Ohio State University Golf Club (Scarlet course)


Private course - for members and their invited guests only.
   Ohio State University Golf Club (Scarlet course) Est. 1939

Where2Golf says: 

Ohio State University Golf Club is home to a 36-hole golf facility, located a 10-minute drive from downtown Columbus, Ohio. The Club's excellent Scarlet course, is rated one of the top "university campus" golf layouts in the United States.

"Sandwiched" between the front and back nines of the Club's shorter Gray course, the Scarlet was originally laid out by the much revered Dr Alister MacKenzie, and later updated by Jack Nicklaus. The well-crafted and excellently bunkered layout lays down a wonderful challenge for your all-round game. However, this semi-private club is exclusively for the use of those with an Ohio State University affiliation. Course description, images and other details to follow soon.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
