As was released following the KHSAA Board of Control meeting in January, the Board finalized the third of three State First Round Golf Sites for 2023.  Winchester Country Club, which was Site #3 host in 2022, will again be State First Round Site #3 for the upcoming year.   

Calvert City Country Club had previously been announced as Site #1 and Kenton County Golf Courses (Willow Course) in Independence had been announced as Site #2.

The Board, based on feedback from the previous year, will be finalizing specs to host at its February meeting and seeking to confirm sites for a three-year rotation at its May meeting.  Hopkinsville Country Club (Site #1) is the only previously announced site for 2024.
