Brickyard Crossing Golf Course: A Unique Golfing Facility and Hotel in Speedway

Originally called the Speedway Golf Course at its founding back in 1929, the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course is located on the wide grounds of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

For several years after its inception, this facility hosted a special PGA Tour called the 500 Festival Open Invitation. Its dates were planned to coincide with those of the famous Indianapolis 500-mile race in Speedway, the world-famous suburb on the west edge of Indianapolis, in Central Indiana.

After a renovations closure of a few years, the course reopened as a Pete Dye-designed championship golf course called the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course. This excellent golfing venue features an infield lake, fourteen holes outside the infield of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and four holes that are actually inside its oval.

Also frequently known as the “course of champions, the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course is kept immaculate and tournament ready. It has, indeed, hosted many impressive tournaments and professional golfers such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Billy Casper and Gary Player.

For years, the Brickyard Crossing golf Resort & Inn, adjacent to the major Speedway attractions, the Hall of Fame Museum and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, offered a pleasant, two-story Speedway hotel with all the amenities, for ultimate convenience and comfort to Speedway visitors. Though this Speedway landmark has been razed, its venerable memory lives on, and rumor has it there are plans to rebuild a bigger and better version.
