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.

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.

First time playing Homestead Springs with the only reason to come back is will it be in better condition in the summer? It is an average layout with a few interesting holes. The course unfortunately had aerated many of the fairways and left all the big dirt plugs on the fairway. The result, no roll in the fairway especially on a second shot that needed to go under a tree and try to run it up onto the green.

Slope and pace of greens not for the faint of heart. Course was in good shape and layout favorable though back nine drainage ditches presented some extra challenge only playing it for the second time ever.

This is a solid course that is just outside of town.

If it has rained hard, call ahead as they do flood out pretty easily.

Some approachable greens and risky opportunities can let you score low, but if you tend to go left, you'll get behind fast early as holes 2, 3, and 4 all have OB on the left!

Back 9 feels longer with the tougher Par 5's

THIS COURSE DOES NOT DESERVE A 4 STAR RATING!! IT LOOKS LIKE A FARMER TURNED HIS CORN FIELD INTO A GOLF COURSE. IF YOUR BALL LANDS OUTSIDE THE FAIRWAY, ITS PASTURE GRASS AND WEEDS. THE GREENS ARE SMALL AND THE GRASS MUST ONLY BE CUT ONCE A WEEK, BECAUSE IT WAS LONG, EVEN AROUND THE PUTTING SURFACE. THE PICTURE ON THEIR WEBSITE, MUST HAVE BEEN TAKEN DURING THE RAINY SEASON, BECAUSE IT WAS VERY DRIED OUT. PLAY THE CUMBERLAND COURSE, ITS WORTH THE MONEY.
