Great Layout, Great Conditions except...
I love this course. The layout is fantastic and can get very challenging on a few holes. The condition (grass) of the course was decent except it looked like they didn’t mow the tee boxes and aprons all weekend. Very furry! The bunkers are a disgrace. Not sure what exactly is in them but it appears to be dirt instead of sand. They were practically cement the day I went which makes playing a traditional bunker shot impossible as you cannot dig in and hit 2 inches behind the ball without blading it 20 yards beyond the green. Some bunkers even had visible tree roots popping out of them. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE fix the bunkers!!!!!
Great but for the pace
Very nice course. Laid out well, generally good condition except for the bunkers which were a disaster. All in all, it would have been an enjoyable place to play if it wasn't for the pace. Playing at a course like this on a Saturday afternoon at 4pm, one would expect to be able to play consistently. Not the case here. It took an hour to play 3 1/2 holes. Ultimately, we had to skip 5 holes just to get ahead of things and finish or else we wouldn't have finished in time before it got dark. Really disappointing for a course I was really looking forward to playing.
Excellent Course, Excellent Experience
A hidden gem. Friendly staff. Practice area is in good shape as was the course; tee boxes were well maintained, well irrigated and lush green fairways, adequate rough depth and soft conditioned greens. Mature trees, bunkers and water on some holes provides a challenge, but is scenic. This is a hard course to walk due to the elevation changes; better to ride. Just stay off the path; the paths contained lots of broken sections and really jeered the driver and the clubs.
Respecting tee time
Overall we had a wonderful round of golf at the Players Club as we expected. However, when I booked the round on Golf Now, the tee time given to me was 9:03 am and we arrived more than 30 minutes prior. When I went to make payment, we were told our tee time was now 9:20. Not a big deal on Sunday, but this was the first time this has happened to me.
Love the layout of the course and it’s challenging greens. Dandelions were abundant so that was a little disappointing and the reason for the 3 on conditions. Will be back though.
Good as Always!
Always fun to play The Players. Course was in very good shape, except for the bunkers (and they were busy working on those while we were playing). Always fun --- the entire course is fun but always look forward to holes #14-#16, which are an immense challenge! Go play it!
Great golf course and excellent service!
What a great way to start the season! I had an amazing time playing last friday. The fairways and greens were in great shape. Specially the greens, you can tell they take care of their greens.
I know some people commented on the quality of the bunkers last year, but it seems like they have worked on them lately, because most of them are in really good shape, there are only a few bunkers that need some work, but nothing major.
Regarding the service, what can I say.... It's top notch! This really made a difference for me. Customer service was amazing from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. I called the clubhouse when we reached hole No.9 to ask if they had a beverage cart working, we didn't expect it at 5pm, but we called and asked anyway. They didn't have the cart out at that time, but they asked us what we needed and actually took our order and delivered it to the course. You can't really beat that! Thanks to Vince for such amazing customer service. We'll be back for sure!!
Beautiful day, wish my game was the same.
All though it had rained cats and dogs that morning the course was in nice shape and the greens ran true. This is one of my favorite places to play. A wonderful course. The only negative thing I can say is that bunkers need to either be filled in or added to. Or I guess just don't hit I'm them. Still a wonderful place to play.
The fox was a great value
The bunkers were the only thing in need of attention. In fairness to the course however they had experienced a tremendous rainstorm the previous evening. This course is always a wonderful challenge and typically in wonderful shape.
Great layout in excellent condition. Highly recommend.
Second time I've played here. Last time was 8 years ago. I'm not sure why I haven't been back before now. Very nice layout and quite challenging. The greens and fairways were in excellent shape. Both are bent grass. Yes, the cart paths and bunkers are a disaster. Oh well. financial constraints are always an issue with rural daily fee courses. Many of the bunkers are essentially unplayable and should be considered ground under repair. The ones that are playable require a low bounce small flange 60, 62, or 64 degree lob wedge. Very hard under the small layer of sand. One of the employees said they are probably going to let some of them go to grass. If you know about the paths and the bunkers before the round you should have no other complaints,....well....except maybe for a few of the greens. Some are far too contoured and too difficult for a public course. If you played here regularly you would learn them and learn were NOT to miss on your approach shots. Where to never be long, never be left or right if the pin is in this or that position, etc., etc. Some are just too difficult for their own good and really slow down play. On the whole however, I did enjoy the course and I will return this summer for sure.
Best value in central Ohio!
Great course at a great value
The course was in great condition, except that the bunkers were all dried up and not tended to. Pace of play was great. Staff was very friendly. Greens were fast once the sun dried them up. Like the title say's, it's a great value for a tough and challenging course.
A fun course to play. #'s 14,15, and 16 are very tough; long with narrow fairways. Bogey is a great score on any of the three. Course has other tough holes with some easier holes mixed in. Always try to play there a couple of times every season.
Some challenging par 5's
The bunkers weren't done, awful but the course was in great shape
Nice layout and course. Challenging. Traps needed sand prepared better. Some hard some washed out Overall great value. Just steer clear of bunkers!
great evening of golf: FIrefox Players Course
The summer in central Ohio was tough and many courses, including this one, show it. While the bunkers are less than desirable, the greens and fairways are in good shape. The greens are quick and there is plenty of water! I play golf 2-3 times a week on public and private layouts and this course is a gem. Very challenging layout. It has fairly narrow fairways, some blind tee shots, and the occasional unknown tee shot yardage, but I really enjoyed this course. Playing it more than once would definitely lower the stroke average!
Good and bad
Like so many courses in Ohio, this course is not what it used to be. We ended playing every bunker as ground under repair. They have n. They just don't have the money to maintain them - they need to sod most of them over - no shame in that. Clubhouse is bare bones as far as merchandise. Cart paths are in disrepair. That being said, the greens were in great shape. Fairways were good, tee boxes in decent shape. Challenging layout. Compared to the few courses left, Foxfire is a decent value and hopefully they will make it.
