This is a very nice course; combine it with the red side and you have a wonderful 18 holes. The problem for the facility is it was not designed or built by Donald Ross in 1925. The Red side was built in 1914 and opened in 1915, the white side construction began in 1923. The architect who designed those 9 holes and rearranged the Red side layout was WC Jackson of Chicago. All of this was widely reported over a 3 year period by the Hamilton Evening Journal. Why they continue to advertise what it is not is beyond me, as it's a very nice facility.

Do Not Recall (cart included), played on Sunday, March 2014 at noon

27 Holes total. The red and white nines are Donald Ross designs with false fronts and considerable bunkering. The blue nine is a Hurdzan design that's challenging in its own right. Fairways and greens have been amongst the best in the Cincinnati area for the last 20 years thanks to superintendent Ron Patterson. The staff does an excellent job routing play on the 27 holes ensuring that all rounds are played in 4.15, no 5 hour rounds. job routing play on the 27 Holes ensuring pace of play is under 4:15. This is a great course to walk with little Dusty from tee to green.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Best course in the area
