Golfing in The Kentucky Wildlands

Tee off from the mountaintops, improve your drive on a course deep within a wooded forest or play an unhurried round amid the scenic natural surroundings at a state resort park. Enjoy breathtaking views of adjacent cloud-shrouded peaks while sinking a putt, test your skills on the natural rolling hills of an 18-hole course or become part of Kentucky’s golf legacy on a course dating back to 1899, all within the gorgeous Appalachian region of The Kentucky Wildlands. You’ll find nationally ranked, public, private and resort championship courses, as well as several at state parks with getaway packages that include overnight lodging, green fees, carts and more. In fact, some of Kentucky’s finest courses lie in The Kentucky Wildlands.
