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!

Good shape

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.
