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.

Never again

The worst staff I've ever had. Unfriendly, didn't care about customers or the money we spend to keep the course open and running. I'll never go back

Course great, Management not

I have no complaints as to the course. I enjoyed it very much. Conditions very good, layout great, has a special appeal for an older course. Only problem was with course management. First no rangers on course. Second management not following golf ettiquet. I booked an 11:40 tee time for 1 player. The threesome ahead of me booked the same time. No one at course suggested the two groups play together to make it a foursome. I had no problem with that however after the first nine the threesome ahead of me went into the clubhouse to purchase food items and beverages. As the tee was open when I made the turn I was prevented from going ahead to finish my back 9. It seemed like the young starter had no clue that the long standing rule at all courses that if you enter the clubhouse and a person or group behind does not and wants to continue on with the back nine the group stopping at the turn forfeits their place in line. The 10th hole was completely open when I was prevented from teeing off. This threesome of young inexperienced players often hit two and sometimes 3 extra shots on several holes on the front nine and there were no rangers on the course to address this. While I enjoyed my round it took way too long to complete play.

Liars

Booked 18 holes for hot deal $21.00, arrive to play. Guy says it’s getting Darker soon. May not get all holes in. We have 4hrs to sundown, course is just over 5,000 yards should take about 2 and half 3 hours. Pace of play was atrocious but I can get over that. We finished 9 holes it’s 6:12 and Asst. pro tells us we don’t have enough light and that’s why he charged us for 9 holes. I told him I was charged 18. He then shows me that yes I booked through golf now for $21.00 but he only charged me 9 which is $21.50. So I bought a hot deal then got charged more and told we could only play 9. He eventually caved and said we could play the front 9 again but it was to dark to play the back. Which is rediculous. Course is tiny it’s all the same lighting. Course is in 2.5 star out of 5 shape. It’s not even worth a hot deal for $10.

Fun course to play

Played 18 holes in 2 hour and 45 minutes by myself. Had to wait on two groups to play through in the first 4 holes, but was cruising after that. This was probably my 6th time playing this course in 2020. Not a bad track; you pay if you don't hit it straight, and the greens are tough. Highly recommend this course!

Nice course for a quick round...but

Nice course for a quick round...but be aware this is a Junior golf associated facility and there were many juniors out and about. Also quite a few beginner golfers were on the course. It is an executive course no par 5s but for the type of play it gets was in descent shape. I didn't like the shared use part of the course 12-16 where people walked their dogs and cars driving through the middle of the course.

Great value for a round, had plenty of fun!

This is an old public course that is maintained well- not fancy at all but nice. There are some very nicely laid out holes, and good views. It is very affordable. We had some slow play along the way, but it worked out fine.

Worst golf course ever!!!!!

This is easily the worst experience I ever had golfing. I have been golfing for over 20 years. At least 3 members of the staff were extremely rude to us and ruined the whole experience. The superintendent even refused to say hello to our group, which was really weird, since we said hello to him and he just sat there staring at us awkwardly. The man who we called the "enforcer" stole our beers, as well as other golfers in front and behind us (also a first). Also, they told us that we were going slow but we actually were asked to play through the group in front us right before being stopped by the "enforcer." Go literally anywhere else if you could.

Great day on the links!

This was our first time at Avon Fields. The elevation changes and views were really nice. We had a great time. The cost is unbelievably, incredibly cheap.
The round was great, people were friendly. The fairways were nice, not perfect, but a very nice public course and a great time.

Worst course in cincinnati

Tee times are inevitably overbooked when you play here. Staff literally drives around the course, through fairways, over players balls, to ride up to groups and check their carts for outside alcohol mid round. The kids that work there are nice, but the management and starters never fail to make playing here a miserable experience. Played there today, spent 132 dollars on tee times, atleast 40 at the cafe for beers and food, and I even bought 99 dollar shoes (which I now regret). 4 of our holes were ruined by staff driving around harassing players about outside alcohol. We bought ours there and were still harassed on multiple holes with staff checking our carts.

Half the number of tee box markers of any course, expensive for overall value, but it is the manager Ron and the starters that have caused me to never play here again

Great Course in Central Cincinnati

This course offers a great opportunity to practice your midrange game as nearly each hole is a par-4. The pace of play went fairly well as it seemed to be fairly popular on a Thursday afternoon while we played. Lots of holes that shift between fun short segments and holes that help practice your skills.

Poor course management

I booked an 18 hole pre paid hot deal for 3:00. Upon arriving to the course I was told I would “maybe” be able to get 9 in because they had leagues starting at 3:30. I asked for a rain check and the guy at the desk went to get his manager. The manager was extremely rude and not at all accommodating. I can see why this course has become what it has. That will be my last visit to Avon fields.
