Golfers Can 'Pay The Temp' As Brickyard Crossing Opens March 16

The highly acclaimed Brickyard Crossing Golf Course will open for the 2012 season Friday, March 16 – St. Patrick’s Day Eve – and players will receive a great greens fee value throughout March with the “Pay the Temperature” promotion.

The special pricing is simple: The air temperature at a player’s arrival time is their greens fee. If it’s 60 degrees Fahrenheit, a golfer pays $60. Many St. Patrick’s Day-themed contests and prizes will be offered at the golf course March 16-17, and tee times are available starting daily at 8 a.m. This promotion is available through Saturday, March 31.

The greens fee for the 2012 season will remain $90 per player beginning April 1, which includes a 2012 E-Z-Go cart equipped with a GPS system.

Tee times can be made by calling (317) 492-6417 or online at www.brickyardcrossing.com. Tee times may be made 30 days in advance and must be secured with a major credit card.

Opening day also will mark the beginning of the 2012 season at the Brickyard Crossing Restaurant, featuring a special Irish Buffet for $9.99 on Friday, March 16 and St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday, March 17. In addition, CIBUS, LLC has created a new menu and décor at the Brickyard Crossing Golf Course & Conference Center.

Dining hours will be 11 a.m.-8 p.m., March 16-17. The Brickyard Crossing Restaurant also features a newly renovated full bar with three flat-screen televisions, a full dining menu offered seven days a week and a brunch buffet every Sunday.
