The Indiana Department of Tourism Development has relaunched the statewide Pete Dye Golf Trail. The initiative, which is a salute to Carmel resident and world-renowned golf course designer Pete Dye, involves seven courses in Indianapolis, West Lafayette, Culver and French Lick. The IOTD will market and manage the trail. It now includes the Ackerman-Allen Course, part of the the Birck-Boilermaker Golf Complex in West Lafayette.
Indiana Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch says "beautiful golf courses span across our entire nation. Rather uniquely, Indiana is known for having some of the most exclusive golfing experiences, and now that the Indiana Office of Tourism Development has taken charge of the trail, we can continue to attract visitors to these courses."
The IOTD says it will include these destinations as a key part of its group travel marketing efforts in an attempt to gain more of the $70 billion U.S. golf travel industry.
Courses on the trail include: the Ackerman-Allen Course in West Lafayette, Brickyard Crossing in Indianapolis, The Fort Golf Resort in Indianapolis, Kampen Golf Course in West Lafayette, Maple Creek Golf and Country Club in Indianapolis, Mystic Hills Golf Club & Lodge in Culver and The Pete Dye Course at French Lick.
