Little Turtle Country Club is an 18-hole championship course designed by Pete Dye and Roy Dye that is less than 15 minutes from downtown Columbus. The course runs alongside Black Walnut Creek across a scenic, mature landscape. Trees come into play throughout the golf course and there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout. The creek also makes an appearance on a few holes. The course was designed for tournament play, offering a versatile layout that is welcoming to juniors but equally ideal for interclub matches. It is a layout that will appeal to players ranging from beginners to experienced professionals. Little Turtle Country Club also offers an expansive driving range that was also designed by Pete Dye and Roy Dye as well as a practice bunker and chipping area.

Best value in central Ohio for a private club

I joined this course several years ago and have played it since the late 70's. It continues to be one of the best kept secrets as well as best values in central Ohio. Pete Dyes later courses share many of the characteristics of this course, which was one of his very first few - undulating greens, risk reward holes that need to be thought out during your round. It is kept in great shape with FAST greens. Just wish the sand traps had deeper sand.
