Twin Lakes Golf Course Opens Its Fairways To Public
FORT THOMAS, Ky. — Twin Lakes Golf Course has reopened its fairways to the public. The course has undergone extensive renovations over the last two years, following a change in ownership and management. The new owners have made significant capital investments to improve the golf course and overall experience for members and guests.
Twin Lakes’ new superintendent, Chris Brown, has implemented major improvements on the fairways and greens of both courses, including drainage installation, tree removal and re-grassing. Brown is also revamping the landscape and bunkers throughout the property. In addition to improving courses, Brown is managing an aggressive program to keep carts off wet fairways by monitoring weather conditions via real-time radar. The greens have been aerated to promote root growth and improve turf health.
“This is an exciting time at Twin Lakes,” said PGA Head Golf Professional Matt Brown. “The new ownership group is dedicated to making this one of the premier private golf clubs in northern Kentucky.”
Brown will manage all aspects of operations at Twin Lakes, including membership sales, public play promotions, tournaments and special events, as well as supervise a staff of PGA professionals who will provide individualized lessons for members

Lumax took over the golf course in 2009 and is working on turning it into a top-notch facility that welcomes all levels of players.
“I want it to go back to what it used to be,” he said of the 18-hole facility that opened in 1967. “There’s a lot of potential for this course.”
