A must play course!

The course is in great shape. The fairways and greens are all green, lush and well-manicured. The course is challenging with a lot of elevation changes from fairway to greens. Just the right amount of bunkers to make it interesting. Beautiful lake and woodland scenery all around. We saw turkey and deer the day we played. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Carts were in good shape. Nice driving range and practice green next to clubhouse. They have plenty of generous tee times available through GolfNow with good discounts. Yes, you want to play this course.

june vacation

The course proved to be exactly like I had been told. Long and tough. The tees, fairways and greens were all in very good condition. It had larger tee boxes and greens than most Ky courses I have played and they were all in excellent condition, I loved the large greens even though I did not put well. The only drawback, if there was one, was it was 96 degrees with a heat index over 100 degrees. All of the staff we met were very friendly and made our experience awesome.

One of the best KY State Park Courses

Really enjoyed this big bold course that was redone in the 90s I believe. Course had large receptive greens in perfect condition, plenty of strategic bunkering and large elevation changes creating many scenic golf holes.

Challenging but Fun Course

I found Gen Burnside Golf Course slightly challenging, but enjoyable. The only flat surface is on the tee box. Thank goodness for the well laid out asphalt cart paths, and my hat is off to whoever poured all that concrete! This is definitely a rolling, up and down hills course.
