Actually this is an input from many long time ago golf course memories of Kenlake Golf Course. Some memories last a life-time. Take your kids golfing.

Oh, yes, I have such fond memories of playing golf with my Dad in Kentucky. He lived rather close to one of my favorite courses ever--Kenlake State Resort Golf Course in Hardin, Kentucky.

Built on the "hills of Kentucky" right next to Kentucky Lake, this sporty little course is quite the challenge. The first hole requires such precision...It's a par 3, and quite short, but as you stand atop the tee and look down (way down) at the small green, you know that you have to be very, very accurate! If not, your ball is gone into the woods or the rocks.

I remember one day when Allan, my Dad, and I played on a hot afternoon, and my 65 year-old father insisted that he wanted to walk. Allan and I were smart and took a cart. He pulled his walking cart up and down those hills and did not even "break a sweat"! What a guy!

This nine-hole course has 3 par four holes for men, and the rest are par three holes. For women and seniors, it has two par five holes, one par four, and the rest are par three. There are many huge trees, lots of rocks, little streams, plenty of wildlife, and abundant hills. It's fun, it's challenging, and even if you take a cart, it's quite a workout!

You need comfortable clothing, good golf shoes, a hat to protect from the sun, and all the golf equipment such as woods, irons (you use irons mostly since it's short), tees, balls, glove, shoes, and a cart.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level
