Louisville Parks and Recreation's 10 municipal golf courses will remain open for play. The department has taken several steps to ensure the safety of players and employees.
In the course clubhouses, food service will be limited to take out only. Tables and chairs will be removed to prevent social gathering, and patrons are discouraged from congregating inside them. Additionally, bathrooms and touch points will be cleaned multiple times daily, credit card terminals will be cleaned after every use, and clubhouse employees will use gloves during every transaction.
On the course, golf carts will be limited to a single rider per cart, with carts being thoroughly cleaned after each use. Golfers are encouraged to keep six feet away from each other during play, and flags are to be left in the holes at all times, based on guidance from the Department of Health and Wellness.

Founded in 1895, Cherokee is one of the oldest municipal golf courses in the United States. It’s also the oldest public golf course in Louisville. With its hilly layout and two lake holes, Cherokee is the shortest of the Louisville Parks courses, and an excellent place to improve your short-iron game. Other amenities include a fully stocked Pro Shop, snack bar, large practice putting green, and a picnic area for outings of all occasions. A fishing lake and playground area are adjacent to the course.
