Detailed description

Otter Creek Golf Course is a Public 27 hole golf facility located in Columbus, Indiana. The facility has three 9-hole golf courses. They are The North Course, The East Course and The West Course. These courses can be combined in pairs to form three different 18 hole course challenges.

Renowned golf course designers Robert Trent Jones and Rees Jones created this magnificent 27-hole championship course in harmony with Southern Indiana's existing land. Utilizing the natural contours of the land ensures all golfers a great challenge.

Otter Creek, a public golf course always in tournament condition, has been rated among the top public courses in the U.S. since its inception in 1964. Located in the midst of a serene countryside, Robert Trent Jones Sr. created the original 18 holes of this championship course. His design harmonizes the gently rolling hills of southern Indiana with adding his incredible knowledge of the game by utilizing the existing contours of the land to ensure that each shot is as natural as it could possibly be. Robert's son, Rees Jones, was given the challenge of designing an additional 9 holes that would compliment his father's original course. Opened in June of 1995, the result is the East Course, a "Links" look that is as challenging as the original design.

The score card provided is for the original North/West 18 hole Robert Trest Jones Sr. designed course.

Par for the North/West course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,224 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,581 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 5, a par-5 that plays to 616 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 15, a par-3 that plays to 172 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, the 616 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the North/West combination. The easiest hole is # 15, a 172 yard par-3.
