DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. – The golf course at Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park in western Kentucky will undergo a renovation during the fall and winter, Kentucky State Park officials announced today.


As a result, the course will be closed starting Sept. 25 and will reopen in the spring of 2016. The dry summer weather has been especially tough on the greens. The greens at the 18-hole course will be aerated and reseeded this fall.


Season passholders will be allowed to play at other nearby courses at Lake Barkley State Resort Park and Mineral Mounds State Park. They will be given a prorated pass for 2016.


Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park has a lodge, cottages, restaurant and hiking trails. The resort is 20 miles northwest of Hopkinsville on KY 109 N. From Interstate 69, exit at Dawson Springs and take KY 109 south.





The Kentucky State Park System is composed of 49 state parks plus an interstate park shared with Virginia. The Department of Parks, an agency of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, operates 17 resort parks with lodges -- more than any other state.
