Valhalla Golf Club
Louisville, Kentucky. Site of the 1996 and 2000 PGA Championships.
In an unrelenting search for the world's finest golf courses, Access Software has discovered a true bluegrass beauty. Draped over the hills and streams of Louisville is the rippled jade blanket of Valhalla - site of the 1996 PGA championship. The Valhalla Golf Club dream began in 1980 when the visionary Gahm family commissioned Jack Nicklaus to design "a golf experience equal in beauty, strategic quality, and condition to the great golf courses of the world." Nicklaus responded with a unique combination of Scottish-style links for the front nine holes and a traditional back nine adorned with maple and sycamore trees, limestone rock formations and gentle streams.
Nicklaus put a refreshing wrinkle in golf course conventions by creating par fours that would require thought and shotmaking prescision, not power. In 1986 members were charmed and masters were challenged as Valhalla opened for play and began its rapid ascension to the No. 1 ranking in Kentucky. The decision to host the 1996 PGA Championship at Valhalla secured its palce among the finest golf courses of the world. According to Norse mythology, "Valhalla" was a heaven for heroes. Now through Links LS technoloogy your heroic drives can soar over Valhalla vistas with this world-class addition to the Links LS Champoionship Course series.

Compatible with all versions of LINKS (both PC and MAC) and with Microsoft Golf versions 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0.

Computer & Net Player, May 1997
"In Norse mythology, 'Valhalla' meant 'a heaven for heroes.' Though I won't know whether it really exists until I die, the Valhalla golf course in Kentucky is the latest addition to Access's Links. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, Valhalla is a mixture of traditional course layout and Scottish link-style holes. As with just about every golf course add-on disc - and I have to say companies have a great thing going with these - Valhalla Golf Club captures the flavor of the course. Focusing more on the shot-making than on power, it will challenge all Links golfers and can be used in Microsoft Golf as well."
