About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 71
Length 6559 yards
Slope 130
Rating 71.2

Designed by Donald Ross in 1924, Denison Golf Club at Granville has a classic design that deftly utilizes the natural landscape of rolling hills covered with forests. The layout is fair and not overly challenging, providing an enjoyable round for players of all skill levels. The elevated, undulating greens and dramatic elevation changes are the course's trademarks. There are also strategically placed bunkers throughout that present further challenges. The golf course finishes with its signature hole, a par 4 that is easily the most dramatic of any on the layout. The hole is known for the 125-foot drop from the tee to the fairway, after which a second shot to a small, two-tiered green is required. In addition to the golf course, Denison offers extensive practice facilities including a driving range, short game area, and putting green.

Beautiful course

Played on the first day of fall and had a great time. Course layout is beautiful. It's also pretty forgiving if you slice the ball like I do. I'll be playing there again.

Hidden gem

This course has been around quite a while, but I never had the opportunity to play it until last week. Wow...what a great layout and the course was in pretty decent shape considering the conditions at other courses in the area. The pro shop & snack bar had great selsctions of merchandise, food & drinks and the staff made us feel welcome from the minute we walked in. So, go play this course....I'll certainly be back

Great Course

Awesome course! Well worth the price of admission. Also, the beverage cart was on point giving me drinks whenever I needed them. The golf house in well kept and the employees are always hard at work doing whatever they can to please customers. Overall, a great experience.

Looking forward to 2017

Played here for over 20 years, typically the first tee time on Saturdays. The course is generally in excellent condition, with the exception of the end of 2016 due to the fungus that killed the fairways. Looking forward to seeing how the course plays with bent grass fairways - will be an interesting change.

Bring your Putter

The course has had a fungus issue and the fairways are bad and being reseeded. the greens are typical Donald Ross, upside down bowl. The greens were not designed for the speed. Easy to three putt due to the speed and hard to see breaks. the staff did say they are closing October 18 and redoing the fairways, due to the fungus.

Good enough for jack

This is a hidden gem worth the 35 minute drive from Columbus. Excellent greens and a stunning back 9 in the Ohio Valley. Traditional course that could use a little tlc. If you love elevation and lightening fast greens then look no further

Awful Shape

Greens are OK but that's about it. The course is in awful shape and barely has any grass in the fairways, rough, and tee boxes. Will never go back.
