Nice course

Very nice course with some challenging par 3's over water. Most holes will challenge you to hit your driver with a fade or draw to put yourself in best position for your approch shot. Greens were nice and very receptive to well hit shots.

Great Course, Slow Pace, Little high priced.

My wife went out of town and so I played 18 by myself, and started at 3:00. I didn’t reach 10 until 6:00. It took 3 hours to play 9 holes. At numerous holes we were backed up 3 groups deep. Not the group behind me but the TWO groups behind them left because of pace, not before saying some choice words lol. The group of 5 that was holding the entire course up left after 9, so I flew through the back with nobody ahead and was pulling out at 7:30. As for the course it was nice, watered greens, some spots were pretty horrid and needed attention. This course is fun, challenging, water and bunkers were plentiful. I didn’t think $41 for 18 and a cart was a great value, with sinkholes and some pretty rough areas of the course (Broke multiple tees in the ground boxes were so hard) even if I take out the horrible experience with the pace. I will probably play again but Golfnow it for 25-30 bucks is probably more fair, but I understand these courses aren’t for charity and need to turn a profit.

Never Disappointed

First time playing Gibson Bay this year and the greens were in great shape. We played in the morning so everything was wet but playable. We will be back. One of the best values and challenging courses in central Kentucky.

Great course great value

My experience was perfect. Very challenging course for a below average golfer like me. There was a youth golf clinic in front of me and kind of wished they suggested me to start at back 9. Still had a great time and will be coming back.
