PRESTONBSBURG – The website Golf Advisor (www.golfadvisor.com) set out to find the 50 most unique and affordable golf courses under $50. The website wanted to identify courses with consistent conditions and a shoe-string maintenance budget that provide excellent service. Kentucky was home to four courses on made the list, including Prestonsburg’s StoneCrest Golf Course.
Most of the courses on the list were not over 7,000 yards. In fact, many were in the 6,500 to 6,700 yards range. The larger length typically leads to higher green fees.
StoneCrest Golf Course offers a round of golf with a cart for $42 during weekends. The picturesque and affordable course was built on top of a mountain top removal site.
StoneCrest Golf Course will host the Highlands Golf Classic Aug. 31-Sept. 2. Proceeds from the tournament will go to support the Highlands Center for Autism.
Highlands Center for Autism is a year-round treatment program for children diagnosed with Autism. It is the first center-based program in Kentucky exclusively relying on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis. It remains the only center of its type in the state. The Center’s greatest challenge is assisting those who do not have insurance that covers the cost of the intense therapeutic program, which is significantly improving the lives of children and families.
