For many in Louisville, Kentucky a major sign that you have “arrived” is a home in Lake Forest.
Lake Forest’s wide boulevards wind past manicured yards, designer homes, a community clubhouse with tennis courts and swimming pool, and an 18-hole Arnold Palmer-designed golf course.
For several years in the late 1980s and early 90s, Lake Forest hosted Homearama, the local homebuilder’s association showcase of the latest building trends and designs. Often, the opulent homes were sold even before the show opened. Homerama cemented Lake Forest’s position in Louisville as the “it” community in which to buy a home.
Twenty years and 1,700 homes later, Lake Forest still retains that pull for executives, avid golfers, and even several locally prominent celebrities. Well-known retired jockey Pat Day, for example, is a Lake Forest resident.
Lake Forest residents experience an involved community association that actively communicates with its homeowners. The association is run by an active board of directors and executed by a committed staff focused on maintaining the appeal of a Lake Forest lifestyle.
And you shouldn’t get bored in Lake Forest. Not only can you play golf within its confines, your children can enjoy a summer swim and dive team; a community Easter Egg hunt, a community Halloween party, a visit from Santa, and learn from specific teen activities and of course, the American Red Cross babysitting class.
Adult residents have the option of renting the Lodge clubhouse in Lake Forest for private events, as well as heading there for bourbon and wine tasting events, comedy clubs, seminars on health, beauty and financial matters, and the annual New Year’s Eve gala.
The Lake Forest Country Club offers private play on a challenging 72-par course. The course provides 7,151 yards of rolling bent grass fairways, large greens, multiple tee boxes and 14 lakes and creeks in play.
