Nice, gently rolling championship golf course with 3 large lakes providing water on 7 holes and the ultimate in high quality greens--Champion ultradwarf bermuda, which is replacing bentgrass in the South on many courses that desire bentgrass quality putting surfaces and bermuda heat tolerance. The ball rolls true and fast on Champion, just like excellent bentgrass greens. Tee boxes are zoysia and bermuda and we have 4 sets of tees on each hole. Fairways are primarily bermuda but zoysia was installed in places on six fairways in 2014.
George Davies, born in the British Isles not so many miles from the cradle of the game of golf itself, was the architect who laid out the original design of Paxton Park and supervised its building way back in 1939 and 1940. The course has had several significant renovations since that time but much of the original design is still intact.
Paxton Park recently finished as the favorite golf course in our regional area, for the third time in four years. We finished as the "Winner" in the "Favorite Golf Course" category in The Paducah Sun's 2016, 2014 and 2013 Annual Readers' Choice Awards. Paxton Park was the Runner-Up Finalist (2nd place) golf course in the 2012 survey, second only to The Country Club of Paducah. We are thankful to all the voters that voted Paxton Park their favorite golf course in our regional area.
Paxton Park is among the courses that were rated in the 2008-2009 edition of Golf Digest's "Best Places To Play". We are proud of the fact that Golf Digest readers evaluated our course in such a positive manner. It is quite an honor to be included on this listing and we are grateful for that. Paxton Park is the ONLY course in the area that renovates something every year and has for the last 10 years...our goal is to consistently provide a better product to our golfers.
