Opened January 2000, this par-72, 6,748-yard course was designed by Gordy Lewis, evoking an equestrian theme. Situated in a large Pulte home development and graced with boulevards, lovely plantings and pleasant landscaping, Lexington Oaks draws you into Kentucky horse country with its white-stable fences and racetrack themes. The course winds like a steeplechase through woods, marshland and water (on 15 holes). Bunkers adorn elevated, massive greens. The 18th hole—a 498-yard par-5 finisher—doesn’t let you forget just how big: the green, 62 yards wide, could house a paddock of six Kentucky Derby winners.
