Course conditions have improved
1st time playing in 2 years. Course was in good shape.
New sand in Green Side bunkers. Fairway bunkers still are need of more sand, but they are taking care of them. Overall very nice facility with upgrades to clubhouse. Great course and 5 sets of tees should make it enjoyable for any type of player. It's good to finally play a course in the area that is not skimping on maintenance.
Great golf course
The golf course is in great shape and the staffs are friendly
Best course with the worst bunkers still!
Use to be a member. Let my membership discontinue as the course was always in good shape but I was always apologizing for the bunkers to my playing partners. That's been 2 years ago. Thought I would try it again under new ownership. Again , course and greens were great. Couldn't play out of the fairway bunkers. Horrible! New owner is more interested in home development than making the course worth $50 per round on the weekend. To many courses are near by for less money. No thanks!
Scheduled a late afternoon 9 holes, hoping to catch the course when it wasn't busy. However there were other like minded players. Around the 6th hole it backed up. However we still finished in good time. Their staff was friendly and helpful.
Follow the Trail
Cumberland Trail has been undergoing an upgrade the last 10-12 months l traps getting redone , new sand and better maintenance . Greens are better than past few years while eyes and fairways getting more attention. It is user friendly to all stages of golfers , from seniors, women and top rate college players with several tee sets at all distances . The inside staff in grill room is top rate as the shop staff are friendly and accomodating . It's a great weekday value at anytime .
Coming Back - $55 is Just Too High
I played yesterday, 1st time since new owners have taken over, and I was pleasantly surprised. The lady that checked us in was very friendly, and got us out quickly. It was $19 with cart for 9 holes, which starting so late I thought was OK, because we only got to play 8 holes. I am optimistic about the turn around after playing last summer and the course being in terrible shape. They are working the traps, cutting down dead trees, and cleaning the course up. What my concern is the cost for 18 holes on the weekend. The board said $55 with cart. Where this course is located, this pricing is what has caused three owners in 4 years. Being on the far east side of Columbus, that rate is way too high. This course should be prime time $42 with cart, and in the afternoon, $35 going down to $25 after 4 in the summer. The course will not get enough revenue to support the course at that rate. Wish they would get a clue, because this could be a nice high end course if they would price it right.
The course is good. If the charge is going to be as much as I paid, the bunkers should be maintained. Very poor condition at this time of the year.
Thank you for your review and feedback. We appreciate you letting us know your thoughts as we continuously strive to provide the best conditions and experience for our golfers!
Really nice condition. Excellent layout. Very nice golf experience.
Thanks for the review! We're glad you had a good time this weekend!

Very nice course, well maintained!!! The only negative, you could not use woods on the driving range.
Scored personal best
I arrived at Cumberland Trail about 30 minutes before my tee time. The staff was reorganizing the pro shop so it looked bare but they had a lot of boxes to unpack. Staff was very friendly. Holes 1-6 breezed by but when I got to the 7th the pace of play slowed to a halt. I was playing as a single so I understand that will happen and had no problem waiting a few extra minutes on the tee. A few extra minutes turned into 10-15 every hole. When I reached the turn, I asked the group in front of me if I could play through. They said sure but said they were slowed by another group. I get to the 10th tee, wait until the group in front got off the green to give them space, when the the group that let me through pulled right in front of me and hurried to the tee. Very frustrating to say the least. There was no ranger on the course to hurry play which would have helped.
good course when price is right
I have played this course many times but will only play it when I can get a good deal. Normal price is to high considering all the other courses around
This course used to be in much better shape. The bunkers are extremely poor to the point of taking a drop if you go in. Greens have slowed considerably over the last few years. Poor quality grounds keeping has killed this course.
The course was under new management and there was no golf attire or anything to purchase at the time. The bunkers were very poor condition. Many of them were mud and not sand. Their computer system was not set up to register the golfnow tee time, so there were a lot of double booked tee times and a long wait out on the course. The greens rolled nice, but the course was very wet from previous rain. Hopefully they get things situated because this was one of the premier courses in the Columbus area.
Greens were good but bunkers need a lot of attention.
This course has a very nice layout
Played this course one time in "99". Loved the greens then and they are still nice. They made some changes on certain holes which makes it my first time playing this course but I'd play it again for sure.
Good for beginners
Nice, short par 5's and easy to pin it close on the 3's.
Fire your greenskeeper
I play here about twice a year. The last two years by far have been the worst I have seen course conditions. And today, was just terrible. Tee's were beat up. Fairways were decent, but littered with weeds, dandelions everywhere and I mean every where. Greens looked burnt up. I am not sure what is going on here, but I would be embarrassed to invite any one from outta town to play here anymore... Hopefully they get it together the layout is just to nice to let go. Oh and yeah one bunker rack on the whole course....
I live close by and have traditionally considered this course as good as any public or private course in Columbus, even becoming a member a few years back. However, more recently the conditions have significantly deteriorated. It started with the bunkers, then the rough got a little spotty. Now it is course wide. Dandelions were everywhere including fairways and tees. The greens were very rough, for this course, although it is still early in the season so im not nearly as concerned about that. The dandelions were as bad as it gets. A poor country course usually doesn't have dandelions. I gave a 2 star rating simply because the staff is as nice as it gets. Cumberland Trail will get my business again this year so that i can measure their progress on improvements, but if it doesnt improve soon im afraid ill steer clear for quite some time.
