With over 450 holes of golf, Indianapolis is one of the country’s hotbeds of golf – and there’s still more golf to be played in nearby suburbs like Noblesville and Greenwood. So it’s about time that we revisit the golf courses in Indianapolis featured in TheGolfNexus course directory.
One of the Indianapolis area’s most famous courses – and one of the most unusual anywhere – is Brickyard Crossing. That Pete Dye designed layout is located adjacent to – and inside of – the racetrack of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
On the northwest side of town everybody is welcome at the semi-private Saddlebrook Golf Club. In addition to the “daily fee” option, memberships are offered at two different levels (“Golf Pass” and “Silver Pass”). A little further to the northwest are 36 holes of Pete Dye designed golf at Eagle Creek Golf Club.
In addition to a wide variety of publicly-playable courses, Indianapolis is home to a good selection of private golf and country clubs. Old Oakland Golf Club has been around since 1964 and offers 27 holes for those who choose the golf membership option. Old Oakland is located on the northeast side of town, a few miles outside of I-465.
Beyond the great golf found in Indianapolis proper, a short drive will get you to even more golf options in nearby suburbs. To the north, near Noblesville and Cicero, you’ll find courses like Fox Prairie Golf Course (challenging golfers on some great rolling land since 1970) and Purgatory Golf Club (one of the country’s best public courses, 218 acres of nothing but golf).
