The Indianapolis 500, held on May 30th each year, is known worldwide as the greatest spectacle in racing and having grown up in Indiana, it was a larger-than-life event. Every year the Speedway hosts the Indy 500, NASCAR, Moto GP, and what might amaze you, golfers.

Located along the track’s backstretch is a Pete Dye-designed golf course featuring 14 holes on the outside of the track and four breathtaking holes situated on the track’s infield. Whether you are a race fan or not, the golf course is a one-of-a-kind gem that is a must for any golfer.

The undulating, elevated greens are as fast as some cars that travel around it. Make sure to bring your camera for an occasional glimpse of a race car, but for sure, you will need it for some of the great golf holes. My favorite is hole number 7 on the inside of the track, one of the most unique par threes you will play.

Watch this video for a behind-the-scenes tour of this excellent golf facility; I mean race track.
