About LouisvilleWhen you think of Louisville two things come to mind horse racing and hoops. Add golf to the list. The Ville has some pretty impressive tracks and not just for horses. Start with Valhalla Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus design that's home of the 2008 Ryder Cup and 2014 PGA Championship.
Area native Fuzzy Zoeller brings home two great daily-fee courses in Covered Bridge Golf Club (minutes north of Louisville just off I-65) and Champions Pointe Golf Club. Another winner is Heritage Hill Golf Club, a Doug Beach design that opened in 2007. Off the links, everything starts with the Kentucky Derby.
Enjoy the Kentucky Derby Festival the two weeks prior to the Derby in early April, and make sure to visit the Kentucky Derby Museum for the history of Churchill Downs. Also, make sure to check out the Old Louisville historic district, head to Fourth Street for entertainment and nightlife and visit the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, which showcases the world-famous baseball bats.
Speaking of sports, the University of Louisville is home to many great college sports teams, including basketball. No matter what you do in Louisville, it's a sure bet that you'll have a good time.
