Formerly known as Greenville Country Club, Turtle Creek Golf Course has been around since 1921, making it one of the area's oldest courses. Despite its long history, the relatively unknown course is known as one of the Miami Valley's best-kept secrets. It has a traditional layout that sprawls across acres of lush countryside, situated just outside of Greenville. The landscape is fairly wooded, requiring a bit of accuracy in order to maneuver through some of the narrow openings provided by the trees. There is a stream meandering across the golf course that comes into play on several holes. A few strategically placed bunkers also lurk around some of the greens. Turtle Creek Golf Course is player friendly enough for beginners but it is still an interesting round for more advanced players.

Being an old private country club it has several tight fairways and small greens. There are a few holes that play well for a big hitter but accuracy off the tee is needed. Great value for sure.

Decent course for the money, pretty challenging and in OK shape, some of the greens need work to fix bare areas and bad spots.

Would love to see them add yardage markers, other courses use colored stakes, rocks etc, that are easy to see and gives you yardages fast, would speed up play.

This course offers an extremely challenging round of holes that are played out with tree lined fairways for most of this course. Long par three's are a wonderful challenge as well. After your round you can eat an entire meal at the restaurant or cool yourself down with an ice cold beer or mixed drink at the bar. Excellent service with friendly employees ready to take your orders.

Turtle Creek is one of the nicest public course that my golf group has played this year. The course is well maintained, even though we have had an abundance of rain this year. The course, for me was challenging, with plenty of mature trees and some tight dog legs. The course layout is absolutely beautiful, with rolling hills, creeks and ponds. The clubhouse was nice with the usual burgers, wings and hotdogs. They have a bar which serves alcohol for those interested.

First time being here. Had heard good things. Caught a HOT Deal, me and two buddies. The weather was beautiful, the fairways were nice, and the greens, fast. We had an awesome experience! The greens were very challenging, the fairways were tight, on the back 9. Overall we were impressed with the course. We plan on returning sometime in the near future.

Great course not managed well.

When your pushed along and cant enjoy the round it doesn't matter how the course was..

Two of the three of us have never played the course. the group behind refused to play through and kept hitting into us. We turned the front 9 in 2 hours and 5 minutes. Then were told to pick up the pace on the back 9.

Total time of round 4hours 10 and it wasn't fast enough for the management.

I will never go back to this course! If you cant play faster than That I would not play here!!!!

Worse time I've had on a golf course in 2 Years!!!
