A new favorite

Was only able to play nine holes due to the heat, but really liked what I saw. Nice greens for bent grass, smooth, very few bumps. Couple of bare spots in the fairways, but overall very nice!

A new favorite!

Weather was VERY hot! Heat index of 105. Course was in great shape, aside from a few bare spots around trees. Only played 9 holes do to the heat, but was very impressed! Rick in the clubhouse was very helpful! First visit but I will definitely be back!

A must play

I'm a senior that plays lots of golf and courses in western ky. For me its well worth the 50 minute drive. When you arrive you are met by a congenial and friendly staff. The view from the first tee is awesome and the course is in great shape. The greens hold and putt true, you can play it down in the fairways, the rough is kept mowed, and the bunkers are very playable. The layout keeps your interest with just the right amount of challenge but very playable for the scratch player or the 20 handicapper. One of the best in the area you won't be disappointed .

Beautiful course

This is a beautiful golf course. There were a couple of greens that were not in great shape. The person at the front desk said someone sprayed round-up on them last year.

Great layout

If you want a hassle free round playing at your own pace this is the place. Staff and owners very accomidating. From the senior tees difficulty would be moderate with some challenging holes. From the tips it would be all you want. Really a good layout. Defiantly worth playing.

Not a bad course, needs some TLC

Never played this course, not a bad course, had some difficult holes, if had better maintenance of the course, this course would be a fabulous course, if something is not done soon, the Johnson grass will take over the fairways. The staff was extremely friendly, I will go back in the spring to see if it is in better shape. The course had a nice layout

Course is in better shape than other courses in the area

Had a great time. Only one green had some brown spots, the rest of them were great. Other courses in the area, their greens are burnt up. Can't wait to go back.
