The Fort Golf Course is part of a major redevelopment that occurred following the closing of a military base in 1996. Now, a place that was bustling with soldiers during World War I and World War II instead plays host to hikers, bikers and golfers. This incredible 1,700-acre complex is unusually hilly for central Indiana. The Fort showcases the best of what Indiana golf has to offer. Since opening in 1997, The Fort has been ranked annually by national golf publications as a top 10 in the state of Indiana. Pete Dye took this 238-acre natural setting and created an 18-hole championship layout that is both beautiful and challenging.

Only Indianapolis could combine the grandeur and excitement of auto racing with the serene, natural beauty of a championship golf course. To call Brickyard Crossing a unique golf experience doesn’t do justice to this Pete Dye designed course that includes a four-hole stretch inside the legendary, century-old Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As home to the two largest single-day sporting events in the world, the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400, this is a location used to excitement. While the golf might pale in comparison to taking a turn at over 200 mph in an Indy car, it is nonetheless quite a thrill to play on this hallowed ground.
