INDIANAPOLIS: THE CENTER OF IT ALL IS RAISING THE GAME

Indianapolis is an elite American sports destination. Known as the "Racing Capital of the World," its motorsports history is legendary. Each year the Indianapolis Motor Speedway plays host to the two largest single-day sporting events in the world, the century-old Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR's Brickyard 400, along with the Red Bull Indianapolis GP. As home to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) headquarters, the city has hosted more Men and Women's NCAA Final Four Basketball Tournaments than any city in America. Indianapolis is home to the NBA's Indiana Pacers and the NFL's Indianapolis Colts. As a tribute to Indianapolis' ability to host incredible sporting events, the NFL awarded the city the prestigious 2012 NFL Super Bowl (only the third cold-weather city to ever be awarded the game). The capital city of Indiana is one of the fastest growing in the Midwest, and for good reason. The vibrant and compact downtown allows visitors and residents to easily walk from top-shelf hotels to hundreds of restaurants, attractions and shopping outlets.

When it comes to golf, the city delivers a blend of unique courses at surprisingly affordable pricing. As home to master course architect Pete Dye, Indianapolis boasts more of his designs than any place on the planet. A few of his more notable courses include Brickyard Crossing, located on the grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Voted one of America's Top 100 Public Golf Courses by Golf Digest and Golf Week, this course features four holes that are actually located inside the racetrack. Another Dye gem is The Fort Golf Course, located on 238 acres of tree-lined fairways, rolling hills and the Dye trademark undulating greens.

Indianapolis allows the golf traveler to enjoy challenging and unique courses while enjoying a distinctly urban experience.
