The Original Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley Site Since 1996


Paris Landing Golf Course

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 entire course is tree-lined, creating a feeling that you are the only one on the course, very rarely seeing another foursome. Several holes skirt the Kentucky Lake, producing a natural balance of rolling land, trees, and water. Through the years Paris Landing has hosted numerous collegiate and high school championships.

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. Hole #12 is a 586-yard, par 5 with an elevated green again overlooking the Kentucky Lake. The signature hole #4 is a downhill 186-yard par 3 with the Kentucky Lake providing a scenic backdrop.
