Good pace

Course was in good shape with nice greens and tee boxes. Pace of play was excellent for a Sunday. Fox Den is always in good condition and very playable for most golfers. It’s a fun course to play and rewards proper club selection

Wet weather
Walked

The fact that it rained and the course was flooded, it's no one fault. However, they should have sounded the horn when it began thundering. A staff member was not accommodating for elders. charged $12 for a cart because, being an elder, I wanted to keep distances by riding alone. Last week I played Gleneagle's and they allowed me to ride alone at no extra cost even though they had a partition, Fox Den's carts did not. It's not worth it to catch Covid. I shan't ever return to Fox Den

The course was in perfect shape. The greens rolled very well, not super fast. We played in just under 3.5 hours. The staff was great.

Nice course

Fox Den is an enjoyable course. It has a nice layout, conditions are good considering the lack of rain this month, and the greens run at a nice speed and true. Not a top tier course, but a nice course worth the drive

Have played Fox D many times. Nice layout and requires you to able to work the ball left/right. Not all bomb it. Have to think about shots and best angles to approach greens.

Great course, very unfriendly staff

The course is always in tip top shape but the staff here is so rude and arrogant. Also tee times are booked close together so you’re always waiting to tee off.

Different review

Have seen a bunch of people complain about the price for this course so I waited for a hot deal to pop up for 18. Thought the course was in pretty good shape and gave a good challenge. Greens were great but putting was pretty easy. I definitely recommend giving the course a go... especially when you have a $10 off coupon from golf now and get to play 18 for $6

Over scheduling problem

it was very unpleasant playing this course. Booked a tee time several days in advance and showed up early to the first tee and 20 minutes past that our time, there were still 3 groups waiting to tee off, some of which were walk-ons. The starter was not around and eventually showed up and moved us to the back 9. During the middle of play the started showed up to yell at us to move faster when there eere clearly people still in our fairway and backed up several holes i front of us. We had already started late and wedged between two groups. The price was not the best, there a similar courses within a few miles that are cheaper. After talking to a few nore people Ibwas informed they had similar issues with scheduling. The staff was of no help. I will not be playing there again and would not recommend it to anyone else.

No Rain Checks

Had always thought Fox den represented a good value for the money that was the case at least until this year when Greens fees are sky high, now at $39 after 2 on weekends and holidays. There are certainly better courses out there for that kind of money. Condition were uneven, rough is super long and nobody fixes ball marks here. Regardless, pace of play was a factor as it took our 3some 2:45 to play nine. In front of us was what appeared to be 2 foursomes playing together and slowly. Behind us two high school or college kids asking us to play through, driving around in their cart during our t shots and hitting up on us. At one point words were exchanged. They skipped us and when we made the turn the starter had put them in front of us. Now we had a big back up at 10, 11, etc. Not wanting to spend 6 hours playing we bailed and asked for a rain check to which we were angrily directed to “read the sign, NO RAIN CHECKS”. That’s not how you treat loyal customers playing by the rules. Other patrons who heard our exchange with the attendant were sympathetic. We will be playing elsewhere.

Too costly !

I have to agree with a review I read about the price being too much . Weekend golf at 49 dollars for a municipal course is too much . I think really that is too much for any course and contribute the closing of many courses because golf is becoming too expensive for people to stay involved in the sport . Fortunately I have Tee Pass book with discounts that is the only reason I can play as often as I do .

Always Solid

Not the hardest course, is a varying layout though with a lot of good holes. Is a reliable experience, and conditions were good for just opening and while still mostly cold in Ohio.
