If you're playing golf in the Paducah area this is by far your best option. The Zoysia fairways are the best you can play on anywhere. The greens are healthy. The tees are perfect. Drake Creek has a fantastic proshop too. The green fee prices are so low that the entire experience is an amazing value. Play Drake Creek before you play any other area courses because you'll want to go back.

This is a good course but not great. It sure has a lot of potential. Some of the fairways have sink holes over the irrigation lines that are near unplayable and should be fixed. The bunkers were nice but not dressed, they had old wash-outs in them that appear to have been several days old. The greens and aprons were only average at best. The staff I encountered were professional but not outgoing/friendly. After reading the other reviews about Drake Creek I was disappointed but it was not a bad experience.

What a gem. Not difficult if you avoid the water. Rolling fairways where the ball sits up like its on a tee. Great greens with some undulation. 2 out of character holes (wooded dog legs) but everything else was immaculate and fairly wide open. Wish i had played here the first day instead of the last day of my trip. Can't wait to go back next year.

Great Course! Great Price!

This course is a real value. This links style course is perfectly maintained and plays great year round. Seated along the Ohio River you are sure to experience wildlife and lot's of water hazards along with a great view. A good wind coming off of the river can make this course a real challenge. You must play this course honestly or it WILL bite you. The pricing is great at around $25.00 bucks for 18 holes. This is one of the top 2 courses in West Kentucky and a great value!

an excellent course to play if your in the area. tim and the men on maintenance really put forth a stellar effort to keep this course looking in tip top condition. this is a championship course that has hosted college and highschool state and conference tournaments. set right on the ohio river the course can play as hard or as easy as you want it with 4 sets of tees at every hole. the bent grass greens run nice and smooth at any time of day. the club house features a good knowledable staff. tod butts is a great teacher with an enormous driving range and putting green to use at his discretion. it really is a must play
