Brickyard Crossing golf course is work of famous designer

SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) – Laura Steele took her Indianapolis 500 coverage to the golf course at the world’s greatest race course. The original Speedway race course was built in 1929 and has undergone several renovations over the years.

The current course layout was designed in the early 1990s by noted golf course designer Pete Dye and became known then as the Brickyard Crossing.

The winners of the Indianapolis 500 get a lifetime membership at the golf course that Dye created.

One of the most famous photos taken at the course was when the Beatles visited in September 1964 when they played at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
