Elmore Just Memorial Golf Tournament...
Held at beautiful Persimmon Ridge Golf Club, this annual event honors the life and legacy of Louisville Golf founder Elmore Just. Affectionately called The Elmore, every April golfers meet to enjoy the golf clubs that Elmore made on the golf course he helped bring to life. The tournament benefits the endowed Elmore Just Scholarship Fund at Bellarmine University, Elmore’s alma mater.
During The Elmore hole No. 7 is played in silence, keeping with the tournament tradition began at the first event in 2002. Elmore Just passed away on April 23, 2001.
Teams who birdie No. 7 place their ball on Elmore's grave in the Just Family cemetery adjacent to No. 7 green.
Tee shots on No. 7 are hit with a Persimmon driver.
“So here is the challenge if you want to play better golf: forget about trying to play better and concentrate on enjoying the game more. For in the long run this is the surest way to play better golf. I love this game.”
