6th annual Legends Open: May 16, 2016
Who is a Louisville Sports Commission Legend? He or she is a retired athlete or coach who achieved at a high level in sports and who hails from the Kentuckiana region, attended a Kentuckiana college or university and/or spent time in the region participating in his or her respective sport. The Louisville region is fortunate to have a very rich history of legendary sports figures, including the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali. Because of the Legends’ importance to our community, the Louisville Sports Commission established the Legends Open as one small way in which we can recognize these men and women for their incredible sporting achievements, to help preserve their legacy, and encourage each Legend to continue to be great Ambassadors for our community. So, to honor our Legends, the Louisville Sports Commission hosted its sixth annual Legends Open on May 16, 2016, at the Hurstbourne Country Club.
