Too long grass

Grass too long not maintained, if balls land rough, extremely hard to find.
Even tee ground glass too long cant shot with irons.
So disappointed.

This is a new course!!!

The airport GC is not the course I played 35 years ago. In 2011 they completely renovated the course with the exception of 3 holes, I was told. All this to accomodate a change in airport ops. The course is more of a links course and the elevation changes have somewhat been removed... it is still a nice course but different. We came off 12 and didn’t know to change direction on the cart path. We were told signage was in repair. Thus playing 15 rather than 13, this was aggravating to say the least.... with the promo code for golfnow, I cannot complain about the green fee...... may be back. This course gets quite a bit of play, but the pace was good....

No information for the closure of golf course

I'm supprised to hear that the closed golf course after arriving there. Even though the schedule starts at 12 o'clock, there are no any callings or information from anywhere. So, I spent the time and disturb my schedule on this day.
I cannot understand why there are no information before the scheduled time.

Close and worth the price

I come here often. Closest public course in the middle of Columbus. The value is best during the weekdays but can be overpriced during the weekends. The course is decently kept with an exception of a few holes that could use work on the fairways or rough.

Enjoyable golf course, but unfortunately playing two times of 9 hole

The overall condition of course was good and well maintained. It was regrettable to play two times of nine holes due to close of back side holes.

Horrible 1st experience

I booked a 5:15 pm tee time only to show up and was told we’d go off on the 10th hole due to scheduled schools playing. I was glad to oblige but due to the course only being 18 holes and amount of groups playing we were only able to play 4 holes. If I was told that there were school tournaments being played we’d have booked another course. It was a small dollar amount to play but I’d have chosen a different course if I knew I’d play 4 holes but pay for 18. Incredibly disappointing

Great course for an affordable price

Played here for the first time today and it was amazing. The airplanes literally fly right over you as they come in for landing! The course layout is very forgiving yet still fun for the experienced golfers that play the black tees ( I believe there were five sets of tees). The pace was average for a Saturday, at about 4 hours 10 minutes. I will be back in the future.

Short and Forgiving

Good course to play if you have had a few weeks where you haven't been able to get out. Short course overall but for the price the course condition is what you'd expect.

Course back log

Things were going great on the front 9 did have a foursome of ladies playing behind us who kept nipping at my heels. Once we hit the turn there were 3 groups in front of us a single a double and a 3sum played the front in 110minutes the back 9 took 140minutes. Somebody overstayed their turn tome and backed everyone up. Nobody let anyone play ahead of them and the Rangers were just hanging out not worried about their job on the course. Also my 2sum gave a 2 shot lead before hitting whole the group of ladies didn't and kept at our heels the whole back and front 9s
