As you can probably already tell there are only 2 reviews of this course in the last two years. There probably hasn't been anyone that knows how to get on the internet play there in the last two years. You can't really call this place a golf course. They have 1 mower it runs all-day, greens look like someone ran a tractor over them, and the tee box's are just mowed squares cut really low with broken chunks of wood as markers.. Good luck finding your next hole as the holes aren't numbered and there are no cart paths..This play is like a desert with no sand.. It is close to a large lake yet there is no water. The only good thing is they will let you play for cheap...it's like a flea market..just ask to play for less and they will let you. Take my advice and save that cash just take a golfball and a 5 gal bucket into your backyard..grab your best friend and go hit a few..same grass, tee box's and green's. I have to say it was a good laugh though.. me and my friends still talk about this place like an old urban legend.. you'll never see another course like this one.. only in Kentucky.. You can't even give this place a grade as an F would prop it up.. The old lady in the clubhouse did cook a mean hotdog though.. it's that or a ham sandwich.. best part of this course.. get it with cheese..
The first poster below must own the place. :-) Overall, the course is very simple. You can hit driver just about anywhere. Literally. There are a few out-of-bounds, but most holes you could play from the wrong fairway and still get by. Some of the par threes have nice elevation changes and are hard to hit. Approach shots are usually at elevated, tiny greens, which is the only thing that makes scoring difficult. The greens are slow but in very good condition in the spring. There are no mature trees or sand bunkers to be found. It's a good course to practice your game on but I would not drive out of my way to play it.
Golf the Duvall ValleyI only have occasion to visit this course 1 or 2 times each year. I live in Indiana, and when I come down to KY to get away, Mountainview is my course of choice. The course is laid out on the side of a small mountain with beautiful, scenic views in all directions. The course is still maturing(it is only a few years old), but offers very challenging golf while being ever forgiving of the occasional stray shot. And if the golf itself was not enough, you will be greeted and treated with the down home comforts of the staff. Seems always a smiling face by the ladies in the clubhouse, along with the homecooked treats. I encourage any golfer to take advantage of this great links opportunity. Plan a trip or just stop in while passing through.
