Description: Venue for the US Amateur Public Links Championship in 1997, Kearney Hill Golf Links in northwest Lafayette County is a Pete and PB Dye layout that debuted in 1989. Rating: 4 out of 6 Reviews: 1

Finding a day to play this course on a day where there aren't at least 20MPH winds is a rare feat. Pete Dye knew this going in, and routed this course in a fashion that usually has the longer holes playing downwind, and the shorter holes playing into the wind. Kearney is fun in that you get a good variety of golf from links, to parkland, to tree-lined at a different stretch somewhere along the way. Some holes are classic Pete Dye in that they're sadistic, namely #16 to me, which is a Par 4 with water all along the left side and 2 trees that guard the green for anyone who bails out right. 3 times I've played it and never once avoided the water. It's the best course in Lexington for sure, and a Top 5 public course in Kentucky. It's not the strongest state for boasting excellent golf courses, but Kearney Hill is a good highlight for Kentucky golf.
