The 20-year-old clubhouse at the Louisville, Ky., property will undergo an extensive renovation, with the primary focus on the locker rooms, dining area, and creating an indoor golf experience. The updated facility is expected to be complete by spring 2017.
Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., is planning a $3.6 million renovation of its 20-year-old clubhouse. The project is expected to be complete by the spring of 2017.
A previous article, initially posted by the Louisville Courier-Journal and picked up by C&RB, reported that the cost of the renovation would be $150,000. The incorrect figure was due to an error on the building permit issued by the local government officials.
In fact, the renovation is “quite extensive,” General Manager Keith Reese, PGA, told C&RB, with the scope of the project touching on every part of the facility. The primary focus of the project will be on the locker rooms and dining area, and on creating an indoor golf experience on the clubhouse’s lower level.
“The renovation will improve the look, feel, and functionality of the clubhouse, setting the stage for Valhalla to continue to provide its members and guests with the highest quality golf experience for years to come,” Reese said.
Valhalla has been the site of three PGA Championships, two Senior PGA Championships and the 2008 Ryder Cup. The 30-year-old club was developed by the Gahm family and its course was designed by Jack Nicklaus. The PGA of America secured full ownership of the club in 2000.
C&RB featured the club in its September 2014 cover story, “A New Dawn for Valhalla GC.” In that article, Reese indicated that the club would be “looking at several [facility improvement] projects over the next five years” to help to expand food-and-beverage service for Valhalla members and also to make it possible for larger functions, meetings and events to be held on site.
