Overgrown aerated and slow play

The Fairway was like rough. The rough was like US Open rough. The greens were aerated and sanded. No one said a thing when I checked in. To top things off, I bumped into six players and five carts playing in front of me

Give it a shot

Probably played at the wrong time of season. Tee boxes being reworked and several greens had some black crusty sheen on them. Get theses repaired, it's a neat , tough course. 6200 from near tips, many blind second shots. Like doglegs? They're here. Again finish repairs, really nice , uncrowded course. Try it!!

Good Experience

A few tee boxes and greens a little rough but, overall, can't beat the value. Layout can be deceivingly challenging and pace is usually pretty good. For the price, one of my favorite courses around. Recommend for the average hacker like me...

Nice layout but needs some care

I really liked the layout of the course. Couple things really bothered me tho. There was no map or hole pictures on score card or hole markers. Hard to know where to hit it if you've never played there before. Also the yardage on the scorecard didn't match tee hole markers. Sometimes it was 20 yards different others were 100. Updating that would make a huge difference.

Great course

This course was in great condition. Still challenging for the longer hitters. Placement off the tee is crucial. Overall great course to play

Interesting course

Nice little course. Good value. Front nine very good. Back nine has some sketchy spots, but very playable. Knowing the course would be a great advantage.

Course is in great shape

Course is beautiful, well maintained, greens were good and also very fast. Fairways are narrow creating a small margin of error in numerous places but makes it interesting.

Getting better

This is a good course for a very amateur golfer like me. Not a lot of water hazards. Condition of the course continues to improve. Tee boxes and greens were in good shape. Greens were very fast. One of the best values in the ares.

Best shape in years

Best deal for the dollar in central Kentucky,, yes there are some rough spots in the fairway,, but the rough is thick and the greens are slick. They have put time and effort into this course and it really shows.

It's ok

Great value for the money. However, the back 9 is in horrible condition. The fairways are in such bad shape. Also there isn't a driving range and one tiny putting/practice green.

beautiful views in bluegrass

The course has been changed, since my last visit to the region. Interesting holes on new portion with some beautiful views of the river on the back. Greens were a little rough, but it is March. This course is worth your time, and I think you will be pleased with the round.

Getting Better

As a local I have played Canewood numerous times over the last few years...the course offers a relatively challenging layout...according to the pro shop attendant the tee boxes will be opened up in March...still some dead spots on the back that will give you trouble but it is February. A lot of good work going on here...good value for the money
