About the Course

Pennyrile Forest Golf CoursePennyrile Forest State Resort Park is surrounded by perhaps the most beautiful woods in western Kentucky.

Named for the tiny Pennyroyal plan found in the area, the park is the perfect back-to-nature hideaway in the midst of a secluded, lush forest. Pennyrile Forest State Park Golf Course was expanded to a full 18-holes in 2003. This rural course lies at the bottom of a small valley surrounded by rolling hills. The course is flat with a creek running through the middle and water comes into play on every hole of the front nine.

The new nine plays over gently rolling hills and through a pine forest. Hole #3, a 499-yard, par 5, requires a tee shot from a narrow chute with woods on the left side and the creek on the right. The fairway slopes toward the water hazard so hitting your tee shot straight is a necessity. Another creek must be crossed before you reach the green, which is severely sloped.

All of this and more make Pennyrile Forest State Resort a one-of-a-kind getaway for the whole family. Let nature refresh and renew your senses as the backdrop for your favorite pastimes.


Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park Golf Course features four tee boxes to challenge all skill levels.
