Gibson Bay Golf Course2000 Gibson Bay Dr, Richmond, KY 40475
Designed by Michael Hurdzan in 1993, Gibson Bay Golf Course was recognized as an honorable mention by Golf Digest for best new public golf course in the United States. This 7,100 yard, par 72 course is located along Richmonds 450 acre Lake Reba recreational complex.With up to five tee boxes on each hole, Gibson Bay Golf Course can accommodate players of all skill levels. All tees, greens, and fairways are seeded with bent grass to provide the best possible playing conditions.Gibson Bay is a long, open golf course which allows gusts of wind to be a factor in shot-making. A player will not find much trouble off the tee, but wayward tee shots will lead to side-hill lies and an awkward approach shot. Many of the greens are set into hill sides and protected by strategically placed bunkers and mounding.
