2017 was a wonderful year to play golf at this course! I enjoyed several rounds with the ladies. The cart paths are new making for a smooth ride in gasoline carts - no waiting on carts to charge. Lots of wooded areas had been cut and trees trimmed. WOW, the sand was new and lots of it in the traps. The course played so well and was extremely manicured. I commend the staff and grounds crew on a job well done. Looking forward to 2018 golf at this course.

Things have changed since the earlier glowing reviews were written. When we played today, the tees were gouged out, the fairways featured many, many dead and bare spots and the bunkers were compacted dirt, not sand. The greens were the only part of the course in acceptable condition. Beyond that, the course is like two different nines: the front nine is through wide-open meadows with very few trees. The back nine is squeezed into very hilly, heavily treed ground between massive homes and features blind tees shots on several holes and blind approach shots on several others. Locals familiar with the layout no doubt understand how to play the course, but it can be very frustrating for newcomers. Gibson Bay in nearby Richmond is prettier, in better condition, and more fun to play.

Can be a little pricey, but worth it. Beautiful course, quite challenging. Great greens and fairways. One of the best in Kentucky.

Wow. I was very impressed by the quality of this course, hidden away in Richmond, Kentucky. I lived in Lexington for 7 years and finally played The Bull after moving to Louisville. I really missed out. Course is kept in great condition. It can be difficult but if you are driving the ball well you can go low.

Need to play it again - my first experience clouded by the 5+ hours it took to play on a Saturday.

A must play course in central Kentucky. Every hole is beautiful and well maintained and the layout leaves little to be desired.

This is one of the best golf courses in Kentucky. The layout is excelent with the shape of the course in top notch. The fairways are in flawless conditon. I recomend you get a cart for this one, it is a long course. I like this becuase it feels like each hole is off on its own, not touching other fairways on other holes. I must agree with a previous readers review " You need to play this course". The staff is also great, if you ask them about any hole on the course or any info you need on the course they will give it to you. The staff really knows teh course well.

I think that it could be a little lower on price, but it is a beautiful and fun course to play. Love the location and layout of the course.

Very well kept course. The only problems I could find would be the location and the price. Other than that I love it.

The Bull

The bull is a very nice golf course. The all over bent grass greens, fairways, and tee boxes allow for a very nice playing surface. There are a few challenging holes but over all a beautiful and well kept golf course. Everybody deserves to try this course at least once. Im sure you will be saying the same.
