Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park Golf Course – Gorgeous!
On a recent trip to beautiful Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park, my husband Michael and I shot the 18 hole golf course. He used his clubs, I used my camera. After blistering him repeatedly on miniature golf courses, I’m no longer allowed to hold a golf club in my hands within 100 yards of him. Well, that’s how I tell the story anyway. Truth be told, there may be restraining orders against me on area mini golf courses. There may have been “incidences.” There may have been times when the ball didn’t go where I directed it to go … times when it didn’t even want to stay on the course.
But enough about my reign of terror. I want to tell you a little bit about Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park’s gorgeous golf course. It’s the longest 18-hole golf course in the Kentucky State Park system. Set in rolling hills, looming trees, rock formations, and ponds (several with sprinklers) – this is one spectacular looking golf course. You can read more about Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park’s golf course here, but I want to tell you about something that makes this course extra special: The world’s most beautiful driving range. Michael says it’s like hitting the ball into a green Grand Canyon.
Driving Range at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park’s Golf Course
Before his round, my husband hit the driving range. He told me all about the importance of having a golf course equipped with practice greens and a driving range (Dale Hollow has both, thank you very much). He described how it helps loosen you up and allows you to play better golf. He said he HATES driving to a golf course and having to “be ready” right on the first hole. Michael has a golf blog and has enjoyed the game all of his life. I”m convinced he was born with a scorecard in his hand. The man knows golf, inside and out. The fact that Dale Hollow is one of his absolute favorite places to golf tells me all I need to know about the course.
Apparently, the fact that Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park has a driving range is a huge deal. Gorgeous course, friendly staff, knowledgeable (and very friendly) golf pro, AND a driving range? I guess you know where you should play your next round of golf at: Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park!
Speaking of my golfing husband, which I can often be accused of doing, Michael will soon be adding a lot of Kentucky Golf Course Reviews to Genuine Kentucky. I’m really excited about that. Dale Hollow’s Golf Course will certainly be one of the first one’s he’ll review. He’s actually on another favorite golf course as I’m typing these words! He and a friend are golfing at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park today.
