All the way back in 1966, a number of Louisville locals were together at a party and spent the evening sipping famous Kentucky Mash. As usual, the world’s problems were solved, except one toward the end of the evening: the courses in the city proper were just too damn crowded.
I’m told these fine fellows slept in that morning, but renewed their interest in the last conversation of the previous night soon after they woke up. One thing led to another and James A. McWilliams, owner of a large tract of land in Oldham Country, was the founder of what soon became Sleepy Hollow Golf Course.
The course is touted as one of the best nine-hole courses in the entire state to this day. Even though folks travel from all around to play here, everyone is treated like family. It’s been that way since the beginning and certainly isn’t going to change any time soon.
The layout? Straight forward. Condition? More than suitable for anyone. The experience? Golf as it should be in a place where you’d least expect.
