Occupying an area of around 36,000 square miles, the Hoosier State of Indiana lies in the Midwest region of the United States with Indianapolis designated as both its capital and largest city.
The Indiana Golf Association was founded in 1900, followed twenty one years later by the Indiana Women’s Golf Association, and both governing bodies look after the interests of male and female golfers in 285 clubs, from Knollwood Country Club in the north to The Rustic in the south of the state. Rather unusually, the Indiana Section PGA joined forces with the Indiana Golf Association in 1972 to become IGA-PGA, one of the few joint amateur and professional golf organisations in the United States.
Victoria National and Crooked Stick are nationally ranked top tracks within the state of Indiana. The former was laid out within an abandoned coal mine by Tom Fazio in 1998 whilst the latter, a Pete Dye design from 1967, has hosted a number of major competitions including the 1991 PGA Championship, the 1993 US Women’s Open, the 2005 Solheim Cup and the 2009 US Senior Open. The old Donald Ross and new Pete Dye courses at the French Lick Resort are also worthy of mention. Opened ninety years apart, they offer engaging games of golf at a fabulous 45-hole facility.
