Jamaica Run Golf Club offers one of the most challenging layouts in the Miami Valley. The difficult greens provide most of the trouble. They are small and hard to hit and on many holes they are elevated above the fairway, making it hard to play a run-up shot. The bentgrass fairways are spacious and thankfully more forgiving, but they are bordered by thick rough. Water hazards come into play on several holes. There is even one hole that crosses the meandering creek that runs through the golf course twice. The par-5 18th provides a memorable finish, requiring a tee shot past a large pond to a fairway that sits well below the pond. Finding the right club to use and a good spot to hit are nearly impossible.

This is a country course that is challenging. .Dave the pro is always friendly and remembers my name. Course tees were resting so we teed it up on the temporaries, not unusual for this time of year. Greens were in good shape and fast.

The course was in overall good condition. The bunkers are too small and not the greatest. The staff is always friendly but the food and bar is weak.

Decent value for the price.

Was in very poor condition TBoxes were so hard you couldn't hardly get a Tee in the ground. While we are on the subject of T boxes when we walked in to pay there was a sign that the T boxes were going to be getting watered. On a Sunday Morning you decide to water the TBoxes one of my group members was standing over one of the sprinklers watching me drive in the middle of my back swing ours turns on he got soaked our carts got soaked our wife's got soaked. Unbelievable. The fairways and greens were rock hard. Mind you our area has what you would call a above average rain this summer so much so I still haven't had to water my own yard. Not that we don't mind a challenge while playing but pin locations was pretty much impossible. We even took a picture of one hole it was literally 7 feet on the front side of the green. And 15 feet from the bunker on the right. A lot of the holes were front pin locations. Combine that with hard fairways and greens pretty much impossible. I have enjoyed this course of the years but it is going down hill fast. Really not worth the 39 x 2 me and wife cost to play. When 10 more bucks gets you to play really nice courses.

Nice course, and the staff was approachable. It was pretty crowded, and they stood firm on sending everyone off on the same 9. It would've been a more efficient approach to send some off on the other 9. What should've been a 3 1/2 hour round turned in to a 5 hour round.

First time playing this course. Signed in and asked if there was anything i needed to know. Just told me to have a good time. The ranger came out on 9th hole, yelled at us and left. Can't have the golf cart on the course past the green striped poles. Didn't know that and it wasnt explained. On the back 9 we caught up with the group in front of us. They were playing 2 balls a piece. It took for ever to finish. Had another group on a different hole constantly yelling. Asked them to be quiet while we tee off and they wanted to fight us.. was not a fun time. Will not be going back!

The greens were in great shape and fast. The price I paid was great but I wouldn't pay full price. Plus, I made it through 3 holes and it started pouring down rain. Went in to get a rain check the gentleman said I couldn't get a rain check but I could get a credit to use towards a full priced golf play. So I paid $16 with fees on golf now and full price was $34. So basically if I want to come back and finish playing I have to pay full price. NOT!

Hello, the reason we were not able to give you a rain check is because you booked a Hot Deal tee time. However, if you call golfnow and let them know that your tee time got rained out they will be able to refund you.

yesterday 6/12/17 we found jamaicas twilight rate was $10 for 18 with a cart after 6 pm. we called and booked a 6pm tee time for $10 for 18 with a cart. when we get there the guy behind the counter said that price is only for 9 with a cart. and called us liars. so i pulled out my phone and showed him their posted online rates, he still would not honor their posted rates. said it was an error. but as of today it is still posted at that price.

add in their general rudeness from most employees, not all, but most. i will not be back
