Valhalla Golf Club, the famous Louisville course, for sale by the PGA of America

Valhalla Golf Club has been sold by the PGA of America to a group of investors in Louisville who want to “continue to bring majors to Kentucky, according to new co-owner Jimmy Kirchdorfer. “.

“Valhalla has an amazing history for a 36-year-old club,” said ISCO Industries executive Kirchdorfer. “It’s already hosted a Ryder Cup and three majors. We just thought it was important to bring it back to local ownership. That way, we were in control. We knew people would operate in the best interest of the community. “

Kirchdorfer is a Valhalla board member who joined the club in 2004 and has previously worked with the PGA on events on the field. He was joined by three other well-known local executives: the former Yum! Brands CEO David Novak, Musselman Hotel president Chester Musselman and Junior Bridgeman, a former University of Louisville basketball player who built an entrepreneurial empire after 12 years in the NBA.
