This peaceful setting on the shores of Lake Barkley is historically linked to the author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The property was once the farm of Willis B. Machen, grandfather of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald. It’s not hard to imagine the serene, Gatsby-style era from this park, with idyllic days of playing golf and cruising the lake. You need imagine no longer; the park now has a challenging 18-hole, par-72 golf course! The front 9 holes are situated in a wooded area and many of the back 9 holes are flanked by lake views. A pro shop offers rental carts, clubs and golf merchandise. The park also has a picnic area, a fishing pier and a boat ramp. Situated along the shores of Lake Barkley, Mineral Mound State Park Golf Course is a great place to spend the day and present a challenge to all level of players. The front 9 holes are situated in the native hills and forest area of historical Lyon County. The No. 4 hole offers long uphill shot making. The back 9 offers beautiful lake views with several holes flanked by water. The No. 11 plays over a lake inlet. The facility has a magnificent new golf shop that offers scenic views from atop a hill overlooking Lake Barkley. Public boat ramp and picnic areas are available to enjoy a day of relaxation and enjoyment. In 2009 Golf Digest magazine ranked the course #5 as the "Best Courses You Can Play."

The most beautiful course in our area. My friend had other plans so I decided to play alone. When I arrived I realized that I had been paired with two nice young men. The setting of the course is wonderful and it is in very good condition. My companions were helpful with information about hazards and I was able to score pretty well. I live about 45 miles away but it was well worth the trip. September 19, 2014
nice course with views First time at this course and loved it.The fairways were in very good shape and the greens were not to bad.they were very slow and a little bumpy making it hard to make a putt.The views were very nice with a lot of holes near lake barkley.Would definitely go back.

Rain really This course was in the best shape than any course I've played this year. Had a great time until the rain started on the 8th hole, can't wait to go back. September 1, 2014
Very good course with some great views Really enjoyed playing this course. Weather was HOT!! but course was in great condition. Could not have asked for better. August 27, 2014
Great Lake course The course was well designed with every hole presenting a new challenge. The course over looked the water on multiple holes making the course beautiful. The greens were in great shape. The fairways had a few missing spots but overall was in great condition. I loved the course and would recommend it to anyone. August 14, 2014
tough course Great course same rough spots in fairways, greens in good shape. August 4, 2014
Good, but not a must play Course is in pretty bad shape this year in spots. Lot of bad spots in fairways. Bunkers were in horrible shape. Great scenery and wildlife. Decent layout except for hole #4 which is borderline unfair and a few holes on the back nine which are nearly identical (dogleg left with fairway bunkers.) I wouldn't consider this a must play in western KY anymore like it used to be. July 27, 2014
Good course but not a must play Greens in great shape as usual with scenic views of the lake. Not the best layout on the back 9 with 3-4 holes nearly the exact same (dogleg left with 2-3 fairway bunkers.) #4 is borderline unfair. Snaked, narrow fairway that slopes into the woods on both sides. Fairway mostly in good shape, love the way the ball sits up. Bunkers are really an eye sore. Looks like they havent been attended to in weeks. Overall a good course but not a must play. July 26, 2014
