About

Length 7139

Rating 74.1
Type Semi-Private
Located in Centerville, the Golf Club at Yankee Trace not only holds the title of "Dayton's best golf course," it is also considered the best public course in the entire Miami Valley. The club offers a challenging Championship Course as well as the nine-hole Vintage Course. The 18-hole course is a tough but fair test. The layout plays across grassy meadows and despite being dotted with a few mature trees, the holes are mostly wide-open. Strategically placed bunkers protect the greens and there is also the occasional water hazard ton contend with. It is great for a quick game, rounds are usually played in less than four and a half hours. The traffic is helped by the nine-hole course, which is also great for beginners who don't want to take on the full golf course.

First Time Playing

Nice course

The course was still wet from rain which led to cart path only. The pace of play was very slow on the front nine because of the cart path only requirement but only on the front nine. The second nine was much faster. I don’t know if this was related to groups only playing nine holes or they dispersed to the other 9 hole course.

Nice course though

Good track, subpar greens

Yankee Trace is a fantastic track with many challenging holes. The fairways were in excellent condition. However the greens were disappointing by being too bumpy and slow for my taste. The pace of play could have been better, too, but it was a beautiful Friday afternoon with a lot of play.

Great course to be on GolfNow

Course was in great shape, even though it was cart path only today from all the rain we've had. Staff was very friendly and pace of play was as to be expected with the conditions. Will definitely play here again and recommend this to anyone who hasn't played here.

Good layout missing maintenance

Yankee is a good layout, can play long from the back tees if the fairways are soft. The greens seem to varying a lot from early season to late season. They need to remind people to fix their pitch marks on the greens as there were a lot of blemishes and I healed marks on every green, to the point any putt over 10 feet seemed to be impossible. The last time I played there the greens had not been mowed in several days and were visibly shaggy, combined with the pitch marks you might have week been playing on tempory greens. I enjoy the course but wish it was better maintained.

3 Groups 1 tee

4th time playing Yankee. Long story short when we made the turn after playing the front nine in an hour and half they had 3 groups going off on 10. We should’ve know it was a disaster waiting to happen because each hole we waited 10 min to tee off. Finally after an hour and half and only 4 holes we called the club house and they sent someone out only to tell us we lied about the pace of play and there’s no way the course would let 3 groups go off at once. I mean it’s obvious the course was just trying to get money but come on. I won’t be playing g here for a while.

Beautiful golf course tries to bite you at the end of your round

This is a very beautiful golf course in very nice condition. On the back nine the final 3-4 holes will try to take a bite out of your score.

Very nice course but pace of play an issue

The course is in great shape. The range was in great shape as well. The pace of play was horrible! We could have been playing with 8 in our group and probably still have to wait every shot. Very disappointing about that given they had rangers all over the course. They just drove around like they didn't care.

Always satisfies

Yankee Trace may not be the most interesting layout, but at a time when many courses are not able to sufficiently maintain course conditions, Yankee excels. Last year was the highest rate of play yet, and the course is in great condition. From the blue trees, the course is all the challenge I can handle. The clubhouse facilities are excellent, and the prices for food and drinks is reasonable. All in all, it's easy to recommend Yankee to friends.

Good experience at Yankee Trace

We played the original front nine and the Vintage back nine. The course is in great condition. We were behind a slow foursome but they allowed us to play through. Had a good time. It was worth the rate they charged.

Very Fun Course

Fairways and greens in excellent condition. VERY FUN course to play for any handicap. They are updating bunker system and range is one of the best in the area. Pace is great in the am but slows to average in the afternoon.

Nice track...but a bit pricey for conditions in relation to other local courses

Nice layout...peak rates are a bit over the top. Conditions vary but considering the amount of play it gets they do a decent job. Nice clubhouse but so many private functions (money maker)... limits golfer access to the 19th hole far, far too often. Bunkers can be inconsistent.
