About

Holes 18
Type Private
Par 72
Length 6764 yards
Slope 138
Rating 73.8

Ivy Hills Country Club shows what can happen to a gravel quarry when Steven Smyers puts pencil to paper, transforming it into a U.S.-style links course. There are risks, there are rewards, there are tests, and there is beauty.

The par-71 course at Ivy Hills Country Club measures 6,764 yards from the Championship tees. Three more tee sets and abundant landing space permit golfers of all levels to have a good, if testing, time. Elevation changes frequently over the length of the course, and there are several ways to hit (or miss) the greens; bunkers and that westerly wind when it gets gusty provide other challenges.

The Ivy Hills Country Club is private.

Great course layout with impeccable conditions. Has all new fleet of golf carts and extremely friendly staff. You can tell that the ownership group really values the membership base as they are always looking for ways to reinvest and better the club, course, practice facilities, etc.

Best kept secret around!

This place was amazing! The course is beautiful and the first 3 holes as you drive in are inspiring! You wont play anything like this not just around Cincy but all over the country. Enoy it for being unique an challenging. The rolling fairways are awesome and so is the staff and clubhouse. The starting hole is intimidating but great and the two par 3's on the front are short and fun!

Difficult but fun

The greens are very tricky but interesting. The first tee is a bit intimidating, but very cool. Elevation changes are great.
