Kerry Landing Golf Course
This course blends trees & rolling terrain. Each hole is unique & many holes have tree lined fairways. The course is well bunkered & features several lakes. Par: 72 Yardage: 6,645/5,628

The course was designed to fully capture the site's natural topography and features.... The course is well bunkered and features several lakes and waterways which will offer distinct risk-reward golf approach shots, creating a highly desirable golf experience".Mature trees, ponds and King creek add to difficulty. Numerous sand bunkers are also in play. Kerry Landing, located in the Kentucky Lake Region of Western Kentucky is conveniently located for much of the Midwest. With trees lining each side of the fairway, accuracy on the tee shot is a must on this par 5. Reachable in two shots by the longer hitters, the second shot should favor the right side of the fairway to avoid the deep-faced bunker guarding the left front portion of the green. A good opening hole, not extremely difficult, but challenging.
