Rating 73.4
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.

Excellent Course

On a lark, decided to drive 90 minutes on my off day to play a course near Cincinnati. Had played area courses in the past, but thought I would give this one a try. I am glad I did. Very challenging but reasonably so. Forces one to think through the round and is not for a grip and rip only golfer. Only minor issue was the in cart GPS could do better at giving distances to hazards like water and sand traps. Other than that, everything was almost perfect. Look goreard to playong it again.

A lot of ground under repair

It was aeration day today and pace of play was slower than normal. Quite a few holes had bad areas and ground under repair. Really like the course and the layout, it was probably in better condition earlier in the season. Had an issue with the group behind us hitting into us on a couple holes, but we couldn't go anywhere as we were waiting for the group in front of us. Will have to go back again next year.

Nice course

I always like playing at aston oaks. Very hilly and picturesque golf course. My friend played very slow today so I am glad I was at one of my favorite courses. The course was in better shape than my last round there. Just challenging enough from the gold tees that I had to work to score well.

Beat up

I have played this course several times and like it.However this time around I have to say the course is to put it bluntly beat up.The fairways have lots of burnt patches and the greens are ball marked to the point of putts bouncing.Was surprised by this as it’s usually in good condition.

Nice Course with potential

I have read quite a bit about the course and decided to make the drive to check it out. Challenging lay out with nice club house and spectacular views of the river on some of the holes. They are struggling to keep the grass on several of the fairways which is unfortunate. The course has lots of potential if they can get control of the fairway condition.

I was very impressed with the course Unfortunately it was cart path only due to all of the rain we had for 2 days prior to our round. I will definitely play this course again.

Fairways have seen better days

Staff was great. Layout great. Greens fast. Lots of sand. A few forced carries. Plenty of doglegs. All in all a fun course. The fairways have taken a beating from the rain and heat. Would like to play again in the fall. Great deal on Golfnow. Worth the play.

Swamp land

Very confused once I went off the first tee. It hadn't rained in two weeks, yet I watched my first ball plug in the fairway. I understand the fairways were in rough shape, but walking into puddles as I reach the fairway seemed a bit much. Every fairway was like this, an absolute swamp. Greens were in OK shape, and looked like they needed some attention as well. I have been here several times and enjoy the staff, layout, and typically the conditions. Not during this round. It was a grind.

Slow play

course forced into playing with another 2-some because of how busy the course was. we got stuck behind some very slow groups that wouldn't let us play. the course was in pretty good shape, greens were nice but some fairways were burnt. recommend to play during the week to avoid slowness.

Great golfing experience.

I play a lot different courses, This is one of my favorites courses now.. Beautifu andl scenic, seems to be back in the middle of no where. You can't just bang a driver on every hole.

Nice and friendly staff. Very reasonable replay rate. Wasn't busy at all on a Saturday morning.

I will playing this course every time I visit my buddy who lives in the Cincinnati area.

Amazing Golf Course

A Beautiful golf course, the layout was amazing, the fairways were in great condition and that rough...its on the name, some of the hardest roughs to hit out of. GPS on the golf carts were a bonus, took the guessing out of the equation which helps speed up the game. If you book for two, you will be paired as a foursome.

Overall, you won't be disappointed. In already planning my next round with a group of friends...even Jim and Jake are welcomed( the two gentlemen that we were paired with).
