The Fort Golf Course
Greens and bunkers
Course is quite nice and had some spectacular views. Pace of play was good.
The bunkers were not level or recently raked and the greens have great potential if not for so many divot marks.

A must play!
This course is fantastic, period! One thing, if you do not hit the ball straight here you can pay for it on your scorecard. The layout is amazing. I have played it for the last three years when I go out to Indy for the Moto GP race in August. I will be there again in 2015. If you are in the area you really want to play this course. I have been to Myrtle Beach and played probably close to 60 or so of there top rated courses and The Fort is in my top three I have ever played in my life, go play!

Greens need attention
A beautiful course. Always love the layout. The greens were pretty beat up and need some attention. Not worth 75 bucks with those greens.

The Fort Golf Course
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, great service, and very nice off-course amenities including excellent lodging accommodations.
The Bad: The practice facility 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.

course is not for beginners
very good course lots of trees and bunkers, huge 3 or 4 club greens , decent speed not lightning. about 8 on stimp , need high iron game for well bunkered greens, need good overall sand game too. cant take carts in parking lot = pain but not a deal breaker.

The Fort is excellent.
This course is a great challenge for any golfer. The greens were very tricky and the course has a elevation changes with rolling hills through the trees. Fair and open landing areas for driving from the tee box, but all greens seems to be a bit elevated. It was in great condition and the price after 4PM was OK, the course is too pricey before that time slot. It was beautiful and a lovely "park like atmosphere". No houses on the entire course.

The course has generous fairways and an intermediate cut of rough. I was only in the tall rough a couple of times but drew good enough lies to still advance the ball to the green. Greens were receptive and rolled beautifully. Play the correct tees and it's a very enjoyable course and definitely worth the money.
