Although the climate gives away the location, the Golf Club of Dublin is a more authentic interpretation of the traditional links of its Irish namesake than most other replicas you'll find. The flat terrain, which was formerly a cornfield, was transformed into an enjoyable linksland layout covered with tall, sweeping heather and hundreds of yards of hand-stacked stone walls. The gently rolling fairways are generous and the classic, square-shaped greens are enormous and fast. In keeping with a true links golf course, there are nearly 80 steep, sod-walled bunkers waiting treacherously by the fairways and greensides to swallow up errant shots. Depending on the sun, the shadows cast over the bunkers can play tricks on your eyes, making them appear deceptively deeper or shallower. Water hazards also come into play on a few holes at the Golf Club of Dublin.

We're glad you liked the course and we appreciate you sharing your feedback. We feel the pricing reflects the amount of hard work and time put into conditioning from our staff + the latest equipment in maintaining the course. We do offer competitively priced rounds at different times of the day, and our Fall Rates are starting very soon (going down!). We'll be open through the year, weather permitting, so we hope you'll give us a second shot in the future maybe on Fall or Twilight Rates. Thanks again for golfing with us - hope to have you back!

Loved the course layout with long par 4's from the tips. The sedulity of each hole having their own identity from having challenging length, hazard placement, and hole direction. First time playing here and shot a respectable 75 from the tips (7051 yds.). Great challenge for any golfer but more so for the golfer who can play golf shots (drawing and fading). Big greens force you to bring some short game and putting magic.<br/> The lady in the pro shop was the nicest person I have meet during my 60 rounds this year. Extremely helpful with some course advice, direction to the first tee, and timely service.<br/> Would play here again every day because the course is that enjoyable.

The course was beautiful on this cloudy fall day. Really reminded you of Ireland or Scotland with the weather and links style course. Other that the aeration on the back9 fairways, the course was in great shape. Played the tips, which was a challenge with the winds that day. Love this course.

Had a blast playing at Dublin City course. Weather was a little chilly, which helped keep down the crowds. Got to play by myself so I could hit a couple of balls. Course is in great condition and weeds are cut so losing a ball was minimal considering the long grass in the summer. Very nice course, big hitters should love this course.

We happened to get a tee time the week prior, and hoped the weather would work with us. We had an amazing day in the mid 70s, and the course was in pretty good shape. The tee boxes were moved pretty far forward, but still had a great day of golf.

Golf course played a little longer than normal with windy conditions (15-20 mph). The fairways and greens are in excellent condition. This course is one of the more challenging in the area in my opinion. I used every club in my bag as it presents many options for shot making. One of my favorites in Central Ohio.

I heard good things about this course from a friend. I was very pleased with the course. The layout is great, a risk reward course. You can lay up with a 3 wood and have a middle to low iron in on many of the par 4, or you can hit driver and have a wedge in. The greens rolled fantastic, I look forward to playing here again!!

I like the layout of the course. The greens were in terrible shape. I do not know if this guy was the starter or not he was on a card at the first Teebox he was very rude and unhelpful I have played this course several times and that seems like the MO out there. I have played most of the new era golf courses, and for some reason the people at this course are very unhelpful and rude. The young man that was cooking outside was a very nice guy. Overall the course is way overpriced.<br/> Thank you<br/> Tom ashcraft

As a golfer with a big slice links style is for me. But even with the wide fairways, the water on 17 out of 18 holes is hard to deal with. And the bunkers make you feel like you are playing at The Open but some are too small you can't stand in them. Another thing about The Golf Club of Dublin is that there is alot of space between greens to tee boxes. This is not a course for walkers, even though the distance of the actual course is 7,000 and some yards you will be walking at least 9,000 yards. With all my complaints this was a pretty good round for me and it was very fun.

As stated in title, at the hot deal price it is a good value. The standard price for this course is approximately $54. At that price, it is not such a good deal. The staff was exceptionally friendly and courteous and are top-notch all the way around. The golf course, however, is just slightly better than average condition, at best. If this course was in a different area, say Groveport or Reynoldsburg area, it would be half as much to play. I guess they charge that much because people will pay it in the Dublin area.
