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.

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.

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.

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.

Good course just a short drive south of Columbus. Good layout but tee boxes needed a lot of work in most areas. Staff were very friendly and a ranger stopped and had a nice chat with us while we were waiting on the 16th tee. My only complaint is the pace of play. We had a twosome with a very slow foursome ahead of us that I thought should have let us play through multiple times.

Took my son out to this course yesterday.

Our first time playing here and even though it's quite a haul from Dublin...we'll come back.

Tee boxes are definitely in rough shape but fairways and greens are holding up well.

Golf carts were filthy but ran fine.

Not busy so pace of play was great. 3.5 hours for 18.

The course was in the middle of nowhere and while in decent shape overall the greens were chewed up. The course layout is rather easy with perhaps 3 bunkers on the entire course in places only a hacker would hit. Heard several local players commenting on their low handicap. If your not a single digit handicap on this course I would consider switching to tennis.

Only got a chance to golf the first 9 holes. Pace of play was 1.5 hours for 9 holes so ahead of schedule, made it to 10th tee box and found a line of golfers waiting to tee off. Went to hole 1 to maybe golf the front 9 twice and found the same thing. Come to find out, which was unbeknownst to me, they have golf leagues that play 4 days a week in the afternoon. Never finished the course and confronted a gentlemen working there about a rain check for 9 holes. I eventually got one but he did not seem happy nor eager to give one to me. A nice golf course if you can avoid the leagues. Not sure why they aloud me to play in the first place to be honest.

Played with a group of 3 who have played this course before so I was able to gain some advice on a few holes, which allowed me to enjoy my first round here as there were a few holes that can get the average golfer into some trouble. The greens were nice and soft allowing anything to stick and the course layout was pleasant yet challenging. I will definitely play here again.
