Thoroughbred Golf Club at High Point, originally named High Point Golf Club, is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
Thoroughbred Golf Course opened in 1993. The course was designed by Daniel McQueen and Albert England.

Watch out for # 5, a 438-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Highpoint Golf Club is # 2, the 130 yard par-3.
The World Famous Taylor Made Farm is just across the street offering views of beautiful thoroughbred horses playing in the fields.
The course has wide open fairways and a few undulating greens. In addition, water hazards come into play on four holes. The signature hole is #5, requiring a tee shot to a peninsula fairway, then an approach shot over water to a large, well-bunkered green.
The golf course is built in a subdivision of 44 upscale homes. The golf course owns 5 acres of land that contains the parking lot, a tobacco barn that serves as the pro shop and cart shed, a driving range, a putting green, and an equipment shed. Each homeowner owns 5 acres of land. One acre of each parcel is designated for the building of a private home. The other four acres of each parcel is given to the golf course in a perpetual easement. Therefore, the golf course is built on 156 acres of perpetual easement. The homeowners have "no say" in the management of the golf course or any legal right to prohibit the building of any structures on the easement. The use of the easement is entirely up to the golf course owner until there ceases to be a golf course on the property for ten years. At that time, control of the four acres/parcel returns to each homeowner. This type of agreement protects the homeowners. There is a homeowners' association, and the golf course is not required to be a member or abide by general homeowner rules. However, the present owners have voluntarily paid homeowner association dues.
The maintenance of the border of the golf course, including the fences, is the responsibility of the homeowners' association. The same is true for all roads within the subdivision.

Nice course for the price. Decent fairways, greens in great shape. A good place to play a round of golf.
