Valhalla GC

Designer: Brandon Pugh

Course Description:

Valhalla GC now published! This is an RCR of the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville KY. Here's a little back story: Mr. Gahm and his three sons - Walt, Gordy and Phil - commissioned Jack Nicklaus to build a private golf facility on 486 acres of rolling Kentucky terrain that would provide its members with the highest level of service. With Nicklaus’ vision, it would be the caliber of facility that could host a major championship comfortably and provide the members with an incredible golf haven. Nicklaus, described the site in 1983 as a "golf designer's dream because there is a variety of terrain, vegetation and water to work with. Everything necessary for an excellent golf course is here: room for wide, tree lined fairways and spectacular golf holes." In the spring of 1984, after considering 40 potential course routings, construction began and the final product opened for play in June of 1986.
