2 state park golf courses closing temporarily in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials say two state park golf courses will be closed temporarily to allow for re-seeding of greens.

The Department of Parks says both courses are in western Kentucky.

Parks officials say the 18-hole courses at Mineral Mounds State Park near Eddyville and Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park near Dawson Springs will close Aug. 20 for about four weeks. They say the greens will be re-seeded, and the courses are expected to re-open later this year.

The officials say the re-seeding is needed due to weather-related damages.

Two other state park courses in the region remain open. They are at Lake Barkley State Resort Park at Cadiz and Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park at Calvert City.
