I played golf for fun........ So my goals were always to play tracks that excite me.
I second that thought.
I've been playing the same courses around home for years, played on a league at the same course for 20+ yrs.
So, when I look to travel to play golf, I'm looking for exciting courses that won't make me gag when I pay. The most I've paid was $150 at Arcadia Bluffs. Now I've learned that you can find decent pricing at very nice courses at almost any location.
Isn't the internet great!!
I've been traveling to Ky since "03. I've tried some courses other than the state park courses, and found that I enjoy the parks courses more. I have 4 different options I look at.
1. Eagle Ridge, Hidden Cove, Stonecrest. My favorite golf trip to Ky.
2. Dale Hollow, and lately, Burnside on the way there or back. Coming from I-75, I pass right by it. Stay at the lodge, fun golf!
3. Wasioto Winds and Woodlake in Tenn. Can often find warmer winter weather in the area. Another great setting for their lodge.
4. Lexington area. A couple hours less drive, and my 73 year old father can't walk the hilly courses at the state parks courses. He really liked Kearney.
I find the state park courses to be the most entertaining. I do need to get my ass over and try Mineral Mound, but what else in the area is worth traveling the 8 1/2 hr to play?
Looking forward to the rest of the results.
