Welcome to Heartland Golf Club and Sports Pub.
This course has a long history, formerly known as Pine Valley Golf to
most people in the area. However, most don’t know that before it had
that name, it was known as Lonesome Pine. Originally built by Bill
Poole, the course was taken over by Burton Langley in 1966. After the
purchase was complete, the name was changed to Pine Valley and stayed
that way until April of 2012.
On April 23rd, 2012, the course has begun a new journey with new
owners – Loy Brashear and John Potts. After purchasing Pine Valley and
Three Putt Willies (the sports pub), the duo chose the name Heartland
Golf Club and Sports Pub and opened for business in the midst of a major
renovation to the clubhouse and restaurant areas. Much-needed work has
also begun on the course, bringing it back to its former glory. We are
all very excited to see what the spring season brings!
A little known fact about Heartland Golf Club: two years,
back-to-back, the course has played host to the Ben Hogan Tour. In May
of 1990 and May of 1991, the Nationwide, 30-city tour came through the
heartland of Kentucky and descended right here in Elizabethtown. Though
this tour was taken over by the Nike Tour, Buy.com Tour, Nationwide
Tour, and now the Web.com Tour, it played a very important role in the
careers of some notable PGA pros such as Tom Lehman and Jeff Maggert.
It is a testament to the design, layout, and difficulty of the course
that such a tour cam here not once, but twice! And this same level of
challenge and beauty are available to you, right now! For details on
the holes, layout, and difficulty ratings, please see our Course Page.
