The Trophy Club
7,317 yards, par 72; Greens fee: $45-$60
Trophy is known for its big bumpy greens, so your putter needs to be hotter than Bobby Knight after a bad call.
6,994 yards, par 72; Greens fee: $90
($70 for Brickyard Crossing Resort guests)
This scenic track has four holes routed inside the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Fairway mounds and uneven lies lead to lots of wrecks here.

North course: 3,678 yards, par 36
Greens fee: $65-$75
The Robert Trent Jones-designed North and West nines have the kind of hardwood hoops-loving golfers hate.plenty of trees. Rees Jones added the more open East in 1995, which has gaping bunkers and large, sloping greens.

7,041 yards, par 71; Greens fee: $45-$55
The namesake Bear Slide Creek dribbles artfully through the back nine on this track, which sports more personalities than Dennis Rodman.
