The front nine at Sun Valley is traditional. If your handicap is low, your in business. Take your score from nine holes into the clubhouse, have a drink and a brat, then go home. The back nine is the exact opposite. Oddly positioned tees and “I think I cans”, will have you wondering where your score went before you cross back over Bethany Lane. Yes, it’s a goat path. Stay away from swamps and bunkers and you’ll be fine. If your a pro, pick another course. If your new to the game Sun Valley is your joint. This is a great course for showing an interested friend the game.

Stay away, stay far, far away. Is this the worst course in the state of Kentucky? Can't say as I haven't played all the courses in the state but I can say that it's the worst I have played. Would rather play The Crossings or even Maplehurst. Can't say anything positive about the course, layout, staff, bunkers, tee boxes, or anything else. I'm sure I won't be missed there but I won't be back.

Well I have played this course a lot, and have seen a lot of things I don't like but I have thing I do like to so here goes. Bunkers: CRAP, usually have water in them and they just are bad. Tee Area: You need a hammer for your tee, like playing on concrete. Fairway: Most are pretty damaged, but the entire course is really damaged.

Pretty decent course. The front nine and back nine are completely different designs. The front nine was built in the early 60's and the back nine was built in the 90's. The front nine is your typical municipal design. Flat with some tree lined fairways, very easy. The back nine is more modern. A whole lot of hazards to hit into. Water comes into play on every hole except for the 11th hole. Requires a lot of different shots and demands accuracy off of the tee. Fun course.
