     Stonecrest Golf Course, located in Floyd County, Kentucky, is something of a golf course paradise. But this wasn't always true for the 7,200 yard course. When Paul Hughes and Greg Stumbo first came to the former-strip mine, the knew it was where an 18 hole course could thrive.

     "This was a dream of our representative, Greg Stumbo that we would have an 18 hole golf course here," said Paul Hughes, former committee chairman. "A committee was set up to start that planning. I was elected as the chairman of that committee. And so we started from that angle and developed into what we've got today, and the rest is history."
