I really did not care for this course in the slightest, the greens were my major issue as they did not roll consistent from one place to the next. The course was a strange mix match of long and short, where many of the par 3's played well over 200 yds, and up to 250, but the course only featured a couple of par 4's over 400 yards and even had some par fives in the 450 range. Fairway conditions were decent, but the crabgrass teeboxes tended to make clean contact a luxury. All and all I'd play it again if I could get it really cheap or if I'm in the area and desperate, but not a place I'll go out of my way to play.

I enjoyed the course and will be back. If your looking for perfect fairways and cart paths then look elsewhere. If your like me and love to play for a reasonable price then it's hard to beat this course. The greens were in good shape. The fairways needed water but that didn't bother me. My only gripe is how busy this course was. We even had people yelling at us for taking to long when we were held up by the people in front of us.<br/> I'll play earlier in the morning on my next visit.

We have been playing Cassell Creek for several years and it has always been a great value for my son and I to get a round in on a fairly regular basis. The deal on Golf Now just makes it that much better. The course is in the best shape I think I have seen in several years. It is obvious the owners are putting money and time into keeping the course well maintained. We will continue to be customers at Cassell Creek every chance we get.

Not a "nice" course but fun. Took a friend there because he likes inexpensive courses. He described it as "country good" which was the perfect description. Lots of people playing wearing denim and t-shirts but "it is what it is." Excellent value with the Hot Deal ($15/person to ride 18 including all fees).

I always have a great time at this consistently maintained course. In this date, the blocks were re-positioned, but that didn't make a difference with the distance to green.

Wide-open fairways are generous to mis-hits, and the rough is easy for digging out. The course allows for a quick 9 or 18, and the staff is VERY courteous!

The course was packed with golfers on this outing, but we still had a great time and didn't feel pressured to speed up play.

Rates are some of the best!

Although the greens here are probably the best greens I've ever played on, the fairways and everything else about it is pretty bad. The fairways are so bad it's like playing in the rough for the entire round. I left after 2 hours of trying to find my ball and only doing 7 holes. It really was not a good course. The greens do not compensate for the fairways. Would not recommended coming here.

This is the 3rd time I've played this course, the 1st was bcuz I'm new to the area and it was close. The conditions were terrible, but I was told the conditions would improve, I tried again 5 weeks later, still bad. This time I waited over 2 months after perfect summer weather, hoping it would be decent, the greens were ok but very slow. The tee boxes were full of weeds and you had to tee your ball higher than normal to avoid the overgrowth, the fairway were nonexistent and blended in perfectly with the weed pasture this course is.<br/> I will use their driving range for my practice, but otherwise don't waste your time or money!

Owners went to Agriculture school at Kentucky Univ and know how to take care of the greens. Creek runs through several holes. No sand traps to deal with though. Better than playing where they are hard and never raked ! Food and Drinks very reasonable too. Surprise at the 18th hole to end the round. Was on my way to Lake Cumberland,enjoyed the day of golf, and then back on the road. Worth the detour just off of I-64 East. Thanks again to the owner for making me feel welcome. She was a pleasure to talk with.

The course was overbooked so my party was constantly hurried, even tho we had back to back tee times. The golf course was not groomed, some holes you couldn't tell the difference between fairway and rough. Grounds "crew" had loud pump going and would park next to green with truck and wait for you to putt, while loud pump was running. Cart paths were rough. Just not a well maintained course what so ever. 3rd bad experience at this course. My group will not be returning.

Playing solo, I finished in less than 3 hours. I had to wait on the 18 tee only, so no complaints about the pace of play. If you're looking to get a fast weekday round in, this is a good place. Greens are in great shape and consistent throughout the entire course! If you're on in regulation, birdies opportunities are frequent. Fairways are furry and need to be cut shorter. Tee boxes are furry as well. Not a single bunker on the course. It seems that basically a huge hay field was was turned into a golf course, so particular detail that is given to nicer courses is not given to this course. If you're trying to show out of town friends a nice course on a beautiful weekend, this is not the place to go. But if you're looking for a nice quick round during the week that is a good value just to get your golf fix, this is a good place.
