Player-Friendly & Fun

Alongside the Ohio River and in the shadows of the Sherman Minton Bridge – Shawnee Golf Course has long been known as one of Louisville’s most “player-friendly” golf courses. The par-70 layout plays just over 6,400 from the back tees and offers low handicap players the chance to “go-low” when the driver is dialed in. Designed by Alex McKay, the golf course is ideal for the beginner – regardless of your handicap… all players will appreciate a well-conditioned golf course with plush Bermuda tees and fairways and silky-smooth Bentgrass greens.

“In line with what you’ve been hearing from the PGA of America and Jack Nicklaus about Golf 2.0 and making golf more fun, we’re 100% onboard. In a world of 7,000 yard golf courses, we think players enjoy Shawnee’s more manageable distances and friendly layout. First and foremost, golf should be fun!”
said head professional, Craig Heibert.

It was here that Louisville golf legend Jodie Mudd groomed his game as a junior and we hope to mentor Jefferson County’s next great champion.

Sherman Minton Bridge is Back!

Shawnee Golf Course has long been easily accessible for both Louisville area and Southern Indiana golfers – that is until the Sherman Minton Bridge closed. Good news! In March 2012 – the Sherman Minton Bridge will reopen! Welcome back Indiana!
