The course was in excellent condition, but the pace of play was horrendous. Took 5 hours and 15 minutes. We kept up with the group in front of us, and they seemed to be "in position". This needs to me monitored better by course management and they need to keep people moving, especially on weekend mornings, when you have more serious golfers out.

Greens are in great shape and soft with lots of grass, on the slow side. The rough is very penal tall juicy Kentucky blue grass. You actually have to walk over your all to find it in the rough, better keep it in the fair ways.<br/> All in all a really good test of golf, enjoy!!

The course was in great condition specially for how dry things have been. The cart ladies and the staff that run the food and drink area were very nice but the starter, and office staff were very rude. They were not friendly at all and we (all eight of us) said that none of us will every play there again!

If you're a Golf Now user at this course, be ready to be treated a bit different.<br/> As a single, I was paired up with another single. No problem with that. I was told I couldn't have my own cart even though I was paired with a lady and it was cart path only ( for certain people). This really slowed down the pace of play. Three groups behind us were two singles playing from individual carts. I'm sure they were not Golf Now users. This is the second time I've played here using Golf Now and each time it seemed like the guy working the counter (same guy each time) was not happy we were there.<br/> If this course is going to treat Golf Now users like this, why do they participate?<br/> Overall the experience will probably keep me from playing their again. The course was in pretty poor shape as well.

It's been 13 years since I played this course. I don't know why it took so long to get back to this course but, it won't take another 13 to get me back. Overall condition of the course was very good. I love the variety of holes. Nice rolling terrain, a couple of elevated tee shots, just some great movement to the course. The greens were beautiful and healthy but, they were slow compared to my home course. I just couldn't get to the hole. Other than that, go play this course!

This is a good course that's very pretty. It's taken care I've well and the staff does a good job. My issue was pace of play we awful and the group behind me was constantly on my butt hitting in on me. I'd play it again in the off season or a weekday. Never agin on a weekend.

Was a little leery about playing Boone Links due to the 'iffy' reviews. Got a great deal on golf now so I played. No worries here. Great layout in real good condition. Super friendly staff and patrons. Joined with two teenagers playing a practice round on #10. I was impressed with these two young men. Very respectful and great poise, even on the few bad shots they hit. You do need some local knowledge as there are some blind shots. Also, no driving range. Beautiful day and great golf!!

I was unsure about the course due to a few 'iffy' reviews, but no worries here. Great property, friendly staff and a course with really good conditions. Joined with two high schoolers playing a practice round. If these two young men are indicative of future golfers, the game is intact. Great manners, decorem, etc. Other than being Louisville fans, they were great -- go Big Blue!! Great Course!!!
