Golf Course Information
General Burnside Island State Park was named for the sideburn-whiskered Civil War general Ambrose Burnside. Burnside led patrols along the Cumberland River, circling this 400-acre island while on the look out for Confederate soldiers.
General Burnside Island State Park has recently completed renovation for a brand new 18-hole golf course. Brian Ault, designer of Dale Hollow and Hidden Cove, both recognized nationally by Golf Digest, was selected as the architect. The course is on an island surrounded by Lake Cumberland. In addition, the new design will also have a driving range. The newly renovated golf course is sure to be spectacular with projected opening Spring 2008.
