Those two fine young fellows are Todd and J.T Hart, two of my playing partners recently at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park golf course. They travelled all the way from Louisville, along with Jason, just to play a round with the Travelling Golfer !
I didn’t disappoint them, as I showed my total package of shots: chili dips, tops, slices and a few nice shots thrown in just to keep ’em honest.
I actually parred holes 10 – 14 for the best 5 hole stretch of golf I’ve played this year, though that was only my fourth round. From the tips, this course is a monster, so those five straight pars were a real feat. Of course on the 15th, a par three of about 195 yards over a gorge, I quadrupled for a seven and gave away all the nice strokes I’d saved.
The only real redeeming part of my game was my putting, which was phenomenal, for me, since I’m not known as a great putter.
The golf course at Dale Hollow is in tremendous shape. The zoysia is coming in nicely and the greens rolled like a pool table on steroids !
All of Bruce’s fine staff was as nice as ever and showed us fellow Kentuckians just what southern hospiatality is all about.
The recent addition of a driving range and new clubhouse make this place a “must visit” golf course if you’re near south central Kentucky.
I did a rather lengthy review of Dale Hollow’s golf course about 2 years ago, so if you’d like to read it, just click that link.
In keeping with my soon to be added podcast, I’ll try to get back down there in a few weeks and get you a hole by hole audio review and post it here, so stay tuned !
