The Indianapolis Motor Speedway – nicknamed The Brickyard – opened as an automobile racing circuit in 1909 and it’s rather fitting that the highest-capacity sports venue in the world is also home to the world’s oldest major car race, the Indy 500.

The Speedway Golf Course opened for play in 1929 and this 27-hole layout was in use for more than sixty years, with 18 holes located outside the track and 9 inside. A major reconstruction then took place in 1993, when the new course was renamed as Brickyard Crossing.

Pete Dye converted the old layout to an 18-hole championship course, with fourteen holes situated outside the track and four (#7 to #10) positioned inside, next to an infield lake. Measuring almost 7,200 yards from the back tees, this course plays to a par of 72.

The old course hosted nine editions of the 500 Festival Open on the PGA Tour during the 1960s and Mickey Wright won the 500 Ladies Classic on the LPGA Tour when it was held here in 1968. After the redesign, the course was used for the Comfort Classic event on the Champions Tour from 1994 to 2000.

Professional women’s golf returned to the course in 2017 with the Indy Women in Tech Championship on the LPGA Tour. For spectating purposes, the course is re-sequenced for this event, with the front nine comprising holes 11 to 18 then hole 1 and the back nine consisting of holes 2 to 10, which allows the infield holes to be played as the four finishing holes.

Even though 4 holes are inside the track, which is awesome, it is not a gimmick course. It is the real deal. The thick thick grass around the greens seems to be a common phenomenon for Donald Ross, Brick is not exception.

This is a Pete Dye route, but I would argue Ross had as much an influence on Dye as anyone. Hmm. Now I'm questioning myself. Quite a few of those Golden Agers had a hand in creating Dye!
