6002 N Post Rd
Indianapolis, IN 46216-1043, United States
Located on the old Fort Benjamin Harrison, it seems appropriate that an Indiana architect (Pete Dye) would be the one to lay out this course, which plays to 7,148 yards (par 72) from the tips and 5,045 yards from the front. This part of 'Fort Ben' is noted for the gorgeous woods and rolling terrain, and is well-regarded amongst golfers in Indiana; many charity and corporate outings take place here.
Given the course's history as an Army post, it is appropriate that military personnel receive reduced greens fees here.

Just make sure you get out early. If you are playing on the weekend and don't get out early it could be a long round

Great Pete Dye layout. Love the course design. Maintenance was a little sub-par, probably due to very dry conditions (partner said it was the worst condition he had seen it in). But overall very nice value for a good course.

Course in good shape. Greens just a little rough from aeration but very quick. All in all well worth $40 green fees.

The Fort is a great golf course outside Indianapolis. Beautiful scenery since this was a Fall season round of golf. No water holes, but plenty of "other issues" that will challenge your game. Highly recommended, might be a bit pricey, but if you find a deal, it is worth playing.

The Good: Excellent Pete Dye and Tim Liddy design just east of Indianapolis is on-site at an old Army base. The Fort proves that a course does not need extravagant water hazards or gimmicks to be a fun place to play as there are minimal water hazards throughout the tree-lined, hilly layout. Spectacular course conditions, a great practice facility, and very nice off-course amenities including excellent lodging accommodations.
The Bad: The service does not match the quality of course. The greens are usually in excellent condition; however they can be so slick that they can be extremely difficult. GPS on the carts would be a nice addition.
The Verdict: For good old-fashioned golf, The Fort is perhaps the best yard-for-yard public facility in the entire state of Indiana. The course conditions and overall golf experience are rivaled by very few. Make sure that you bring a lot of balls as the trees seem to gobble them up.
Best Hole: The Par 3 5th hole is arguably the best Par 3 in the entire state of Indiana. You must avoid the treacherous bunker on the right as it has a 4-5 foot lip that turns a good front nine into a nightmare.

Love to play this course. It's a little pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Absolutely a beautiful course, and probably my favorite! Expensive? Yes! It's the type of course I aim to play twice a year. Have played here several times and haven't experienced the issues cknox1979 has. Usually have 2 groups in front of you at the 1st tee box, but once they start it's been steady for me. Not the most challenging of courses, but definitely great layout and very well manicured.

What a great layout, and so well-manicured. However, I can not enjoy a 6-hour round of golf. I have played there at 1 p.m. on a Tuesday, as a 2-some, and it took us 6 hours. And on the 1st tee, there were 2 other groups who were given our identical tee time!!! I will never pay to play there again.
