This course is considered by knowledgeable golfers to be one of the finest public golf facilities in southern Indiana. The back and front nines are notably different in appearance. The front nine holes are driver-friendly with large, well-bunkered greens. Even if you drive it well here, you still must avoid some well-placed hazards. The back nine holes are more indicative of the local landscape. While the fairways are tree lined, your approach shot will be the challenge on this side, with the hilly terrain making a level lie a rarity. The signature hole is #18, a 206-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot over water to a well-bunkered green.

|Golf Digest rated Christmas Lake GC as a four-star course. A few years ago it was rated one of Indiana's most challenging public courses. Among local golfers it has been well known that the rough and greens were in need of work. Extensive renovation has been completed over the past two years to remedy this. Until now carts had to stay on paths or fairways at all times. The front nine winds through Christmas Lake Village, a huge gated housing community. The back nine climbs up and down forested terrain where it is not atypical to have a family of deer attempting to play through your foursome. America's first theme park, Holiday World, is only two miles away.|
