My daughter got accepted into a Doctorate program for OT in Marion, Indiana (about an hour north of Indianapolis).  It is about halfway between Indy and Fort Wayne.  So, I plan on going and visiting from time to time.  I know of several solid courses around Indy (I've played Brickyard, Trophy Club, Prairie View and The Fort), but was wondering if there are some pretty decent courses a little further north?  Not really gonna have a chance to venture more than an hour or so away from there but was just wondering.

2nd vote for Rock Hollow.

Meshingomesia in Marion is worth a go while you're there, and has rather low rates. It's a former private track that went public a couple years ago, very classic tight design.  

Not north of Marion, but other choices: Wildcat Creek in Kokomo is solid as well.  Muncie has Players Club, which I'm not a big fan of, but it's the best of the public courses around there. Killbuck is an interesting course north of Anderson - used to be owned by GM for the workers.

Bear Slide and Purgatory are both roughly an hour away from Marion as well, and they are among the best in the Indy area in my opinion.

Walnut Creek & Club Run are just southeast of Marion.  36 holes and the greens are always in great shape.

I would second walnut creek and club run. both courses are a lot of fun and offer a variety for the two courses. Both sit in the woods, but walnut creek is a little more open and plays much longer. Club run is a shotmakers course that is very tight and short. It requires lots of hybrids or long irons off the tee to precise locations to have good angles at the greens. Club run is very tight and short. Both courses can be scored upon in different ways. I like walnut creek better, but it is only by a small margin. I would highly recommend giving both a go if you are in the area.
