Rating 72.0
Type Public
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.

Nice course. Booking process is questionable.

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.

Awesome course

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.

Nice course. Pace of play is awful.

I enjoy the course layout and they maintain it well. My issue is with the pace of play and the lack of care from the staff. My round took 5 hours.When I called and asked if there was a marshall to check pace of play they told me the course was playing at the proper speed. The front 9 took us 2 hours and 40 minutes. I feel like the staff was dismissive.

The course is alright for play. It was in fall condition. They were aeriating the tee boxes which were extremely hard. For the price I couldn't have done much better.

Fall Shape

Course is in typical fall shape, solid greens with minimal stress spots in roughs/fairways from a hot summer. Always worth the price and I got a nice discount for playing after an outing. Took less than 30 minutes from Upper Arlington to get there.

Altercation in the Parkin Lot

I can't believe the owner and staff allowed my group to be verbally assaulted by one of the course residents. The fact that this resident had his handgun with him didn't help matters. The resident is a known problem, and yet nothing was done to shield us or warn us. To be clear, my partner hit out of the resident's backyard. The assault that resulted was ridiculous.

Mr. Barr,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments.

Since your altercation occurred we have taken measures to ensure it will not happen again. Never would the owners nor staff condone such an incident and to apologize for the unfortunate occurrence. To be more precise though, your group member was trespassing off of golf course property. He also had broken state law by bringing his own alcoholic beverages on the facility and appeared intoxicated. We would love the chance to speak with you further about the matter should you have the time. Please feel free to contact us at Splitrockteetimes@gmail.com

Great learners course

Splitrock is a great course to get in and out of. The layout is pretty open and forgiving for a novice or beginner. One of my favorite courses for the money

Split Rock Labor Day

Nice track with good greens despite being obviously weathered by recent hot weather in the area....dry conditions made holding greens challenging. Load up on beverages at the clubhouse as nothing out on the course.

Hot day of golf

The easiest check-in at the club house I've ever experienced . Staff was super nice and helpful on how to play a few holes. Condition of corse was as good as can be expected with weather the way it has been lately. Looking forward to playing again soon, hoping the temperature will be under 90 next time.

Good for the Golf Now Price Hot Deal

Good practice course. Play here by myself a lot and usually meet up with great people. Fairways are the only down side. Hard to tell rough from fairway. Regular price would probably be a disappointment but the hot deals are a great value here.

Great course, just one hiccup

I was overall satisfied with my experience, would give it an 8/10. My only small problem was we tee'd off at 1:20 and were told leagues went off at 4. Finished the front 9 in under 2 hours and saw that the leagues we're going off around 3:30. Unfortunately, we were not able to play the back which was a bit disappointing considering we drove over 45 minutes to play the course. Overall I had a great time and played the front 9 twice.

Great Course for the Money

Course was in great shape especially for it being extremely hot with high heat index. We played at 1130am. They had the water on watering the greens. Even with that the greens were really fast. Most if not all greens were cut nice, just a tad damp. We had a great time. Pace of play about 4 hours for 18 holes. Would go back for sure.
