The public golf courses at Kenton County continue to go downhill. The fairways are patchy. The greens are worse. If you mistakenly miss the fairways with your drive, prepare to say goodbye to your ball because you'll likely never find it. The "Old man's club" that seems to be promoted out here is actually hurting the course. Way more unrepaired ball Mark's than repaired. Top that off with a refreshing $2.50 diet coke and... (way overpriced). It seems to be all the public courses around here. Boone county courses are not much better. Best decent golf in the area is Belterra or North to Cincinnati.
Took my 7 yr old son with me, both of us had a great time.
help me help you
I want to like this course I really do...I’ve played at Kenton Co since high school — 20+ years — but the past five years have seen a steady decline in the care of the course. They are making some improvements, but it’s probably to little to late.
The greens were horrible, fairways tolerable and tee boxes concrete...
Course in bad shape
The course was in horrible shape. Every fairway and green had many dead spots. I won’t be going back there
Played on a Monday morning. Not crowded and peaceful. Great time to work on my game, which needs a lot of work.
Pathetic shape for a golf course
Worst conditioned course I've played this year (30+). Superintendent should be embarrassed. Greens fee should be $15 or less. Besides the conditions, the layout is not for the average golfer. On certain holes, just off the fairway, the rough is no longer mown for no particular reason, other than to save $$. Spent all their $$ on the clubhouse and re-design of the parking lot! That's what golfers want, a lovely clubhouse and parking lot!! HAH!!
Had a great time
This course had a great layout and was a lot of fun.
I have played every course this year at Kenton County, and the Willows was by far in the worst shape. Greens were hard as a rock and not very receptive. The greens has big holes where turf was missing, especially on the 10th and the 11th holes. The fringe areas had patches of long grass, and it seemed that my ball found the bare patch behind a piece of rough on two or three holes. The staff is friendly inside, but the mowers are going to do their job even if you are ready to tee off. I hit one over a mower because I was tired of waiting, and he stared me down on my next shot, then followed me until I got to the green. It was very frustrating!!!!
Some of the greens had big black spots other than that for a Sunday it was a great value and pace of play was 4 hours
