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.

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

The pace of play was slow. Goose droppings everywhere on greens and tee boxes. All the bunkers were either under water or solid mud, not playable. No water on course, either.

One of the most challenging & difficult courses in Columbus that is highlighted by Holes 15, 16, & 17. This course is a strong test for experienced golfers. I regard this course as one of the elite courses in central Ohio. However, I was extremely disappointed in its current condition. Not a single bunker had been raked for play on Labor Day and nearly every bunker had standing water & mud! Very disappointing for a course of this reputation. Many dead/dying trees need cut down.

the course was excellent and extremely challenging. the course was very clear for us until about 7th hole and we let two singles pass us on back to back holes. the only bad came when a thunderstorm popped up and rained us out of the back nine. i'm in hopes we can get a rain check for the back nine...the course mgr already stipulated to me that he would vindicate our claim.
