I have played this course several times, I really enjoy this course. The layout is fair, except for a few holes that are very difficult. Once you get past the unfriendly staff in the pro shop and the starter who runs the starting poat like a Swiss watch, the course is challenging and fun. If you can get the coupon ($37), you get greens fee, a cart and lunch (hot dog, drink and chips).

I have played this course multiple times and it is a great course if you are looking to get out and play a nice round of golf. The layout has a couple of challenging holes although most are pretty straight forward and are fairly open. The conditions are consistently good. There are 27 holes which provides options (the blue and white are the best 2 nines in my opinion). There are great practice facilities which include: a putting green, chipping green (with bunkers), and driving range (grass usually on weekends). I would recommend this course to golfers of all skill levels.

I played 45 holes over 26 hours (for under $100 in greens and cart fees) and enjoyed every minute of it. I am a 12 handicap and the best 18 I had was 88. Everyone from local players I joined up with to staff were helpful, pleasant and professional. I was here while my wife attended a conference at the local college and the drive from Cincinanti was well worth it to play this course.
