Lexington Golf

Lexington, Kentucky, made history with the opening of Kentucky's first public golf course in 1927, and ever since then the city's booming golf scene has stayed both innovative and high-quality. In Lexington, golfers can find discount tee times at both parkland and links style golf courses designed by legendary golf architects like Pete Dye and Dr. Michael Hurdzan. While Louisville is home to the Kentucky Derby, Lexington, nicknamed "The Horse Capital of the World" has its fair share of horse racing that golfers can check out at the Keeneland Horse Racing Track as they wait for their tee time to start.
