Rating 71.1
Type Public
The Kittyhawk Golf Center facility possesses three of only six municipal golf courses in the Dayton area. The Hawks Course is one of two regulation courses at Kittyhawk and there is also one executive course. The courses are very similar in landscape and challenge but the Hawks Course is the shorter of the two regulation courses. The terrain is flat with trees scattered throughout. The course is fairly open with fairways that are wide open and the greens are large with subtle breaks. Man-made lagoons create water hazards that come into play on fourteen holes and there are many sand bunkers as well.

Nice course

Nice course with great greens but the fairways need to be cut a little lower because you don’t get any roll. It can use a few more ball washers and have more than one beverage cart running

Great experience

I must have dropped my wallet when I got it out to retrieve the ticket at the starter's shack - someone found it and turned it in!

The course was not crowded at all - I played by myself, and although it was hot and a little windy at times, the weather conditions were pretty awesome.

The fairways and greens could use a little water, but other than that the course conditions were good - rough was not that bad, so an errant shot or two didn't kill my round. Errant chipping and putting did!

Great course for the money...

Nice for a public course the greens are in nice condition sand bunkers are a different story alot of small rocks and very little sand in most bunkers. Very friendly staff in the pro shop hit or miss when it comes to the restaurant usually closed in the early morning tee times ....

Yuck

Course was horrible. Greens were absolutely awful. We had a guy playing alone ahead of us, but hitting probably 6 balls on every shot. I yelled to him and he flipped me off then went onto another hole.

Nice Muni

I love city owned courses and hope more cities would see the value in investing in them. Great for the community.

Kittyhawk was in really good condition. Greens were perfect. My only knock is I thought the fairways were long. Nice open lay-out plenty of challenge from sandtraps and water.

Nasty and cheap

Whoever they have cutting the greens misses about a quarter of the grass.......not one straight cut line on 36 holes on both courses I played yesterday......about 1,000 ball marks per green makes it almost impossible to have a pure and true putt........the bunkers are absolutely full of rocks. The course workers at kitty hawk drill holes in the eggs of the geese to control the population but it's not working.....tons of geese and their feces all over the place. I had to move my ball due to about a foot and a half long terd stringer across the line of my put. The course was so backed up with people that it took over 9 1/2 hours to play 36 holes straight through with no stops. when I play Jamaica run for $12 on a hot buy I feel fantastic with that deal but when I pay $12 to play at Kitty Hawk I feel like I paid a little too much.

Sad to see these courses headed downhill

I have watched the steady decline of City of Dayton run golf facilites over many years. I was a Dayton resident for most of my 60 years and enjoyed many pleasurable rounds of golf at all the City courses with co-workers and friends. I golf with a foursome several times a week and we wanted to go back and play what used to be our go-to course ( The Hawk ). The price is reasonable, albeit higher than most public courses. The conditions of the course however are deplorable. Weed infested uneven fairways. Greens that show little sign of maintainence besides the cutting of grass, and fairway bunkers that are miniature gravel pits. We will not be playing there in the foreseeable future, unless there are major updates.

Walking

A lot of people that play here walk. So be prepared for that. The course it self has a good layout and can have it's challenging moments.
