Really enjoyed this golf course. Nice wide landing areas on most holes. Well maintained bunkers and fairways. Nice risk/reward Par 5s. Greens were a bit slow, probably to keep them from burning in the July heat. I will return and highly recommend this course.

Very enjoyable to play. Good example of Maxwell's work. Very well maintained. Extremely good value at $40. I will definitely play more rounds here.

Surprised it isn't mentioned, but this course was designed by Perry Maxwell who was born in the area. Maxwell went on to design Southern Hills in Tulsa, a US Open site. My grandfather was the professional at this course in the 60s and 70s and pointed out many of Maxwell's design nuances over the years to me. It has lost some of its teeth as technology has shortened it, but it is a pleasure to play this historic gem for less than $40.

Good course-just dull

The course is kept in real good shape. Fairways are cut nice, greens are in terrific shape-the ball rolls wonderfully on them. My complaint is just in the layout, the holes are rather bland. No water to hit over anywhere but maybe one hole. There is some elevation changes due to the hilly terrain but other than that, not much to get excited about other than the condition the staff keeps the course in.

Worth a Play

Pretty good resort course, not too difficult with a few really good holes. No water to speak of, a few well-placed bunkers here and there. Probably better looking in mid season when fairway greens up. Greens OK.

Very playable average course!

There isn't much to say about this course. It is all of the things you would expect for an average course. It does have a very convienent location just off of I-24 at the KY Dam exit. The price is high for the quality of play. For the same price you can go to Mineral Mounds a couple of exits to the East on I-24 at the Eddyville exit. You can read the reviews on Mineral Mounds and choose for yourself. Ky Dam is still a decent course, just not the best.
