Course Reviews


Course layout was ok, but nothng great. Greens were less than desirable, with a lot of unrepaired ball marks and fringe had patches of dead grass where the grass wasn't uniform presenting a problem chipping onto green. Fairways were absolutely HORRIBLE. Fairways had little grass and dirt looked dry and cracked, almost like cracked whale skin. Carts were restricted to cart-path and the rough only and couldn't even cross at 90 degrees. Many blind shots and distance markers were tough to find. Staff was less than friendly. On connecting fairways we saw a group playing as an eightsome, but no ranger ever addressed it and we quickly figured out why the round took so long. I would not come back to this course and would not recommend this to anyone!

Of the non-private courses in Northern Kentucky, Fox Run is hands down the best for the money. Best bet is to play after 2pm on Saturday to get the twilite rate. Most of us hackers pack onto the Willows, which is about the same cost, but is half the course and can take twice as long to get through.

OVERRATED!!! Sidehill lies, blind shots and landing areas that would be a challenge to Tiger. Almost any miss, no matter how small, results in punishment. The course is always in good shape and has some pretty holes, but is definately not designed for the average hacker.
