I have been a member for over 20 years and play daily. This is not a flat, boring, easy course. It is challenging even when playing daily. The staff works hard and is very efficient while keeping costs reasonable for members and guests. It is the main reason that I have not moved from the area after retiring. Sand traps are probably the worst aspect of the course, but are off balanced by the new greens put in a few years ago and which are being well maintained. Course is playable even after verti-cutting and sanding of greens.

Greens are excellent, best in this area. Off course amenities are not an issue with me...went to course to play golf. And, pace of play at times slows; however, I'll also say that I'm impatient and want to play very fast...actually need to slow down.

Quite frankly I'm quite disappointed in your review. I'd be happy to discuss your experience with you to learn where you feel we need to improve. I've been the Director of Golf here the last 10 years and served as the Asst Supt for 10 years prior to that. Our reviews are consistently good, so this comes as somewhat as a surprise. Feel free to reach out to me at the golf shop.

Course was in very good shape. The front 9 is too tough for me to enjoy. Very steep hills & valleys. What could have been nice drives ended up short because of landing in these valleys, usually in a dry, rocky creek bed. Not my favorite course to play. Guess my skill level is not up to the challenge.

Over the last couple of years, the Miller Memorial staff has made this course one of the most beautiful courses in Western KY. The fairways and greens are in the best shape I've ever seen in my 13 years of playing there. The staff is always friendly.

I make sure every year to have my companies golf league and scramble at Miller as well.

I cannot recommend this course enough!

Have not played much golf in the hill country, but this was a great course. Maybe too much watering around the greens, as there was mud in front of most of them.

Over the past decade or so, I've played at Miller Memorial often (10ish times per year) because I absolutely love the course. The tee boxes, fairways and greens are ALWAYS in top-notch form. You will be hard-pressed to find another course in western KY with greens that are comparable to Miller. The only blemish you will find on the course this year are the bunkers which are mostly compacted mud that hold water terribly bad. My hope is that the staff has a plan in place to fix the bunker situation. The staff at Miller has always been friendly and accommodating and I have never gotten any grief from them when I book a Hot Deal tee time. A hot dog and a glass of lemonade are a must at the turn...trust me on that. Overall, Miller Memorial is a tremendous course that will satisfy your craving for a fun and challenging golf experience.

From the time you check in, until you complete the round, you will not find a better facility. Personnel, from the Pro to the staff, are all friendly, helpful, and just make the start of the round a pleasure.

The front is tighter, demanding accuracy, where the back is more open, but plays long.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone in the area.

As all mid south courses SHOULD be in August, Miller GC is in excellent condition after a wet summer. The greens are immaculate Bermuda and are smooth and fast but not unfairly fast. I really like playing at Miller despite the fact that I usually earn a rather large score on #5. That hole is certainly in my head! If you are a low handicapper, play the tips. You won't be disappointed in the challenge.

This course is not the best course around. I'm glad I booked it through golf now and paid 10.00 to play. The greens where VARY bumpy. When the ball rolled it looked like a basketball bouncing across the greens. If you get out of the far way forget finding your ball. It has some nice long driving holes. I will try it one more time but if it's this bad again it will be the last time I play. I am a weekend golfer and to me it was bad.

Daniel, I am quite surprised by your comments. As the Director of Golf at MMGC, I certainly welcome feedback. We did punch the greens not long before your visit hence a little bumpiness. The overall condition of the course this year has been excellent, as noted by other reviews. I'd encourage you to give us another chance, I'm confident you won't be disappointed.<br/> Thanks
