FRANKFORT, Ky. – Two Kentucky State Parks golf courses are ranked among the top 10 courses in Kentucky for 2013-2014, according to Golf Digest magazine.
Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park in Burkesville had the No. 7 course, and Eagle Ridge at Yatesville Lake State Park near Louisa had the No. 10 course. They were the only two public courses listed among the top 10 in Kentucky.
“This is recognition of the excellent golf we offer our customers and the great staff we have at our courses,” Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker said. “We have many excellent courses, and it’s gratifying to see two of them on this list.”
Golf Digest ranked courses on criteria such as course design, aesthetics, and scoring difficulty.
The Kentucky State Parks have 18 courses across the state.
Kentucky State Parks also feature two golf packages for guests: the Chip Shot and the all-inclusive Tees & Zzzs. The Chip Shot package includes 18 holes of golf with cart and lodging. The popular Tees & Zzzs features golf with cart, lodging, breakfast and dinner, plus a gift card.
