About

Type Municipal
Par 66
Length 4963 yards
Slope 103
Rating 63.3

Avon Fields Golf Course is one of the older golf courses in Cincinnati, where it sits on picturesque land that rolls along fairways lined with trees - and it's easily accessible to downtown. The golf course provides tests and good times for golfers at all levels, with elevated and diminutive greens for those who like to play short golf, as well as those who need more practice at it (for those who need more practice in general, the Jimmy Woods Learning Center is onsite).

Avon Fields Golf Course provides 18 holes of par-67 golf over 5,081 yards. Tee off on a par 4 that plays to 369 yards. The course is short compared with megacourses being built elsewhere nowadays: About a third of the holes come in at under 200 yards, even from the Blue tees, while only the fourth hole, the lone par-5 hole, stretches to over 400 yards from the Blue tees.

As the Avon Fields Golf Course is a municipal golf course, expect affordable green fees, and those who can swing a round of golf during the workweek can expect them to be even lower.

Poor Staff. Brutal conditions

Brutal course conditions. Tee box’s are virtually nonexistent. The fairways were in terrible condition. A little soft on top than hard as a rock.... never a true iron shot. Staff was very rude.

Bad news

I scheduled a tee time at this course for Sunday morning at 7 a.m. my partner was rushed to the hospital with a heart attack I called the course to let them know we couldn't make the tee time they charged me for it anyway. After such a devastating loss for them to do that was just so wrong GolfNow and Avon Fields both suck

Poorly managed course

Greens covered in goose crap. Halfway through my early morning game grounds people finally show up and do a poor job and start turning on sprinklers and blowing off goose crap while people are playing mid fairways. Shortest course I have ever played. Not worth the $15 spent. Won’t be back.

Bad Shape

Been playing here for over 20 years in a league. Played this past week and the condition was like we just walked off the course last fall.

Very sad to see such a grand old course deteriorate of the last few years.

Frost delay

Had a tee time for 9:16 showed up and found out there was a frost delay and they would be backed up until 12:30. So I will not be going back to this place.

Surprising Course!

This course is in an older part of town but that shouldn’t stop you. The course is in great shape if you can play fairways. Greens are a litttle slower with this type of grass. Layout is a bit chaotic and could use some more signs. Staff was super friendly and readily assistive.

Look forward to my next time!

Nice course, pace of play issues.

I played there by myself, and within two holes I was stuck behind a couple two-somes who were playing extremely slow. I had to play the back nine twice in a row due to wet conditions on the front, and was glad when I came back to 10 because there was nothing in front of me. However, when I finished hole 11, and was heading to 12, two guys in a cart cut in front of me coming off of hole 16 and went back to 12 to play again! That’s my only complaint....there was no oversite of who was playing where, and keeping the pace of play. The course itself was nice, very challenging with the ups and downs, and great for the price. I will most likely play again and hope they fix the pace of play issue.

Fall Fun

I just love this course! Mainly because it is one of the oldest courses in our city, but every time I play there the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The course is well maintained and challenging enough for me.
