Fairways and greens were in great shape. Not a lot of leaf litter on the ground made for easy ball hunting after shots that were not in the fairway. Great scoring opportunities as few par 4’s are easily reached from tees with good tee shots. Employees were great and friendly will return to play another round.

My first time playing this course. We had a group of three in the middle of the day on a Sunday and it was busy. While pace on the front nine was slightly slow, it was certainly acceprable.

It was a 42 minute drive to the course but well worth it. The course was in great shape for this late in the season. The greens were excellent.

The course is a little on the shorter side, but accurate drives we're needed as the rough was definitely deep.

We enjoyed this absolutely beautiful course and will return.

I've been playing AJ Jolly all my life and it just seems to get better (the course, not me). AJ is one of the best maintained, most beautiful (especially in Fall) public courses in Greater Cincinnati. Challenging but not discouraging. I highly recommend it.

AJ was in very good shape. Greens good -- not fast but very true. Fairways good. Rough a little patchy and quite a few hardpan lies but not bad. Great deal through Golf Now.

They don't have room for a range but could put a chipping/short game area and nets for full swing warm-up to the left side of the first hole.

Play here many times during the year and do not know of any course that compares for value or conditions. Kenton co, is terrible, Twin Bridges is o.k. for what it is(country course) and Hickory sticks is getting better but still needs a little more tlc. Now that Terry Jolly is not the head pro I hope the course continues to be a great choice for a scenic round. Also, they have a great senior rate.
