Top 20 courses in Indiana according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

The home of Hoosiers and basketball legend John Wooden also has a strong golf reputation. Indiana is the birthplace and home of Pete Dye, who has certainly had an influence on the state's golf scene. If you ever find yourself passing through in the "Crossroads of America" be sure your clubs are in the trunk.

Golfers in the state have been smitten with the courses. Two courses, Royal Hylands and The Trophy Club, earned strong enough ratings in 2015 to make Golf Advisor's top 50 courses in the U.S., while several others just missed being included. From a ratings perspective, the top 10 golf courses in Indiana stack up favorably with just about every other Northern state, and part of it is likely a result of the bargains to be had on green fees, as well as friendly service in the shop.

The state's top 20 features courses around Indianapolis and the Indiana side of Louisville, plus more remote casino and resort courses. Yes, there is a Dye presence on this list too. You can click on each course to view detailed information on the course, from architect to category ratings and reviews.
