The day after I played Dale Hollow’s golf course and made a video for them, I got the chance to do the same for the friendly people at General Burnside Island State Park’s golf course.
I have now found another must play golf course in the Kentucky State Park system.
This is what hilly, mountain golf is supposed to feel like.
Tremendously manicured fairways, silky smooth greens, mower tracks, playable rough, etc, etc.
Mountain vista’s, more color in the trees that ought to be legal, friendly people in the Pro Shop and on the course and Sonny’s BBQ in Somerset just a few minutes away!
We got there about 7:30 or 8 AM and the sun had not even gotten over the hills yet, the fairways were wet with dew and the air was a perfect temperature.
The fairways are generous and the greens are big. The whole setup is designed to be playable, enjoyable and memorable … and it was!
You really need to head over to the Somerset area of Kentucky and play this jewel. Brian Ault redesigned it and the State of Kentucky spent their dollars wisely, as this is a golf course that will draw golfers from far, far away.
The people of Somerset are very friendly, the lodging is very reasonable and the area lends itself to being a traveller’s delight.
I’m not word worthy of this fine golf course, so hopefully the video I made for you will entice you to coming’ by … and tell ’em Mike sent you!
