My review

I have played this course probably 6 times in the past 10 years and none in over 2 years, but I found it to be in great shape and I was very impressed with the service received. I would definitely play this course again in the near future and recommend it to my friends.

A very nice place for an outing

Played in the rain, so we played at our own pace. The par fives are legit. Nothing was easy, you just had to hit your shot in the right place. Fairways are wide and what I noticed was from where I hit my second shot I made the only mark on the course. Wow, The staff was very friendly. all seniors so $26 to play was a steal. Like it so much we are going back tomorrow for another dose of Boones Trace.

Really surprised!

I played here probably 15 yrs ago and it was crappy. Amazing what new ownership, a cash infusion and an owner with a passion for golf what can happen! The course was in as good condition as many of the higher priced country clubs I’ve played. The greens are fast, the fringes are nice to chip off of, I was really impressed. It truly is a family business and you can tell!

Panoramic Views

This course is a must play if you are in the Lexington area. The layout is very unique,somewhat challenging but fair, with some blind tee shots, lots of doglegs and elevation changes. The scenery is spectacular as the course is near the Kentucky river. The conditioning of the golf course was excellent, the fairways were firm and fast, the greens were smooth and the bunkers were manicured very nicely. The staff was very accommodating and the improvements to the bar and grill area are very nicely done. I will be back!

Great day!

Got to play Boone Trace National today for the first time in almost 10 years. This course is very challenging with a great layout. Beautiful setting by the Ky River. A must play if you are in the Lexington/Richmond area. The 19th hole bar is top notch. Great experience.

Excellent condition

Played today from the blue tees. Course was in perfect condition, We played it down and I had excellent and fair lies. Greens are very nice with a medium fast roll. Course is somewhat challenging with several doglegs and sloped fairways. Rough is thick but mowed to a good level so you can easily find your ball but not as easy a shot to the greens. Several holes are quite stunning in beauty. Practice facility was excellent. I would highly recommend this layout.

Great Day at Boone Trace

Boone Trace is located in a beautiful, rolling landscape near the Kentucky River. The golf course is in outstanding condition, and it offers a wide variety of holes to test your skill. Both short and long par 4's, short and long par 3's, and comfortable par 5's make this a fun test, without being overly severe. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth your time.

Course is in Wonderful condition

I play this course regularly. The new owners have made wonderful changes to both the course and the amenities! I consistently hear very complementary comments from others, as well. It is very well priced and a hidden treasure. I recommend giving it a try if you haven't played it in the last six months.
