Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Kentucky
Course was in great shape, tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Greens were slow compared to what we normally play but they are in fantastic shape for late June and 90 degree heat.
Price was different than what app said
Had to pay more than what app said so something is a little fishy with that.
The staff wasn’t the most helpful especially since I was alone. He just sent me to the parking lot to “find some other single to pair with”. Didn’t find him, so I grabbed a cart and headed out. The course was beautiful! Very challenging for me and in overall just great shape. I will definitely be back!
First timer at this course
Friendly people in the pro shop.
Course is in good shape.
Big Blue Does Not Disappoint
I have now played both courses at the University Club. Big Blue is definitely the better of the 2. Not to discount Wildcat at all, but Big Blue has a nice look and a tough layout. Lots of water to deal with. Definitely a ball strikers course. Great times!!!
Big Blue Doesn’t Disappoint
Big Blue at the University Club of Kentucky is an excellent course. Tough design and plenty of water to keep you honest. One of my favorite so far in the Lexington area. This will become my home course.
I wish I could say this is the first time this has happened to me but it isn't . My buddy and I decided to play a quick 9 holes around 5:30. It had been raining all day but around 3:30 the sun came out and it was a nice day. We got to the course and we were the only ones there. When my buddy went in to play the lights were out in the pro shop (which they are usually turned off and the guy asked him if we would be quick. Very odd considering it was only 5:30.
Great course. Good value but the staff was very unfriendly. They had a 1:00 and 2:00 outing and at 8:00 in the morning the staff was too busy getting the carts out to help the groups that had early tee times. As a matter of fact they were telling us that the course was closed and we can’t play. We had to wait until the Pro showed up at 8:15 to get us our for a 8:28 booked time.
Need for course manager
Played this big blue course twice and both times pace of play was extremely slow. This last time we waited 20 min. to tee on next hole. It was a 5 1/2 hour day to play 18.
Booked a round for wife and I at the course just the night before. Course was in great shape and was a pleasure to play. Only negative was pace of play was not good. Waited at every tee box for at least 5 minutes but to put things in perspective we golfed 5 days in a row and it was the same way at each of the courses in Kentucky. I am certain that in other states that would not be the case.
Conditions are good
The course is in good shape, greens were punched a few weeks ago and have healed. Greens were close to 11 when I played. This is the best course in the area right now with the current conditions. This Club isn't private, it hasn't been for a few years, you should have zero problems getting on one of the two courses, provided they don't have an event booked.
The course has been softened the last few years through cutting back of native areas, Big Blue is much easier than it used to be, but is still a fair test of golf. You should have fun.
Big blue never disappoints . Great place to play. We played 36. 18 on the wildcat and 18 on big blue. Only complaint would be the grill or dining room. The girl working on Saturday was real rude and had not much of a clue on what was going on. The golf pros were great and very friendly.
The course is always in great shape for so early in the season.The staff are courteous and friendly.The pace of play was excellent. Very enjoyable day.
Big Blue Great
Course was in great shape with well manacured fairways and graduated rough. One of the best courses I’ve played this year. The greens were very fast and firm, but a well struck shot would still bite. It has been several years since I played this course and there have been some changes made to a few holes. I look forward to playing it again soon.
it by far my favorite art hills designe courses to play a bunch of us guys go down every year from michigan at the of march or first week in april
Challenging back side
Great deal for money. Warm day in Feb with a bit of wind.
Back side challenges you on most every hole with good elevation changes for the area.
Need to drive the ball more than 250 if playing tips.
Adam is a great host!
