We started playing our league here. Our league consists of a bunch of hacks with a few exceptions. The course is tough with trees but there are holes that are short for the average golfer to enjoy. Overall, it's a pretty good course

The pace of play was slow. The rough was very long, and the greens were slow.

Slightly over priced for weekend play but reasonable. Its a very challenging layout. Plays longer than the yardage. If you drive 240 yds or longer, you will need to work the ball or hit over trees. Greens have subtle contours thus speed control is very important or else you may 3 putt bunch of holes. If you're a decent golfer, you'll enjoy the layout. If you show up thinking this is same as other Columbus Muni, you'll get a rude awakening. I enjoy golfing here although conditions could be little better. P.S. I'm fairly spoiled when it comes to golf course conditioning since I used to play lot of private courses and top 100 public courses in the nation so take it with a grain of salt on my condition guide.

This is a very challenging layour by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and one of his better ones in my opinion. The greens a very challenging and a two putt is not guaranteed even though the greens are smaller than average. It is a former Country club that the City purchased and is by far the best value for the area if you like a chalenge in your play. Mulktiple tee boxes and driving range as well as putting and chipping greens to prepare for the challenge of the course. I would not recommend iot to novice golfers or those that spray the ball as the mature tree lined layout can cause many lost balls and penalty strokes for those that play by the USGA rules of golf. But for better golfers it provides a nice achallenge and if you keep the ball in the fairway, good sdcores are possible. It rates a slope of 129 from the white tees which only play at about 6300 yards so the greens are challenging and up and downs take quailty shots.
