The Golf Club at Yankee Trace touts the title of "Dayton's best golf course" as well as being the top public course in the entire Miami Valley. The club has two courses, the nine-hole Vintage Course and the challenging 18-hole Championship Course. Both courses sprawl across lush, grassy meadows. The Vintage Course has a classic design that is player-friendly enough for beginner. For more advanced players, it is great for some quick practice or as a warm-up to the longer golf course. In addition to the 27 holes of golf, Yankee Trace also offers a bentgrass practice range. One of the main reasons the club has remained so popular since opening is the staff's commitment to providing country club atmosphere and service for the price of a public course.

Massive outing, along with numerous leagues made this an impossible 18 hole round. While the staff gave us a voucher for 18 holes, this doesn’t help us with the one day we had available to play golf this week.

The course was still wet from rain which led to cart path only. The pace of play was very slow on the front nine because of the cart path only requirement but only on the front nine. The second nine was much faster. I don’t know if this was related to groups only playing nine holes or they dispersed to the other 9 hole course.

Nice course though

Yankee Trace is a fantastic track with many challenging holes. The fairways were in excellent condition. However the greens were disappointing by being too bumpy and slow for my taste. The pace of play could have been better, too, but it was a beautiful Friday afternoon with a lot of play.

Course was in great shape, even though it was cart path only today from all the rain we've had. Staff was very friendly and pace of play was as to be expected with the conditions. Will definitely play here again and recommend this to anyone who hasn't played here.

Yankee is a good layout, can play long from the back tees if the fairways are soft. The greens seem to varying a lot from early season to late season. They need to remind people to fix their pitch marks on the greens as there were a lot of blemishes and I healed marks on every green, to the point any putt over 10 feet seemed to be impossible. The last time I played there the greens had not been mowed in several days and were visibly shaggy, combined with the pitch marks you might have week been playing on tempory greens. I enjoy the course but wish it was better maintained.
