For golfers that don’t mind a little drive, there are two Kentucky State Park courses that are close enough to make a quick, two-day trip; Wasioto Winds Golf Course at Pine Mountain State Resort Park and General Burnside Island Golf Course in Burnside Kentucky. The courses are less than two hours apart and if you include a stay at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, your drive to each course is about an hour.

At Wasioto Winds, the front nine is a lot tighter and requires several target golf shots. It’s especially challenging if you’ve never played the course before. There is a lot of roll and undulation in many of the fairways and several greens too. Over the first several holes, you get the idea that most of the trouble is on the left side. The water short of the green on the left on the first hole is reachable off the tee and the creek all down the left side on the second hole will help you keep the ball right. The 5th hole is a short par 5 – 434 yards from Tee 2 – but requires accuracy off the tee with water and wetlands on either side and an accurate layup shot into a narrow fairway with water left and the mountain on the right. Two good shots will leave a short pitch shot into a green that slopes right to left towards the water.

The back nine is more open and considerably longer than the front – over 400 yards from Tee 2. A lot of the difference in distance is made up on the par 5s, which both play over 500 yards. Wasioto Winds Golf Club offers some beautiful views from the elevated 12th tee box and the front tees of the 13th hole. The front nine is also a little different in that there are three par 5s, 3 par 4s, and 3 par threes.

Both of these courses are currently undergoing bunker renovations and are in the process of switching over to “Better Billy Bunker,” the best-draining bunker system in the golf industry. It may take a while for the installation to be complete but it’s well worth the wait.

For golfers that plan on playing multiple rounds of golf over the year at the Kentucky State Parks, you may want to consider purchasing a Trail Card which gives you access to many courses across the state within the Nation’s Finest Park System. A lot of these courses have been recognized nationally by Golf Digest. The Trail Card can be purchased at any of the Kentucky State Park courses.

don't know what the problem was in 2010 but today I'd rate this well better than the average muni. A good course with reasonable challenges, both fairways and greens in good shape. Tee boxes nice and level. Great scenery and the value thru the KY Park system/ golflink was great. Not a Hilton Head or Jekyll Island resort but not even half their costs.Best course in this area

I can't imagine why this course has been rated so highly by others in the past. True, it does have some great holes, and it lies in a pretty valley at the foot of Pine Mountain, but otherwise, it's weak. When we played, the course was in terrible condition. They had aerated the greens about 10 days ago, so I'm not giving them bad marks for green condition. The fairways, however, were filled with bare spots and weeds - very little grass. It was more advantageous to be in the rough. The tee boxes were mostly dirt with small patches of grass here and there. Add in a slow pace of play that yielded a five-hour round and the roar of US25E, a major four-lane highway within 100 yards of four greens, and it was not a very serene or pastoral experience. I played this course about 6 years ago and it was not in great condition then, but I gave them another chance, and it's in worse shape now. At $25, it can't be considered a rip-off, but I won't be back.
