Cooks Creek Golf Club
Cooks Creek Golf Club (previously known as Raintree South Golf Club) is bordered by Little Walnut Creek on one side and the Scioto River on the other, providing a scenic setting that is ideal for a round of golf. The course is a certified Audubon Sanctuary and there is also a Blue Herron rookery on site. Opened in 1993, the golf course is relatively young but it has already established a reputation for being one of central Ohio's best public courses. Local architects Michael Hurzdan and Dana Fry designed the course with the assistance of John Cook. Cooks Creek has two completely unique nines that offer two different sets of challenges. The diverse layout requires careful strategy and it will also test your shot-making abilities. With two bodies of water serving as neighbors, water definitely plays a role on the golf course.

Cook's Creek 18Apr19
One of my favorite central Ohio public courses. Multiple memorable holes. Nice mix of long and short par 4's. Good changes in elevation. A very fun course to play. Tough course to walk. Looking forward to the next time I get to play.
The course was beautiful but the woman I dealt with at the front desk was very rude and had no respect for the customer.

Great Spring day at Cooks Creek
Had a wonderful day at CC with a close friend and bro n law. The weather was ideal at 74*, overcast and little wind. The greens were lightning fast, enjoyable and totally unexpected this early in the season. Always a treat to play this course!!!!

Great golf course
Really nice greens front was amazing the back had been (aerated but filled in nice) recently but still ok what a great layout and only 25$ wow
Great Value and Course
This was my second time playing this course and it was in great condition, especially for the time of year. With a lot of recent rain the bunkers were a little washed out but everything was great condition. The staff was very friendly, will definitely being playing here again:

Bout time to get out in March in Cols to play golf
A wonderful Spring day in Central Ohio along with a great rate and promo reward made for the perfect day on the links with my step Bro n Law. Temp started at noon around 40ish and warmed to about mid 50’s by 4. Sunshine and two gracious foursomes who encouraged our twosome to move on provided a wonderful pace of play for the two of us as we shared issues of our families and getting caught up while encouraging each other’s shots and sharing in our disappointments when a shot would Mis-fire... Cooks Creek was in great shape for the amount of rain recently experienced and the cart path only was understandable and while it may have slowed our pace it did not deminish the joy experienced.... I always look forward to a day at Cooks Creek...

One of my favorite tracks
I've played CC several times and have yet to be disappointed. We caught a nice day in Jan and decided to go out. CC was one of the few courses still open. For Jan, the course was in very good shape. Being in a flood plain, it's always prone to being pretty wet. But, aside from a few areas, the course was very playable. We will certainly be back for more rounds.

Been a few years since I played here but it was still as good I love this course
This has always been one of the best courses in South Central Ohio. The layout is challenging, but very playable. Great staff and a great golf experience!
Stealing a day for golf in the Fall
Got to spend a day with my brother and step-Brother n law at cooks creek... the weather today compared to recent and following days to be was ideal. The Back nine was ideal, the front nine was airated last week and still healing from that process, but was still appreciated.. cooks creek is always a looked forward to track and we were not disappointed.
Great fall single outing
Cooks Creek is always a delight. Along with a Golfnow great rate and reward, you just cannot beat the value. I played at a temp of 42 starting around 11am to about 47 around 3pm. Partly sunny and little to no wind. The front side was being airated so I was limited to only the back nine, which was fine with me. I played it twice and then some. The folks in the office said play as much as you want. There was very little play going on. The course was in great shape including the traps, which at this time of year is unusual. After my two rounds of the back nine I played about 5 holes jumping around groups of twosomes or driving my ball to end up picking up not wanting to be held up. These were extra holes I did not anticipate getting to play. All in all a great day and all the golf I wanted to have on an October chilly afternoon. I always look forward to playing Cooks Creek!!!
The course was in great shape and the players in front of us were very kind to let us play thru. The layout is great and each hole has a different look. I enjoyed the round very much, great shape, course good pace of play and great value.
Enjoyed a late 9 holes today. Greens a re fast but true and have not been aerated or sandy yet. Not sure why they don't have a pro shop or why it's not more busy. Good place to play.
Sunday at Cooks
Course was in great condition. Unfortunately there was a foursome ahead that was extremely slow. 5 hour round. No ranger in sight.
Very nice course
My buddies & I venture over to Cooks Creek every so often from Lancaster because it has a country club feel. The layout it challenging but fair. The greens were in decent shape considering a lot of the surrounding courses seem to be struggling to maintain theirs. We experienced considerable rain a few days ahead of our play date so we had to stay on the cartpath. But, since we basically had the course to ourselves, it wasn't a big deal. If you're playing at a high-demand time and it's "cartpath only", you might be in for a long round.
We always enjoy our time at CC and would certainly return.
