“Catered food just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

It is a beautiful place. I don't golf so cannot comment on that. I went there for a catered dinner. The food was an average catered affair. However, we had to meet for 1.5 hours prior to dinner. It was much too cramped for the number of people who attended.

“Great Golf and Surprisingly Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Thousand Oaks is a very well-maintained course with nice elevation changes and sloping, tree lined fairways. Very enjoyable and a good test of your golf game. The facility is top-notch in every respect. On the day we played a few weeks ago, the temperature reached 104. The ranger came around every 4 or 5 holes with chilled towels in a cooler for us and the cart girl also came by several times to be sure we had plenty of water and PowerAde.

At the bar after the round, the bartender convinced us to return for dinner that night. That was a good call! The restaurant really surprised us with its attentive service and gourmet selections, at very reasonable prices. The walleye topped with crab meat and the filet were perfect, what we would expect to see at a fine dining establishment here in Louisville, but at lower prices. Great view of the course as the sun set. We would definitely return here for dinner, whether playing golf or not. All in all a very enjoyable day of golf and dining.

“Feels like "Up North"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

This is a beautiful golf course which is very quiet and gives you the feeling of being "up north." It is very hilly and is kept in great shape.
The restaurant is very good also, and in the summer it is really fun to dine outside and watch people tee off on the first hole.
