Lexington city golf courses are reopening with new social distancing guidelines in place. You can book a tee time for Tates Creek Golf Course online.

Important Course Operational Updates:

  • One player riding per golf car. Those living in the same household may ride together.
  • Due to limited tee time availability, all players booked at the same time will be paired together.
  • Pro shops and driving ranges are closed.  Please plan on bringing any food, beverages, or snacks.  Personal alcohol is prohibited.
  • All golfers will be expected to maintain social distancing standards and not gather in groups
  • Please see booking confirmation email for all other guidelines and restrictions at this time


Tee Time Booking Helpful Tips:

  • On the booking page please use the drop down options on the left side to toggle between walking, riding, 9, 18 holes and to choose between courses
  • Last available 18 hole tee time is at 3:30 each day, 5:30 for 9 holes
  • The 45 minute mark of every hour is reserved for walking only due to limited golf car availability
  • If a tee time only shows availability for “X” number of players, it is because other players have already booked for that time.
    • Example: If the 12:15 p.m. tee time shows availability for one player that means three other players are already booked for that time

For 9 hole only rounds after 3:30 p.m., call the golf shop to reserve and pay in advance over the phone.

All 18 hole tee times are being booked and payed for online only at this time.
