Did you know?

The rumoured shutdown of Fort Benjamin Harrison Military Reservation became a reality in 1991. In 1995 the U.S. Department of the Interior approved the State of Indiana's request to convert 1700 of the 2500-acre former military post into a state park and nature preserve. Included in the planning for the state park was the inclusion of a golf course, which was then aptly named The Fort.

PETE DYE GOLF TRAIL: Referred to by many as the father of modern golf course architecture, Pete Dye has made an indelible mark on the game of golf. After carefully studying golf courses in the British Isles, Dye honed his craft in Indiana, before going on to produce a raft of stunning designs, including TPC Sawgrass, Whistling Straits and Harbor Town. Dye designs, created by Pete, his wife Alice and their family, now span the globe. Established in 2011 to showcase seven of the great man's courses in Indiana, the Pete Dye Golf Trail comprises: Birck Boilermaker (Kampen course), Brickyard Crossing, French Lick (Pete Dye course), Maple Creek, Mystic Hills, Plum Creek and The Fort.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
