Beautiful Fall Day On The Course

Had a great time golfing The Fort golf course today for the first time. The beautiful fall leaves and deer were a bonus to this hilly, well maintained golf course. If you hit them straight you can score well. If not, you have a lot of trees and ravines to find your ball in.
Would love to play this course again sometime.

Great course, unfriendly staff

Been playing here for years. One of Indy’s best courses, so I’ll continue to play… but the staff has always been very unfriendly and condescending for no reason.

Great course; despite green aeration

The best course in the Indianapolis area. A gem! Green Aeration was the only negative. Rain showers at the end of the fron nine. Had to wait about 30 minutes for it to pass over.

Great Day at The Fort

One of the top courses in Indiana, great design by Pete Dye, course was in great shape! Only wish play was a bit quicker, always spend 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 hours to get in 18, even during week days. Would recommend to anyone to give this course a try.

Indy Golf Trip #3

I played The Fort with two other friends on 09/02/21. Another cool Pete Dye designed course. This is a parkland golf course with some holes that need to be played strategically (#2 & #10). The first time I played it, was almost five years ago to the day. I’m very happy to say that the conditions are still in excellent shape. The greens rolled nice and smooth. The course was in excellent shape from tee to green. The rough was not too high where you could not find you ball. Overall, the course is very fair. The fairways are wide enough where you can be off line with your tee shot and still be in play. I read some previous reviews about the staff being rude and unprofessional, but I can honestly say on the day we were there, the staff was extremely nice and professional. I would definitely play there again, for a third time.

Beautiful Layout, Great Challenge

The Fort golf course is a beautiful course, with many scenic holes - it's literally picture-perfect. It's also a wonderful challenge, with blind t-shots, blind second shots, and some significant carries required. The course is in very good shape, the fairways and greens were well kept, though the bunkers could use some TLC; COVID-times being what they are, it's of little consequence, and did not significantly impact our round. The facilities are great, the staff very friendly and helpful; the Starter, Ivan, was very cordial and shared a lot of details to make our day a great one - and it was!

The Fort is well guarded

This was my third time playing The Fort and I must say the conditions were not as good as I remember. The bunkers were very sub-par and the greens were surprisingly slower than what I expected. But for the most part the course played nice. Could have used a breeze to combat the sweltering hot conditions that made the day miserable. I couldn't wait for the round to be over. I did however birdie two of the final three holes and three putted #17 from 85 feet. So I left on some good vibes.

Another great round at The Fort

$85 for 18 w cart, but with it. Played in 4 hr 10 min at a good pace. One green had aeration, but other than that course was great condition even with all the recent rain. Great Sunday morning round.
