This is a beautiful golf course on an island in the middle of Lake Cumberland. We played 18 one day and the next rented a boat to play on the lake. What a great long weekend!

I have played four of the 12 18-hole courses in the last three weeks. It is clear that these economic times have impacted the historically well kept Kentucky State Parks. At three of the courses the sand traps appear not to have been maintained for quite at least the better part of the spring and early summer golf season. The General Burnside Island State Park is the exception. While the course play somewhat shorter- 6,394 from the first tees and 6,032 from the second tees, the fairways which are watered and thick which helps the ball roll true. Greens are large and well watered for a public course. Pin placements are Kersey levers day. The course yardage markers and sprinkler heads are true, even though there are not yardage markers cards available. The four water stations were well maintained. State (university) employees also receive a $5 discount for each round. A great value.

The repairs on Wolf Creek Dam have taken their toll on Burnside Island. The lake is way down but still one can dock here. The pool has yet to be repaired and probably won't be. The golf course has been improved, but overall the park is still sad in comparison to its heyday.
