Denison Golf Club at Granville
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.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Ohio
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.
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
Got to play here on Sunday. Really fun course and a good challenge. Definitely won't be my last time there. Nice elevation and challenging greens made it a lot of fun.
Staff very friendly got off 1/2 hour early .
Course in great shape , greens too always a challenge ! Will come back soon.
Pace of play was good, layout was excellent as was the condition of the course.
The course was in great shape
The greens were extremely fast but rolled well. The fairways were nice.

Denison Golf Club
Denison golf club is a great course. The new Fairways they put in in 2017 are growing in very nicely. Highly recommend this course one of the best in central Ohio.
granduer at Granville
best overall golf course that you will ever have the chance to play, greens always super, must be below the hole to score, live more than hundreds of miles away but have played this course dozens and dozens of times and never been disappointed, will always try to play until the good lord says different, do play this course you will enjoy
Took my golfing buddy to your place it was his 1st time I had been there a few times before. We were both just blown away on how beautiful this course is!! Lay out is very fair but of you miss in the wrong spots it will make for a long long day!! We will both be back Tuesday!! Can't wait!!
Best condition public course in central Ohio
The new ownership has this place in the best shape ever and I've been playing here for over 30 years.
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.
Thank you for the 4-Star review! Yes we are closing to improve the course and your golfing experience. Stay tuned for when we open up!

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
Thank you for the 4-Star review! We appreciate you describing the course as a "hidden gem." Come play again soon!
Denison Golf Management
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.
We are sorry to see this review come in, and to learn you did not have as great of an experience as expected this time around. Transitioning into the new season please understand we are doing our best. We hope you give us another shot soon, so that we may exceed your expectations.
