Awards and Recognition

Sand Creek has been honored with many awards including the “Best of Golf” award at the 1996 US Open at Oakland Hills in Bloomfield Michigan.  The award was presented by Links Magazine and Audubon International to recognize Sand Creek’s achievements in natural resource preservation and wildlife conservation.  Sand Creek was the first course in the state of Indiana to become fully certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System by Audubon International and The United States Golf Association.

Sand Creek Country Club was voted as The Best Golf Course and The Best Club for Golf Outings in 2010 by the readers of NW Indiana Business Quarterly, The Times and Shore Magazine.

For 18 years, Sand Creek was the home site of the Northern Amateur, one the world’s premier men’s amateur golf tournaments.  The international championship attracted players from around the world.  The championship was retired in 2002 when Sand Creek directed its efforts in promoting Junior Golf and founded the Northwest Indiana Junior Golf Association. In 2011 the Northern Amateur was re-established at Sand Creek Country Club and look forward to many more successful events in the future.
