Hidden gem

Great course! It’s a hidden gem along the Ohio River in Northern Kentucky. Several picturesque holes with tee boxes overlooking the golf course. Course in great shape except for some fairways burnt up from the heat. Excellent value for the money and good course layout.

Honest review

This course is very good for your beginner to average players, such as myself. It is open enough where it’s not surrounded with tress, but still challenging. THTe greens are kept in great condition.

Fast easy cart path only round

Played 18 in less than 3 hours with at least 8 groups in front of me, it’s amazing when Average golfers know if it’s cart path only AIM for the paths, your round can be played quicker. Course was in great shape.

Great Local Course

I have been playing here a lot recently as it is close to home, and have really been enjoying my rounds. The course superintendent and his staff are doing a great job keeping the leaves off the short grass and surrounding rough. Temperature permitting they have been changing hole locations and rolling the greens, which is more than I would ask for on January 7. Pace of play was about 3 hours for 18 holes.

This course is a great value, and I look forward to many more rounds here this year.

They’re Back

Course was in EXCELLENT shape. Played a few times past year or so and it was average at best. They’ve definitively put some work into the course. Tee boxes were immaculate. Greens were very fast but true. Challenging but fair course. Some elevated tee boxes make for some scenic drives if you hit them well. I’ll be back.

Great value

This course offers good value. It is a fun but short course. I would have liked to see more bunkers and the bunkers that exist in better shape. However, the rest of the course looked good and the greens and tee boxes were well kept. Overall I would recommend to a friend.
