New Golf Facilities At Dale Hollow Golf Course

New Dale Hollow Golf Course Proshop

A little over a year ago, I wrote a post about Dale Hollow State resort Park’s fabulous golf course.

There’s been a few changes since then and they’re all for the better.

First off, my buddies Bruce and Kent have a new Pro Shop and the driving range is very near completion.

Every time I call or come down, they remember your name and are friendly beyond belief.

I got there a little early on Monday, April 30th, so Bruce could show me his new digs and then let me tour the driving range.

 

New Driving Range Dale Hollow Golf Course

The Pro Shop is a fantastic and welcome addition and Branscum Construction of Russell Springs did a great job on the project.

The driving range will be one of the best in the state when it opens in a few days, as the zoysia makes the ball sit up just like it’s on a tee, the same as their great fairways out on the course. I didn’t get one bad lie in 18 holes and the tee boxes are better than some greens I’ve played this year.

Speaking of greens, these were in very good shape considering that it was still April. No surprises on the speed and in great shape after some sand and top dressing in the not too distant past.

 

Hole 14 Dale Hollow State Resort Park Golf Course

This view from one of the forward tees on #14 is deceiving. From my back tee, I hit a hard 13 degree 3-wood to clear the lake, yet keep it in the fairway. Then I hit a hybrid 3 iron from 197 and hit the green before two putting for birdie.

Every time I make the 3 hour drive (each way) to come down and play, I’m rewarded with some deer running across the fairway and it happened again on this hole, while my second shot was in the air. This course is way yonder out there in the boonies and you’ll see raccoons, deer and a million squirrels.

You’ll also be mesmerized by the fine conditions, the very reasonable rates and the extremely friendly staff.

Whether you come down to see the new Pro Shop, the mountain view driving range, the wildlife or just to talk to Bruce and Kent, you won’t be disappointed.

I’ll be going back in a few weeks, after the range opens and I’ll get you a full report on that.

If you’ve played Dale Hollow’s great golf course and would like to add your opinions, just use the comment feature on this post or email me and I’ll post it for you … pictures and all.

Click thru to the golf course home page and give Bruce or Kent a call and set up a tee time and tell ’em Mike sent you.

If you’re going to stay overnite, make sure to check out the Tee’s & Zzzz’s Package, which will get you a great room and the lodge has one of the best Black & Bleu salads you’ll ever find.
