Belterra Casino Resort

Florence, Ind.

Handed a dead-flat cornfield in southeast Indiana bisected by a two-lane highway, Tom Fazio reached deep into his bag of tricks to manufacture a delightful course for this resort, which is home to a riverboat casino patterned after the region’s historic paddle-wheelers. After moving 1.2 million cubic yards of dirt to create 65 feet of elevation change and also mimic a ridge on the Kentucky side of the river, Fazio used man-made berms, dry-laid rock walls, and 2,200 transplanted native trees to frame his handiwork. Belterra—“beautiful land” in Portuguese—features plush fairways, smooth greens, and dense bluegrass rough.
