Length 6587

Rating 70.8
Type Public
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.

If you haven't played here in awhile

Haven't played here in a few years. Was never a fan but the course was in great shape and they now have the fairways watered so even in late July fairways are in great shape. Some of the greens are chewed up but overall very happy we played here for $30.

Great Value!!

This course is a bit of a drive but I think it was well worth the money! Course was in pretty good shape other than a few spots on a green or two. Not an overly challenging course, very open fairway with plenty of grace if you miss the fairway. There are a few holes with near 90° doglegs that require some thinking and most of the par 3’s are fairly long so that’s nice. All in all, I think this is a great course for the money and would definitely play again! P.S. My cart was fast so that’s always fun!

Nice course

Pace of play was great. No waiting until the last 3 holes. Course was in decent shape and doesn't have a lot of trouble. Some areas seemed to be burnt out for some reason and some of the greens were rough. Overall, not bad.

Getting Better this Season

This is about the 4th times I've played here since March. They fixed the dandelion problem that was there early spring and put new sand in the bunkers. The course is slightly improved each time I play, cant beat it for the price.

Jamaica Run

Great course near Germantown Ohio. A couple sharp fairway turns and a blind shot from the 18th tee box. Absolutely love this course.

Layout of this course lacks imagination

The layout of this course lacks imagination. I found myself frequently hitting the same club with somewhat the same shot way too often. Greens are flat with not much break (except for #18 which had some) Other than 3 holes every hole was straight. There was a lot of clover in the fairways. We were restricted to cart path because of the rain but that didn't seem to matter to the regulars they were driving all over the place. The regular patrons of this golf course don't seem to care about the place as there were way too many divots in the fairways and ball marks on the greens.
