Perfect day at the golf course.
8:00 tee time, arrived at 7:30 and was able to start immediately. First one on the course! Fairways are in excellent condition. Rough not too high but accuracy is a plus. Greens grass is in very good condition, but too many unrepaired ball marks. This is the disrespectful golfers problem, not the golf course. Otherwise, a good day.
First, the greens are bent grass. This area gets too hot for bent grass in the summer. Some of the greens had brown or barren areas on them.
Second, the greens looked like warzones! Apparently the majority of golfers who play here don't know what repairing your ball marks means! Greens were pock marked so badly they looked like the craters on the moon. Impossible to get a smooth roll to the cup!
Ok conditions but greens are getting heat stress I hope they don’t lose them. Fairways are dry and hard for zoyza
Fun course nice price
Love the course and can't beat it for the price. Greens a little rough but playable.
First time so was unfamiliar with layout. Course has challenging holes and we enjoyed it. The greens were a little rough. Looks like people didn't fix their ball makes. We'll play ghere again.
Staff was friendly
Course was in good shape, a few unique holes, if you don't know the layout a few holes can be confusing. Found myself in a little trouble a couple holes hitting the ball where I intended; however, it wasn't right for that hole. Well worth the effort to play.
Normally I would not play Drake Creek on a weekend because of slow play but this round was a particularly nice pace
1St time in Paducah
I was in the area for business and decided to try out Drake's Creek.
It was a interesting course to play that was in pretty good shape.
The greens overall were good and the fairways for the most part were in good shape also.
The only negative was having to wait a half hour to tee off when no one was there due to the fact I booked on Golfnow.
One of West Kentucky's best courses
All in all this a great, challenging, yet fun course to play. Course has always been in good condition and it's layout is pretty neat with quite a of water and some elevation changes. Very friendly staff and great food at the Patio Grill.
Please focus on your greens...
I've played this course on numerous occassions. Each time I've always wondered, "Why dont they take better care of the greens". This is a great, precision course. Regular price is upwards of $40. The greens don't justify having these prices. This is one of the most expensive courses in the area. Using GolfNow makes me feel better about playing there. I'm ok with paying $20 for a great course with so-so greens. But not $40. Please, focus on your greens...
First time playing the course, came up from Nashville for a tournament. Staff was very friendly. The course was in pretty good shape. Tee boxes & fairways were in fantastic shape. The greens weren't in the best of shape because previous players did not fix pitch marks & they were everywhere.The greens were very bumpy & fairly slow.
Will not return
Ive played this course a few times over the years and this was the last straw. Booked 18 holes and drove 45 minutes from my house to play here, get here on time and was told we'd have to play the back 9 twice because they had the front 9 closed. Stuff like this has happened 3 times to me now with this course. Also had several bad patches in fairways. And pace of play was slow, because everybody was on the back 9.
Drake Creek was in excellent shape and I forgot how challenging and fun this course can be.
I have played this course several times before and I think now is in optimal condition. The fairways are like carpet and the greens have recovered from the winter, they are not too fast or slow, they have the best grass.
Love playing this course
Always love playing this course. The tee boxes and fairways are second to none in the area. Greens were pretty bad, but thats what you get having bent grass around here. Was a very good day weather wise, so lots of people on course and pace of play was fairly slow. But would definitely recommend playing this course. Just wish the greens were in better shape.
The greens are in rough shape
This course is one of my favorites in Western Kentucky. Unfortunately, the greens, especially on the back nine, have fallen victim to the abundance of rain and heat we've had this summer. 7 greens on the back are basically lost at this point. The front is also spotty right now, but not lost. Other than the greens the course is in is typical great shape. Hopefully as the temps cool down the greens week be in much better shape. When they are decent I would highly recommend the course.
