Bordered by Lake Shafer in Monticello, Tippecanoe Country Club (TCC) offers competitive and casual golfers alike an 18 hole, par 72 course experience with an impressive lake backdrop. In 2017, TCC was rated #23 on the list of “Top Courses in Indiana” by Golf Advisor for its scenic 6,870 yards of meticulously groomed grounds and challenging holes featured right along the lake.
In 1920, the original 9 were created and designed by Roy Robertson before the lakes and dams were added. After many facelifts and expansions, TCC caught the attention of Pete Dye in 1963. As one of his first projects, Pete Dye designed the back 9 and added lush greenery and tees to the original course – making it into the 18-hole renowned attraction it is today.
TCC is a semi-private club open to the public that is equipped with a fully stocked pro shop and the 19th Hole Bar and Grill, which overlooks the lakeside and golf course. After enjoying TCC’s many amenities and playing on one of Pete Dye’s first creations, explore the city of Monticello. Within minutes, you can shop the boutiques on Main Street, cruise along Lake Freeman or take on over 40 rides at Indiana Beach Boardwalk Resort.
