The famous golf course designer Perry Maxwell, known for using the natural architecture of the landscape, designed our 18-hole Kentucky Dam Village golf course. The landscaping features unmatched healthy fairways and beautifully maintained greens. The Village Green Lodge, located near the golf course includes 14 inside-entry rooms, a front porch, and a spacious back deck.
