Only thing I disliked about the course was that there are a few patchy and dry spots on the greens. But NKGC is somewhere I look forward to going back to

NKY GC

Course was in good shape although there were some burned fairways and greens. The course is good for the average player playing from the white tees. It would be more challenging from tees further back. We had a good round and enjoyed playing there.

Great value and

Very good course for the cost. Course was in very good shape.

It is challenging to the average golfer, but not unreasonably so. If you're wild off the tee you will pay a price, but keep it in play and you should have good shots to any of the greens.

First Time Playing

Disappointing

First time playing this course. Too many blind tee shots, carts paths need serious repairs. Need signs to direct you where the next hole is, too many holes close together and crabgrass taking over the rough.

Tee boxes and fairways in great shape. Greens were little slower than previously. Also some brown out spots on the greens. Pace of play was excellent. Not crowded during the week. Course has some challenging holes. Position is required off the tees. Love playing this course and great deal through golf now.

It is Spring but...

It is still early in the year but the course particularly the bunkers needs some dressing up. Also not sure why they changed the hole sequence on the back nine last year but the GPS still does not recognize the new sequence. Staff is very friendly. Overall a very nice and challenging course. Great price through GolfNow!

Great conditions, fast greens, fun layout

Great hidden gem. Always fast green and challenging layout. Front nine is traditional tree lined, back nine has lots of elevation changes and is more position type course
