The course is in great shape even with all the rain the last few days. Greens were firm & rolled true.
First time here. Loved it! Challanging but I like it that way. I will return
Top 3 Course In Lexington Area
I love playing this course. Great variety in the type of holes. They have a range detector in every cart so you know your exact yardage every shot. Love it.
Very nice course and friendly staff
The course was recommended by some of the local golfers in Maysville - me being from Tennessee, wasn’t sure about that ~45 Minute drive to Paris - but after playing a round at this course - I couldn’t have gotten a better recommendation! Very nice course, well maintained and friendly staff made this a great outing!
Course is in good shape, greens are a little slow from normal. I don't know what they spend on maintenance, but it can't be a lot. They have better conditions than most courses their size, and I bet they don't do as many rounds as some of the others.
Thanks for the review! You may have caught us on a day that we were top dressing greens (we do this about every other week). This can cause them to be a tad slower the day of, but we do this so that we are able to keep our greens firmer, faster and healthier! We hope to see you out again soon!
Love this course!
I think Houston Oaks is one of the top 4-5 courses in the Central Kentucky area. It's challenging but fair. The greens roll true and fairly fast, but they also hold approach shots pretty well. I would recommend this course to anyone visiting Central Kentucky.
Beautiful course. Great layout
Overall great experience. Challenging, but doable.
Still in good shape.
Course is in good shape, greens still healing from dry ject. Putts rolled fine, with speeds close to 10
Same old course
If you've been here before you know that this course is always in good shape. Cold day, so I had the course to myself. Everything was in good shape, the greens have had dryject done to them. I would say they are 90% healed. They ran around 9 and smooth enough that no putts were changed because of the dryject. If we get some warm weather you probably won't be able to tell in 2 weeks.
I have played this course several times and it remains one of the better courses to play in central Ky. The greens are almost fully healed from the recent work on them. Plenty of water to play around and nice fairways to hit from. I will be back!
Course is well worth the drive. Layout is awesome, along with the course conditions. Staff is super friendly. Will definitively be back to play.
Houston Oaks has consistently been in great shape this entire year. I think it's the best value in Central Kentucky. Thanks.
Greens and fairways recently aerated and plugged which made play difficult especially on first nine holes. Staff was watering several of the holes which also affected play. Although this course has great potential our party would have chosen another option if we had known about recent maintenance.
Mmiller793, Thank you for the review. We strive to inform our golfers on course conditions before they come play. We apologize we failed to do this in your instance. We are expecting course conditions to be pristine this year and hope to have you back to experience the course the way it should be experienced.
The over all condition of this course was great. Carts are equipped with a great GPS system that gives you yardage’s to the hazards and the greens from your location on the course.
In my opinion, this course was way overpriced. I made a 3 hour drive to play this 4.5 star course and it was a disappointment. Layout was nothing grand and I’ve played courses that are much nicer for almost half the cost. If you’re traveling much of a distance just to play this course, Save your time and money.
Isaaclrhodes, Thank you for the review. We always strive for a great experience for our golfers. We hope that you give us another try in 2018 as we are very excited for what this year has to bring!
The course was challenging, particularly the back nine. Warmer than normal conditions existed and drained one's energy level. Perhaps the conditions led to groups ahead being slow and causing those behind to wait on every shot.
Course just off US68 (Paris Pike), If in Lexington area worthwhile to try this course.
