U.S. Open

Pinehurst Resort & Country Club (Course No. 2)

Cherokee Golf Course

Louisville, KY Public


Though it’s only nine holes, history buffs will love Cherokee Golf Course, which is one of the oldest municipal courses in the United States (1895). It’s part of a very historic city development, sitting within Cherokee Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the preeminent landscape architect in the world, who boasts Manhattan’s Central Park and many other famous jobs to his credit. Being only nine holes, it’s the perfect add-on to an afternoon itinerary after a few bourbon stops.
