Aston Oaks Golf Club is perched atop rolling hills that overlook the Ohio River Valley. The Jack Nicklaus Design Group created the course, which sits on the former land of President William Henry Harrison. Although his presidency was short lived, traces of his legacy in Ohio can be seen throughout the golf course. Each hole was carefully carved from stands of mature white oak, hickory, and other native hardwoods. The course is tight and demanding with fast greens and plenty of elevation changes. The abundance of trees really characterizes the course. Between the 10th tee and the 11th green, there is a giant Buckeye tree that is the largest in the state. With all of the trees lining the fairways there was hardly a need to add bunkers, but there are some incorporated along the greensides that help to define some holes.

Overall a great course, had some condition issues mostly just due to time of year I'm guessing.

The course was in excellent shape. The pace was a touch slow. The cart paths need a lot of work.

Great Course for the Value

Really enjoyed playing Aston Oaks. The course is very well kept and the staff members (inside and out) are very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely return and play this course again soon. Best Value for a course of this caliber.

Worth the price

A few of the tee boxes were in rough shape, but overall the course was in great condition, and the greens rolled nice.

Disappointed in the condition of the course this time around. Tee boxes were covered in weeds and were probably over an inch in cut length in most parts.

Has Potential

The course layout is beautiful! The course has so much potential! The greens are so inconsistent and very bumpy. Maybe because it's April the conditions are like this. I would be willing to play it again. The black tees give a great challenge for distance and shot shaping. Loved the layout, but could for sure use some TLC

Challenging course

Don’t think about walking this course. Greens in great condition, well laid out. Generally you need to play from the fairway or it becomes a problem. Overall great course.

Not sure what’s going on

Course conditions were the worst I’ve seen at this course, weeds on the tee box, grass clippings in the fairway, not what I expected at this course

Very nice course for experienced golfers

I am new to golf. I would really like to come back to this course, but not until I work on my game a bit. Each hole felt very long, so I hope you have some distance on your swing. Beautiful course, well maintained. Made me feel like I was on vacation.
