124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2

Nevel Meade Golf Course

Prospect, KY Public


A rare links-inspired layout in a state of mostly parkland courses, Nevel Meade was built atop highlands in the greater Louisville metropolitan area. This is one of the earliest courses in the portfolio of Steve Smyers, an accomplished architect who was a former associate under Ron Garl. Some of Smyers’ other notable designs include Tampa’s Old Memorial, Maridoe Golf Club outside Dallas, LochenHeath in Traverse City, Mich and the now-defunct Wolf Run in Zionville, Ind., a former member of our America's Second 100 Greatest courses.
