The Maywood Course will challenge any golfer. It is currently ranked the fourth most difficult course in the Louisville area by Business First Magazine. Maywood measures more than 7,200 yards from the championship tees. This Bardstown golf course has five sets of tees, so both seasoned and rookie golfers can enjoy their round.
The Maywood Course first opened in 1995, when it was voted one of the best new golf courses by Golf Digest Magazine. The layout was originally designed by renowned golf architect David Pfaff of Carmel, California.
After Chris Osborne and his family took over ownership of Bardstown Country Club in 2003, they immediately began an extensive program of renovations for both the course and clubhouse. Spencer Holt, a protégé of designer Arthur Hills, was hired to make improvements on the course. Some of Holt’s most recognized work took place on Half Moon Bay and The Cardinal Club.Using Holt’s direction and the Osborne family golf knowledge, bunkers, tee boxes and a few greens were redesigned while many holes were lengthened.
With five sets of tees available, Maywood golf course expects to be an exciting test of golf for every level of golfer. The course can be played from 4600 yards all the way back to over 7200 yards for the championship caliber player. Players will find the course offers an appealing blend of traditional golf with the features of a links style design.
