Avon Fields Golf Course
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.

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.
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.
Awesome urban course
Awesome course right in the city. Challenging but fair. Layout is great.
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.
Looking forward in returning
Love the layout and the staff was great. Course was nice and challenging .
this coarse was atough coarse greens were very good
A nice coarse but no food or coffee and didn't realize it was a par 63 with no par fives
Good value and convenient
Conveniently close to downtown Cincinnati. Nice pace of play. Was able to play 18 holes in 3.5 hours. Course was in good shape, and greens were pretty nice. Pretty course with some nice views. Good value for the price.
Don't judge this book by its cover.
Good "old school" layout. It's a short course, by today's standards, and you CANNOT miss the green. The penalty is severe. Greens were somewhat hard and slow-weird combination. I would play it again, now that I know more about the layout and positions to be in.
I enjoyed the course overall. It wouldn't be a choice of home course
I found a great deal to play 18 holes with a cart, so I decided to give it a shot. I figured it would be packed on Memorial Day, but there were hardly any groups out. My partner and I played 18 holes in under 3.5 hours (We were the only group on the back 9 when we made the turn.) The fairways are solid, but the rough isn't well maintained; this is to be expected on a course that sees as many groups as Avon. For the money, I couldn't beat it. Avon isn't the nicest course in the world, but it definitely provides great value.
Love the greens
Love the course!!! Greens were excellent. Pace of play is usually fast. Their shortpar 4's seem easy, but they can be difficult if tee ball misses target. Ron Dumas runs a fine facility!!!
Nice course for beginners who wants a good score.
The golf pro was very friendly and helpful. Very convenient location for easy access. One of the better greens I've played on this year, and the fairways were fairly well kept. The down side, I realized, because of location, the course does not have any par 5s. Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable course to play on.
