The best golf in Kentucky is now available at the 19 courses operated by the Kentucky Department of Parks. For 2010, the Kentucky Golf Trail is again offering a "trail card" that provides unlimited paid green fees for the cardholder.
The trail card fees will continue to include the daily play fee in the purchase price. The unlimited paid greens fee trail cards are sold at all state park golf courses and are valid through December 31, 2010. Cards start at $475 for senior players (62 and older).

General Burnside Island State Park near Somerset is a newly renovated course to the trail designed by Brian Ault. The course features zoysia fairways and tees with bent grass greens. The course measures 6,394 yards from the back tees and surrounded on an island by Lake Cumberland. Ault also designed Dale Hollow and Hidden Cove at Grayson Lake, both nationally recognized by Golf Digest.
Kentucky State Park resorts also feature lodges, cottages, campgrounds, restaurants and other activities such as hiking, swimming, boating and wildlife programs. For more information about the golf trail cards, Tees and Zzzs packages, gift cards and course photos, visit www.parks.ky.gov.
