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."

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great course Course is in good shape. Layout is spectacular. Only complaint is that the bunkers are in rough shape with large rocks in them. It's a challenging course that is a great getaway and had incredible views. Best state park course in KY. October 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Memorable Play! Many "Signature Holes" on this course that will stick with you! Tees and Fairways were great, greens a little spotty and recovering from aeration, bunkers neglected, very scenic holes! October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is Golf The weather, the price, the courteous staff, the course conditions, the beautiful scenes of the lake! This is what GOLF is supposed to be like. (my score was ok). September 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best around Absolute nicest course in the west KY and it's not even close. Every hole is secluded and we never saw another golfer while playing September 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Always great views The hour and a half drive from Evansville was worth it. The course was in good shape and always challenging. August 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great fairways horrible greens Great course layout, beautiful fairways, excellent rough and manicured tee boxes. Unfortunately their greens were the worst I've played on this year. Several greens were completely lost of grass and resembled packed mud. Bunkers were all mainly washed out. It will take a good report on the condition of the greens for me to return. NOT recommended at this time. August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
