Valhalla Golf Club



University of Louisville Golf Club

Simpsonville, KY Private

Overview

Formerly known as The Cardinal Club, the University of Louisville Golf Club is an appealing, walkable layout in a pastoral setting sprawled along gentle mounds despite its location adjacent to a major interstate. Ponds, small lakes, and streams are used to create natural hazards and do not appear contrived or out of place. While most of the course is open, several holes are routed through woody areas and provide moments of solitary escape and tranquility before spilling out onto open land once again. Landing areas are fairly wide but thick rough, copious water, dense native grass areas and strategically placed overhanging trees will punish errant tee shots.
