Once a key U.S. Army post, Fort Benjamin Harrison is now home to an Indiana State Park and a Pete Dye masterpiece. The Fort Golf Course is part of a major redevelopment that occurred following the closing of the military base in 1996. Now, a place that was bustling with soldiers during World War I and World War II instead plays host to hikers, bikers and golfers. This incredible, 1,700-acre complex is unusually hilly for central Indiana. The Fort offers rolling terrain and breathtaking views that are sure to delight any golfer.
The Fort Golf Course showcases the best of what Indiana golf has to offer. Since opening in 1997, The Fort has been considered one of Indiana's finest public courses and is ranked annually by national golf publications as a top ten in the state. Pete Dye took this 238-acre natural setting and created an 18-hole championship layout that is both beautiful and challenging. Owned and operated by the State of Indiana, the 7,148-yard, par 72 design features tree lined fairways, rolling hills and the Dye trademark undulating greens. With multiple tees ranging from 5,045 to 7,148 yards, golfers of all skill levels will face the challenge they desire. In addition to the outstanding golf course, The Fort offers top quality practice facilities, golf instruction, a fully stocked golf shop, The Garrison Restaurant, The Bunker Grill and on-site lodging.
The Fort is one of seven courses included on the Pete Dye Golf Trail.
