Kentucky state parks officials say they're looking for alternative recreational uses for two nine-hole golf courses.

The courses at Carter Caves State Resort Park and Kincaid Lake State Park previously sought proposals for private management but did not receive any responses.

As a result, officials say the course at Carter Caves will close permanently April 2 and the course at Kincaid Lake will remain open through Oct. 31.

The park system is evaluating alternative uses for the nine-hole course at General Butler State Resort Park, which has closed.

State Parks Commissioner Donnie Holland says the system can no longer maintain quality standards for golf at the three courses due to higher maintenance costs and fewer rounds played. All full-time employees will be retained.
