CRAPPY GREENS. POOR VALUE
I have played MOKH lots of times over the years. Fun layout, and some challenging shots and holes. Pace of play was very slow. 4 1/2+ hours. Not unheard of for a Sunday I suppose. My BIG complaint was the greens. EXTREMELY slow. Grass was very long and seemed it had mot been mowed in 3 or 4 days. (even though it ha not rained in over a week.) Lots of small dead patches made putting not fun at all. The ball didn't roll to the hole, it bounced there and screeched to a halt as though it was velcro. For a $45 course it was ridiculous. MOKY used to have some of the best greens around.
Not a bad course but could be better
My first time playing this course and a little disappointed. The greens were extremely long and soft, almost creating full fried egg divots when hitting greens on approach. Probably the slowest greens I have ever tried to putt on. The front nine was closed and of course there was no notification or warning when I booked my tee time online. The layout and hole design is nice but the course maintenance leaves something to be desired. Kentucky parks Department should put more money into maintaining these courses if they want to keep people coming back to play.
Always a good time
Always fun golfing at MOKH. Front 9 was closed due to work on the course so we played the back 9 twice. Just a fun and beautiful course to play. It’s Fall so the leaves are changing and falling so it was hard to find the ball sometimes. Even in the fairway. But, it’s still better than being at work.

They had us start on #10 and when we made the turn, I knew why. Had we started on number 1 and after a couple of holes, we would have left. The greens are horrible. The rough is so high even a little ways in and you cannot find your ball. There were some foursomes in front of us and the pro said they play almost every day. But they made it so bad having to wait on their matches and whatever. I have played this course several times in the past years, but I am sure we will not be going back.
Greens are not in good shape lots of dead places on them making putting difficult The rest of the course is ok, rough up a little
Clubhouse ok friendly and efficuent
Almost all the greens are dead on the front 9 the back 9 is better but not much. Course layout is fine have no problems with is but the greens for that price not worth it.
The weather was about the best I've seen in Kentucky. An extremely good day for golf. The fairways were in very good condition however, the greens left a lot to be desired. The pace of this round was slower than I generally experience and I believe there was no one checking the pace to move things along. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the round. I'll be back.
Staff was really great—very friendly and helpful. Course was in very good condition for mid-August in Kentucky except for most greens, which were in bad shape, with lots of bare spots and pock marks.
Good Value for the modey
Pretty in spots
Most holes forgiving for sprayers
Sand traps filled with gravel
Some greens (from memory about 4 holes) are sparsely covered with grass
still a good place to play
the greens had a few bad places in them they look bad but they putted good was quick they had a tournament the day we played but we finish in a little over 4 hrs fairway and rough was mowed good they are working fixing several sand bunkers like i said the greens looked rough but still a great place to play
Course was in good shape considering recent rains. Could have used a little more roll. Greens were above average with som blotchy spot away from the pins. Staff was friendly. Challenging course with some hills around greens. Will play again.
