Crystal Springs Golf Club tumbles across the rolling hills of western Muskingum County. The undulating terrain provides gently sloped greens and elevated tees from which there are scenic views of the surrounding countryside. The golf course has a links-style layout that will appeal to a variety of different skill levels. The ample greens vary in shape and the player-friendly fairways have generous landing areas. There are six ponds that come into play on half of the holes as well as nearly 40 strategically placed sand bunkers throughout. The course's signature hole is the par-4 ninth hole. This tricky hole features water along the right side of the fairway and green and out-of-bounds stakes along the left, as well as a large sand bunker lurking treacherously behind the green.

I found this course on a whim while driving through the area. It is not far off I-70, but you'd never know it's there from the highway. The links-style course is surrounded by fields and is exposed to the wind the whole way.

The gentleman in the clubhouse was nice enough to explain all the holes to me before I started. From there I had the best ball striking round of my life. So if you bring your A-game you can score here as you go up and down the hills. Be smart off the tee and do not try to pound away - lay back when needed. There are some blind shots too, so don't be afraid to peek ahead before hitting.

The course was in solid shape for February, and I will return sometime in season and see what it's like then. I easily recommend this hidden gem to anyone nearby or traveling through the area.

A great course. The location is convenient, just off of I-70.

The design is challenging with some holes bordering on devious.

Length isn't a factor, but your second (third, fourth, fifth, etc.) shot is.

Course conditions were very good. If players understood how to fix a ball mark on the green the course condition would be excellent. It's not that hard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkXZ8cD010M

The owner of the course deserves the minimal effort that it takes.

It was worth the drive from Columbus and it'll be worth the driive again.

We love this course, when its not dry! You cant just hit driver off of the tee as you will want to lay up wisely on some holes. Course was in wonderful shape!! We do wish they had water available on the couse, if there is a negative to say. But would recommend this little Gem to all caliber of players!!!!

It has been a couple years since I played the course, but found it very enjoyable again. Course was in excellent shape, green and plush. The only small problem that I found (very small), some of the tee boxes were hard. Broke a few tees trying to push them in. It was a fun round....highly recommend!

This course in in excellent shape for August in a relatively dry summer, course played nicely, water became my enemy on a couple holes, but all in all had a great score even with 2 lost balls. The tiered tee-boxes are very nice, and offer great views. With some tweaking, maybe a clubhouse re-model, this is pushing it's way to a solid 4.5 star course. The blind shots are challenging, but the marker flags are ideally placed to give you the guidance you need to hit the ball WHERE it needs to go.
