Detailed description of Minerva Lake Golf Course, CLOSED 2016

Minerva Lake Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Columbus, Ohio.

Minerva Lake Golf Course first opened for play in 1931. The course was designed by Woody Baugh.

This 18-hole par 69 golf course tucked in the midst of the Minerva Park neighborhood appeals to all levels of play. Minerva Lake Golf Club plays to a maximum distance of 5,513. The course rating is 66.1 with a slope rating of 103.

#10 always causes amusement for first-time Minerva visitors because it, not the standard ninth hole, closes out the "front nine" at the clubhouse (resulting in different pay rates for each "nine.") #18 is a beautiful par 3 with an almost miniature-golf quality to its 100-yard chip down to the clubhouse.

The course closed July 5, 2016. The course will be replaced with a 250 home residential community..

Minerva Lake Golf Course is a hidden gem in Columbus.

What's not to like? Mature trees, great varied layout, and a lot of elevation changes. The change in elevation can cofuse, the course plays longer that the scorecard indicates.

Miss-hit drives can leave you at the bottom of a valley leaving a difficult up-"hill" shot. The 18th hole is a wedge shot downhill to a green that sits 100 yards out. !00 yards downhill to a green seems easy, but over-hanging tree limbs penalize any ball not hit dead straight.

Combine a convenient location with a low I said, what's not to like.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
