The Louisville Golf Club Company has made its mark on the golf industry and the recent Ryder Cup.

The locally-owned business, best known for being the world's leading manufacturer of wood golf clubs, has been creating quality drivers and putters since 1974.

Eight employees keep the tradition alive and continue to hand craft these works of golf art.  Recently, they used the wood from cherry trees removed from Valhalla to make beautiful commemorative Ryder Cup putters.

But a different kind of wood outperforms cherry on the course.  Josh Fischer of the Louisville Golf Club Company says, "Persimmon primarily is the wood of choice over time -- we call it natures gift to the game of golf."
