Mentel Memorial Golf Course is one of seven municipal courses in the Columbus area. It underwent a major renovation in 2001 that gave it a new name, updated layout, and a new clubhouse. Although it is sometimes overshadowed by two of the city's more popular municipal courses, Champions and Raymond Memorial, it stands out for its meticulous maintenance. The fairways are well manicured and the rough is well defined. The gently undulating, easy-to-read greens also putt fast and true. There are three lakes that come into play on six holes and more than 40 strategically placed bunkers. Trees are present throughout the golf course, but they sometimes work in your favor by helping to block the constant winds. The sixth is one of the most notable holes at Mentel Memorial, demanding a lengthy drive over a hill.

Another Nice City Course

The city of Columbus does a great job keeping their courses looking good. Wonderful fast greens at Mentel it might be my favorite city course however it was so crowded I didn’t finish my round today and it seems they do not space out the tee times far enough

Young to old

I use to come to this course with my father and grandfather to watch them play and ride in the cart. This was all before the trailer brunt down and the rebuild. Coming back and actually playing in my 30s is fun and really enjoyed my time. The course is very good and I enjoyed to see it’s still a well maintained course. I would gladly come back again.
