Indianapolis & Cincinnati Best Golf Courses



Best golf courses around Indianapolis & Cincinnati

Indiana's largest city is home to a number of top-quality public golf courses. Among them is Purgatory, a challenging course with a number of tee selections for different skill levels, and the championship layout at Brickyard Crossing Golf Course, a Pete Dye design whose history dates back to 1929.

Your Cincinnati itinerary may include visits to museums, botanical gardens and parks, but spare a few hours for the top-ranked Balterra Golf Course, a stay-and-play facility with a well-maintained championship layout.

If you're visiting Louisville, the spectacular Sultan's Run Golf Course, whose landscape of verdant parkland and rolling hills has made it sought-after among avid golfers.
