not my favorite layout but it's hard to beat this course when you consider the value it offers and like I said, it's fun.
An excellent Pete Dye design. Looks easy, appears to be short vs other courses, but that look is deceptive. The correct lines are utmost important, and the greens and wind are the golf courses defence and they are tough.
Plenty of golf course from the back tees, new owners have made some excellent improvements, and you have a very playable enjoyable, but tough golf course. Well worth the under market Plum is charging
Solid, challenging track
Plum Creek suffers in comparison to its nearby neighbors(looking at you Prairie View), but its stands up quite well on its own. Played on a perfect Monday, little wind, with temp in the mid 70's.
Course conditions were fine, especially after so much rain. The layout presents plenty of challenge, Dye's most diabolical work here is the greens - get on the wrong side of the pin and you face real work to 2-putt. All-in-all a solid keeper on the north side of Indy.
Really enjoyable course. Sunday afternoon with beautiful weather and still finished in 4 hours. Greens are pure and roll true.
Great overall value
Played this course for the first time. We did have one in our group that was familiar with the course, and that helped tremendously. I thought the course was in fantastic shape. Pace was just fine. We had a rain delay of about 30 minutes which was handled expertly by the staff. As hard as the rain came, the course handled the water just fine. Very friendly staff from the clubhouse to the kitchen. Bar folks let us stay around a little longer than we should have, and we appreciated that. I would highly recommend this course to anyone, and I'll look foward to playing it again soon.
one of the nicest courses around.the staff was very courteous.my buddy was impressed with the course also.will play again.
