    I live in Sharonville so Sharon Woods is my usual course (great, challenging course, and a beautiful 4 hour escape) but The Vineyard is a special treat. Well maintained, great staff (as you expect at all of the Great Parks courses) and well spaced tee-times. We’re 70 but we still walk the front ant ride the back.

    The course itself was in good shape. The problem I had was that they insist you are paired with someone. I guess they are afraid of loosing a couple of bucks on a single rider. I was paired with a guy who was always in a hurry. You would have thought he was going to a fire. I drove through 3 states to play here and was rushed around the course. He would floor the gas on the golf cart on the path,the rough,fairway or wherever then slam on the brakes. I told him I had a sore back,but it didn't matter to him. Three days later my back is still hurting. I don't play slow,but I also don't play fast. I feel as though I was robbed of an enjoyable round of golf. I will never play here again!

    The best municipal course in town. The fairways are narrow on some holes and a few blind shots but it is king of the Hamilton county courses under $50.00. It's a workout if you walk the back nine. Call 10 days in advance for a good tee time because they go fast. The earlier reviewer must have not realized that even Shaker Run was not in great shape because of the summer droughts the last two years. Legendary Run shut down early last year because we didn't get much rain in June and July of both 2011 and 2012.

    This is one of my favorite courses in the area. It went from immaculate in the spring, to shockingly bad right now. The groundskeeper and pro should be embarrased to not only have their name on the course but to charge what they do. Stay away until they fix it.

    It is a good course, no doubt but I was not a fan of the layout. With narrow fairways, surrounding woods, and many shorter par fours, there was not a lot of variety. I only hit the driver a handful of times, several of which I probably should not have once I better understood the course layout and dynamics. Even the par 5s are fairly narrow, and at least one requires a layup off the tee. This course is more of a 3 iron or 3 wood off the tee/mid to high iron approach shot type of course. Which is fine, but was pretty repetitive. The greens are tough, no doubt, and faster than most local courses but but not as fast as I expected. I can see the quality, but the course just didn't suit me that well. I'll give it another chance but for the money I was more impressed with Aston Oaks recently. Legendary Run is also a good alternative.

    Great! Challenging greens and tee shots. Only thing is that it is a lot of drier off the tee and then a low iron to the pin.
