Jack Nicklaus created the course at the members-only Valhalla Golf Club in the mid-Eighties on nearly five hundred acres of gently hilly Kentucky land. The aim was to attract first-rank tournaments, and Nicklaus delivered: the club has been the site of three PGA Championships, two PGA Seniors and a Ryder Cup. Further work a decade after the course opened has tightened up what was already signature Jack—thus there are bent, elevated greens, abundant water, numerous fade shots and limited bunkering. The signature hole is the 13th, nicknamed The Island, a 355-yard par 4 with a well defended landing area in front of a green that is raised and nearly peninsular. Average players will manage since there are numerous tee positions and no obscured shots to make. The staff is thoroughly professional, so the maintenance is superb and the clubhouse is relaxed. Not to be missed by players in the Louisville area.

Really enjoyed the challenge. Front nine is wide open yet protected by ample heather. If you stray off the fairway you will likely not get to the greens in regulation. The back nine is tree lined and has some lovely shaped holes. The #18th is a gem with a unique horseshoe shaped green. They have hosted major championships and deservingly so!
