I played here a couple years ago and wasn’t too impressed. The newly renovated clubhouse is unreal for a public course. The course is difficult and challenges you to keep the driver in the bag. Keep it in the fairway and you will shoot a great score. Challenge the course and be aggressive and it will expose you. Two major problems with this course, the scorecard and tee distances are way off. Bring a rangefinder or GPS!!!! This is a must until they fix this. The second major problem is the tee boxes are in desperate need to be renovated, flattened and where possible, moved back. The greens are very slow, maybe a 7 or 8. Hole 16 has faster green speed. Lastly, the pace of play is awful. I feel this course can easily become one of the best public courses in NKY if they address these issues.

"3.25 hour Front 9, No help from Management"

We played a 3.25 hour front 9. We were told by the pro shop we could not get a 9 hole raincheck because be booked with GolfNow. The staff did not enforce rate of play and allowed an amateur 4 group scramble to go off the first 2 holes at 1 p.m. on the first nice Saturday of the year. These groups were painfully slow and after repeated calls to the clubhouse, course management did nothing to enforce the rate of play. Each player was hitting multiple shots and searching for balls. We left after the front 9 and will never be back. Overpriced too, especially compared other comparable courses in the area.

I had not played Devou since 2005, and I remembered it being unfair (hard bounces & lost balls). There is still opportunity to lose balls, but no longer due to hard terrain and sparse rough. The entire experience was fantastic !! Fairways, greens, & rough were all green, thick, & mown nicely ! The cart paths are new and smooth, but this IS a course to be extremely careful with the cart...as there are some steep slopes in the rough. Course is very difficult if you play many shots from the rough. I'll definitely bring folks back to Devou, this fall and in years to come !!

I've been playing this course for years. The hills are challenging, but the distance is short. The toughest part is getting a level lye in the fairway. The course is well kept and the new clubhouse is beautiful. I'd say this is a good course for the money!

I have played this course for years and have never seen it in better shape from tee to green. The new clubhouse is very nice. The only issue we had was the slow group ahead of us and the lack of marshals to prevent slow play.

The new club house is very nice, the course looks nice but the fairways are very narrow and thick woods everywhere. For a beginner like myself who doesn't hit the fairway from every tee it was a frustrating course.
