Old Silo's picturesque, 18-hole, par 72 course keeps the hallowed hole-game lively for debutante duffers and grizzled golfers alike with four sets of tees.

Old Silo Golf Course & Restaurant
Though Old Silo Restaurant smokes all of its meat in house, it might be more apt to say that they do it on the green. The dining room—part of the golf course's 6,000-square foot clubhouse—connects to a back deck, where diners can take in the bluegrass landscape along with their meals.
This scenic perch embraces its Kentucky roots with a menu of country entrees. Barbecue is a mainstay, and the chefs' special sauce decorates ribs, chicken, and pulled pork. Dinner dishes include fresh-cut steaks and fried catfish, as well as the "Love me Tender" platter: homemade breaded chicken tenders served Buffalo-style or with secret Old Silo sauce, made inside the Old Silo's adjacent Old Alchemy Chamber. As the kitchen preps these plates from scratch, players conquer the 18-hole course outside, exploring lush fairways to a burbling soundtrack from Somerset Creek.
