One of Best Kentucky State Park Courses

Course is one of the best if not the best Kentucky State Park Course. Course is a haul to get to and not really around much. However, based on the rolling terrain and solid layout it is worth the effort to get there.

Always a great round

Hands down my favorite course in the area. If it was any closer to a big city it would be impossible to get on. Always a challenge but never because of the course conditions. Staff is always hospitable.

Beautiful Place

Dale Hollow is one of Kentucky's State Parks Gems.
Well designed and very challenging. The course design requires you to hit every club and shot type in your arsenal. Course was in perfect condition. They do have some bunkers they are getting ready to redo but we were told in the pro shop that those were considered ground under repair. Staff was awesome and very helpful. Price is a super bargain. will be back as soon as possible

Great course.

This is a great challenging course. Sand traps that have been renovated look great . The other sand traps are not playable. Maybe they will get the others renovated soon. Other than that this is my favorite course in the central KY area.

Great fairways and greens

Great fairways, tee boxes, and greens rolled true even if they were a little slow. Unfortunately this Course's biggest problem is keeping up fairway bunkers. I am afraid like many courses in the area, the underestimated what it took to properly keep up so many bunkers especially on a course with this much elevation change from tee to green. Staff was great and other than being behind a slow twosome who obviously didn’t know the concept of letting faster players go through, it was a great day on a good course.

Great Course

Once again, Dale Hollow Golf Course did not disappoint. Even with a 15 minute downpour at the beginning of round, still enjoyed this course. Greens were in great shape (a little slow after the rain) fairways were great. Only negative are the bunkers, but a lot of courses have bunkers that need work after going through pandemic. This course is a little over 2 hours from my home, but well worth the drive. I will always keep going back.
