Top Golf Courses in Cincinnati, OH
Cincinnati is home to some of the best courses in the Midwest. We have a few fantastic golfers at Performance Kings Honda and thought we’d share our favorite local golf spots. This list includes nine of them, but we could have easily made a list much longer!
Golf Club at Stonelick Hills
Stonelick Hills is one of those courses that golfers will travel hours to enjoy. Jeff Osterfeld, the owner and designer of the club, had the vision to create a course that was “pure” and focused exclusively on the game of golf and not housing with golf course views, additional sports, and the like.
The Golf Club at Stonelick Hills incorporates the natural landscape into its rolling greens with regular wildlife visitors year-round. It has been designed with the strategic golfer in mind and is a fun but challenging experience for every skill level.
Aston Oaks Golf Club
Located less than 30 minutes outside of Cincinnati in North Bend, Ohio, the Aston Oaks Golf Club is the best in the area and consistently top-rated. Jack Nicklaus, one of the best professional golfers of our time, designed this course. Tournaments and championships are regularly hosted here.
The Oak Leaf Restaurant offers patio seating when you would like to enjoy a quiet evening and the course’s beautiful views. Banquets can be held indoors or outdoors for various events, including weddings, fundraisers, and more. Be sure to schedule your tee time online to take advantage of their online-only discount.
Losantiville Country Club
If you’re looking for a bit of tradition in your country club experience, Losantiville has it. It was designed over 100 years ago and took advantage of natural features like densely packed, mature trees and ponds. It’s been updated over the years, but much of the course remains the same. A herd of white-tailed deer is spotted regularly.
Other features at the Losantiville Country Club include racquet sports and a pool. Enroll the kids in a SwimSafe course at the pool while you enjoy a round, and the entire family can enjoy their time here.
Hyde Park Golf & Country Club
Another country club that has been around for a bit is Hyde Park. Founded in 1909, their take on the club experience has grown with the decades, and they cater to individuals, couples, and families. There’s a bit of classic country club here but with a much more modern feel.
Designed by Donald Ross, the course is the perfect way to spend the day. If your golf game isn’t on par, enjoy a game of tennis or head to the fitness center. The whole family can jump into the pool or knock down a few pins at the bowling lanes. The Hyde Park Golf & Country Club has something for everyone.
California Golf Course
The beautifully maintained course is undoubtedly a sight to see, but the Ohio River’s views can’t compare at the California Golf Course. Beginners will find the course a challenge and learn a new skill or two by the end of 18 holes. Advanced golfers looking for a test will find it here. You’ll also find a pro shop stocked with great equipment and apparel.
The California Golf Course has been named a Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International. Their efforts to “improve efficiency, conserve resources, and promote conservation efforts” have been recognized by the organization, and the course has been certified as eco-friendly.
Fernbank Golf Course
With nine holes and just 2,107 total yards, Fernbank is a fun way to spend a few hours when you don’t have the time for an entire course. It’s also a fun way to practice your skills as “The Bank” is slightly different. Many who visit call this course quirky because you won’t find a course designed quite like this anywhere in the area.
There are no specific tee times at the Fernbank Golf Course. Management only asks that you don’t come by to play during league times. If you’d like to join a league yourself, they can help you find one.
Blue Ash Golf Course
If you’re looking for an award-winning, highly recognized golf course in Cincinnati, you need to check out Blue Ash. Named one of the top 75 municipal courses in the U.S. by Golf Digest, this course is challenging. However, you’ll find some tips for each hole on their site so you can get a feel for the course before you arrive for your tee time.
The Blue Ash Golf Course has been named a readers’ pick by the City Beat magazine based in Cincinnati and “Best of the North” by Cincinnati Magazine more than once. In 2016, the course hosted the Tony Blom Metropolitan Championship.
Legendary Run Golf Course
Designed by Arthur Hills, Legendary Run features a very different style back nine than the first nine holes. Don’t let yourself get used to that type of play too quickly because as soon as you do, you’ll be ready for a much different experience starting at hole 10. The course covers 200 acres and includes six beautiful lakes.
Their most popular membership offers half-priced food items and unlimited range balls. You can also play the course for only the cart fee. The membership provides all the most popular features of the Legendary Run Golf Course so that you can get the most out of your time there.
Tri County Golf Ranch
Another nine-hole course, the Tri County Golf Ranch is a fun way to spend a few hours. Those hours are well-spent if you need to up your game and lower your score. The nine holes offer a challenge and require you to perfect the most common techniques. The 10-hole practice putting green is ideal for perfecting those vital, gentle golf strokes.
The Golf Ranch understands the importance of practice and how important a nine-hole course and putting green can be. To make the most of your time at the Tri County Golf Ranch, they also sponsor on-site training courses, clinics, and classes. Younger golfers can join the Junior Golf Tournament Series.
