From Our Editors
Ranked second on the Kentucky edition of Golf Digest's Best in State list, the golf course at The Falls Resort & Golf Club makes use of the 2,500-acre resort's size with a verdant layout of varied terrain and historic flavor. Architect Jody Kinney encapsulates the bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens with rough of pure Kentucky bluegrass, yielding a layout that incorporates elements of wooded parkland, open links-style design, and galleries of chirpy avian. The course ranges from 4,200 yards from the front tees up to 6,900 from the back, and players of all skills must negotiate with the land's lakes and rivers. Between shots, idle players can wonder at the simple beauty of flowers populating the landscaped areas between holes or prepare their putters for a jousting duel in case of a tie.
