Enjoyable Day

The weather was really good which made for a nice round, Tee boxes and fairways were very nice. Spots on the greens and areas around the greens looked like they had some sort of disease with no grass. Greens were slow and bumpy.. A little pricey for the condition of the greens and fringe.

Pastoral setting, historical surroundings

Lincoln Homestead is a challenging layout with rolling hills, small greens, and beautiful countryside. The course also intersects with history with log cabins connected to the Lincoln family. In the summer the course has plush Bermuda fairways and is well-maintained. The toughest part of the course are the par 3’s that demand length and accuracy. It is a real value and enjoyable golf experience!

Course is in great shape

Bermuda fairways are in great shape... there are some areas under repair on a couple holes, but overall really good fairways... rough is a challenge... bent grass greens were in good shape with good speed... enjoy playing this course.

Don't Forget -- It's 'Walk-Only' Right Now

Course is in terrific shape, greens pristine and true. A few spots without grass in front of a couple of greens, but otherwise the maintenance team deserves kudos. Bobby in the shop is really nice.

Don't forget tho, due to Covid, all State courses are currently 'walk-only', and Lincoln is a pretty good hike.

Otherwise, worth the drive to enjoy a round in the verdant rolling Kentucky hills.

Nice course

The course is in really good shape especially for this time of year. The pro shop is undergoing a major facelift and will be very nice when complete. Food and drinks are limited at this point.

They were punching the greens the day we played and they required everyone to play the back none twice. They were taking special steps to make sure the ones they were punching were as smooth as possible when they were done.

The course has plenty of trees along the fairways but is pretty wide open. The layout is simple with fairways running back and forth beside each other. The par threes play really long and there are a couple of blind shots but they play well.

It’s really a nice course and you should play it.

Nice little course

Lincoln Homestead is a nice little course that it state owned/run. To its credit, there is a lot of improvements underway that will raise the quality of the course in a short time. The clubhouse is currently under renovation but won’t affect your experience unless you’re looking for a full service grill. They are also putting a lot of effort into maintaining the greens and keeping the course mowed. The fairways run parallel but are tree lined for nice separation. Most affordable state run course and the Hot Deals make it supper affordable. Go play!
