Raymond Memorial Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, is a rare find, which includes twin par-3 holes. Each par-3 hole is actually two parallel holes, complete with tees, fairways and greens. The idea behind this feature was to allow play to move at a more reasonable pace by allowing the faster players to advance ahead of the slower foursomes.

From the blue tees, this course plays to 6,864 yards, with a rating of 72.8 and a slope of 121. The large and contoured greens are raised and sloped from back to front. Sand bunkers protect the front side of all 18 holes.

It was the first Beautiful day in quite a while, so everyone was out. Paired up with high school girls who wanted to practice Slowly, so moved up to play with 2 friendly single men. Even so, we were on top of a pile up of golfers. OK, except that a staff member came and told US to move faster. ?????

Raymond often moves too slow. Course has open layout and big greens. A lot of character to the course. Greens tend to be pretty slow.

Has the best halfway house in central Ohio with awesome Schmidt’s sausages and German food.

This is a vey enjoyable course, run by the city of Columbus Parks . Course built by RT Jones, Sr. All greens are elevated, so you must fly the ball to the green. Greens were very slow, and fairways not tightly mown.

Pace of play was a joke, nearly 5 hours on a Saturday late afternoon. All holes are close to each other, a round here would take less than 4 hours. A marshall was on the course, to no avail. Our foresome waited every shot on a TWOSOME of new golfers. A whole hole gap was in front of them.

This is a good 4 star course, play it if you have the time.
