Golf Digest Magazine listed Christmas Lake Golf Club as one of the top 75 public golf courses in America.
Indiana Business Magazine rated the course as the 7th most challenging in Indiana.
Christmas Lake Golf Club makes the most of the Southern Indiana landscape, with tree lined fairways, rolling hills, valleys, and sparkling lakes. With its Zoysia grass tees and fairways, Bent grass greens, and five sets of tees, you’ll enjoy golf at its best.
The course was designed by renowned golf course architect Edmund Ault in 1967. Ault is known for designing the Tournament Players Course at Avenal in Potomac, MD, and the remodeling of the Congressional Country Club. He designed the two nines remarkably different. The front nine is relatively flat, with just one dog leg. The back nine, on the other hand, is very hilly and not quite as open. You’ll enjoy developing different strategies for the two nines and appreciate the feeling that you experienced two courses in one round.

Located between the 9th and 10 holes, the clubhouse offers a comfortable gathering place for golf buddies to eat, drink, swap stories, and watch tournaments on the big screen T.V. And if you’re in a hurry, ask for a snack to go, we’ll even loan you a cooler to take your favorite beverage on the course.
This dogleg left par 4 is one of the most challenging driving holes on the course. Out of bounds on the left and a small lake on the right makes accuracy a must for your tee shot. If you cut the dogleg you can be rewarded with a flat, even lie to a long, narrow green.
