Managed by Marriott Golf, the course at Griffin Gate Golf Club in Lexington was one of the first design projects completed by architect Rees Jones back in 1981.

The same architect returned to Griffin Gate in 2005 to complete a bunker renovation project, refurbishing the sand hazards using the Better Billy Bunker method.

Half a dozen bunkers were eliminated and the remaining seventy-five were rebuilt and reshaped for better drainage, reducing the overall course coverage from 133,000 to 80,000 square feet.

The course is routed across 250 acres of rolling bluegrass, featuring bentgrass tees and greens. Measuring 6,784 yards from the championship tees, the par 72 layout unusually boasts five par fives and five par threes.
