Rating 71.1

Get a taste of the great outdoors - and a bit of Cincinnati history - by golfing a round at Sharon Woods, the 730-acre park that opened in 1932 as the Hamilton County Park District's first park.

The Sharon Woods Golf Course is also, it would follow, the oldest golf course maintained by the park district and was inaugurated by none other than Bobby Jones way back in 1938, and it still offers a challenging round of championship golf. It has also earned a couple of honors: The Cincinnati Enquirer calls it the "Best Bang For The Buck," and Golf Digest gives it four stars.

The bang-buck ratio is pretty darn good, as, being a county golf course, the Sharon Woods Golf Course offers 18 holes for under $30.

Nice course, with lots of elevation changes

Great course because it's not overly challenging but still presents several holes where you have to think. There are a couple doglegs with sloping fairways, you have to plan your tee shot. There are some up-hill and blind shots that make other holes interesting. There are a couple par 4s where driver is riskier than maybe a long hybrid. And then there are a few pretty straight-forward holes where you can just hit a shot without any analysis.

There were a couple greens that were splotchy in parts, but otherwise the course is always in great condition.

Granddaughter's birthday visit

Excellent staff, very friendly. Course is challenging but fair. Lots of elevation changes and blind targets, my wifw and I enjoyed our round. Played here before over 20 years ago and had to play again on our visit to Cininnati from South Florida.
