Excellent Conditions

If you haven't played Vista this year you are missing out. It is in excellent shape and the greens are in great shape as well.

It's well worth the trip to Nashport.

Terrible conditions

The course like many others in central Ohio is in terrible condition. Lucky for my foursome we found a deal on golfnow that couldn't be passed up. If we would have paid the full rate I would have been upset.

Save Your Money

This course is very rough. The only thing that made this course challenging is you never hit off of grass no matter where your ball goes. Save your time and money! I won't be back.

Nice

Nice course - not plush, but in very good condition for mid-October. A good test from the white tees. There is not much difference between the white tees and the blues. Seniors and women's tees are considerably forward. A very flat course, so wind can add to the challenge. A really good value for the GolfNow price.

I think this would be an ok course to play if u lived close. Just a course with no character. The same hole 14 times and par 3s.

pack a drink

As far as club house, food prices are not bad. Buying Gatorade in club house will cost you 2.25 per bottle!!!!! A little steep if you're asking me.

Course is in pretty good condition. Not many ball marks on the greens and the tee boxes were being cared for during my round.

Vista

Played here for $12. Super deal. I rate this course so high because I know where it was a few years ago before Lepi bought it. They've completely saved this course. I Like the people who work there. Greens were good. Fairways were a little high but playable.

This course is a bargin at the price

I have played this course about once a year for a few years. I can see a lot of improvement in the facilities and the course. Challenging in length with forgiving fairways. The greens have show a lot of improvement as well. A little better than average and decent vaue for your $.

This is a very open course

This was my first time playing this course. I found it to be a challenging course. The Staff was very friendly and very helpful. The greens were fast and very well taken care of. I will go back and play this course again before the end of the golf season.

Course on the Comeback

Vista has made great strides in the last two years! The new ownership has made a major investment in the course and it shows. Fairways used to be sparse and more weed than grass, now they are almost lush. The once nonexistent rough has grown in and the thick bluegrass should be avoided if possible. Trees have been trimmed and cut back, improving shot values and pace of play. If you have played the course in the last 10 years you probably remember a baked out course where your drives would run 300+ yards and you could hit it anywhere and still score. Do yourself a favor and give the course another look. It is playing much longer and you better keep it in the fairway if you want to keep it under 90.

Excellent Value

The title above is "Excellent Value" even though the website seems to have distorted that. Based on the GolfNow price compared to other prices for courses in the area makes this the bargain of the entire state. The course was in good shape and challenging. We finished our round just before the heavens opened up!!!
