Amazing course

Today was the first time I’ve ever played the course as I was always intimidated by the tall grass surrounding every fairway. Let me tell ya, that course was in such great shape and so good, that I will become a member soon! Great facility and Robert, the PGA pro, was awfully kind!

Plus I shot the lowest round I’ve ever played, so I have to be a big fan!!

Course is in great shape.

Typical link style course. Some blind shots. Some doglegs. Fast greens, in great shape. Fairways are plush. Nice practice area. Easy to find, just off the interstate.

Always a Gem

Nevel Meade is one of my top 3 favorite courses in the area. Great course layout that makes you really think about club selection instead of just pulling driver on every tee box. Greens were very soft and receptive, yet they rolled very quickly compared to others I’ve played recently. Wish this was so much out of my way going home, but it’s always worth stopping to play for the value.

Good course but pace of play poor

Great course,great condition, great weather. The only drawback was pace of play. 5+ hours is inexcusable when previous rounds here has only taken 4 hours at the most. Will still be back.

One of the Best in Louisville

In my opinion, Nevel Meade ranks near or at the top of golf courses in and around Louisville. Tees, Fairways, Greens, Bunkers were all in perfect condition and the rough is very manageable. We played on a Hot Deal for $40 on a Friday morning so the pace of play was outstanding. they have a practice putting green and nice driving range to warm up before the round. Their are several tee box choices to choose from for every level of golfer. The carts have a GPS readout on them that we found very useful. There aren't any hole layouts, just Front, Middle, Back yardages. Ultimately, if you are looking for a beautiful, fun course, this is one. You will not be disappointed if you choose to play at Nevel Meade. Highly recommended.

Very nice golf course

Beautiful golf course. Very challenging.

Here are the drawbacks:

* No beer.

* Greens were pretty beat up.

* There is NO shade. It was humid the day we played, but not overly hot. A 95 degree day on this track would be brutal.

I will definitely play it again. The entire foursome enjoyed the challenge.

Great public course

Great course that was in terrific condition. Listed average for off-course amenities because I didn’t use any. Super friendly staff and quick when making the turn. The only negative I can list is that by mid afternoon on a hot Saturday, the water coolers on the back were already empty. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area that you should give this track a try, you won’t be disappointed.

Course is a great links style course that makes you feel like you are playing the Open Championship. Our round was cut short because of rain but, I would say this is one of the nicer course in town open to the public.
