My Old Kentucky Home is one of the most famous songs to have ever been written, but it is also the name of a hallowed and beautiful Kentucky farm with many rich layers of history waiting to be explored and experienced. My Old Kentucky Home is a marvel of elegance and charm, as architecturally magnificent today as it was more than two centuries ago. Your guided house by our costumed guides spans two floors of the mansion, originally named "Federal Hill." On select days, our talented guides will sing the song, "My Old Kentucky Home," for tour guests. See 170 year old antique artifacts including paintings, high-style furniture, lavish period decor, and the carefully curated interiors of Kentucky's most famous landmark.

Wesley provided the tour of the mansion at My Old Ky Home. Amazingly engaging, knowledgeable and a great singer! I am usually easily bored but he made this 45 minute tour a journey not a stuffy history lesson.

Situated in a quaint town with lots of charm and grace surrounding it. Named of course after Steven Foster of song writing fame.

The course was in very good shape. Trees for shade on several holes, the golf cart worked well and the pace of play was steady and even. Very reasonable price and would be a good course for all skill levels.

We had a great round here one afternoon. Played unrushed. Had the place nearly to ourselves save for a few of the locals (squirrels, ducks, woodchucks, deer).

Yes...take your time and visit them all. Kentucky has a lot to offer...not just bourbon, but that's a good start.
