Pro: Most amazing care of a course I have ever witnessed, including the two Majors I've seen in person. Hands down THE best course in Cincinnati and absolutely one of the best in the world. World Class course in every sense, from design, game challenge, course maintenance, and beauty, it is going to be hard to find another experience as perfect as this anywhere in the world.

The Con: Members only. OLD $ only. If this isn't you, make friends with a member or a grounds crew person (they get to play walking for free on Monday after 1pm).

Pace of Play: Excellent

Course Conditions: Excellent

Staff Friendliness: Excellent

Value for the Money: Excellent

Quality of food & beverage: Excellent

Off-Course Amenities: Excellent

Course Difficulty:  Extremely Challenging
