Challenging Play and a Wealth of Amenities Await at Moss Creek Golf Course & Banquet Center

Pam Olson, co-owner of Moss Creek Golf Course & Banquet Center, says the golf course is popular because it offers a nice variety of what golfers are looking for.

“Moss Creek Golf Course offers terrific views and challenging play for golfers at every skill level,” Olson said. “You will find the course to be one that many first-time visitors believe they will shoot well under their handicap, yet leave wondering why that didn’t happen.”

Olson noted that golfers enjoy the atmosphere.

“Moss Creek is family owned and operated,” she said. “The owners are Tony Olson and Tara Wildermuth, Paul and Julie Olson Zeikle, and myself.”

Olson said Moss Creek has been around for a long time.

“Located five miles southwest of Winamac, in Pulaski County, Indiana, Moss Creek Golf Course opened for play in 1959 as a nine-hole course,” Olson said. “It was owned by nine men, who each designed one hole. The course was sold in 1985, and the back nine was shortly added, making it a par-70 course.”

The Olson/Zeikle family purchased Moss Creek in 2017 and is excited to be going into their eighth year of ownership.

“We have enjoyed getting to know our golfers, some of which have been playing here since it opened 65 years ago,” Olson said. “We love to see families and multiple generations of golfers come out and play.”

Olson added that Moss Creek is a course well worth trying, and deserving of its reputation as one of the finest courses in northern Indiana.

“Moss Creek has a traditional layout with varying obstacles,” Olson said. “Half of the course cuts through wooded areas and other parts take on the waters of Moss Creek. While there are a number of cart bridges that cross water along the course, golfers must cross over water seven times on the front nine alone. After you tee off on the 323-yard 11th hole, you will pass through a red covered bridge en route to the elevated green.”

Moss Creek’s 18 holes on weekends and holidays is $44 with a cart, and $33 during the week.

“We have a twilight special starting at 4 p.m.,” Olson said. “That is $41 on weekends and holidays, and $31 during the week. We recommend that people call the clubhouse and make a tee time, especially on a weekend or holiday, as we can be very busy.”

Olson noted that Moss Creek has a small pro shop in their clubhouse that offers several golf-related items such as balls, gloves, tees and towels.

“We also have Moss Creek logo items such as hats, polo shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, umbrellas and other items,” Pam said.

Moss Creek also has a bar with tasty food.

“During the golf season, we have a fully stocked bar and serve lunch and dinner,” Olson said. “The menu consists of options such as hot dogs, cheeseburgers, chicken strips, wings and breaded shrimp.”

The clubhouse is available for rent for special events such as company parties, bridal or baby showers, birthdays or anniversaries.

“We can offer banquet food for events, which can be customized for the event,” Olson said.

Olson said Moss Creek offers economically priced memberships including youth (18 and under), adult single or adult couple (19 to 61), senior or senior couple (62 and over), and family.

“We also offer regular or weekday-only cart memberships,” Olson said. “We also have an annual members-only tournament called ‘Boss of the Moss.’”

Olson said Moss Creek is truly a family-run business.

“Tony is the course manager running the day-to-day operations, along with his longtime girlfriend, Tara Wildermuth,” Olson said. “They can be seen most evenings and weekends in the clubhouse checking people in, serving drinks at the bar, or preparing and serving food.”

Tara’s daughter, Tori Wildermuth, is the clubhouse manager.

Pam and Julie handle administrative work and can sometimes be found working in the clubhouse.

Olson said amenities at Moss Creek include power and pull carts, club rental, putting and chipping green, and on-course restrooms.
