About the Course

Golf Digest votes Dale Hollow #10 in 2017 in the state of Kentucky! 

Dale Hollow Lake has bent grass tees leading to zoysia fairways and large, undulating bent grass greens. The 61 bunkers are framed by zoysia. Most of the holes have moderate to severe elevation changes. Other course features include numerous rock outcroppings, small caves, springs, gorges, two ponds, and mountain views. Bring your camera, this is one of the most scenic courses in the country. Five sets of tees accommodate every level of player.

The practice range features three large zoysia tees and two target greens. Also available are two practice greens and a practice bunker.

The course and practice facility were designed by nationally acclaimed architect Brian Ault and opened for play in 2003. Golf Digest magazine consistently ranks Dale Hollow as one of the top 10 courses in Kentucky.
