Play Golf at Cherokee Park
Now that Spring has sprung, why not get out and enjoy it? Go hit the links this April at Cherokee Golf Course, because you can hardly find a better way to celebrate the season of spring than with a round of golf.
Golf in the Park
Cherokee Golf Course was founded in 1895, and it’s the oldest course in Louisville. It’s a short course with a lot of hills, and that makes it challenging. Cherokee is great practice for golfers who want to improve their iron game. The course has a great Pro Shop, a practice putting green, a snack bar and a big picnic area in case you want to bring your own stuff to eat. The golf course is part of historic Cherokee Park, which is famous for its scenic trails and beautiful features.
Go to the golf course at 2501 Alexander Road this April, and get out there to enjoy the spring weather. Book your tee time online through the Louisville Metro Parks website. The course is right next to Cherokee Triangle, a beautiful and historic Louisville neighborhood with some of the city’s most sought-after houses. After you get a glimpse of them through the trees, you won’t be able to help but get closer so you can get a much better look.
Play Around in Cherokee Triangle
Cherokee Triangle is between the park and historic Cave Hill, both attractions that are famously beautiful. On the third side of the triangle, this neighborhood is bordered by Bardstown Road. The lifeline of the Highlands, Bardstown Road is the center of Highlands culture. People come here to shop in independent boutiques, eat in the trendiest restaurants and sip coffee in artsy little places with live performers.
The architects of Cherokee Triangle wanted it to be a perfect suburban neighborhood. The culture all around it, the natural beauty on both sides of it and the incredible homes inside of it all helped Cherokee Triangle achieve this goal. The historic homes in Cherokee Triangle are an eclectic, fascinating mix of architectural styles. The grandeur of the late 1800s, the creative expression of the early 1900s and Old World beauty of Colonial styling are all present in Cherokee Triangle. The custom-built homes here are unique and they all have a story to tell, but that story isn't one of age. These homes have been beautifully preserved and renovated over the years. The architecture may be from another era, but these homes are thoroughly modern inside.
Get out and about in Louisville this April, and get a long look at this part of the city. You may get some ideas in your head about living here pretty soon.
