Thanks for taking time to post a review!
There is nothing spectacular about Brightleaf, but it is a great place to enjoy a weekend with the fellas. Yeah, the rooms are just okay, and the golf course is just okay, but golf is golf and it's good enough.
The service is good, the people are nice and the breakfast and lunches are excellent. Especially if you like bacon, eggs, burgers, blts, chicken salad, etc. I look forward to to grabbing a bacon and egg sandwich and meeting my group on the first tee for a long day of golf and gabbing.
Thanks for taking time to post a review. Our rooms have been remodeled since your stay and improvements are made to the course each year...if you are back in the area, we would love for you to stop by! Thanks again.
I guess I should be grateful that they were dead. But finding one still squirming ant as big as a hummingbird in the ice container was not fun. I was concerned that the ant had been sprayed with some nice toxic substance while it was IN the ice bucket. Even better was lifting up the bedspread and finding more dead bugs on the carpet near the bed. It was expensive but the only show in town due to a wedding at the Shaker Village. The bed was hard, the towels were cheesy and all in all it was a very nasty experience and I could not wait to get out of there..

We have been taking a golf vacation to Bright Leaf for over 20 years with four different groups of golfers. The course if great, even if it rains, the course will drain quickly and you are able to get your round in.
I do miss the ranger who kept the slower players moving (when they let 2 or more holes in front of them become empty) so the rounds could be played in less than 5-6 hours. Kevin is great to keep tee times on schedule.
The hotel is comfortable and the breakfast is pretty good. We like that we park the car and don't move it until we get ready to leave. There are some pizza places that deliver along with the handy grills, you can find alternatives to the restaurant if you wish without having to leave the premises.
Overall, a great way to spend time enjoying yourself with your fellow golfers. We have met many friendly folks here.

I wish I'd found this place before. I'm not a golfer, but I stayed here because the hotel was convenient and economical. Believe me, I'm plotting my return. Even though I'm not a golfer.
You should know that this isn't a posh golf resort. But it's family-run, friendly, clean, economical and - when I was there, people were playing golf at 10 pm. While out on the grounds, I overheard golfers talking about what a bargain this place was for a golf vacation and saw license plates in the parking lot from a couple of states away.
But enough about golf. My room, granted, looked a bit dated in the decor - but I had a microwave and a refrigerator. It was comfy and clean. I had a first floor room facing the highway, but it was quiet (even with the golfers out and about.) I didn't intend to spend a lot of time in the room anyway.
The staff is friendly. So is the resident cat, who can tell who wants her around and who isn't interested. She sticks around the lobby area. There's also a pro shop and, I believe, a conference center there.
The restaurant on the premises is great for breakfast. The cuisine is down-home, country cooking. I noticed that some gas grills came out near the pool near evening. With Kroger and WalMart down the street for provisions, that's an option for those who aren't into the country cooking scene.
The hotel is on a US highway (US 127) and is between Harrodsburg and Danville, both of which have commercial chain strips on that same road, so you have other options for dining, if you so desire.
