Maketewah Country Club is named after the Mohawk word for "Land of the Mill Valley," and is among the Midwest's top private golf clubs. The clubhouse has welcomed golfers since 1930. The golf course architect Tom Bendelow first designed the country club's championship golf course, and the golf course architect Donald Ross touched up some parts and redid others, making for one of the higher-rated golf courses in the region.

Trees line the track at Maketewah Country Club, where a well-manicured course navigates hills and valleys, offering bentgrass tees, fairways and greens. The club has hosted U.S. Open qualifiers for four decades. The course has also hosted local and regional events, including the U.S. Pro-Am, the Legends of Cincinnati Golf, the Bob Hope Classic, Queen City Open and several Southern Ohio PGA events.

After a round of golf at the Maketewah Country Club, head back to that old-school clubhouse for fine dining, casual snacking and comfortable drinking.

Fantastic old golf course that is kept in immaculate condition. The greens are as undulating as any you will ever play. Huge ravine runs through the course making nearly every hole uphill or downhill. If you have the opportunity to play at Maketewah don't pass up the chance.

Staff Friendliness: Good

Value for the Money: Good
