Pipestone Golf Course in Miamisburg is known for having some of the best greens in the Miami Valley, but that's not the only acclaim it's received. Golf Digest gave it four stars and ranked it as a "Best Place to Play." Arthur Hills designed the challenging golf course, though the natural contours of the landscape provided a good base to work with. The layout features rolling fairways and undulating greens. The elevation changes total more than 100 feet. There's no easing into this golf course; Pipestone's second hole is considered one of the most difficult holes in the area. This waterlogged par 5 has two small water hazards to the right and a pond that runs along the left. The fairway severely slopes toward the pond and then you're faced with a narrow opening to the green.

    I love the course but have to agree with anonymous on the coupon thing. I too had a coupon and they would not honor it. We actually left that day and went elsewhere. The staff manning the proshop leaves a lot to be desired.

    I enjoyed the course quite a bit. The team was very polite throughout. Starter should be there to check everyone's ticket versus once and a while....he could have been late however. The group I joined made a comment wondering if he checked the groups that went out before us.

    Played on a Saturday and price was reasonable. Was originally concerned (based on one review mentioning rangers and cart path only and some rudeness), but I did not experience that* (Hole #18).

    Course was in great shape and played very well. Couple of pins were in places that only pros and low single digit handicappers could get to which made it tough. Played w/low handicapper and he couldn't believe where a couple of pins were. Par 3's were pretty long, but enjoyable. Be sure to play it more than once....quite a few "hidden" hazards/creeks/blind shots and no GPS on carts. Course knowledge is a good friend to have. Greens rolled nice and true. Back is definitely more challenging overall than the front.

    Cart girl/attendant was very pleasant...did not get her name though. Hole #18....Par 5....very interesting hole. Blind shots....cart path only....otherwise a very nice and long hole. Can't wait to play it again.

    The course itself was pretty well maintained and a decent challenge, but I was extremely unsatisfied with the staff that checked me in (NOTE: the bar staff and the cart woman were professional). Despite paying for a cart, I was hardly able to use it because I was told starting around hole 3 that I could only use the cart on the cart path. At that point I would have been better off walking and would have liked to have my cart money back (NOTE: I did not try to ask for the money back). The staff could have let me know that it was "cart paths only" for carts prior to me paying to use a cart.
    Also, when checking in I tried using a buy one get one free Entertainment Book coupon, and the staff told me that despite it being after 3pm that I would have to pay their inflated morning green fee in order to use the coupon which would have resulted in a savings of only $1. After haggling with them for about ten minutes I got them to concede some on the coupon, but not to my satisfaction - I got what amounted to a buy one get one half off. The coupon phraseology was "enjoy one complimentary green fee with the purchase of a green fee" and it said it was valid Monday - Friday (I went on a Monday). The coupon did not say anything about other exclusions / exceptions. All-in-all, I will not golf this course again.

    Nice golf course, I play it well but watch out for the golf course police (rangers). They get on you all the time if you don't keep the golf carts on the cart path. I had a ranger with a hole in his neck yelling at me again because i parked with my right two wheels in the grass. Thoughs rangers can mess up you golf game and your day if you let them. Other wise a nice golf course. Enjoy if you can.
