Good, but could be great.

The people working here are very nice.
The cart paths are horrendous.

Greens need to be rolled. The ball literally bounces to the hole(s) when puttig. Putts can't hold their line.

I would love to play here more often instead of Lassing in Boone Coiunty .They simply take care of the couse better. It's always full and I live 5 minutes away from there. People will pay if the course is maintained.

Fall Golf and may have expected too much

Every green condition was sketchy with bare spots and you struggled to get a true roll towards the hole. As soon as you hit a ball out of the fairway it was 50/50 chance you would loose your ball in the leaves. Felt like we were looking for balls all day causing a five hour round.,

Nice fall morning!

I’ve avoided this course at all cost in the past, Kenton county has since changed ownership. It’s in great condition again and the place looks good. I will be back

Be prepared for slow play

Booked an early evening tee time. They had a lot of 18 hole times listed in the early evening so I expected an empty course and fast play. At least they recognized pace was going to be slow and only allowed 9 holes for purchase. Tee'd off 20 minutes after my scheduled tee time and was stuck behind a very slow league. Played 9th hole in the dark, after a 2 hour and 30 minute first 8, which was only sped up by two groups in front of me giving up. If you are going to have a novice league playing (which is totally fine) don't offer up tee times immediately after said league.

Course is in rough shape, lots of crab grass and dirt patches. The course has potential, but is a ways away from that right now.

Not good

Been many years since I’ve played this course. Terrible conditions; most (if not all) greens had burn out/bare spots and they obviously don’t send people out to fix ball marks on a regular basis. Fairways were average at best. Will not go back-way overpriced for the conditions and it’s a shame because it could be a nice course.

Killer cart paths.

Pot hole here and there fine, but they are everywhere. Huge pot holes, no excuse for that.
