News and Updates
GPS UNITS ON ALL RENTAL CARTS
We have a nice cart fleet of four wheel electric E-Z-Go carts with tops, windshields and raincovers. We installed GPS units on each cart to help players with distance, and be careful... because it will spoil you when you go places without GPS. Paxton Park is the only golf course in our area to offer this to our patrons. It adds more enjoyment to your experience at Paxton Park and speeds up play.
SPECIAL THANKS TO PEPSI AND HARRY CRISP;
SUPER VALU, BURTON and HB BANKS; and the PAXTON FAMILY
We want to let the Community know that Burton and HB Banks and Super Valu, Cash Saver Grocery, Mr. Harry Crisp and Pepsi, and the Edwin J. Paxton Family Foundation (discussed below) have gone "above and beyond" to help this facility. The Banks family and Mr. Crisp have elevated the Pepsi/Super Valu sponsorship of the Cobb. The Banks family and Super Valu have also taken on the sponsorship of the Charity Event To Benefit Paxton Park which has featured PGA Tour Professionals Russ Cochran and Kenny Perry each of the last 10 years. This Charity Event has been one of the primary funding sources making possible the renovation efforts at this facility.
The Edwin J. Paxton Family Foundation, as well as various members of the Paxton family, have provided significant funding for much needed infrastructure improvements over the past years including including the lake installation which has significantly enhanced our ability to irrigate the course more efficiently... and looks beautiful.
We really appreciate what the Banks family, Mr. Crisp, Pepsi and Super Valu, and the Paxton Foundation and Paxton family have done for not only Paxton Park, but also for the many other things they do for our Community.

Thank you for your consideration.
Edwin J. Paxton Park was included in the 2008-2009 edition of Golf Digest's "Best Places To Play" for the first time ever. This is quite an honor. We are grateful to the Golf Digest readers who evaluated the Park in such a positive manner and we are very thankful to the many folks who helped make the renovations possible that led to this honor.
Paxton Park was also voted the 2nd most popular golf course, right behind Paducah Country Club, in the 2012 Paducah Sun's Readers Choice Awards.
It would not have been possible without the help of Kenny Perry, Russ Cochran, Burton Banks, Freddie Sanders, Mark Page, Super Valu, The Paxton Foundation, City of Paducah, Keith Murt, West Kentucky Trade Unions, and each person who participated in the Super Valu Golf Scramble to Benefit Paxton Park each year it has been held, and the many folks who have purchased memorial brick pavers. There are so many people who have helped make this Community facility better, we cannot possibly list them all ... but we are thankful for your help. YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE!
Special recognition goes out to our golf course maintenance crew who work hard to not only maintain the course, but also install many of the renovations themselves. We would also like to thank the many volunteers who help our crew when it is "special project time"...we could not do it without you. THANK YOU!!
