    The best public course in Central Ohio. A challenging layout with a "tough par, easy bogey" set up. From the tips, it is only 6,500 plus yards. Plays like 6,700-6,800 with the doglegs, elevation changes, etc. The course is consistently one of the best groomed in Central Ohio.

    I used to play here a lot until 2007. The rudest staff on any course in Central Ohio. Took my son back there last week to play after 9 years of playing elsewhere. Some things never change. Decent course, rude staff and Rangers. Thanks Jack. I've given you my last dollar.

    Husbands went golfing, wives went shopping, came back for Memorial Day cookout. Men were supposed to have a good time golfing but instead came back angry after playing here. All they did was complain about being rushed, treated with a decided lack of concern by staff, overcharged by 13.00 each over the rate advertised on a banner out front, just didn't have fun. Isn't that what it's supposed to be all about, not how fast you finish? They've never been this fired up about a golf outing ever!! Don't send your men here ladies!!!

    Course was good, staff was terrible. Ranger rushed us. He even sat and stared us down while waiting for us to hit, then told one of the group to skip his practice swing and get moving.These people are only interested in pumping players through the course with no concern as to wether you are enjoying your game. Ruined the event for all of us. Called to give them constuctive feedback and was cut off with their explanation of how their intention was to get people through. Really didn't care to hear anything I said. We will never play here again even if it was free. No way would recommend. Save your time and money, play elsewhere. Anything would be a better value, should have left after the first 9 and got a refund.

    One of the better 'discount' rate Traditional layout courses in the Columbus area.

    Can't beat the price and while not an extremely long course the greens are unbelievably good, quick, and challenging. For long, straight hitters the course can be less challenging. A lot of shorter Par 4's that provide great scoring opportunities but accuracy is key. Wayward drives are certainly punished on most holes. Terrain is extremely challenging and is a nice change from most of the public courses around columbus. Lots of chellenging lies even in the fairway.

    Overall -- can't beat the value. Definitely a must play for the typical 'public course' golfer...
