First time so was unfamiliar with layout. Course has challenging holes and we enjoyed it. The greens were a little rough. Looks like people didn't fix their ball makes. We'll play ghere again.

Course was in good shape, a few unique holes, if you don't know the layout a few holes can be confusing. Found myself in a little trouble a couple holes hitting the ball where I intended; however, it wasn't right for that hole. Well worth the effort to play.

I was in the area for business and decided to try out Drake's Creek.

It was a interesting course to play that was in pretty good shape.

The greens overall were good and the fairways for the most part were in good shape also.

The only negative was having to wait a half hour to tee off when no one was there due to the fact I booked on Golfnow.

I've played this course on numerous occassions. Each time I've always wondered, "Why dont they take better care of the greens". This is a great, precision course. Regular price is upwards of $40. The greens don't justify having these prices. This is one of the most expensive courses in the area. Using GolfNow makes me feel better about playing there. I'm ok with paying $20 for a great course with so-so greens. But not $40. Please, focus on your greens...

First time playing the course, came up from Nashville for a tournament. Staff was very friendly. The course was in pretty good shape. Tee boxes & fairways were in fantastic shape. The greens weren't in the best of shape because previous players did not fix pitch marks & they were everywhere.The greens were very bumpy & fairly slow.

Ive played this course a few times over the years and this was the last straw. Booked 18 holes and drove 45 minutes from my house to play here, get here on time and was told we'd have to play the back 9 twice because they had the front 9 closed. Stuff like this has happened 3 times to me now with this course. Also had several bad patches in fairways. And pace of play was slow, because everybody was on the back 9.

I have played this course several times before and I think now is in optimal condition. The fairways are like carpet and the greens have recovered from the winter, they are not too fast or slow, they have the best grass.

Always love playing this course. The tee boxes and fairways are second to none in the area. Greens were pretty bad, but thats what you get having bent grass around here. Was a very good day weather wise, so lots of people on course and pace of play was fairly slow. But would definitely recommend playing this course. Just wish the greens were in better shape.

This course is one of my favorites in Western Kentucky. Unfortunately, the greens, especially on the back nine, have fallen victim to the abundance of rain and heat we've had this summer. 7 greens on the back are basically lost at this point. The front is also spotty right now, but not lost. Other than the greens the course is in is typical great shape. Hopefully as the temps cool down the greens week be in much better shape. When they are decent I would highly recommend the course.

The fairways are in great shape but greens are a bit beat up which is to be expected for August in the South. However, they have really good rates so hard to complain. Staff is always nice here and they have great grill if you want to call in and get something on the turn. We started mid afternoon and got behind several foursomes and one fivesome so pace was kind of slow.

Besides all critics below the course lay-out and fairways are good and challenging. The greens are very soft with lots of bad divots which make accurate putting very difficult.

But I did not feel very welcomed on this Wednesday afternoon. I've booked through Golfnow and was about 55 minutes early to my reserved tee-time. Because the course wasn't packed and lots of tee-times available this afternoon I was asking if I can play right away. The staff at the Pro-Shop said "no", if I wouldn't be willing to pay a surcharge in addition to my prepaid green fee. They showed me a list with prices, e.g. $10 extra if you are 30 minutes prior to your Golfnow reserved tee-time, $15 for 45 minutes and so on. After some minutes of discussions about "the club does not get any money from Golfnow" and "they don't care much if I even play, because I did not pay them directly" I ended up paying the requested surcharge. Later I found out, that hole 12 was closed for today, so my "double charged green fee" was good only for 17 holes.

My son and I drove two hours to play this course. When we got there we were told the 12th hole was closed, due to repair. She advised the other greens were fine. All the greens are in very bad shape. Fairways and Tee Boxes were very nice. I would not recommend playing this course at this time.
