The Grizzly Course, named after its legendary designer Jack Nicklaus, is one of two courses offered by the Golf Center at Kings Island. Since opening in 1972, the Grizzly has been host to several PGA, LPGA, and Senior PGA events. Nicklaus teamed up with Desmond Muirhead to design the course. Muirhead's distinct presence is felt throughout the course on the long, curvy fairways that are lined with tall, mature trees. There are several tough holes including the final trio, which feature not only water hazards but also a bevy of strategically placed bunkers. The golf course is challenging but playable, making it versatile enough for a range of skill levels.

    My grandson players KingsIsand on 4/24/16 said the staff was great and the fairways and greens were perfect, played in 4 and a half hours. I've play the course all the time and have a great time. The staff is Aplus. Thanks Larry Shackelford. 4/24/16

    Played Memorial Day weekend. 18 holes in 3.5 hours as a twosome. Pro Shop staff very polite and helpful. Wish all golfers would repair ball marks, but greens were true and relatively fast. Only course I've played in Cincinnati Area that hasn't watered the hell out of the fairways. Drives and shots to green all had some roll after the carry. Course condition was pretty good, considering the lack of rain recently. A very enjoyable experience.
