I am from the Cincinnati area, and i was planning on going on a road trip this weekend to play a couple courses. Any suggestions on what courses anybody would recommend. Other then Idlewild, Mt. Airy, sycamore trails, and belmont? Im not sure whether i want to go north, south, east or west, so any suggestions would be great!!! And id like to play two courses in the area, so any ideas?

You could play the Columbus courses: Hambrick, Griggs, Lobdell, Blendon (in that order).

You could go out east and play Chillicothe's Pike Lake and/or Great Seal.

You could hit the trio of Gulley, Turtlecreek, and Monroe without driving very far (go up I-71 and back I-75).

Or head South. I hear Jenny Wiley is worth the trip, but I don't know what else is down there.

Great Seal and Pike Lake are about 40 minutes apart and both are top notch courses. I would say it is about an hour and twenty minutes to great seal.

If you decide to play Great Seal make sure you take grippy shoes and your A game. It will test every shot in your bag :)

If you have not played the Dayton courses yet you should consider them too. You will be closer to home and thus, have more daylight to play.

Going South.

There's a B tier in Louisville Saturday. Iroquois Park will be very busy.

(These are more than 2 hours away.) The two courses I like best in those parts are Freeman Lake in E'town (Elizabethtown) and Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro. Both play around or over lakes. One I would like to play is Ohio County Park in Hartford.

And for those cave dwellers out there. A new course opened in Brownsville. The course should be less than 10 miles from Mammoth Cave.

I'll be camping @ Pike Lake this weekend. Maybe, I'll see you on the course.

The Cumberland course in Jamestown is extremely nice. It used to be a 9 hole ball golf course. Being a resort community, the course is well maintained.

Gents,
I am from Chillicothe and in the near future I will be working a few weekends at the new Honda plant in Greensburg, Indiana. I was curious if any of you knew of any courses in Indiana that are not too far from there (halfway between Indy and Cincy). I know there are courses in Indianapolis but after work I won't have the time to drive that far. Also, what Northern Cincy courses would you recommend that I could hit on the drive over. I have played Winton and Miami Whitewater in that area around 74 W out of town. On the way home I also stopped at Gulley. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks,
nate cappy

Harbin is just a bit north off I-275.
Check out the local course map on the front page of the site to see all of the courses.

A few of us played Charlie Vettiner in L'ville yesterday and I'd have to say that it's one of the best around. I cannot compare it to any other course really. It has distance, woods, open shots, plenty of OB and mandos-yet many holes are still reachable.

Every tee shot is a little different-and if you can't get off the tee, you can be in for big trouble. There is a good amount of well-marked OB, but nothing ridiculous. Overall, the course is very well-designed and well cared for. You don't need to have a cannon, or be extrememly lucky to shoot a good round-but you do need to hit your lines, and be fundamentally sound. I'd highly suggest it if you're down that way.
