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.

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 .

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.

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.

I played this course about 15 years ago when I first picked up the game, and didn't really know what I was doing... After playing in Dallas (where I bow live) for the past few years, I didn't know what I'd be getting here other than a quick, cheap round.... And I was blown away. The course is beautiful and very challenging. While it's around 6,200 yds from the tips, it plays much longer. Definitely a shot makers course that rewards accuracy. I plan on playing everytime I am back in the area.
One note: I played as a single, and the course had some congestion... Bring a partner or foursome, and enjoy the views!

GREAT ROUND AT MINERAL MOUNDS
WE HAD A GREAT TIME. THE COURSE PLAYS HARD IF YOU DO NOT KEEP IT IN THE FAITWAYS. WE SAW LOTS OF WILD LIFE. SEVERAL SHOTS OVER WATER. LOTS OF SLOPPING FAIRWAYS. THE BUNKERS NEEDED A LITTLE CARE. THE FALL LEAVES WERE BEUTIFRAL. I HAVE PLAYED THERE BEFORE AND PLAN TO GO BACK. GREAT VALUE. NO DRIVING RANGE. FRIENDLY STAFF. EVERY HOLE WAS VISIONALY GREAT. OUR FOUR SOME WAS OF DIFFERENT ABILITIES BUT WE STILL HAD A GREAT TIME. tHE COURSE IS FUN FROM EVERY TEE STATION.

Not one and done
The first time to play for me and my pard-but it definitely will not be the last. A very challenging course with great fairways and greens. And the course cut into nature magnifies what God has given us.
