Heatherwoode Golf Club in Springboro boasts some of the most well manicured greens and fairways in southern Ohio. This challenging course, which is the former host of the Nike Tour's Miami Valley Open, is one of Ohio's top 20 golf courses. Denis Griffiths designed the layout. He made the most of the lush, gently rolling landscape and its natural hazards. There is water on over half of the holes in the form of vast lakes and meandering streams. There are also strategically positioned trees looming beside the fairways and greens. The three sets of tees are are diverse enough to accommodate a wide range of skill levels. It is a popular place for tournaments and outings. Heatherwoode G.C. is conveniently located just a short drive from Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

We've played this course once a year for a number of years and it was in the best shape we've ever seen. All facets of course in great shape and they've added amenities to practice range (chairs, umbrellas, music) to make it a first class warm-up. If you're looking to play around the Dayton area play it! The cigar room is a nice touch too!

Had some random rain showers during the round but the course was beautiful and challenging. Got a hot deal through golf now which made the price a great deal compared to the other tee times. The staff was friendly and the ranger kept us updated on pace of play.

Played for cheap through golf now, but this beauty of a course was more worth the $60 to play than most courses I've played locally. I would pay the higher price in a heart beat. The staff was friendly. The course was older but in beautiful shape. Plenty of challenges. Didn't play my best round on the difficult back 9, but the amount of fun I had hear will more than definitely bring me back for more. Thanks Heatherwoode!

First nine was slow as we were behind a threesome that was brutally slow. I called the clubhouse on #17 (we started on #10) to make them aware of the situation and a ranger came out immediately to correct the situation. The ranger also let us skip #1 to get around the slow players and we completed #1 at the end of the round. Nice save by the rangers - w/o their help it would have been a 5 hour round! The staff certainly knows how to run a golf course!

Heatherwood was in great shape for this time of year. It will be another month (April) before they get into full action with a starter and snack shop. In the mean time, this is a great course with fast greens and dog-legs that will require you to hit the ball with a fade or draw on some tee shots. There are plenty of water hazards, traps and trees that will challenge your skills. Watch out for the stream on hole #5. You must decide whether to lay up short or go for the gusto by hitting a 230+ yard tee shot.

A great course, in excellent shape. Very interesting layout, gives you something new with each hole. I played with a very cheap online tee time. Also, I notice a lot of complaints about pace, but I played on a 43 degree day, so there were only 3 people on the whole course! Anyway, I heartily recommend this course, and I will play again next time I'm in the area.

I blame the weatherman. Said it would be dry and cloudy. Had to stay on cart path because was very wet and there was light rain. This made it less fun, but it's a great course and I always like playing it.
