Great layout, well conditioned, very good price to play.

Reviewed October 13, 2012

Course is in great shape. Great layout - no two holes the same. Some blind shots but no danger lurking out of sight. The surroundings are beautiful as well. It can be windy and that adds to the challenge, but good shots are rewarded. Greens are fair and "readable". I'll be back.

Love this course. Challenging but fair. Almost always windy. Great greens.

Reviewed July 29, 2010

Great course for the money. Great fairways, whole course is very well maintained. Bunkers can be deep, most holes have risk reward shots. Greens are decent. Blind shots, plenty of hazards in play, overall a great course and one of the best golf values in Lexington area. Drawback is 30 miles south of Lexington in Richmond, KY but worth the drive if you have the time. Easy to get to via interstate 75

One of the best public courses in the state. Course difficulty increase significantly if played from longer tees.

sweet course, i could play everyday and not get tired of it.

Well this course wasn't that hard but the day that i played the wind played a huge factor and on most of the holes it was against you, but other than that it was very good course and not super hard.

one of the best course's for the money, very well maintained - great fairways, good greens,tough putting though. not a lot of trouble unless your hitting really lopsided.

Reviewed June 16, 2008

Best course for the price in this region. Greens are big and undulating - a real challenge. Well maintained and laidout. 18 holes in under 4 hours on a Saturday morning is another bonus. Really enjoyed it!

This is the BEST Golf Value for anyone in Southern Ontario, Western New York or any where from the Mid-Atlantic to the Mid-West of the United States. Jason and his Staff will make you feeel as if you are the most important group on the course. My Friends and I have made this an annual trip for the past 15 years and have never been disappointed. The course is a brilliant layout that will test every shot in your imagination. The course conditions have always been superb and the friendly staff make you want to buy a home in the area so that you can enjoy their company all year long.

We look forward to the next years visit the day we leave to come home.

I urge everyone to make this a MUST play visit.

This is by far one of the best courses for the price that I have even heard of. It was intimidating at first, but once I got over that, it played very well. The fairways and greens were perfect even after weeks of 90 plus degree weather. The only downfall is some of the fairways are pretty close to each other. This is only a problem if you hit as I do. (not very straight) Definitely will return for more rounds.

Reviewed August 10, 2006

This is one great bargain.

Gibson Bay is a great golfing destination with bent grass tees, fairways and greens. It is visually stunning and quite challenging and is a great bargain at least for out of town golfers.
