Golf Course
Phone:731-641-4459 or 1-800-250-8614Open 7 days a week, closed on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve.

The Paris Landing State Park Golf Course is situated on the western shore of Kentucky Lake, located in the "Land Between the Lakes" area. The course opened in 1971. In 1994 Hole #12 was redesigned lengthening the hole by approximately 75 to 100 yards and relocating the green to include the vistas of the lake, while greens on Hole #7 and Hole #13 were rebuilt in 1996-1997. The entire course is tree-lined, creating a feeling that you are the only one of the course, very rarely seeing another foursome. Several holes skirt the Kentucky Lake producing a natural balance of rolling land, trees, and water. The Signature hole #4, is a downhill 186 yard Par 3 with the Kentucky Lake providing a scenic backdrop. Hole #12 is a 586-yard, Par 5 with an elevated green again overlooking the Kentucky Lake.

Since 1995 Golf Digest has awarded this course the 4 Star Award. Through the years Paris Landing has hosted numerous collegiate and high school championships. This picturesque course offers 4 set of tees ranging from 5,321 to 6,685 yards, offering all golfers an enjoyable but challenging round of golf.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 12 Good fishing near by
park review stars; one to five Nice park but camping sites are very unlevel, small and just grave. Difficult to get into some of the spots due to close trees and narrow roads. Handicap spots very nice.
May 31 revisiting soon
