The Kittyhawk Golf Center facility possesses three of only six municipal golf courses in the Dayton area. The Hawks Course is one of two regulation courses at Kittyhawk and there is also one executive course. The courses are very similar in landscape and challenge but the Hawks Course is the shorter of the two regulation courses. The terrain is flat with trees scattered throughout. The course is fairly open with fairways that are wide open and the greens are large with subtle breaks. Man-made lagoons create water hazards that come into play on fourteen holes and there are many sand bunkers as well.

I played the Hawk a ton when I was a kid. The course has changed a bit since then, with trees more grown and a LOT more water but it was still fun to play. The weather wasn't great but the course was in decent shape (tees needed watered, greens were too firm). All in all, it was a good day and I had fun playing a course from my past!

Nice course with great greens but the fairways need to be cut a little lower because you don’t get any roll. It can use a few more ball washers and have more than one beverage cart running

I must have dropped my wallet when I got it out to retrieve the ticket at the starter's shack - someone found it and turned it in!

The course was not crowded at all - I played by myself, and although it was hot and a little windy at times, the weather conditions were pretty awesome.

The fairways and greens could use a little water, but other than that the course conditions were good - rough was not that bad, so an errant shot or two didn't kill my round. Errant chipping and putting did!

Nice for a public course the greens are in nice condition sand bunkers are a different story alot of small rocks and very little sand in most bunkers. Very friendly staff in the pro shop hit or miss when it comes to the restaurant usually closed in the early morning tee times ....

Course was horrible. Greens were absolutely awful. We had a guy playing alone ahead of us, but hitting probably 6 balls on every shot. I yelled to him and he flipped me off then went onto another hole.

I love city owned courses and hope more cities would see the value in investing in them. Great for the community.

Kittyhawk was in really good condition. Greens were perfect. My only knock is I thought the fairways were long. Nice open lay-out plenty of challenge from sandtraps and water.

Whoever they have cutting the greens misses about a quarter of the grass.......not one straight cut line on 36 holes on both courses I played yesterday......about 1,000 ball marks per green makes it almost impossible to have a pure and true putt........the bunkers are absolutely full of rocks. The course workers at kitty hawk drill holes in the eggs of the geese to control the population but it's not working.....tons of geese and their feces all over the place. I had to move my ball due to about a foot and a half long terd stringer across the line of my put. The course was so backed up with people that it took over 9 1/2 hours to play 36 holes straight through with no stops. when I play Jamaica run for $12 on a hot buy I feel fantastic with that deal but when I pay $12 to play at Kitty Hawk I feel like I paid a little too much.
