Share the Fun at Walnut Creek Golf Complex

Being the Best Indiana Golf Course experience drives our day to day acitvity.  We hope your experience at our golf course is challenging, interesting and most importantly – enjoyable. We try to provide a friendly atmosphere for all good sports. Golf is a respectable game and such conduct is enjoyed at Walnut Creek and Club Run.

The Walnut Creek course opened July 1970 and the Club Run course was completed in 1998. Our designs have incorporated hills, woods, water and strategy to give challenging and interesting tests of golf. The new Club Run course is designed as a shot maker’s course. It is not long but is strategic, as you will notice by the slope. It is a one of a kind golf course.  We are often reminded how special it is when a student of Golf Course Architecture or one of the more prominent Golf Course Architects plays the course,  I always appreciate their opinions and comments.  I have been amazed at their reaction!  The large selection of teeing areas on each course allows golfers of all abilities to appreciate each of the courses. The two courses are more natural in design than most golf facilities in Indiana. They were not contrived, but have been developed in concert with nature. We are not a housing development; just play golf and enjoy the nature that envelops the Walnut Creek valley. Escape to the country and leave the crowds behind! We want to be your first destination of choice.

We invite you to discover the “Creek” Walnut Creek!
