What a fun course!

Played as a single once the frost/fog cleared. Keep the ball between the trees and the only thing that'll slow you down are the hills.

Conditions far exceeded my expectations for early November. Tees, greens, bunker were all excellent.

Staff was very friendly and helpful as well.

The layout is a challenging walk through the hills. Hole #7 is currently the wallpaper on my cell phone. Hole #9 is a tough short par 4 and #10 is an "easy" long par 4. Great combo.

Only thing I left "wanting" was a driving range to warm up.

We love playing here!

My wife & I have played this course when traveling to & from StL for over 20 years. We love the layout & the staff is always friendly & helpful. It’s challenging for sure, yet in a fun way. The greens are bent grass so putts a bit slower , however, they are in great shape.. Fun to play & pretty reasonably priced.

Very nice course

Loved having nice, playable bunkers at this course. The pace wasn’t the best due to 5 scramble groups ahead of us. Course could use some help pushing the pace on slower groups.

Beautiful Area

Kentucky Dam course was one of the best in a long while

I’ve played many courses around the country and this was a very good course.

The staff was very nice and the club house has the necessities

All parts of the course were in very good shape from tee boxes to greens

The bunkers had nice sand but hadn’t been raked that morning.

Greens were in very good shape. Many with two tiers and challenging slope.

Drives were mostly to open fairways with a few tight dog legs you could maneuver around with a good shot.

Approaches took a good shot to have a maleable putt on many.

Kentucky Fam was a great course, challenging and a good value.
