About Fort Golf Course Resort

The Fort Golf Course Resort was created in 1996 from Fort Benjamin Harrison, once a key U.S. Army post. The redeveloped military base has become a popular 1,700-acre state park with hills galore for hikers, bikers and golfers. Owned and operated by the State of Indiana, the 7,148-yard Pete Dye design features tree-lined fairways and Dye’s penchant for tough and interesting holes. The Fort Harrison Inn, a limestone structure built in the 1940s, offers 27 rooms and suites and the Garrison Restaurant. The Harrison House (seven more rooms and suites) and four Officer Homes are also available for overnight stays.

Poor service

The course was in good condition. Playing pace was terrible and had to wait almost at every tee. The staff member in the clubhouse was very arrogant.

I love the fact that you are not in someone’s backyard- and what you see is what you get- no “trick” holes

Relaxing evening of golf

Played with my husband and were paired with 2 other guys that were very nice and we had a great round of 18 holes. No waiting for people in front of us and no one pushing us from behind. The sand traps were wet and not raked was our only complaint.

Possibly overrated

Overall good course but in my opinion its overrated. Pace was great on a friday morning. The plethora of bunkers were in absolutely terrible shape. At some point everyone ends up in one and it really ruins your game to hit off concrete.
This course has a great deal of restrictions on cart and feels like very few areas you can drive your cart and the cart signs are very far back from the green leading to slower play. No GPS on carts but they are fast carts.

Great course to come back home to!

I have not been home in 10 years, but this course mad me glad I came home! I live in florida with flat level courses for the most part. this course was full of hills ravines and fun and challenging to play. Next time I'm in town definitely will play here again. Got to pickup the birdies I left on the course!!!

Better shape than some are saying

We had some friends that said it was in rough shape, but for us it was in great shape. Greens were fast but fair and the course was well manicured.

Perfect evening for a round of golf

We had a great time. We just had 2 of us and their were 3-somes in front of us that were a bit slow. It turned out it was the 3 some 2 in front of us that was so slow. The 3 some in front of us went around them at the end of the 1st 9 and we went around them at hole 16.

A fantastic course

Unquestionably, The Fort is one of the top courses in the Indy area. A great layout that was in fantastic shape. The greens were excellent, large but with a lot of slope and extremely quick. Pete Dye did a redesign and you can tell as it was quite challenging to play.

The course had a hole map at each tee box with a suggestion as to how to play it. Lots of tee choices and the fairways were nice and tight to play off. Some were quite wide and simple to hit, but others required accurate tee shots. Also there is no water in play, which I liked.

One knock is that the pace of play dragged as we waited on every shot. One reason is that the course was PACKED, which probably speaks to the quality of the course. However, a secondary factor might be that the course is very difficult and precise shots need to be pulled off on a steady basis. The other thing that was a bit of a downer is that our cart was pretty beat up. The wind shield was broken and the cart looked scuffed and tired.

Go play The Fort as you won’t be disappointed!

The Fort in Indianapolis is too costly for most golfers, great layout, but as they say, it's not for everyone.
