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."

awesome course I have played 7 rounds here in the last 2weeks. Everywhere there was a bad place in the fairway they seeded and covered and now it's back. Greens are good as always and now the courses is drying out adding an extra challenge making it one of the best courses in the state July 22, 2014
Great Value I was surprised to find some very scenic holes around the lake. The fairways were a little chunky in spots. Overall, we were very pleased with the round. July 14, 2014
Great Layout, Fairways ARE SLOPED!!! Played here many times, and the fairways are not in the best shape on a few holes right now, but that is the case all over in this area. Greens are in excellent shape, probably rolling about an 11-11.5, maybe 12 on some, but they were very receptive to well-struck iron shots. Narrow driving holes(especially when you factor in the 45 degree slope of the fairways on a few). My rangefinder became my most prized club in my bag. Good course though, will be excellent when the fairways come all the way back. Not a course to walk, if you do, i really hope you have your will up to date! July 11, 2014
Outstanding Layout This is a Must play course in Western Kentucky. Exceptional layout, good condition. July 9, 2014
good condition Most courses in this area are having a hard time getting the fairways to come in. In fact most have gave up and took the position of if they do they do and if they dont they dont. Mineral Mounds is putting in the time and effort to try to revive them and it shows. By far the best conditions in this area. July 3, 2014
Great layout A little winter kill but ok the sand traps really need some attention had my best back 9 ever 35 even with a double b. July 1, 2014
great layout Enjoyable course to play. Great holes except for number 4. Greens and tees in great condition. Fairways are rough in places as with most all bermuda grass fairways in this area because of winter kill. They are trying to help them along and have sodded some areas. Sand traps have not been maintained properly.Good overall experience. June 29, 2014
challenging course Course is very tight, lots of doglegs, mostly left, lots of elevation changes, great scenery, faiways need to fill in, but fun to play May 26, 2014
