I've played Kenton County Golf Courses for years. I thought the course was in great shape and the greens were lighting fast. Best they've been in a long while. Look forward to more rounds there this year.

I grew up on this course. It's a good, fun course and is well maintained. There's a fair amount of hacks on this course along with those who think they should be on the tour, so if you think you're in the latter, maybe try the Willows or Fox Run.
