Sleepy Hollow is a hidden gem with lots of challenge and depth by any standard, but especially for a country golf course. The course was built on a family farm 50 years ago, and the pride of ownership shows through.

This is a semi-private course with affordable memberships and drop-ins for members of the public. It’s also really affordable for the quality of the course - $11 to walk nine or $30 for 18 holes with a cart. This course is very well maintained (especially the fairways) and isn’t frequently played since not everybody knows about it.

The course is light on hazards but it’s still challenging. There are 3 holes where water comes into play and one of these is a hidden water hazard. You’ll also find a few sand bunkers. The fairways are narrow and gently undulating. There are a few large trees on the course that add to the difficulty, but no dense tree lines. The course is set in between farmer’s fields, which makes for a unique setting.

There are a few things that could be improved at the course. First off, there isn’t a ranger which can lead to pace of play issues. You might encounter the owners coming onto the course and telling players to hurry up once in a while. It isn’t the most professional set-up in that way. The owners and staff can be hit or miss depending on the day. It would be nice to have consistently friendly service.

This is a great course to play on a weekday morning - avoid it on the weekend. It’s a very unique course given that it’s set in the countryside and yet is so well groomed and offers a sophisticated level of challenge. This course is definitely worth your while.

Reasonably large, open fairways and nice greens (except in late summer).
My favorite aspect of this course is the attitude. It is completely free of the pretentious attitude found at some local courses. Just a nice, laid back country golf course. I always have a great time.

Beware, on the 2 holes with water hazards near, it's easier to end up in the water than you may think.

Beautiful course, exceptionally maintained. Wide fairways with water coming into play on three holes and only a few bunkers give high handicappers/beginners a fair chance. Fairway grass, however, is the longest in the area and the rough is among the toughest, assuming you can even find your ball. Good value- as others have said, truly a hidden gem.

This is a great course that I've played all growing up. My only concern with this course is that they do not have a ranger to keep things moving along. With people trying to play 18 holes running into people starting their front 9 it can get jammed on weekends. In addition, I got stuck behind a "sixsome" and two groups of two that refused to join up. We were on pace to take 3 1/2 hours to play 9 holes!!!! I played 3 holes and went home and I won't be going back on a weekend again. However, if you go on a weekday afternoon, you may not see another person your entire round.

beautiful and well kept. A pleasure to walk this course, it's not too hilly but not too flat. Still great exercise and a great time!

Very nice

Great course for the money. Wish they had 18 holes but it still was great. They had new carts plus a hidden water hazard.. Won't tell you the hole. I will let you hit it for yourself.

Hidden treasure

I think I have found a new Sunday afternoon ritual! Beautiful golf course just off the beaten path. If you are in or near Oldham county and have a couple hours to kill, I would recommend this course.

Imaculately kept. It's not well known (best kept golf secret in the area) so it is not overplayed. The greens are in superb shape and undulating surfaces make for some challenging putts. Par is not necessarily a given when you hit greens in regulation.

Little course with big challenges

I only say little course because of it only being a 9 hole golf course, everything else about it is a big as any other course in the area. Nice family owned/operated course with a sense of what golf is all about. Very well maintained throughtout the year with nice fairways and challenging hazzards. Joy to play here anytime I get the change, recommend for anyone looking to play somewhere different.
