such a shame
the course is closed...what a waste...such a shame
SAD - Owner should sell to a Committed Buyer!
I played this course because Golf Digest listed it as the #2 Best Public Course in Kentucky.
The layout reflects that! It is an excellent challenging layout.
Course conditions - horrible. It appears that the Grounds crew was greatly reduced. Weeds, lack of attention, overgrown plants, grass, bushes - etc. Very Poor condition. The wooden steps walking up to the Pro-shop are breaking apart and are dangerous!. Many holes had no ball washers, and half that did there was no towels, handle broken, no water.
One of the locals that I talked to stated - ever since the owner dies, his son took over and has stopped maintaining the course.
Regardless if true or not - the Owner should sell and allow a Committed Owner to refurbish the course and bring it back to respectability.
The course and grounds condition is pathetic.
I only paid $14 which included a cart - a great buy almost anywhere. But I think I overpaid!
Tough but beautiful
This course is very challenging for the average golfer. It was a pleasure playing it and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
This course was a great place to come play years ago. Now not so much. Tee boxes bad , weeds in them. Bunkers was horriable , no sand in bunkers .I
know this is October ,BUT could be kept much better . Would not play here again.
Course was in pretty good shape, the greens were excellent! The bunkers are all totally unplayable which really took away from the course.
Bad Bad Bad
This use to be one of my favorite trips to take. Old Silo WAS my favorite course to play. Its all in a shambles now. I've never seen a course with so much crabgrass. even the fairways have it. Labor day weekend we played 54 holes. I bet I only saw 5 maybe 6 groups other than ours. Its a shame to see a Grahm Marsh design go to the weeds. Get it back to its formal glory and I may come back and play it again. Until then I'll spend my money elsewhere. Say like Kendalville Indiana.
not what it used to be
This course is a shadow of what it used to be, fairways full of crab grass, bunkers horrible, crabgrass around the greens, greens are not too bad, but not they used to be or could be, great layout but in need of care. it is a shame what this place has become, I played it a lot when it was new, and it was a show place, but no more.
Bad day golfing
Course was in terrible shape !! Sand traps were horrible !! Rough next to fairways was to tall !!
course not in good shape......sand traps are either ground under repair or full of grass.....not worth the money to play here....gibson bay in lot better shape and better price
I have played this course about 5-10 times over the past 8 years and really enjoyed it. The course has a great layout and is very challenging. I booked a weekend tee time for $40 thinking that I was getting a steal for this course. Little did I know, I would be very disappointed. I will not go back to this course as all the features are very poor. All bunkers have not been maintained for over 6 months and are now waste areas. The rough was about a foot tall (which I understand can be to make it challenging) but it was all crab grass. The greens rolled at a decent speed but had not been manicured in a while and no one out there fixes their ball marks anymore. The fairways were the longest I have ever seen them and had several spots where the maintenance crew messed up via oil or dropping the blade too soon. To say the least, I will never be going back to what used to be an absolutely stellar and beautiful course which was a great attraction to bring golfers to Mount Sterling.
