Great Track - Being run by knuckleheads

I have bee going on an outing to this course for 21 years. It is a shame that the State of Ohio has decided they do not want to operate golf courses. The contractors they have hired to operate the course seem to have no idea of what they are doing.
Slow checkin and payment
People on maintenance equipment blasting past you during swings.
The course is still in decent shape. Fast greens
I love this course, but not what is happening to it.

Excellent Greens

We had a foursome play there today. We played in 4 hours and was never rushed or held up. The greens were smooth and had a nice pace to them. Would definitely recommend this course

Just tooooo hard

I shot an 82 from the white tees and it was work for 18 holes. Longgggg par 3’s and every hole a dog leg with mountainous hills. For the lesser player.....go somewhere else and have fun.....this place is tough.

Great, scenic layout, but hilly conditions do make this a riding cart round, unless you’re a fit teenager!

I play here 3-5 times a summer and would more but it is at least a 90 minute drive. Good conditions with a challenging layout. It isn’t long, but it doesn’t need to be any longer. This is a shot makers layout and you’ Work isn’t over once on the undulating greens.

Very enjoyable

I love this course. It is very hilly and plays longer than the rated distance as a result. It wasn't crowded at all, it's like having the whole course to yourself.

Hilly course with lots of doglegs

Salt Fork is a challenging course without being particularly long. The numerous hills create a variety of uneven lies, the doglegs demand distance control, and the greens have a good bit of slope.

Challenging course

This course is not long, but it still plays difficult because of the many doglegs, hilly terrain and sloped greens.

Great design by Ohio's Jack Kidwell..

Great gem in Ohio. It's an extremely hilly course. You never have a level stance. Great design by Ohio's Jack Kidwell..if you use gps to drive there be sure to give yourself an extra ten minutes to drive to the course at the end of the park. My gps gave me ETA to the entrance from 22. Under two hours from Columbus. Take your fishing pole and throw in before you head home.

Great deal.

I really enjoy a day at this course. Just about all aspects of your game are tested, and the quick greens....shew. Buckle up if you're above the hole. Well spaced out and tight fairways on most holes. Difficult par 4 and longer par 3 to close out then back up the hill on the final. Nice ending holes. Beer was cold as well!

elevation and greens are great!

try to cut over the trees in the valley hole if you have that shot in your bag. Get a close to the pin on approach shots for low scores, don't over shot the green not good in back of many greens.

mountain golf at its best

The day we played this course it had rained several days prior and the day we had a tee time. Got a good price on golfnow and the rain had actually stopped a few hours before our tee time. The skies were grey and looked threatening so the course had a cart path only policy for that day. We only had a group of 8 or so guys start in front of us but they were nice enough to let me and my wife play through so that we were not on their heels the whole round. Once we got going it was UNBELIEVEABLE!! Not a flat spot on this course.If you like elevation you will love this course!! My wife loved the elevated tees but hated the long walks UP the fairways due to the cart path only stipulation..turned out it was a good amount of steps according to her fitbit. The course was fair and was a bit challenging (hard to find a flat spot on any fairway)especially playing it for the first time. Greens were quick and rolled true and was a treat to play...drove 4 hours from Michigan and I will say it rivals some of the nice courses northern Michigan has to offer(less the dated facilities). Sand traps could use a little love(noticeable stones and small gravel..rough was deep but not overly excessive) and the club house facilities were also a bit long in the tooth. But since it is a State of ohio facility and state budgets these days it is not hard to understand.Hope to play here again in the not to distant future

A must play if you like mountain courses

The views were spectacular. Fairly narrow fairways with large elevation changes and many doglegs.
The greens were in great shape and fast. As with most courses these days, the sand traps had not been raked lately and the sand was hard. Well worth the ninety mile drive drive each way. We ate at a wonderful mom and pop restaurant in Cambridge on the way home. GREAT DAY.

Hilly, but fun

No flat holes, no flat lies, but a nice layout and very pretty scenery. Fun to play at least once or twice a year and a great value with the GolfNow Hot Buy. The greens were pretty fast for mid-October with less grass on the greens - downhill putts were a severe challenge. Saw at least a half-dozen deer and other wildlife.

The course was amazing as always

This is a great course if you know where your ball is going. Very tight fairways and the greens are very tricky. I do plan on going back ..... Always in great shape...
