This course = buckets

Pete Dye with another excellent course.
A lot to like about this one. Well maintained, great layout, greens roll true, and some really beautiful holes tucked away in the hills of Fort Bend State Park.
What this course lacks in water hazards, it makes up for with tough, narrow fairways that you MUST hit. Don’t be afraid to club down and use your fairway finder, you’ll be grateful. Driver isn’t always the best play off the tee. Holes 4-6 are a great stretch and challenge you with different tiers from tee to fairway and fairway to green. Hole 18 is a beautiful finisher.
Only negatives are that it can be a bit pricey on the weekend or prime hours. But if you can find a hot deal for under $50, snatch it and run.

Slipping

While still a very nice layout, The Fort seems to be losing something. Several of the greens were in rough shape. Several foursomes were let out just in front of us at the turn. Still a nice tough course but no longer feels premium. Staff was very friendly.

Great day of golf

Enjoyed my round at The Fort, today. Paired up with 3 good guys, including a volunteer worker of the course named Mike, that made the round enjoyable. The course conditions could have been a little better with a few of the greens being a bit beat up. The weather was sunny with a 2-3 club wind which made the course very challenging. All things considered, the course is one one the best options in Indy and I will continue to play.

Great course

Most tee-boxes, fairways, greens, and traps were in great shape. The greens held and were fast and smooth (except for ballmarks some people didn’t repair). Although a few greens had some large dead spots. We just moved our ball over to avoid them. Traps had good sand in them, but we had to rake some of them and place our ball. Always loved the layout with a lot of variety in the hole designs.

Nice layout

Nice track / could use more maintenance. Cancerous brown spots on the greens today but an otherwise beautiful place to swing the club! Bunkers had weeds - if unplayable, it should be marked as such (see image). Loads of potential to be great!

Snail slow

The pace of play at this course is awful! They make you play in a 4-some and it takes forever as a result. It’s a pretentious course...it’s a city course that makes like a destination resort course. There are no yardage makers because they want you to buy the book. Lastly...for how nice they THINK this course is...it isn’t. There are divots all over the fairways. The greens are in poor shape. And...the bunkers need sand. On the plus side...it’s a pretty course. Nice layout and scenery. Ever now and then that is worth the glacial pace of play and average condition.

Slow Play

4 Hours and 40 minutes. Saw 3 rangers and no one did anything. The course is tight in spots heavy trees on both sides. Players constantly looking for balls, the rangers know which holes are the culprits and should set up so they can assist in groups finding their balls so play keeps moving. Instead driving around cart paths smiling and saying have a great day.

Great Layout

I try to play The Fort once or twice a year. It is a really enjoyable layout and the course is typically in good shape. The holes are memorable. There are plenty of tee options depending upon your skill level.

This unfortunately was a five hour round with a wait on every tee. I did see a ranger a few times, but the round didn't speed up much. Only other feedback is the greens usually are soft, so plenty of ball marks. With that being said, the greens rolled very well. I will be back and encourage others to check it out.
