For this area this course is by far in the best shape. Grounds crew has done a phenomenal job getting this course in shape early in the season. Pace of play was good on a weekday.

Nice Course!

This is a KY State Parks course with a great layout near Lake Barkley. They had aerated the greens early in the week, so they surprised us with a welcome discount. The tees and fairways were fine. The sand traps left a lot to be desired, but that's not unusual for a public course.

We played in the morning and basically had the course to ourselves. Good times.

Golf Scramble Out After Starting

Great location, scenic! Friendly staff. Course was in good shape. Bad thing! They sent a shotgun scramble out during our round. It delayed us for hours. We lost our momentum and enthusiasm. I would recommend the course but check to see if they have a scramble scheduled.

Nice Course close to Lake Barkley Lodge

My wife and I played this course twice this past week. The course is in very good condition. The fairways were good and the greens were excellent. Watch for the stones in the bunkers. They can be hidden just under the sand, making blasting out an experience. The staff was excellent as was the cart drink lady. The carts are excellent as in new. We saw several deer and turkeys. I will play this course when I'm in the area.

Nice course

This is a nice course. The staff was very friendly. The course is well maintained. There are a few challenging holes with just enough water and trees to make it interesting!

Great State Park Course

The course was in great shape despite heavy rains the week before. Bentgrass greens were absolutely beautiful and in perfect condition despite high temperatures and humidity. Some of the fairways were cart paths only, but was to be expected since there was about 10 inches of rain the week before. Great course and pace of play was excellent!

Great little course.....will play it again!

Well, I retired a year ago and decided to teach myself to play golf. I'm playing about 4 times a week. The first thing is this course was in pretty good shape, and I've played a few courses. The greens needed some attention but overall very nice condition. One of the nicest things was I played on Saturday, and I only saw one golfer in 18 holes in my direction of play. At 68 yrs old I've been shooting mostly low to mid 80's....WELL...on this course I shot my year low at 74. I will definitely be going back here. (ps) the cart return (barn) is at the far end of the parking lot, and when I returned the cart a woman who works there came with another cart to give me a ride back. NICE TOUCH to a Great Day.

Dear Fred Mueller,
We gals at the cart barn on Saturday are volunteers. We try to cart people back to their cars if they want, especially when that parking lot is 90 degrees plus! We appreciate you bringing your cart down to the barn and hope you had a great round of golf!

GO PLAY THIS COURSE

From the time, I entered the facility to check in, it was wonderful. The lady at the counter was business friendly, and just started the round out well.

The course has some very difficult holes, but was in good condition from tee to green. I did think there was a lot of distance from the gold tees around 5700 and the white at 6600, but beyond that the course is as fine a course as I have played in sometime. It had been 15 years since I had played there, but plan to go back as soon as possible. It is not close to my residence.
If in the area, it is a must play.
