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 have 5 hrs to play 18 holes

Then this course will suit you just fine. But plan on slow play. They always overbook and the staff does not care how long it takes you to play the round .As long as they get their money is their only concern. Very unfriendly staff. The course itself is nice to play with alot of challenges.

Overall the course was good but it is a bit isolated. I knew nothing about the course before playing. You can see that it needs some improvement but that takes money and we know how expensive and tight budgets are. The staff was really friendly and that was enjoyable since it was the first time playing there. Enjoyed the par 3's but found the course to have a few odd holes. If you play there enjoy!

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.

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.
