Maybe ran into this course on a bad day as it was cold and greens had been aerated a few weeks before but hadn't recovered yet. No houses which is a plus, but also no shortage of trains. Staff wasn't overly friendly, and lack of food/bar facilities was definitely a minus. Value at most of the courses in the area is outstanding, but we'll probably try another course in the Lexington area next year.

Layout of course is very good; condition of course more than acceptable. Could use more yardage markers.

This Pete and P.B. Dye designed course in Lexington, KY is a great course. The design is pleasing to the eye but also plays well, giving a good variety of layouts and required shots. It's techncially a 'links style' course, with an open layout and fescue grasses in the rough, with large and plentiful bunkers (as expected on a Dye course). The open layout does not make this an easy course as there are a number of subtle design elements that require good shots. Also, if you feel a light breeze in the parking lot, be prepared for a stiff wind on blow on the course. Water in play on several courses, but the number one hazard is the bunkers. This course is a must play for those that live within a 100 miles or so.
