Very Enjoyable

The nicest greens I have played on in years. Roll is extremely true and speed was quick but fair. Really well maintained golf course. My first time there. Very nice people in the clubhouse and on the course. Very enjoyable round. Nice drive out and back. I came from East side of Cincinnati - took me about 35 minutes.

Great variety

Really good layout with a variety of holes. Need to use all your clubs not just driver and short irons. Greens are true and firm. Rough is lush and full but playable. Local knowledge helpful with several partially blind shots. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Pristine Conditions

I haven't played a course in the Tri-State area that isn't has well maintained as this course. Greens were consistently ball-mark free, smooth and quick. Well worth the trip and the money.

Excellent Course

The course was in excellent shape, very few if any ball marks. On the par 3's hard to find a broken tee. Local knowledge of the holes is a must.

Hidden Gem

Apparently this used to be Pendleton County Country Club. It is now NKU's home course. Was not expecting much and man was I pleasantly surprised. Great layout and in excellent condition. Greens were really good. Hidden gem. Can't wait to play again!
