Champion Trace and Keene Run Combine to Form Keene Trace Golf Club

Keene Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville, Kentucky is proud to announce that it has created one of the most unique private golf club experiences in the state.

Combining two premium golf clubs, Keene Trace offers 36 holes of championship golf and has its current members saying, “By far the best membership in Lexington”.

“The vision of Keene Trace Golf Club is to create a quality golf club that has championship caliber golf courses with an emphasis on family, youth, and the golfing experience,” say owners Evan Mossbarger and B Frye. “The experience will be further supplemented by affordable merchandise, a food service that is casual yet great tasting and at a competitive price. The club will not only serve the members, but also the community and the game of golf by hosting events and tournaments that can benefit all parties involved.”

Keene Trace is also happy to welcome professional golf back to the bluegrass with the Barbasol Championship, to be held at our Champion Trace course. This will be an amazing event and members will receive exclusive benefits around this PGA TOUR event.

The golf courses of Keene Trace have a history of hosting several prestigious events throughout the years. The Champion Trace course, designed by world-renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills, has hosted the USGA Senior Amateur, the NCAA Championship, the Men’s and Women’s SEC Championships, the Women’s Western Open, and the Kentucky Open and State Amateur. The Keene Run course has also hosted several USGA Qualifiers, the Kentucky PGA Tournament Series Championship, and the Lexmark Kentucky Women’s Open.

Keene Trace Golf Club offers more than just 36 holes of golf. It is unique in that it is the home of the award winning High Performance Golf Academy, which is one of the best learning centers in the country. Members enjoy exclusive benefits through the academy like discounted lesson rates and weekly member practices with PGA professionals. They also have access to covered heated tees as well as a fitness center that is staffed with Titleist Performance Institute certified instructors.

There are plenty of fun activities for the whole family at Keene Trace with a heated swimming pool and tennis courts. The two beautiful clubhouses are also ideal for hosting weddings and special events.
