I guess this is a good thread to ask as well. Any recommendations for a decent public golf course in the area?
Are you willing to venture about half hour from downtown?
is fairly new (mid 2000s), a lot of fun holes that can be attacked by cutting corners or challenging water hazards, an island 9th hold par 5, a reachable par 4 or 2, some long Par 3s. Great coarse about 5-10 minutes off the 275 beltway in the Milford area.
If you want to go a little further beyond that, Greg Norman has a nice couse,
Its been a long while since I played it, they used to have an $85 play as many holes as you want price point. A ton of heather grass as well as (2) dual hold greens. A fun course, but you're looking at a 45+ min drive from downtown.
There's the norman course up by King's Island, sharon woods, crooked tree and a ton more. the Cincy area is one of the best areas for golf in terms of the number of public courses and the costs to play them on a regular basis. There's a lot of decent layouts that you can play for under $40 (nothing special mind you, but not complete goat patches). and a bunch more in the $40-$90 price point.
