Foxfire Golf Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf, the Foxfire Course and the Players Club Course. The Players Club was added in 1993.The layout is a deft combination of traditional American golf and traditional British links design that provides the perfect complement to the original. The golf course is the more challenging of the two, but not by much. The layout features narrow fairways lined with trees and water hazards on eight holes. There are three particularly tricky carries over water. Strategically placed bunkers and contoured mounding also treacherously lurk by the greensides. The par-4 16th hole is the course's signature. This demanding hole plays uphill through trees to a green that is guarded by five bunkers. The most memorable hole though, might be the par-5 eighth, which features the longest sand bunker in the Midwest.

Bad conditions

This course has always been one of the best in central Ohio but they are tearing up the old course for housing and I think the water has been shut off. I have never seen it in this condition. All of the fairways and greens with a couple exceptions were burnt up. I don’t think they have had water in a long time.iThey are still charging full price and I will not be back until I hear it has recovered

Sad shape of what once was a very good course

Hopefully as the housing project that took over the front course is completed, the Players course can get back to what once was a well maintained challenge as it was years ago. Until I see much improved reviews on a consistent basis, I will not be back as current condition makes one wonder if watering is illegal in that county...very sad.

Golf course was in horrible shape for paying $47. They have not been able to water the course due to water line damage. Fairways literally cracking. Tee boxes , fairways and greens were as hard as concrete.. The fact that we were charged $47 with no advance warning of conditions was really disappointing.

1st Time Playing

Excellent golf course. Beautiful layout. Back side needs work. Trees are over hanging in the fairway on hole 14. Doesn’t matter where you hit your tee shot. Your behind a tree. Course needed some manscaping it was very long. Fairways and greens. Bunkers are crap. Overall 4 stars. Solid Columbus course

Course definitely has issues, but it's a great layout

First time playing here. As other's have said, there's a lot of improvements to be made to this course. Bunkers - they're currently working on it. Sand was being added to most bunkers. Once that's done, they'll be good.
Greens and fairways - overall, significant work is needed. Lots of dead spots, crabgrass everywhere, disease present on some greens.
Bottom line is they need the money to get the course up to what it could be. It will take some time to kill all the weeds and replant or resod to have golf course quality turf.
HOWEVER, I loved the layout of this course. Some holes are prairie style with tall grass, then others are tight with woods on each side . A few short par 4s with risk reward and water in play. A real mixed bag that keeps it interesting. The course is definitely worth checking out, if you go into it not expecting prime conditions. For $45 with cart, it's worth it.
To note: you can't just play 9 as the 9th hole doesn't finish back at the clubhouse. There is a nice halfway house between 9 and 10 to get snacks and use restroom.
It's a pretty difficult course, especially the second 9, so I wouldn't recommend it as a beginners course.

Needs money dumped into it

The sister course is now gone, and bulldozers are on site. The players club course needs that money made off the sister course put into it and hopefully soon. My complaint is that I was golfing solo and came upon a group of 3 who let me go ahead of them after a par three which was super nice of them than I came upon a group of 4 who just let a group of 2 go ahead of them I was thinking they would do the same for me on the next hole since it was a par 3 however this group never let me pass them and slowed down my pace of play to a grinding stop I played the whole back 9 behind a group of 4 that wouldn't let a solo golfer go past them unbelievable

Greens in terrible condition

I understand some of the fairways having some dead turf and bunkers being renovated/not raked because of covid, but the condition of the greens was horrendous. The cups hadn’t been changed in at least a week if not more and the area around the hole was so beat up you could only hit it right at the hole and hope it plinko’d in. Slow is an understatement. You cant forget about the crabgrass all over the course and there was even weeds on most greens. Such a rip-off paying $45 to play here.

Improvement

Remember this course being a hidden gem, but when conditions went bad it was quite saddening. Now that the sister course, Foxfire, has been sold off the conditions are improving. New sand is present, greens are green and fungus free, fairways are pure. A great layout and challenging track. Might be a little pricey but still a great experience.

Not what it used to be

Hadn't played Players in a few years and I was a bit disappointed. It used to be in great shape and well kept, but I couldn't tell the difference between it and a muni course today. The greens were in horrid shape and the fairway was really long. I definitely wouldn't recommend playing here at full price. If you're playing Players for over $35, you're paying too much. It's not much better than Foxfire at this point.

First time playing his course

the course was challenging luckily my son was teaching me where to play the ball and the course management. Pace of play has got to improve. we were flying along until we meet up with a threesome who did not let us play through I don't care if you are good or not. we were hitting into them for the last six holes and they still would not let us pass through.

Challenging greens

This is a good course. They need to have restrooms between the clubhouse and the turn. On hot days and you hydrate waiting nine holes is not always possible. To not have them, encourages people to "go old school " - gross.

$$$

First off let me say it's great to see they are putting in work on their bunkers adding new sand still a work in progress though. I golfed here last year and was sad to see how badly run down the course was and is. Some of the fairways need work along with a few greens tee boxes are in good shape. From what I can tell someone new must be in charge hopefully they are spending the money to bring back this once excellent course the players club however $42 is a lot for the condition of the course. Please get new hole plaques with yardage and maybe the layout of the hole that would be great because it's not 2015 old and faded hole plaques are not good

Great day of golf

quick pace as everyone has their own cart. Course in very good condition, greens were fast. Only issue was sand traps, luckily I didn't hit in one, but they haven't added sand yet. Overall great course design, challenging holes and greens made it a fun round
