Beckett Ridge Golf Club was designed by Jack Kidwell, a well known name in Ohio golf. The course has a classic design that is inlaid with meandering streams that weave through stands of mature trees. The rolling landscape was deftly incorporated into the golf course. The layout offers a variety of holes ranging from long to short, tight to open. It is definitely a course that requires some strategy. One of the most memorable holes is the par-5 fifth. It measures 541 yards, but this downhill hole plays much shorter. There are out-of-bounds on either side and the tricky fairway slopes right to left but with some strategy and a little skill it is possible to make it home in two. Beckett Ridge is one of Southwest Ohio's best golf courses.

Booked through Golf Now, with a Hot Deal@ $19.00.

I Drove 50 minutes to the course. Walked up to "Trailer" parked in front of building. Discovered building under construction. Asked for rest room, told they have an out house around back.

Then proceeded to check in. When he checked reservation, he informed me they are having a problem with Golf Now, and will not be honoring the 'Paid in Advance' reservation. The staff member then indicated I should try to contact Golf Now for a refund. He then said he could allow me to keep my tee time but now I owe the course an additional $40.00.

After driving almost an hour, and adjusting work schedule, I paid the Fee. I told the course representative I'm disappointed in the way they conduct business. . All the guy could say was "sorry, I'm just doing what I was told by management".

The kicker is the building was 'under repair' and this entire fiasco occurred from a Trailer parked out front.

I would have expected them to be happy people were still coming to this Golf Facility, honor any prepaid fees, and remove their course from the Golfnow website.

*Instead they just put some poor schlep employee out there to inform the golfers of their same day decision to be inconsiderate and lacking in class.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, however, we truly apologize for any miscommunication or inconvenience regarding your recent reservation. We were experiencing issues with some of our online tee time inventory that was posting and unfortunately were unable to honor those prepaid rates at the time. However, if you have not yet done so, you can reach out to GolfNow Customer Support for a full refund of your reservation due to these circumstances. We apologize again if this was not clarified, but hope we have the chance to welcome you back to Beckett Ridge for a much-improved golf experience in the future.

Golfed Saturday morning Memorial Day weekend, owner and staff were very friendly doing the best they can with their clubhouse decommissioned at the moment. Course is in really good shape, nice carts with USB ports. Some holes aren’t pretty tough due to the hills and dog legs. Can’t wait to come play when the clubhouse is up.

Traps are full of rocks and clay.

Owner has removed traps located in key positions around the course -- poor choice.

Cups appear to have not been cut for a week - hairy and beat up.

No clubhouse negligence lead to frozen water pipes and water damage.

No driving range.

This used to be a course in good condition but every year is worse.

Except the club house failed an inspection and isn’t open. No indoor bathroom (port-a-potty) available, no lunch at the turn. The employee is outside with a cooler full of cold beer and cart keys.

Aside from that the course is in good shape. I’ll know to bring some snacks for the next time.

There should never be a course that charges full seasonal play rates that. 1) has no indoor restrooms available for all players especially female. 2) has no restaurant or lounge facilities for after play. 3) has shown no effort to improve teeing areas over last few years. 4) these areas need to be improved if repeat play is expected by management

The course was nice, the staff was great and the weather was perfect. The greens were fast as he11 and the fairways manicured. The only bad thing that cant be changed is... 90% of your shots after the drive are on a uphill/downhill slope with the ball above/below your feet.
