5 Star course in every respect and then some

Brickyard Crossing is a 5 star golf experience in every sense. The conditions were just superb today - resort/country club caliber. Everything I saw or experienced was top quality including the customer service. Lots of people there to help out and very friendly. It’s truly sad to see people with bad attitudes drop the rating of a course like this. And you add in the special experience of playing inside a legendary venue like the Indy Raceway, just special. There was a Ferrari driving course going on the day I played, so they were racing around the inside track during the round, extremely cool! I admit in terms of value it is pricey, at least you get a top quality course and experience for the money. Well worth playing at least once. A real pleasure.

Consistency matters - one of the best

Played on a Friday in Sept, weather nearly perfect. With sunlight getting sparse later in the season, we teed off just barely in time to finish.

Course bears many of Pete Dye's trademark challenges: misdirection off the tee, bunkers and hazards in just the right places and greens are deceptively nuanced to make you consider throwing a putter...

Roger Penske has authorized some changes, things like adding some pot bunkers where there were only normal bunkers before, getting greens more consistent, etc. Nothing dramatic from 2 or 3 years ago. It was a very solid course before, still is now.

I've reviewed this course before, my attitude remains about the same. This is hands down one of the best courses in the Indy area. There may be more "exclusive" places; Indy offers better Pete Dye courses than here. What doesn't happen very often (in Indy) is a top-shelf presentation with top-shelf staff/amenities (esp. when considering a public track).

The course conditions are best-in-class all over the place; the tees and greens fully grassed, no blade out of place. By any measure, the fairways and bunkers are upper echelon material. The rough is Kentucky Bluegrass, long, and no easy place to score from, but at least it's dense, consistent and well understood (versus your average public course which is a crap-shoot). If you score poorly at the BY, it's no one's fault but yours; the course is right there for the taking.

There's a solid reason the Brickyard makes the Best of List for the region. If you've never played, make the jump and come see what a top-shelf facility delivers for public access. It won't disappoint.

Golf and Race cars

The Brickyard golf course is in the best conditions I have ever seen it in the 10+ years of playing it. The only issue some may have is it is cart path only for the rest of this season that may be why it is so nice. Still worth the $130 walking a little extra they had a few race cars running I think it was the Porsche driving experience didn’t mind the small bit of noise. Staff is top notch 5 stars . I hope to play it 1-2 more times before seasons end.

Cart path only

Course was cart part only, I was never fore warned of this . Evidently it has been cart path only all summer.
I am better off calling the courses my self rather than using Golf Now!

Indy Golf Trip #2

I played the Brickyard Crossing with two other friends on 09/01/21. Very cool Pete Dye designed course. The greens rolled true and had a decent pace to them. Some of the greens had huge breaks if you were on the wrong side of the cup but were very fair otherwise. The course was in excellent shape. The rough was high enough where you could find your ball, but you still wished you were in the fairway. There are four holes inside The Indianapolis Speedway. Which was pretty cool because on that day we were playing, they were doing some sort of time trails. You can’t see the cars, but you could hear them throughout the whole course. I think it is a very fair course if you play the correct tees. The staff was extremely nice and professional. I would definitely play there again.

Amazing Experience

First time for my Dad and 2 friends playing; my Dad has never been on property before (drove in from Cincinnati). I was blown away with the upgrades and the attention to detail around the golf course; evident that Mr. Penske has invested in the course and the staff across the board made the day very special. Golf course was immaculate and the attention to detail on the course with the views/experience of being in/around the iconic IMS will make it hard to play anywhere else. So worth the price of admission; gotta try the Kiss The Bricks slushy drink!!! Thank you all for an absolutely amazing day!

Awesome!

What a great experience! I would highly recommend this Pete Dye experience if you’re ever in Indianapolis.
Driving under the track of the motor speedway while cars are flying by was very cool.

One of the best courses in Indiana

If you haven't played here, you should. I know the green fee is high, but it is definitely worth it. You play 6 holes outside the racing track, 4 holes inside, and come back out and play remaining 7 holes. Excellent layout and condition, I think this course is much better than many of private courses.

Very nice course and in excellent condition. Single digit handicap and blue tees were appropriate. Course played a bit longer due to recent rain. Initially thought the premium price was the novelty of having 4 holes inside the racetrack however I was impressed with the layout and condition. Added bonus was Ferrari day and was able to get some nice videos or the cars on the track. Only negative was the “Rider fee” of $25 assessed for my non golfing son who accompanied me.

No place like home!

Whenever I’m back visiting from L.A. I play here. From the moment I got out of my car and a golf cart was driven, I thought, “that’s first class”…the little things. Everyone I encountered was friendly and helpful. The course was in excellent shape. Cart path only that morning but I usually walk so didn’t mind that.. Looking forward to playing again my next visit!

Indys top course

The course is in fantastic shape. Greens are a little firm but roll perfect. The only complaint is I played this course twice in the last week and it’s cart path only only because they laid down a bunch of sod along the cart paths looks great but not much fun walking to your ball all day. The rough is super lush bring some extra balls if easily loose a few in it since you can’t drive to it Overall still glad I played and may play again soon long as it’s not Cary path only.

Halfway House Rudeness

Was told halfway house would be open at the turn. It wasn’t. Went inside for a moment to confirm it was closed. Upon coming outside after discovering it was closed, I was greeted by a very rude woman who clearly had a bad day. In any event, was treated very rudely by her. Truly unacceptable when you’re paying $130 for a round of golf.

The course played great however it is cart path only right now while they let the new cart paths and sodding set it. This made pace of play much slower. I do hope they get these things fixed as everyone else I came in contact with there was very friendly and the course is beautiful.
