The Fort Golf Resort situated in Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park is a relaxed resort offering straightforward accommodations, buffet dining, a pro shop, and a gym. Since its opening in 1997, The Fort Golf Course is considered to be one of the finest golf courses in Indiana and has been ranked annually as a top 10 in the state by national golf magazines like the Golf Magazine. Located just minutes away from downtown Indianapolis, this beautifully designed golf course has a challenging but fair layout. It showcases the best of what golf has to offer in Indiana and is a fun course for any golfer to play on.
Golfers are constantly impressed by the excellent shape the course is kept in, and the same goes for the practice green, driving range, and chipping area. The fairways, tee boxes, bunkers, roughs, and greens are all wonderful to play on. The busiest time on the course seems to be around 11 o’clock so try to work around it if you want to maintain a steady pace. There are some hilly areas that place several of the holes in a blind spot but there are always marshals on the course who offer good advice on how to play some of the more difficult holes. Private golf lessons by PGA Professional staff are available and the Pro Shop offers a wide range of golf apparel and merchandise for sale.
There is plenty to do besides playing a round of golf. The 1700 acre state park is full of interesting history that includes a former WWII prisoner-of-war camp. Recreational activities include fishing, jogging, walking, and jogging trails, bicycle trails, hayrides, horse trail rides, guided hikes, and picnicking. Knowledgeable naturalists at the nature center are on hand to answer questions and provide interesting talks on the area.
