Gibson Bay Golf Course

Richmond, Kentucky | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 7113 yards

While construction of Gibson Bay Golf Course began in the fall of 1991, the course officially opened in April 1993, and, as expected, was an instant success. The City of Richmond wanted to use the golf course, which is located along Richmond`s 450 acre Lake Reba recreational complex, as a tool to bring visitors to the area. Groups from throughout the Midwest and the South frequently visit Gibson Bay and become patrons of Richmond businesses, and visit the many other exciting tourist attractions in the region.Designed by Michael Hurdzan, Gibson Bay Golf Course can accommodate players of all skill levels. With up to five tee boxes on each hole, Gibson Bay can be long enough to challenge even the best golfers, while it can also be short enough to be fun for the novice golfers. All tees, greens, and fairways feature bent grass to provide the best possible playing conditions. Many of the greens are set into hillsides protected by bunkers and strategically placed mounding.
