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. Est. in 1926, it serves a diverse population in the Louisville West End.
Shawnee Golf Course has added targets, chipping baskets, and distance flags to our practice facilities! It is the most convenient 250-yard driving range and TWO short game practice greens in West Louisville.
Home to the Justin Thomas Youth Course, kids in our community can learn lifelong skills through the game of golf.
Shawnee Golf Course and The First Tee of Louisville have had a strong relationship for over 15 years, but as of 2020, that relationship has grown exponentially, as The First Tee of Louisville has taken over operations of the course. This helps us to better utilize the Justin Thomas Youth Course, the Edwin H. Perry Short Game Practice Facility, and 18-hole course.
As the relationship between the metro government, people of Louisville, and the First Tee of Louisville grows, we know this will strengthen the organization and offer us the opportunity to serve more youth in Metro Louisville and beyond.
