Course Reviews


Very hilly, one hole you can see the cincy skyline. Course is very hard to see the green on approach shots, many blind second shots. Course very average at best

Fairways had some trouble spots but greens were in good condition. Very tight in some places and extremely hilly. I didn't like not being able to see so many greens I was hitting at.

I grew up with this course... only walkable if you like to hike. Anyone who played Devou in the early to mid 90's will agree the management has put a lot of money and time to improving the course to its present state. Make sure you can control your shot, and/or bring a few extra sleeves of balls.

Enjoy the view on 5!

Good ball strikers and shot shapers need apply.

Not suggested for golfers who struggle with direction control. Many narrow landing areas, and many opportunities to lose balls in woods and high grass. It has a nice variety in hole layout, and feels like it ought to score easily. Hit it straight, and bring your short game and low scores are possible. Maintenance is typical of city public links.

Caution: This is not a course for walkers. Green to tee walks sometimes are several hundred yards, a concession to the pre-established park and surrounding neighborhoods.

Take a couple of extra balls with you. Despite this course being short, it is also very narrow and very easy to get into trouble. I think that is one of the reasons I like it so much. I enjoy taking my friends that have never played it and seeing how many balls they lost. Although with some decent eyes you do find as many as you knock into the woods.

It is definitely a park atmosphere and the views of downtown are awesome. Get out there and play this course at least once in your life.

Short, hilly, good condition and nice people.

Course is relatively short, with lots of elevation changes. There are a couple holes with good views of Downtown Cincinnati from high above. However, this is a horrible course unless you really like bad lies. On this course most holes punish all shots since there is no such thing as a good shot.
