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.

First Time Playing

Good experience

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.
