Public Course Top Ten Indiana Courses - Golf Digest Best Places To Take A Client Tees, Fairways - Greens - Ratings (handicap/slope) Greens Fee: 18 Holes - $90; Resort Rate - $70 Gold 74.5/137 Blue 71.7/130 White 68.4/122

Caddie's Summary: From amenities to the seventh to tenth tees which are inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway track, we see why this is rated as one of the best places to take a client. The course is in wonderful condition and plays well to all handicappers. At 6994 (Gold tees), it is not overly-long yet requires some finesse to navigate some of the more difficult holes. A Pete Dye design, the greens are large and swaying with heavy ridges and tight bunkers. The course is a comfortable and brings bunkers and fairway angles into play for long hitters. If your playing well, you can post low scores, but on approximately half of the holes, misses find hazards or very difficult shots. As you navigate the course, it is difficult not to get caught up in the Speedway that is obviously all around the course. But keep your mind on golf, as the many crossing creeks and lakes require strategic play. Note - carts have GPS systems.
