Tippecanoe Country Club
Pete Dye’s 1st Project
Bordered by Lake Shafer, Tippecanoe Country Club has served as one of White County’s oldest and most treasured attractions. The original 9 were formed in 1920 and designed by Roy Robertson. It was built before the lakes and dams were added and was on the banks of the Tippecanoe River. TCC has since been updated and expanded several times. The most important change to the golf course was in 1963. A new designer in the golf business came to complete his first project here at TCC. Pete Dye completely designed the back 9 to make it an 18-hole facility and also re-designed the tees and greens on the front 9.
Tippecanoe Country Club is a semi-private club that is open to the public. We invite everyone to come and share the wonderful atmosphere of our golf course. The clubhouse features a fully stocked pro shop and a full bar that offers a beautiful deck with boat docks overlooking Lake Shafer. Our facility is a great place to host outings, tournaments, charitable fund-raisers, corporate outings, etc as we will bring a professional touch to make the event effortless for you. Be sure to check out the Upcoming Events sections which will have club activities listed for each month. If we have an event listed on the day you would like to play the course, tee times may still be open. Please call the pro shop at 574-583-9977 for availability and event information.
Today, the beautiful 18 hole, par 72 course is a challenge for the competitive golfer, but is a pleasure for the casual golfer. Its scenic 6,850 yards are meticulously groomed and is considered one of the finest in the state. The course opens as soon as weather permits in the spring, usually early-April and remains open until around Thanksgiving.
Tippecanoe Country Club’s full service Pro Shop offers competitive pricing throughout the season. All golf programs are ran by Jason Walke, our PGA Head Golf Professional and General Manager. Jason and his professional staff are available to offer lessons and club fitting to help you get the most out of your experience at Tippecanoe Country Club. Bruce Bullerdick part of the GCSAA and Head Greens Superintendent, maintains the grounds with an extensive in-house crew. They keep the grounds neatly trimmed and beautiful; pair that with beautiful Lake Shafer and we offer one of the best golfing experiences in the region.
