Rating 72.9

Delaware Golf Club sprawls across rolling countryside that lends an idyllic and secluded setting. Donald Ross designed the original nine holes in 1922 and they were later joined by a second nine designed by Michael Hurzdan in 1998. The layout meanders through wooded valleys and ravines. The rolling fairways are fairly wide but they are lined with mature trees and bunkers heavily guard the small, undulating greens. There are also water hazards that come into play on a number of holes. Delaware Golf Club's second hole is notably challenging, it is arguably the toughest hole on the front nine. This par-4 requires not only accuracy in order to avoid the ravine on the left but also distance to carry the lake and remain in the angled fairway. Golfers will be faced with one of the most difficult putts on the golf course if their approach finds the wrong side of the green.

Plenty of time to check emails

Played for the first time yesterday and enjoyed the course conditions and layout.. Course did not have enough carts. The course did not have a starter and getting off on first hole was a free for all.. Some holes backed up two groups deep.. charged for 18 holes... even though tee of time dictated a twilight rate.. Pace of play only allowed for 9 holes.. Staff was very misleading on delays and did not help the situation.. This course has potential but was poorly run on this date..

The Donald Ross and Hurzdan/Fry nines are obviously very different, yet both are challenging and fair. I hadn't played the Ross course since my college days when OWU hosted their tournament here. It’s held up very well, as most Foss courses do.

You won’t be disappointed

The golf coarse today was in amazing shape.
Very clean, all leaves were blown. Fairways and greens were immaculate with great detail normally found at Some of the best courses in Ohio. I will be playing this coarse often. Great job Delaware gold club. A+.

just fine

This course have more hills than anywhere else in central Ohio, except Longaberger?, and a lot of water, so it's pretty challenging. The folks are nice, and handle the crowd well.

Nice kept fairways and greens

First time playing is tough as tees and pathways to tees are very confusing. Grounds are well maintained, winds around residential areas and roads.

Slow day

This course is the best public course that you will find. Pace of play was absurdly slow today, 4 hrs 40 min. Some tee boxes are in desperate need of repair. Love seeing the course busy, but hate it when I get stuck in it.

Late August 2020 - Course in Great Shape

Played late August 2020 - course was in great shape. Tee boxes were soft and in good shape. Fairways were nicely mowed and you could take a nice divot. Greens were well-trimmed and rolled true. Some were faster than others, which is to be expected given how much shade some pasta is this course get. Rough was long and challenging, but not impossible to hit out of. This course has a challenging layout and rewards accurate shots. I experienced a lot of trouble with shots hit out of bounds and into hazards, but I had fun playing the course.
