Nevel Meade Golf Club Prospect – Louisville, KY

Nevel Meade Golf Club was built in 1990 and designed by course architect Steve Smyers.


Nevel Meade Golf Course is modeled on the links courses from Scotland. If not for the fact that there is no beach or shore around, you’d be tricked into believing that this is indeed a links course.

The open grounds without trees, the rolling terrain with mounds and crater-like bunkers, and the tall heather grass are all evocative of a links course.

And, as you can imagine, this is a beautiful course with scenic backdrops. Although the grounds themselves are devoid of trees, the fairways are pretty, and the course is bordered by thickly wooded areas with wildlife with a serene vibe to them.

The course has been featured consecutively from 2017 until now in the Top Courses In Kentucky list and is on par with the private country clubs in the region.

The grounds can be challenging but not overly penal. The fairways are wide and open. There are no water hazards except on one hole.

The challenges come in the form of undulations and mounds, strategic bunkers, the tall grass of the rough, wind due to treeless fairways, and several blind shots because of the change in elevation.

As long as the ball is kept on the fairways, one should be able to put up a decent score on the board.

The course measures 6840 yards from the tips and is a mid-length course. This is a course that can test the skills of experienced golfers. However, with 5 sets of tees available, can be fun and challenging for players at all levels.
