About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6939
Slope 135
Rating 72.3
Type Public
Pipestone Golf Course is an Arthur Hills design that has been acclaimed as the best public course in the Dayton area. The name of the course comes from blue clay soil that is buried deep in the ground. The native Indians of the area would use it for making pottery and they would call it pipestone. Nestled amongst rolling hills, the golf course offers plenty of elevation changes. The undulating greens and fairways are kept in immaculate condition but they rarely offer a flat lie. The front nine is particularly challenging with several holes that are framed with tress and crisscross over the same creek. Pipestone Golf Course's second hole is one of the toughest with a water hazards and a fairway that is severely sloped right to left.

Great Course !!

Great course that is challenging that gives you a lot to consider when playing. A lot of slope with rolling fairways, doglegs left & right, up and down with some bottle neck fairways and the greens were in great condition. Awesome layout with risk and reward holes ..

The green are not easy to reed and ondulated

We play in 4 hours what’s good for Sunday afternoon. Some holes have a blind shot you need someone to look where your ball stop. We play this cours 3 time and always a good experience.

Pipestone

Pace of Play was really slow. Also the members will constantly ask you to play thru which got really annoying. Pipestone's conditions were great for a round in January. Staff is always extremely nice. This course does give you great value for the money. If you are looking for a course to challenge you with scenic views, Pipestone is the place. I really like the layout of this course. Par 5's can be a bear from the Men's tees. The Par' 3's will make up for it though. Off-Course amenities are great.

Extremely over booked.

It took 6 hours to finish 18. Waited 20 minutes per hole. Had lines at every whole. Terribly disappointed. Will never return.

Worst I've seen at this course, by far!!

The course was soooo dried out, it didn't make it fun in any way. The fairways and greens were like blacktop. We had to move our balls out of the fairways and into the rough just to get a decent shot. On hole 6, I used a lob wedge to chip over a tree, and it came straight down onto the green, and instead of doing what it should have done (any other green, this shot would have stuck, and probably had backspin), the ball bounced straight up in the air at least 50 feet like it was bouncing off the cart path, and then bounced its way off the back side of the green, bouncing even more in the rough, and landed 50 yards past the green, from a 100 yards out. I've never hit a lob wedge 150 yards. This course was ridiculously dry. I used to love this course, but haven't been for a few years. It is in no way worth the money they charge now. I won't be back.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Course in good condition but they were actively aerating/ punching the greens which made putting frustrating and took away from what should have been an good experience. There was no mention on Golf Now that the greens where being altered, no discount at the pro shop for playing on punched greens. Had I known I would never have made the trip.

Thank you for the review. It is our goal to provide an experience that exceeds Guests expectations. In this case the greens were being verticut, a bimonthly practice to better putting surfaces. The course was not aerified, which is much more intrusive practice that we make special note of on all reservation systems. I hope you will consider returning to Pipestone soon and experience the great playing conditions we strive to deliver.

Great course/poor management

We played at 5pm and were told it was open. As soon as we finished the first hole, we waited anywhere from 5-10 minutes between shots. The pace of play was terrible. We didn't get a chance to even finish the 18. They put too many people on too close together and then did not regulate the poor players which caused a chain reaction of waiting. The course and the staff were very friendly. However, for the price of the course, not looking to play there anytime soon with that pace.
