Persimmon Ridge Golf Club, located in the northwest corner of Shelby County, will begin challenging golfers in a new way.

As the course celebrates its 20th anniversary, it will also offer 20 holes.

According to Lawren Just, president of Persimmon Ridge, construction to add the third nine holes began four years ago, but with the downturn in the real estate market, only two of the holes have been completed.

“This has created a unique situation, where we are able to alternate the back nine to create a different course. Golfers can once again play on old 17 and 18 – two great holes,” she said in a press release. “We’re the only club in the Louisville area with 20 holes.”

Holes 17 and 18 will alternate monthly. Logistics have been coordinated with the Kentucky Golf Association (KGA) so golfers can post for the appropriate holes online.
