California Golf Course
The California Golf Course sits on land that slopes gently and offers a nice view of the Ohio River; however, this course ain't just pretty to look at, but laid out to play in a manner that will test seasoned golfers and welcome novices to the friendly golf course where the trees are old growth.
California Golf Course provides 18 holes of par-71 golf over 6,227 yards. A round of golf kicks off on a par-4 hole that plays to 367 yards from the Blue tees. Because this is one of Cincinnati's longer municipal golf courses, power golfers will appreciate the chance to open up their games a bit more, with about a third of the holes measuring over 400 yards from the Blue tees, including a pair of par-5 holes, the second and ninth holes.
As the California Golf Course is a municipal golf course, expect low rates, and those who can swing a round of golf during the workweek can expect them to be even lower.

the greens were aerated recently. i believe that when they do this they should lower the rate by about 7 dollars. love playing there but if i knew they had aerated recently i probably would have passed on playing there today and gone somewhere else and maybe waited for a few more weeks. other than that i really enjoy the course
Competitive course-provides challenge
Think the first 6 too narrow. Was tough with group event that was playing slow and shooting into other holes. Otherwise course was fun and relaxing!
Double booked Golf Now
I booked a round using golf now, I showed up to the course early and was told I was not allowed to play as the tee time was doubled booked by Golf now. The man I spoke with was fairly rude and said the issue was not his problem and did not attempt to try and work me in. I was a single teeing off at 6:48AM and was the only player at the course.
Groundskeepee needs a course on etiquette
I was excited to play this course for the first time..... Arrived and was greeted by very friendly staff and the starter was very accommodating.... That's where the fun ended . I waited on the first tee box for nearly five minutes for the grounds crew to get out of the way .I understand they have a job to do. I then got to hole #2 and had to stop my swing ( literally in my backswing some lady on a mower cut in front of me less than 10 feet away) now I'm rattled and slightly upset...It gets worse another mower is dead center of the fairway driving as if no one is around .....Ughhhhhh.......Hole # here she comes again ! I've golfed for 25+ years and played well over 1000 rounds and I don't even have an experience that would come close.....Hole #4 I'm literally contemplating going to the clubhouse and calling it a day...... Thankfully by hole #5 I was ahead of the grounds crew and could finally start enjoying my round ...... Overall the course was very nice and had some spectacular views it's just a shame that I cannot get rid of the butter taste of the grounds crew having complete disregard for the PEOPLE WHO ARE PAYING TO BE THERE ..... Honestly I can't say I'll ever be back ..... Someone needs to give her ( I only saw one woman) a lesson in etiquette and explain that her job is contingent on people PAYING to play there .......Rant over
Greens, tee boxes, fairways and employees all great. Only complaint is someone needs to cut the rough. If you're not in the fairway or second cut, it's 5 inches tall. Fire up them mower's more often boys! The course is pretty long and challenging but a fun layout.
Played 18 in 4 hours over Memorial Day weekend, despite playing last 3 holes in 45 minutes
