Type Public
Blacklick Woods Golf Course belong to the city parks of Columbus. They include one nine-hole course and an 18-hole course. The longer layout has ranked as one of the top 10 most difficult public golf courses in Greater Columbus. Green, the nine-hole course, presents all the same challenges but on a smaller scale that is more approachable for beginners. The layout has an interesting mix of par 3s and par 4s with sand traps, trees, and water coming into play throughout. Both courses sprawl across acres of lush, carefully preserved land that provides stunning scenery. The courses have been certified as Audubon Internal Cooperative Sanctuaries for their dedication to environmental protection. Given the quality of the design and excellent conditions of the golf courses, both provide an unbelievable value for the money.

Great Public Course, Ex-Country Club

I played this course in my church golf outing. The weather was miserable (it was raining), but the golf course was in very good shape. Greens were firm and fair. Probably the best public golf deal in Columbus, particularly for seniors. First, if the Metro Parks Board had not stubbornly refused to lower their fees last year, they would have better usage now. Second, if the course got a little marketing, it would really help. Finally, if the course had a food service and served beer and wine, it would have much better golfer use.

Top 10

This course is normally in the top 10 hardest courses in Ohio conversation. Pace of play can be an issue at times, but mostly on weekends. Blacklick is part of the parks department, so there is no houses and tons of wildlife. Goose droppings can be an issue on the greens at times but still a great course! This course is a long hitters dream.

harder than expected

This course was more challenging for our beginner talents than we thought. Great scenery (it's part of the park system), so that made up for the extra strokes.

Unique Course. Unfortunate Ending

Blacklick Woods is a hidden gem in Columbus. For a public course the hole variation is excellent. Every hole has a unique feel that challenges you at every turn. Whether it be blind tee shots, dog-legs both ways, various obstacles, ect. They keep the course in decent condition and it is a pleasure to play. The only negative I have is the staff. I teed off a little after 5 and was behind a 4some of 2 walkers and a cart. There was no ranger to manage slower groups. Especially when the group in front of us looked like they had never played golf before. Also, we paid for the twilight rate which allows us to get as many holes in as possible with remaining daylight. We made the turn at 8pm and the course was wind open. We played 3 more holes and could have easily played 2 more before it would have been appropriate to come in. A ranger shows up to tell us we need to come in even though the sun didn't set for 35 more minutes. I was extremely happy with the course and the round but the way the ranger treated us at the end left a sour taste in my mouth and will make me question whether I will spend money here again.

Great course. Great condition.

Played this course for years. Played it a week ago 7/13 and it was wet from all the rain but it was in great shape and never looked better. Hit it straight and you will enjoy it.
