Established in 1929, the Paintsville Golf Course was one of the first 18-hole courses in the Kentucky Highlands. The course architect was the late Dr. Paul B. Hall, a member of the Kentucky Golf Association Hall of Fame. Front nine is hilly with rolling fairways offering a variety of shots. Back nine is level with two lakes and the Big Sandy River weaving through. Water may come into play on all 18 holes. Two holes on the back nine (#10 and #17) require your tee shots to carry over the Big Sandy River. At that point, you face the challenge of crossing over our famous swinging bridge. Call 606-789-4234 for tee times.
The Paintsville Gold Course Clubhouse has been an intriguing and delightful location for gatherings since it formally opened on November 24, 1939. The original structure was built by the WPA from rock transported from nearby Route 40 going toward Thelma. The clubhouse has hosted events with such honorable guests as governors, senators, congressmen, college presidents and distinguished athletes and coaches. The banquet facilities are available for parties, receptions and weddings, and the grill is open during golf season. Anytime is a good time to stop by and view the front side of the golf course and the eighteenth hole from the dual level porch. The scenery is exceptional and historical.
