Richmond, Kentucky | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6659 yards

The Bull is nestled in the heart of Kentucky horse country and stretches over 120 rolling acres of woods, water and wildlife. The bentgrass tee, fairways, and green surrounds offer some of the best playing surfaces in the world. The roughs are a fescue blend, while the green surfaces are of bentgrass.It was only a few years ago that this lush land was farmland belonging to Cassius Marcellus Clay. A few miles from White Hall a steep cliff towers above the Kentucky River, where banks of stratified limestone form a 200-foot crest. Once young Clay, struggling with a purebred bull, exploded in a blind fury and ran the bull over the precipice. ""That bull has gone to hell,"" he told a neighbor. And so the name of the high point on the Kentucky River remains ""Bull`s Hell.""
