Best Course and Staff in the Central KY area

Ed and the rest of the staff at LTGC are the best. Course is in great shape and they continue to improve. Value is unmatched but the friendly environment is what makes LTGC the best around. LTCG is the only course worth spending money on in the area and we will continue to do so. Thanks for another great round of golf!

Social Distancing

It was nice to get out and play a round of golf.

I played by myself and finished in 3 hours. I took my time and sometimes played an extra shot.

I really like the layout on a number of holes. The course was in good shape for early spring. The greens were very good.

Hidden Gem

There aren't many folks that I know who have heard of or played LT. It's a favorite course of mine when I want to play somewhere outside the Louisville area. The only bad hole on the course is the first one, so you sort of get the ugly stuff out of the way quickly. The conditions are always good and the routing is really fun. It's a course that you need to think your way around, as many holes call for less than driver off the tee. I make the 45-minute drive to play it 4-5 times a year.

Great course at a great price!

Lincoln Trail is a fun course at a reasonable price. The layout is not terribly long but plenty of slope to challenge golfers. Fairways are coming In fairly well and the greens are in great shape. Clearly the best course in the local area. Highly recommend.

Don’t waste your time here

First off my wife wanted out of the house so I told her she could come to the course with me and just ride in the cart. The course charged me 10 dollars extra ( with all this corona virus stuff) then proceeded to be smart about it. I told them I’ve never had a course do that then the staff said we had to pay 6 grand for these carts how else we suppose to pay for them? I’ve never had that happen!
The course is a total dump and it’s not near worth the 30 bucks a rd they charge. The yards around the course have greener grass than the course itself. It’s another course not well maintained.
I had 2 foursomes in front of me getting wasted drunk, screaming a yelling constantly. No golf etiquette by the staff or players here. . I could be wrong but from the rudeness of everyone at the place I’ll never go back there.

Great staff and great round.

As dry as it has been the course is in great shape. My friend's shoe fell apart on the 8th hole. We played the 9th and went to the clubhouse to see if we could get a rain check for later. The guys in the clubhouse were great. They gave us a rain check for 9 holes. I love playing this course, and the staff is always excellent. Thanks guys.

Excellent Value for a Weekend Play

Course is in very good shape - greens excellent; fairways very good; rough a little spotty. The course has all you need to warm up, practice and play an enjoyable round. No traps, but enough water and trees to make it reasonably challenging. The 19th hole is there for after golf enjoyment.

Course is always improving and challenging

Love playing this course for the challenger. Staff are very friendly and always offer assistance with any issues you might have or need. Look forward to playing again in 2020 and see if i can tame this course.
