Did you fore-get about that new golf venue that’s coming to Indy’s south side? Well, we’re swinging by to let you know that the project that began almost a year ago officially opens on Fri., Aug 5.

⛳ What is it?

Back 9 is a new 58,500-sqft golf + entertainment venue along the banks of the White River complete with 75 golf bays, a 350-person music pavilion, outdoor beer garden, restaurant, meeting rooms, and a game area. Need some caffeine? Brownsburg’s Best Friends Coffee & Bagels is also opening up its first Indianapolis location at Back 9.

🏌️How to play

Bring the whole crew. To play, you’ll choose a Tee Bay (for up to eight players) or a T-Suite (for up to 25 players).

Then you can choose from several different games:

  • Driving Range | This one is best for warming up + practicing your swings.
  • Bullseye | A rapid fire game where each player has five chances to score as many points as they can on three targets.
  • Longest Drive | Like the name implies, see who has the longest drive in your group with five shots each.
  • Twenty One | Fuse a game of golf + cards by hitting targets to collect the card. Play a full hand, then hand it off to the next player. The closest to 21 points wins.
  • Golf Courses | Virtually tee up at one of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses.

Not a golfer? The venue will have something for everyone, from live music to business meetings, parties, and private events.

Pro tip: If you think you’ll be hanging out at Back 9 often, check out its membership options with added benefits like discounts on food + beverages, priority access to golfing bays, and early access to events and live music.

📍1415 Drover St.

Sunday-Thursday 10 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday + Saturday: 10 a.m.-1 a.m.
