Rating 76.2

Established in 1938, the Ohio State University Scarlet Golf Course is rated the best collegiate facility in the country by Golf Digest. It was designed by Alister MacKenzie.

Located two miles northwest of the main campus, the Par-71 golf course carries a rating of 76.1, with a slope of 142. From the championship tees, it stretches out to 7,455 yards of rolling terrain and contains a nine-and-a-half-acre lake and winding stream that create challenging play on several holes.

In 2005 and 2006, the Scarlet course underwent a major restoration project overseen by former Buckeye legend Jack Nicklaus.

Always a fun course

The course was in good shape considering the recent rain/melted snow. In peak season it’s a fantastic course that always rewards good play, but in this time of year you don’t get much bounce (as with any course in the area). The only quibble I would have at present is that the past few months they’ve mowed their greens much shorter than necessary, making it so getting touch is putts is next to impossible. Overall a really fun course that I would highly recommend to anyone who has access to it. The $25 offseason rate is great too!
