Robert Trent Jones gem

One of my favorite courses in Columbus. A few odd holes but for the most part an interesting fun layout with lots of personality. Some of the bunkers have been sanded this year and others are basically mud and dirt. I’m sure they can only do some many each year since it’s a city course on a strict budget.

Greens Had just been aerated so putting was worthless, but it’s that time of year. It also was still wet from the 4 inches of rain we got a number of days prior and it was cart path only without any notice. There was no notice of the aeration either. Irritating and unprofessional to not give notice.

I have bad knees and a bad hip and I would NEVER book a round knowing a course was cart path only. Probably would have been just as easy to try and walk.

I like the course very much but I will say you should always call before booking if there has been any recent rain. It holds water like no course I’ve ever seen and it is cart path only A LOT.

Starter

Like all courses, they try to save money by not having a starter. Then you have twosomes and singles holding up the play when they should have been paired together. I have seen this a lot lately and with golf courses having such a tough time, this is the one place that they should not cut. Offer free golf to a retired person to be the starter is what most courses do.

Champions

I got to play Champions Golf Course Sunday and was very impressed. The course layout is cool and looked great. The greens were aerrated recently, so they were still bumpy, but that was the only thing a bit off. I'll go back again for sure.

If you are going to bother to post an extremly negative review could you please be bothered to provide details on why you apparently had a terrible experience. I play the course regularly and I find it to be an excellent traditional style golf course. Robert Trent Jones Knew what he was doing.

It's an average course. Definitely not worth $50 a round.

Convenient Challenge

We've played this course a few times, it's always a fun challenge. The day we played there was some confusion as we were able to book a tee time right before a shotgun outing was teeing off. We were fine with it, but the staff seemed annoyed we were signed up to play. We called for our tee time that morning, so it should have been on them to correct and adjust. As a result we felt a little rushed on the first few holes but settled down once we offered the two-some to play through.
