What a Deal!!!
Have lived close-by for 40 years and hadn't played Penn Run in all that time. Played it for the first time last year and loved it and I keep going back. It's a neat experience as it harkens back to the days before tee-times and debit/credit cards - they take neither! First come first served and bring cash (they have an ATM in the shop). It's a mom & pop (or family run outfit) so it's not your typical clubhouse. The staff is usually helping their kids with homework or doing some family type stuff off to the side but it just adds to the ambiance of the place which makes it so awesome. $10 to walk and $25 (w/a $1 refund per rider when you turn in the key) is the best deal in town for sure. Also, no 'pro-shop' to speak off. There's usually a couple tubs of recovered balls for sale, some gloves, etc. and there always seems to be a couple of odd clubs for sale but are always a great deal. (ie - a left handed Adams hybrid for $10). The ball carousel is how you determine who tee's off next. Early weekend mornings are rough but later in the day it moves right along. The fairways aren't bent grass or Bermuda, it's regular old Fescue or blue grass and is in great shape. The greens are lush and sl-o-o-o-w. Give you good practice on putting the line. The front nine is pretty straight forward, not many layups required but has a lot of trees on the either side. They keep the grass short in the trees though. The back nine is much more technical requiring better course management for your next shot. The trees are there but the grass in longer within them making it more difficult for sure. Two of my playing partners were first timers on Penn Run and thoroughly enjoyed it as well. If you live anywhere near Louisville this is a must play!!!
Good Value and course is getting better
I have played here for a few years now and for only $10 to walk during the week this is excellent. Front nine is open and good for amateurs like myself. Back nine is tighter but fun to play. They started redoing there course fairways last year (2013) so this year should be a lot better to play on. I would advise everyone to play this course.
