Split Rock Golf Club was carved from the rolling countryside of northern Pickaway County. Its picturesque design is perfectly in sync with the natural surroundings. Designed by the local design team of Michael Hurzdan and Dana Fry, the golf course actually required little manipulation since much of the challenge comes from the natural features of the undulating terrain. The layout has slightly different nines that offer a diversity that appeals to a range of skill levels. The front nine is more open and forgiving while the back nine has tighter fairways that are lined with trees. Water is not a prominent presence at Split Rock Golf Club but it does come into play. In addition to the golf course, golfers are welcome to use the driving range and putting greens before teeing off.

Worth the drive

I drove 45 min to play this course and I felt indifferent about its value. It’s not the nicest course but definitely worth playing.. It’s a good challenge but playable for average golfers. Not many bunkers or water hazards but trees come into play on several holes. Pace of play was 4 hours with groups at each time. . The tee boxes could use some work but the fairways are good. Greens are good but wish people fixed their divots. They definitely water because greens were holding on approach. I’d play here again but not sure I would drive out of the way.

Split Rock did not disappoint me on my bday outing

The only reason I did not give Split Rock 6 stars was because of the traps that have been abandoned just like almost every other public golf course I play in central Ohio. This course is more than worth a drive to play. The rolling hills and non cookie cutter holes are a challenge and pleasure to play. The greens were rolling fast and fairways were incredibly well watered in light of all the lack of rain we have experienced. Pace of play for our three some was about 3 1/2 hours... always a pleasure to play here, they truly take care of this course and the folks know that without players, all this goes away...

Decent value

Course is a decent value. The pace of play was the biggest plus as we finished 18 in under 4 hours. Course was in good condition considering the lack of rain and heat. Greens were in good condition but the tee boxes were like a stone. I liked the location but the pics are a little deceiving. Course would be beautiful in the fall.

Very nice course

First time playing SR and thoroughly enjoyed our round. Liked that the course was challenging w/o overly penalizing slightly wayward shots. Back 9 was particularly interesting. The course was a bit stressed...presumably due to wet weather followed by high heat. But, overall, the conditions were pretty good. Would definitely come back for another round.

Challenging Greens

The course was in great shape. Fairly open course but the greens make it challenging. They were fast and multiple levels. Best to be below the hole because putting downhill was interesting to say the least. I will play again.

Ranger asked us to play a scramble because they overbooked

First I will start with the positives. The course was in good condition, nice clubhouse and location. We booked an 8:01 tee time and soon discovered that they were tee off every 3 minutes only on hole 1. This of course caused a 15 min delay on teeing off which isn’t a huge deal. The problem began when you have a group of 4, 3 and 4 playing behind each other. The whole front 9 we were waiting on the tee box, waiting too hit our second shot then waiting on the next tee. If that was the end of our problems I wouldn’t have wrote this review. After waiting on a whole to hit our drive, we all hit our first shot and begin driving to the ball. As I get to my ball which is left if he cart path he pulls up to my friend and I and says we are playing too slow and to play best ball. We tell him we’ve been waiting all day it’s not our fault, he drives away. Comes back 5 min later after talking to the guys behind us and says play best ball out of our foursome. Obviously if we were playing slow we would have let the people behind pass but we were playing as fast as safely possible. I can’t say the same for those behind us that hit into us on literally every whole. We payed 40 a peice to play a rushed round of golf with the ranger harassing us along the way. Until they focus on quality over quantity I do not reccomend.

Cody and Keith,

We apologize for your disappointing round on the 25th of August. That day started off with a fog delay so there is no question that the 1st tee would have become backed up by 8am. Our tee times on Saturday's in season run at 7 and 8 minutes apart depending on which day part includes your tee time. Your time was 8:01a and Tom Ceacer's time was 8:08a that particular morning. We certainly apologize for the interaction between the ranger and your group being a negative one. A group had called in to the clubhouse about the pace of play, so there is no doubt that the ranger would have been trying to do whatever he could to assist groups with their pace. It was not our intention to diminish your ability to enjoy your round, which would have been unacceptable had that occurred. It is our desire here at Split Rock to make every round enjoyable to best of our ability. Please reach out to us directly at Splitrockteetimes@gmail.com if you would like to conversate further about what we can do to ensure your next experience with us is a positive one. Thank you for taking the time to review our facility and hopefully we'll see you at The Rock once again.

Fun Course

This course is not real long, and not too difficult. My brother who is about a +6 handicap shot even par. There are holes that can cause your trouble, but overall a very enjoyable course. We will most likely come play again.

the course is excellent to learn on

I haven't played golf very much, so I decided to get a membership at Split Rock, because it was affordable and it will allow me to play more. I enjoy the course very much and it's very challenging for me. Everyone has been very helpful at answering any questions that I have had. If anyone hasn't ever played Split Rock, try it you will like the course

This course needs some attention

Most of the tee boxes weren't level. Golfers don't expect downhill & sidehill lies when teeing off. Also, this is the only course I play where I can't make any putts because the greens make it impossible to read the breaks. The greens need to be "rolled" to eliminate ruts and create a more consistent roll of the ball. The greens also didn't receive approach shots very well, as our shots often would hit and then roll right off the green. Perhaps a little bit more watering would help. There were quite a lot of bare patches throughout the course. A lot of downed branches and twigs were kind of annoying.
