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."

Mineral Mound wonderful views, very friendly staff, greens were a little rough but it's been a very hot dry summer. Easily the best course in western Kentucky. July 22, 2015
Excellant Course Great Value Disregarding the 4 jerks playing in front of us which turned a 4 hr round into 5hrs it was an enjoyable round of golf. The course was in excellent shape and demands many well placed shots to score well. The course staff should be commended for their good work. July 12, 2015
awesome course everything in great shape but bunkers needed some attention, very tight, I would suggest playing woods as a hazard even though there not marked as such July 7, 2015
Wow! got the hot deal for $10. They didn't give me any flack as was mentioned in another review so I bought a hat in the clubhouse just to give the course some money. There was only about 10 cars on the lot during a beautiful day so taking my time I made it around in about 3.5 hours. Tees, fairways and greens all excellent. The view from some of the tees were more daunting than the actual shot required. A few holes had severe doglegs but overall a very good layout. If you're in the area this is a must play. June 4, 2015
Punished for saving money! The course is very challenging , but unique and fun to play. Beautiful scenery , so be sure to take a camera. Only problem I had was staff treating us like a criminal for booking with golfnow. I understand the course doesn't receive payment for the hot deals from golfnow, but the management shouldn't treat you differently! Don't have this problem with other area courses. Just pay the full price at this course so you don't feel like you stole something . May 21, 2015
My favorite area course! This is a beautiful course with front nine carved through the forest and the back nine with views of Lake Barkley with several carries over lake bays. The staff here must work very hard to keep this course in such good condition. This has become the only western Kentucky State Park course I will travel to play. Unfortunately Kentucky state legislators do not care to take advantage of their state park golf courses to draw in out of state tourists or to encourage their own citizens to spend money in their home state.

The Mounds The course was in very good shape the greens were in excellent condition . May 13, 2015
Mineral Mound Excellent layout. Greens were fantastic, and VERY fast. Fairway grass going dormant this time of year but fairways were terrific. Nice scenery,.probably beautiful in early fall. Moderate difficulty,..must "manage" the course. Great experience. November 12, 2014
