18 hole boutique golf course

Welcome to Audubon Golf Course

Designed in 1908 by Thomas Bendelow, the Audubon Country Club golf course has been regarded as one of the finest championship golf courses in the region for more than a century. The golf course features tree lined zoysia fairways and bentgrass putting greens and measures just over 6,800 yards from the championship tees. Recent updates by local architect, Spencer Holt, have kept the course current in its presentation. Lifetime home to hall of famers Pee Wee Reese and Paul Hornung, Audubon has entertained public figures like Bobby Jones, Bing Crosby, Happy Chandler, Walter Hagen, Babe Zaharias and Carol Channing in its storied past. In recent years, Audubon has been the frequent host of the Kentucky Open, Kentucky State Amateur, Kentucky Senior Amateur and KGA Mid-Amateur state championships. With its natural setting, close proximity to downtown as well as the University of Louisville and other Louisville landmarks, Audubon is the perfect country club home for golfers of all ages and ability levels.
