Kentucky Golf Packages - Affordable and Convenient

January 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

Kentucky, the Bluegrass State, is known for many things: bourbon, bluegrass music, and being "The Horse Capital of the World." At the center of this horse mecca is Lexington, where you will find heart-pounding Thoroughbred racing at Keeneland, the Kentucky Horse Park, and stunningly beautiful horse farms, some of which are available for tours. But the most underrated reason to visit Lexington, Kentucky is the golf! After one visit to play golf at the many spectacular Lexington golf courses, you'll wonder what took you so long in the first place. And because Lexington is located at the intersection of Interstates 64 & 75, it is within a day's drive of a large portion of the country, especially North Central states such as Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and even Canada!

Many of the top courses in the State are located in and around Lexington, so golfers can easily plan a vacation with the convenience of a short commute between these great golf courses. Lexington features nearly 15 courses conveniently accessed by the beltway that goes around Lexington, and a number of hotel choices are also close to the golf courses. Many of the local courses have bent grass fairways and greens, which is a cooler grass than most of the Bermuda courses found in the South. The resulting conditions from such a good climate are immaculate fairways with well-groomed putting surfaces. Avid golfers will love the various layouts and challenges they will get from golf courses in Lexington - expect phenomenal golf at an affordable price.

When the day of golf is winding down, and your hunger is on the rise, go satisfy your appetites at one of the nearly 600 area eating and drinking establishments. Lexington certainly offers every type of fare, but be sure to take in a local tradition such as a Kentucky Derby or a Kentucky Hot Brown. And on the subject of food and drink, Kentucky is very well known for their legendary distilleries that craft some of the world's finest bourbons. Within an hour drive from Lexington, one can visit a number of distilleries including Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Four Roses, Maker's Mark and more!

As for Lexington weather, you can expect four distinct seasons here. Average temps are: Spring 34-74F; Summer 61-86F; Fall 36-79F; Winter 23-54F. There are no prolonged periods of heat, cold, rain, snow or wind... so this means that it is not uncommon to play year round golf in Lexington!
