Type Private
Oakhurst Country Club was designed by Ohio native Jack Kidwell, who took great care to preserve the beautiful natural terrain while still providing a premier championship course. Kidwell deftly utilized the rolling landscape covered with mature trees to create one of central Ohio's most challenging private golf courses. The layout features narrow fairways and small, sloped greens that demand both accuracy and careful strategy. There is also an abundance of water throughout the course that adds to both its challenging nature and scenic quality. The design has an interesting variety of holes with several holes that long hitters will enjoy and others that will test your short game skills. Although it offers a formidable test, Oakhurst Country Club is still approachable to all skill levels thanks to four sets of tees.

First Time Playing

Don't play if you aren't a member.

First off, the course condition and layout was fantastic. well maintained and free range balls are a definite plus. The problems start when a foursome of seniors (who happened to be members) get behind us and are golfing at a ridiculously fast pace, most likely playing best ball. We offered to let them play through but they weren't interested in doing that.

So here we are 1 hour in to our golf match getting told we need to speed up by some highschool kid. So we respectfully picked up our already quick (in my opinion) pace. We played a rushed game for the rest of the front nine and then grabbed some Gatorade and water before starting hole #10

Fast forward to the 15th fairway. There has been NOBODY behind us up to this point. My entire groups drives land within 10 feet of one another so we are all relatively close to each other when another highschool kid rolls up and says something to the tune of "my boss said to skip hole 16 and play 17&18 because we have an outing today." I respectfully told him that I paid for 18 holes not 17 and that I most definitely WOULD NOT skip any holes.

The bottom line is that we got treated like garbage at this course for reasons unknown. We got constantly told to speed up even when it seemed we were flying through the course. It's unfortunate that as nice as this course is, I will never return.

Private club setting

Interesting layout set in mature tress and rolling hills, not a house in sight. Fast greens with significant elevation change. Balls provided on range. Excellent value.

Sloppy day at Oaky

The course took 3 - 4 inches of rain the night before our 8:40 tee time. Only the front nine was open and cart path only (of course). The course challenging, the greens have great pace and contours. The second hole is a beast! Anywhere but left.

GREAT SHAPE

WOW - is all I can say --- a few fairway bunkers were crusty and need raked - some weeds - but otherwise if you keep it in the short stuff excellent conditions !!! Green speeds were perfect - Keep it below the hole pretty much everywhere for best rounds - rough was thick and juicy - a true penalty if you miss a fairway or green --

I will definitely be back and as often as I can -

Gone Down Hill

This course has a nice layout but course conditions of fairways and tee boxes are poor. Speed of play was the worst I had seen all year at any course. Left with 4 holes remaining as it had already been 5 hours. Two groups on the tee box was the norm. Horrible experience and a waste of money.

First Time Playing

Good condition for this time of year.

Seems many courses have trouble this time of year with dry weather and diseases hurting fairways and greens, but this course was in very good shape with the exception of a few very bad tee boxes. The greens were medium speed and were in decent shape. I would definitely play here again.

Nice Round of Golf

Oakhurst is an old style golf course. A nice piece of land with natural features that allowed construction without moving a lot of dirt. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. No housing on the course, except for the last two holes, and it's not obtrusive. Very small greens put a premium on approach shot accuracy. Needs some TLC on some of the tee boxes and there is some ground under repair, but it's not enough to be bothersome. I would go back. I took a guest from out of town, and he loved it, thought the land was beautiful.
