Barren River Lake State Resort Park is a water lovers' paradise surrounded by forested, rolling hills. The resort is located near Kentucky’s famous cave area, which includes Mammoth Cave National Park, the longest cave system in the world! The course at Barren River Lake State Resort Park offers a challenging test of golf in a relaxing setting. The course winds around hills and through valleys near the shore of Barren River Lake. 

The layout will test your course management skills. Accurate shots to well chosen positions are a must. This is a course that you can't play just once. But when you've finished #18, enjoy a fine dinner at the lodge, and partake in the many other amenities of the park.
