Thank you dhiner as we appreciate your 4-star rating and review. It is great to see you had an enjoyable time on the course and we hope you join us for another round soon here at The Fort Golf Resort in Indianapolis, IN.
Great layout, love Pete Dye designed courses
First time to play the course, Great layout.
It was very wet and cart path only.
Played from the white tees just under 6200yds, I love Pete Dye designed courses and tee yardages.
Will definitely play this course many more times but from the blue tees next time.

The Fort is our favorite!
We love to play this course. Great layout, and the changes in elevation make it unique in the Indianapolis area.
Bad course management
Course looks great but bad course management. Their tee times are booked to close and the rangers do not oversee the course and the speed of play. We were held up the whole front 9. We reached 10 and there was someone driving to the green, a group in the fairway, a group on the tee box, and then us. Horrible course management. There was a outting 9 holes a head of us. Was told only 1 group ahead of us. Come to find out the outting guys started up again ahead of us to play more. Horrible course management. Played in July and almost the exact same thing at 10 minus the outting. A shame since it’s a nice course, at a high price, but the management does not know how to run the course properly. New management could make the course superb if it was managed properly on and off the course.
Great price, excellent course!
The Fort is one of the best courses in the Indianapolis area. It was in fantastic shape today. The greens were rolling fast and true. Every aspect of the course was maintained at a high level. I highly recommend playing here, especially when you can get a great rate via GolfNow!
Great Course, Slow Day
The fort is my favorite layout in Indianapolis. I love the rustic feel and the state park being all around you. I like seeing wild life on the course that you generally don't see in the rest of town. The tees were in good shape, the fairways were perfect and the greens had pock marks all over them. I just assume the course gets played to death because we had an afternoon tee time. It took 4.5 hours for the round and nothing was done about pace of play. I will give the course a go no question, but I would like to see rangers helping expedite the round when a single group is holding up the track.
This was a very pleasant experience, even with the slow play. While waiting, it was enjoyable to look at the beautiful views and plants along the way. I found the course to be very "woman friendly ". My husband also enjoyed the course. It had an interesting layout. We weren't used to bent grass greens but they rolled well and we were getting our speed better toward the end. There were some divots in the fairways and a few ball marks on the greens, but the friendliness of the staff made up for that. I hope to play this course again.
Nice Course; Courteous Staff
Hot and humid but a great day for golf on a wonderful course with great people working the desk and as the starter and rangers..
Will play it again.
The Fort Golf Course
Excellent condition ! Best course I’ve played in a while . Great deal with GolfNow . Can’t wait to play it again .
Very interesting course
Playing partners used the blue white tees. Could use a white green tee suggestion as well. Nice golf course!
What a Gem
My favorite public course in Indiana. Outstanding course conditioning. Extremely friendly staff. Very scenic course. Play from the correct tees and this course is challenging but manageable. Select the wrong tees and it will eat your lunch. Very much worth the 2+ hours traveled to play. They offer reasonably priced stay & play packages. Can't wait to return.
Thank you rbachman60 for the fantastic 5-star review of The Fort Golf Resort here in beautiful Indianapolis. We appreciate you taking the time and hope you will let us know if you ever need anything while you are here. Come back and see us again very soon for more of the best golf in town.
The Fort - Indy
Great course but the greens were a bit worn and rough and not up to past standards.
Ball Marks Everywhere
Went around The Fort again today, and continue to hold the same opinion of it - it's a 5-star layout, with 4-star conditions at best. Today I spent half my time on the greens fixing ball marks, as it was almost like putting on the moon. Not sure how anyone in front of me putted with all the unfixed or poorly fixed marks. Lots of the fairways and some fringes were a little ugly and spotty too after the recent rain.
As for the course, the elevation change makes it pretty unique for the area, and it's very challenging, so it's well worth a go. But full freight would feel like a bit of a rip with the present conditions.
Great layout TERRIBLE GREENS
Paid $71 to play Sunday morning 6/24/18. Greens were worse than the $15 American Legion course in my central Indiana hometown! I wouldn't pay $45 to play the fort, with the greens beat to crap like they are now. Beautiful layout with plenty of challenge. For the price, play Bear Slide, Prairie View, or Fox Prarie nearby. Fix the pace of play problem (5 hr round) and the horrendously beat up greens and it's as good of a course as can be found.
Saturday at the Fort
Even though they had rain of 5 inches in the last 48 hours and it was cart path only, the Fort was an excellent round. The greens were in great shape. The round moved along well for being cart path only. As expected the rough was pretty high in some places without being cu for a couple of days. The staff was friendly and helpful as usual.
