Arguably the best course in Ohio for public play. This place from the actual course itself to all its amenities was in immaculate condition. Consider that when you throw in it was 1 of the dryest summers on record for the state of Ohio & the nation when i played it (Sep 2012).

From tee to green the landscape & maintenance of each individual hole rivals professional courses. Clean lines with lots of attention to detail were noticed. It was obvious they take great pride knowing a thing or two about golf course management.

The layout of most holes undulate considerably with plenty of strategically placed fairway bunkers & nearby ponds, requiring precision if you want to keep your score respectable. By this i mean aiming for the area that gives you the best opprotunity to walk away with no worse than par or bogey. Greens were top-notch & required skill for a good line but thankfully i was given a useful tip from the starter. Sorry, cant tell you what it was, i had to pay $95 for it just like everyone else before me did:)

A little surprised they haven't hosted a PGA Men's or Women's tournament, the course certainly has the length for it. The clubhouse has the space when you consider they have a in-house restaurant/bar, banquet rooms & enormous upscale country club lockerooms.

As for that $95 i mentioned, its diffucult for a weekend golfer like myself to justify dropping a $100 for a single round of golf but i do enjoy the game & enjoyed my round/experience. Highly recommended if you have the spare cash.

Best public course in Ohio!

At $100, I have a hard time rating it's value so high since there are a lot of great courses in the Columbus area for half the price, but this course is tops. Since I've paid more at lesser quality courses around the country, it earned an acceptable rating for value.

Best thing I can say is the course has a beautiful flow to it. It never seems disjointed or piece milled to fit it into a plot of land, or fairways squished side by side for 18 holes. There are plenty of trees and water and traps to negotiate, but it is fairly playable (read: doesn't kill you on every hole) if you're hitting even sorta well. Don't get me wrong... careless stray shots will cost you though!

Greens are classic with small but effective rolling mounds (as opposed to obnoxious mountainous knobs some greens incorporate) that take some great reading skills, to get precise line and speed correct. They, along with the whole course, were in superb shape. Would play again even at this price, but not every time I'm here.

Just played this beautiful course and loved it. The course was long and challenging, but provided a fun round of betting. Beautiful landscape and clubhouse to go along with the course. The staff was helpful and friendly as well. All in all, a great day of golf and I highly recommend playing here.

Beautiful golf course with a tremendous layout. Course was in PERFECT shape. Just beautiful; the kind of golf course where 2 days later I can almost remember every hole. Have played many courses all over the country ranked in the "Tops in State" "Top 100 in the country" and this ranks right up there in my top 10.
Definately a "Modern" golf course instead of a classical course like, Scioto, for those Ohio residence, I am from Georgia. Just a great place for a very reasonable price. I would highly suggest making the drive to play.

My only problem is the Greenskeeper/Super, set the pins in some unplayable spots that they changed later in the day. For the die hard golf fans hole #6 (Short par 4) the pin was cut in a spot where I was 6ft above the hole for birdie and putted the ball off the green. My putt trickled by the hole. Back to my point it was like 18 at Olympic Club in round 2 when Lee Janzen won; I believe the year was 98'.

Great course great place; I would go

Great Golf Course

I played this course twice yesterday and loved every minute. The madness starts right off the bat with a very intimidating first hole. There's a tree in the middle of the fairway, bunkers and a huge drop-off on the right, and O.O.B on the left.

That's pretty much how the entire course is set up. You do get generous landing areas for most drives. However, if you miss the fairways, you'll be lucky to find your ball, let alone hit it out of long, thick rough or worse.

This course is also very long. If you are not a big driver, stay away from the tips.

The clubhouse is second to none, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the practice facility is great.

The only issue I had was the price vs. the course upkeep. I thought the fairways could have been cut alot tighter. They were much more shaggy than you'd expect from a $100+/round course.

Overall, it was a very nice course.

Best looking golf course you can play in Ohio

This course exemplifies what Jack Nicklaus (or was it Bobby Jones) said, "A golf hole should look like it's been there forever." I love Arthur Hills courses becaue he knows that. The hills of Eastern Ohio are greatly underrated. Play this course and see that for yourself.

Of courses I have played, this course is just as nice as Muirfield Village and you don't even have to be Sean Connery to get a tee time.

The course is a challenge typical of Arthur Hills. He provides ample landing areas for you tee shots. Then, the fun starts. If you hit the green, don't count on an easy par.

Terrific betting course with 3 killer finishing holes on each nine.
