Jim Beam's tour of the facilities was an eye-opening experience in the world of Bourbon distilling from the world's largest producer of Bourbon. The tour even allows you to put your thumbprint in the wax seal of a bottle of Knob Creek single barrel Bourbon...who wouldn't buy that souvenir?

Forest Edge Winery

Reviewed By Ralph R - Farmington, Michigan, United States

This is a small store converted from a machine shop six years ago according to the help. A lot of reviewers noted the preference for what are their sweet wines. Located in Kentucky, they like wine like their sweet tea evidently. They get riesling and other grapes from outside to make some nice dry and semi-dry whites and a good merlot as well. Prices are reasonable. Good find.

Reviewed By Sheryl G - Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

We stumbled upon this driving down the road. We were able to take the guided tour and tasting. It was a beautiful facility and everyone was super friendly. Loved the history and taste testing and I ended up buying Bourbon and I don't even drink it! I got lots of great Christmas presents and learning a lot.

Charlie Vettiner Park

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

Pro:
...Zoysia fairways were awesome.
...The greens were very large and the bent grass was in perfect shape. Almost no ball marks.
...Lots of cool dog legs.
...Very Scenic with lots of elevation change.
...It was a difficult course which made it fun for my husband because he is a good golfer (tight tee shots on several holes and uphill shots into the greens).
...Folks in the clubhouse were very helpful and nice.
...Unique practice areas - huge putting green, small, undulating sand and pitching green, and an open short game area where you use your own balls to practice short shots.

Con:
...There were a few hidden hazards which makes it difficult for new players like me. A creek that you cannot see from the tee box goes across the first fairway. It is also downhill into the creek which makes the first shot problematic. Also bunkers in dog legs that you cannot see from the tee box. Other holes you tee off over a hill with no idea what is on the other side.
...The rough is okay but there were some bare spots and washouts.
...Bunker's were not maintained at all. They were wet, had standing water, had goose poop and leaves.
...Did not find any water to drink anywhere on the course.
...The only useful yardage markers in the fairways were for 100 150 and 200 yards. ...Most sprinkler heads were blank but I saw one that said 171, when it was actually about 130 out.
...No driving range

Was in town for another function and came across this place. My husband and I are both in our 40s and my father in his 60s and we had the best time. We felt like kids out there. The mile and half track is awesome and i'm ready to make a weekend trip back just to go back.

Reviewed By Gary M - Sevierville, Tennessee

Nothing terrible about this winery but nothing really good either. Okay setting, okay Tasting room, not terrible wine. That is the problem, everything was just okay. Nothing special at all. The samples were good size, but the wine just wasn't anything special. The girl doing our tasting was not very informative or engaging, just asked what we wanted and poured, seemed a little distracted. They were getting ready for a wedding maybe that was it but still not very impressed.

As we entered the beautiful visitor's center at Bernheim Arboretum a gentleman greeted us and inquired if we needed any help organizing our visit. He introduced himself as the great grandson of Isaac Bernheim who donated the land for this beautiful arboretum and told us a bit of the history and highlights to see. The famous landscape architect, Olmsted planned the lovely three small lakes and the very convenient and extensive road through the area, which allows mobility challenged guests to visit areas like the lookout viewing platform. We were amazed by the Holly forest and loved strolling the lakes. Very beautiful and peaceful!
Additional they have a lovely gift shop, clean bathrooms and a delightful café. Highly recommended!

A great little shop, the people are pretty nice. They seems to cater more to locals than to visitors, but they are always polite and I have purchased a few items in this store. I can't give this store a fantastic review because the store simply isn't big enough for a day-trip half-way between Louisville and Bardstown, but it is a nice little stop over for half an hour or so. The items are usually well stocked, they are not too open to haggling, or buying. They are simply sellers. That sort of takes some of the fun out of it. :)

They have a wide variety of wines, sweet, semi-sweet and dry. Tastings are $5, you choose 6 wines to try, and you keep the engraved stem glass. Out hostess was very knowledgeable and gracious. The grounds are beautifully kept. We bought 3 bottles! We will return.

Reviewed By Beauregard70 - Fort Thomas, Kentucky

This is not fancy mini golf! It looks like it was originally built in the 1970's and all they have done for maintenance over the years is put on a yearly fresh coat of paint and replace the light bulbs.

They have speakers playing background music throughout the course with probably the original soundtrack from when they opened.

That being said, this was an awesome experience. Very friendly staff, very happy and friendly patrons, and a very nostalgic vibe. We would go back!
