In Good Shape

Kearney was in good shape all around -- greens, fairways, tees, rough all good. Gorgeous setting with the Fall colors.

Great Course

First time playing this course, never knew Lexington had a links course. I try to play a different course each time I visit home, and this course just moved up as my favorite.

Course layout has plenty of challenges for golfers of any skill level, big greens that also challenges your reading capabilities. I was paired with two guys that gave me the lay of the land, which was like having a personal caddie.

Really enjoyed the course, can't wait to play it again.

Simple request

Whoever is in charge of placing the tee markers. Turn the numbers towards the cart path. Ball marks on the greens, like everywhere are ridiculous. Fixing Ball marks should be taught at the clubhouse before every tee time. Golfers should be happy that they hit a green and take pride in fixing their mark.

A challenge

This is a well maintained course, staff was helpful and friendly. We got behind a 5 some and had to call the pro shop to help speed up play, they responded quickly and took care of the problem. This course is not what I call senior friendly many long par 4’s best to play up if your an older golfer imho.

Easily the best public course in central KY

Played early in the morning, paired with a walker. only groups ahead of us were two singles. We completed 18 in about three hours, without feeling like we were hurried.

The course was in great shape after recent rains broke drought conditions.

In my opinion it is the best public course in central Kentucky.

Hidden Gem

I golf all over the country and I must say Kearney is one of the nicest courses I’ve played. It is challenging yet rewarding. The greens roll true, fairways were perfectly manicured and the bunkers were maintained very well!!! You can score low on this course due to the forgiving landscape. I will definitely be back!!!!
