The golf course is going under construction on July 7th, switching over from Bent to Bermuda grass. Yes, this is an entire month later than expected due to circumstances out of our control with the growing of the Bermuda seedlings. On Wednesday, June 25 we will be closed to kill the fairways with roundup. We will reopen and the course will be playable up until the start of the seeding on July 7th. After the planting takes place we will be closed until grass begins to grow and we will be cart path only until further notice. I will keep you posted on golf course conditions via email and please don't hesitate to call and ask as we will be living day to day dependent on mother nature and the grass growing. ***With all this being said, beginning Thursday June 26th we will be offering discounted golf at the following rate until August 1st. On August 1st we will reevaluate golf course conditions and our rates.

FRANKFORT, Ky. – The challenge of taking kids fishing is that they want to catch fish. Parents have a better chance of making this happen during a series of special free fishing events for kids being held across the state on Saturday, June 7.
Many event locations will be specially stocked with fish to increase the odds of success. Some events feature free food and prizes for young anglers.
The events are a celebration of Kentucky’s free fishing weekend on June 7-8. Every year during the first full weekend of June, anglers do not need a fishing license or even a trout permit. Normally, people over the age of 15 must have a license to fish away from their property.
Normal size limits and creel limits for fish still apply during free fishing weekend, however.Kids angling for stocked fish at these special events don’t need fancy or expensive equipment.
Typically, all it takes is a red worm or a mealworm dangled underneath a bobber. At some events, loaner fishing equipment and even bait is available for free.
