Golfers in the Commonwealth of Kentucky need to look no further than their state park system when looking for challenging and affordable golf opportunities. There are three state parks in the southwestern part of the state that could be packaged together as part of a Kentucky State Parks golf outing. Each of these parks has a bevy of lodging and dining options as well as plenty of things to do for the entire family. The Kentucky Dam Village Golf Course was designed by Perry Maxwell whose other designs include Southern Hills C.C. in Tulsa, OK, and Colonial C.C. in Fort Worth, TX - home to golf legend Ben Hogan. KDV is full of rolling hills, lush fairways, and well-undulated greens. There are several blind tee shots and a couple of blind approaches if you’re not in the proper position for such a shot. All 18 greens are elevated – some requiring at least one extra club. There are several memorable holes at KDV but none more so than the stretch from Number 7 to 10. Seven is a 130-yard par 3 over the only water on the course. The hole plays significantly downhill and is easily the most photographed on the course. Number 8 is a short 447-yard par 5 with a blind tee shot and a green that can be reached in two with back-to-back good shots. Number 9 is a 287-yard risk/reward par 4 with a very large tree on the right side that needs to be carried if you’re going for the green. The hole is best played with a hybrid or long iron short of the trap on the left and then an uphill pitch shot into the green. Number 10 is probably the most challenging hole on the golf course. It’s the longest par 4 on the course, playing 436 yards from an elevated tee box. A good drive will still require a long second shot uphill into an elevated green. Par is a good score here. Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park offers several lodging opportunities. You can stay in the 72-room Village Inn Lodge or one of 61 cottages. For larger groups, there’s the 14-room Village Green Inn, located next to the golf course. This 3-diamond resort also offers camping, boating, dining, and 1700 acres of breathtaking recreational opportunities. This is just one of the thirteen golf courses that are part of the Kentucky State Parks. They are all beautiful, well maintained, and staffed by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Most offer overnight accommodations as well as restaurants that serve great food in abundant portions.…
The two bedroom cottage we had was obviously very old but had been refurbished. It was very adequate and extremely clean. We did see a couple spiders at night so a pest treatment might be in order. The area was uncannily quiet. Would probably be busier and noisier in the summer. Definitely worth a return visit.
Our motorcoach group of 24 stayed here. Sadly it was just an overnight so we didn’t get to enjoy the lovely grounds etc. seemed to be understaffed but maybe just due to COVID-19. The rooms have exterior doors. Bottom level opens to water. Rooms a bit dated. Ours did not have any shampoo just bar soap. Our group had the plated breakfast-lots of food. But only 1 waitress in dining room.
We. stayed in the 3 bedroom house . The house was clean and was surprised to have tvs, especially in the bedrooms. The ac kept the basement rooms very chilly VS the first floor. We will try to get back there another time since we didn't get to all the places we wanted to visit.
We recently stayed for two nights at Ky Dam Village state park. We originally reserved the three bedroom cottage, we got there to find our cottage smelled like years of cigarette smoke build up, that after a few hours my husband and I started feeling sick. I am sensitive to cigarette smoke. Also the front door was very difficult to open and the back door did not lock. The cottage was very basic. No screens in the windows that I could open for fresh air. I called the desk about the smell and they upgraded us to an executive suite at no additional cost, number 303. 303 was very nice, spacious, no smell. Closer to the lake. Nice patio. Two baths, the second had two sinks with separate shower/toilet perfect for our two daughters. I did notice mouse droppings on the kitchen counter and on top of the refrigerator. Definitely pay the extra money and get an executive cottage. This cottage was a short walk to the marina where we rented a pontoon boat for the day. I would’ve expected the boat to be better cleaned when we arrived. There were dead May Flies all over the boat they tried to get them all off but we still had to wipe down the seats and knock down cobwebs. The boat was a little rough, small seat tears. But the lake was beautiful and we had so much fun we quickly forgot about the bugs. I would rent from them again.…
