Downtown Indianapolis

Indianapolis allows the golf traveler to enjoy challenging and unique courses in an urban destination known as a sports capital. Dating back to the Pan Am Games in the 80s that put Indy on the sports map, the city has hosted more than 400 national and international sporting events, from NCAA Final Fours to Olympic Trials and a Super Bowl.

To catch your home team or alma mater, Indy’s top sports bars rank among the best places to watch a game. The number of screens in Kilroy’s is only outdone by the number of signature drinks showcased on its floor-to-ceiling chalkboard. Scotty’s Brewhouse’s high-energy and encyclopedia-sized menu pairs with a lengthy local beer list. And Mass Ave’s Chatham Tap offers an intimate English pub for futbol fanatics, just to name a few.

Just west of Maple Creek Golf Course is the recently renovated Marriott East, featuring onsite dining options and a wine bar. A variety of hotel and lodging are also available with a 10-minute drive to downtown Indianapolis.
