Brickyard Crossing, is a Resort, 18 hole golf course located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Brickyard Crossing first opened for play in 1993. The course was designed by Pete Dye.
The course was built alongside, as well as inside, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The course has mounded fairways, so expect many uneven lies. Little Eagle Creek comes into play on eight holes, and a pond comes into play on hole #10, a 353-yard, par 4.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 7,180 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5,038 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 12, a par-5 that plays to 581 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 7, a par-3 that plays to 181 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 8, a 464-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 14, a 311 yard par-4.

This is sort of a novelty course like Pebble Beach. The novelty of playing 4 holes "inside" the Indianapolis 500 racetrack. You get a perspective of how 260,000 fans fit in the bleacher seats. Without that, it was just another nice, well taken care of, golf course. Pete Dye did a great job of routing this course with the creek running throughout the course. As for the price, I thought $90.00 was a little steep, especially for seniors (the backbone for weekday golf). It is definitely a good test for all golfers with 4 sets of tees. Fairways, greens & sandtraps were in good shape for Sept. I don't think I'll be back, but it's a course to play once in your lifetime. If you haven't been to the Speedway before, take in the Museum and the ride around the track ($5.00 each). Nothing special in the pro shop, but the cart guy was extremely friendly & the ranger was very helpful.
