Charlie Vettiner Golf Course
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.
Golf carts are cleaned after every 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.

Charlie Vettiner Golf Course is designated as a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” through the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses, an Audubon International program. To reach certification, a course must demonstrate a high degree of environmental quality in a number of areas including environmental planning, wildlife and habitat management, outreach and education and water quality management.
This is a gorgeous golf course with rolling hills, bent grass greens, and zoysia fairways. If the 50 white sand bunkers and tree-lined fairways aren’t enough to get your attention, how about the creek that meanders through several holes, with ponds on #5, #14 and #18. This has been rated as the 7th most challenging course in Kentucky. However, there are enough different tee markers to either help or challenge every level of golfer. A fully stocked Pro Shop and snack bar will help round out any day at this beautiful course. Along with spectacular golf, Charlie Vettiner Park also features a fishing lake, fitness course, hiking trails, and playground for complete family entertainment.
