SHAWNEE GOLF COURSE

460 Northwestern Pkwy. Louisville, KY 502-776-9389

NOTES:

TEE TO GREEN CONDITION 6-7-06

This course is open to the public. Shawnee is part of the Louisville Park system. They have a driving range and a nice practice facility with proper targets. No caddies. You may walk if you care to. Malt beverages are available. There are some homes on the course.
Shawnee has Bermuda tees and fairways that lead to small and medium sized, bent grass greens with moderate undulation. Sand, water and mature trees add to course difficulty. Some holes run beside the Ohio River.
Shawnee hosted the 1932 National Public Links tournament. A few years ago the course was redesigned, adding length and modernizing some greens. The original course opened in 1926. Designed by Ben Whiry.
6,425 yard, 18 hole par 70

...And of course, they have other tees to accommodate other levels of play.

Respectable par 70 layout. Nice course to walk at a bargain price. Bunkers were much better than any of the other Metro Park courses we've played this year. Overall, best conditions of any of the Metro Park courses we've played. Greens were not bad and could get better rating from me if they were not so shaggy.
$11 on the weekdays to walk.
If you are looking for a course in this price range, you won't find many better than Shawnee.
