course review

thought it was good. i think all golf courses should reduce the rate by 5 dollars when the course has been aerated. that is the only thing. I love the course but today it ate alot of my golf balls up. Darn trees. Will play it again because I think it is challenging and i love a challenge.

Good mix of tight, challenging holes

Great course set in the hills overlooking Cincinnati. Some very tight fairways will challenge about any golfer. Great layout overall.
Pace was slow on a Saturday, as expected. This gave us a reason to check out the newly updated clubhouse.

Devou Park

Course was very hilly and pace of play was very slow. Many holes close together with blind tee shots so we nearly got hit by errant shots a couple times.

Very solid course for the money

The group I played with and I walked this course. I would never play this course again if I had to walk because of how hilly it was. But when carts become available again I would definitely play again. While it’s not a very long course that made up for in challenging fairways and significant elevation changes.

Great golf course

Great for a public course. It makes you think of your shots since it isn't long. Greens can be hard and fast, but prove to be a nice challenge.

Fun and Challenging

Course has a very fun layout. Front nine was more open than the back. Back 9 there are very few driver holes. If you keep the ball in play you can score well. Greens were in great shape but the course was very wet after rains early in the week. A slot of sloppy spots even a few days after the rain.

Course is great. Members not so much.

This golf course is awesome. Well maintained with good views and some challenging holes. Staff were friendly and clubhouse was beautiful. Only issue we had was with the members behind us. They were rude and hit into us at least 3 times, nearly hitting myself and my partner in the head with a drive on a fairway where they could clearly see us.
