Plum Creek Golf Club is home to a locally well-regarded open parkland layout. The course, which exudes many classic Pete Dye design features, is located in the northern outskirts of the city of Indianapolis. This eminently playable and relatively open layout features tall grasses, multiple water hazards, strategically placed bunkers, testing green complexes and plenty of challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
The front-nine loop winds through the Plum Creek neighbourhood, with the holes laid out in pairs, one heading out, one back. The back-nine loops around Purdue University's Lynwood Barn and features most of the water hazards. Here you'll find large ponds flanking the fairways, and plenty of long ribbon like bunkers as well as mischievous pot bunkers ... giveaway Pete Dye traits.
Pick of the holes: the par-5 17th and par-4 18th holes create an excellent finishing duo, both flanked by the same large pond.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2020].

PETE DYE GOLF TRAIL: Established in 2011 to showcase seven of the great man's courses in Indiana, the Pete Dye Golf Trail comprises: Birck Boilermaker (Kampen course), Brickyard Crossing, French Lick (Pete Dye course), Maple Creek, Mystic Hills, Plum Creek and The Fort.
Referred to by many as the father of modern golf course architecture, Pete Dye made an indelible mark on the game of golf. After carefully studying golf courses in the British Isles, he honed his craft in Indiana, before going on to produce a raft of stunning designs, including TPC Sawgrass, Whistling Straits and Harbor Town. Dye designs, created by Pete, his wife Alice and their family, now span the globe.
2021 Opens: whether by accident or design, four of the top five mens’ Open Championships played in the British Isles occupy consecutive weeks in July: the Irish Open (1-4), Scottish Open (8-11), The Open (15-18) and Wales Open (22-25). The recently relaunched English Open is scheduled for early-August.
Hoag Classic: Ernie Els defends his title in this prestigious PGA Tour Champions event, played since 1991 at the Newport Beach Country Club, CA (Mar 5-7).
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
