Championships

Junior Falls Cities

The Junior Falls Cities is among the longest standing and most historic junior golf tournaments in the United States. The event is hosted each year by Louisville Metro Parks & Recreation while the Kentucky PGA Junior Tour joined the administrative efforts of the event in 2022. The overall boys champion receives an exemption into the Men's Metro Championship while the overall girls winner earns a spot in the Ladies Jefferson County Tournament. 

The list of champions is a true identifier of who's who for golf in Louisville and surrounding cities since 1945. Some of the notable past winners from any division include major champions Justin Thomas and Bobby Nichols, former PGA TOUR winners such as Jodie Mudd and Frank Beard, along with other successful NCAA players and PGA Professionals. Two-time winners include Parge Fischer (father of Mayor Greg Fischer), Rich Casabella, Denny Thompson, Patrick Vadden, and Brandon Berry. Among participants to participate without capturing a title are Masters winner Fuzzy Zoeller and PGA Tour players Ted Schulz and Dave Peege, many Korn Ferry Tour and mini tour players, along with hundreds who went on to play college golf.
