Top 10 courses in Kentucky according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

Home of the 2008 Ryder Cup Matches, the last time the U.S. won the event, Kentucky is a big-time golf state thanks mostly to Valhalla Golf Club. But there are a lot of unsung publics in the state worth recognizing as well. The top 10 Kentucky golf courses showcase the top-rated plays, according to golfers themselves. The ranking was gathered using a combination of a course's overall and subcategory rating to find which courses are delivering the best overall experience to golfers.

Kentucky's top-rated course of the year, General Burnside Island State Park, received national accolades this year, rated in the top 25 friendliest and best conditioned courses of the 2015 according to reviews, which is quite a feat for a state park golf course.

In the land of bluegrass and Blueblood basketball, these were rated the finest courses in 2015:
