Although Homestead Springs Golf Course is just a few minutes southeast of Columbus, the surrounding countryside provides an idyllic atmosphere. It has a convenient location that is easily accessible from Central Ohio. The course is mostly flat, which makes it easy to walk, but there is some strategic mounding that can cause tricky uneven lies. Overall though, the golf course is not meant to pose an impossible challenge. It has an approachable, player-friendly layout that was designed for all skill levels to enjoy, but there are still a variety of challenges that will keep you on your feet. The course boasts excellent green conditions with putting surfaces that roll fast and true. The greens vary in size from small to medium. Water hazards come into play as well as a few strategically placed bunkers.

Great, fun course.

This course is always in great shape. The bunkers are some of the best in central Ohio.

Fairways are in great shape. The rough can be unforgiving. I really enjoy playing at Homestead Springs.

Played the course on a Sunday morning with a friend. The fairways are reasonably forgiving, trees not so dense that you can't find an errant shot (a challenge for a new golfer like me), and while there aren't a lot of bunkers, they appear often enough to make you think. Course conditions were damp, thanks to a bit of overnight rain and the dense dew from the summer humidity. This made the greens slow, but they sped up by the time we were on the back nine and the summer sun dried them out.

It was an enjoyable 18 holes of golf; we'll be back.

One of the nicest "Mom and Pop" courses in the area.

There is nothing "amazing" about this place. No fancy clubhouse, fantastic driving range, etc. what you get is a well run family type operation. The course itself is like 2 courses. Front nine very short and "get table". The back nine is a killer, very long with the ever present creek running through it.

Staff is always friendly. We go a few times a year, yet the guy at the snack bar remembers what we like to get at the turn.

Course is in excellent shape, greens ran a little slow, but still held a well hit approach shot. You will need your ball repair tool here, so please fix your ball marks. Pace was about 3 and 1/2 hours on a nice Thursday afternoon. Play here when you can, you won't be disappointed.

Course in good shape

Went off back side first in early cool morning. Fairways in good shape. Greens were fast. Made the turn around 10am to the front. Some greens were pretty beat up and burnt but were being maintained. Front side greens were super slow and was hard to make the speed adjustment between from and back greens. Overall in great condition!

Always pleasant out in farm country

Nice course out in the country. Not real long. Not real fancy, but generally in good shape with very nice, very small, very quick, and very challenging greens for a modest inexpensive country course.

If you aren’t accurate with your approach shots your chipping and pitching better be sharp or you won’t score worth a darn.

Great conditions

Very lush and best conditions I’ve ever seen here. Greens were nearly perfect and bordering on scary fast. They are rolling them now and you could definitely tell. Do NOT short side yourself or get above the hole. The course looks like a pushover on the scorecard but the small fast heavily sloped greens are her defense.

Nice parkland style course

Great value for the course. Nicely maintained. Some risk/reward type holes which are always fun . . . especially if playing in a group!

Solid course, challenging, small greens

The course is in great shape. The fairways aren't too wide, which is good but the greens are very small. Great course to really work on your approach shots.

Great recreational course

Course was beautiful, well maintained condition. Greens were smooth and lush. Enjoyed every hole. My only negative is the lack of yardage markers.
