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.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
