John James Audubon State Park is located just south of the Ohio river in western Kentucky. The park preserves the peaceful woods where John James Audubon walked as he studied the subjects of his paintings.

This traditionally designed course is located in a park. The course was cut out of the woods and has heavily tree-lined fairways. The signature hole is #1, a 331-yard, par 4, which sits atop the second-highest hill in Henderson County. A full-service pro shop, golf cars, pull carts, and clubs are available.
