100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES
1 / 4
“This is a very nice course in the rolling hills of Kentucky. It has a nice variety of holes with woods and lakes used strategically in the hole routing. The finishing holes on each nine are challenging due to their length and water that comes into play."
2 / 4
“Long and interesting. A mixture of horse country and nice houses. Some water and bunkers with good greens. It's a PGA Tour stop now so that adds extra interest."
3 / 4
“Great layout. One of Arthur Hills' best designs, especially the green complexes."
4 / 4
“This course has been up and down over the years with some financial problems, but I believe it is one of the better course designs in Kentucky. Just on the outskirts of Lexington in a growing community, Champions is going to be featured this year on the PGA tour in an opposite field event to the British Open. The course has bent grass fairways and greens that are now in great condition. The practice area is very good and the bar is just a great place to hang out.
Their are some notable holes on the course that feature water carries that are long. The holes near the clubhouse have a lake that is featured on all the holes. The par three over the water with a brick retaining wall is spectacular with no place to bail out. You need to hit quality shots on this course to score. It is a great place to play golf."
