Ohio State University Golf Club (Scarlet course)

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1939

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.
