Pickaway Country Club
Pickaway Country Club is known for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. Jack Kidwell, a local architect who designed this course and many others in Central Ohio, utilized his familiarity with the terrain but still kept each golf course distinct. Pickaway has an interesting layout that will test your shot-making abilities and strategy with narrow fairways lined with trees and small, fast greens that are difficult to read. Water hazards come into play on five holes and there are nearly 50 bunkers strategically placed throughout. There is one particularly difficult par-5 hole that requires a 250-yard drive over a meandering creek. Although the golf course offers a fair amount of challenges, they are balanced by a number of wide-open fairways that have ample space.

Greens were super slow. Tee boxes no grass ,like a minefield,rough alot of deadpan ,and sparse grass ,ball always in a hole
The bunkers needed some work; not a lot of sand in some of them, and a number had casual water and weren’t playable (it had rained the day before). But the rest of the course was in great condition and gave us a terrific day. This course has undergone a lot of changes over the years, and they’ve been good ones. It’s a fun course to play—doesn’t beat you up, but keeps you honest.
Very great course condition and fun course layout tee boxes could use a little TLC but other than that no complaints whatsoever
Tee Times to close together, finished 3rd hole and 1st tee was backed probably 6 times deep. Ridiculous!! It’s happed last 2 outings there.
Course was in awesome shape, pace of play was very good and staff was extremely nice.
Played here 4-5 times this year. Every single time the pace of play has been painfully slow. Sharing tee boxes with the group (or multiple groups) in front of you is way too common. Not sure if it’s overbooking, starter not doing his job, lack of a ranger, or combination or multiple things, but I’ll avoid this course due to the fact that it’s an all day affair to go play golf. Maybe it would be better in the afternoon but I wouldn’t recommend trying to play here in the morning.
Greens and fairways were in fantastic condition. The rough was long in spots but fair. The tee boxes could’ve been mown shorter and had several spots with more dirt than grass but great value for such a nice course.
I highly recommend playing this course
I originally called and asked about the all-you-can-golf special for Fridays. Based on the response over the phone I felt that the person taking the call was not a fan of that special. So, I proceeded to book an 18-hole tee time on GolfNow instead. Got a hot deal (and rounded up to the nearest dollar for the donation) and it was $24.
The golf course was very well-maintained. Some bigger greens- and all in great shape. The bunkers were nice and soft…I had just golfed at a course a few days prior and their bunkers were hard (due to the lack of work put into them).
The course was packed. My beer was put into a plastic bag with ice. With it being hot outside, it had completely melted by the end of the first 9 holes (so I went in at the turn and they gave me another bag of ice). I assume they were just out of coolers because of how busy they were. When that happens, wish that they (this includes all golf courses) would allow your own empty cooler and they fill it inside.
The bartenders/workers were very calm and friendly. I wasn’t held up too much while golfing with a couple of strangers- they didn’t play slow themselves. It definitely made sense for the course to send you out with others without a foursome because I would have just been waiting anyhow. It would have been very difficult to play through everybody. If the course is busy like that the entire day, you’d probably only get in 54 holes (63-72 holes if you are lucky). Allot at least 4 hours to play 18 holes. My round took just slightly more than 4 hours (which wasn’t bad at all though for the course being packed).
I highly recommend playing this course. I will definitely be back.
I only golfed three times last year (in scrambles). Monday and then Friday were my first two times golfing this year. I have worked at golf courses (not with maintenance on the course) in the past and use to golf at least once a week. Better than a bogey golfer. Shot an 88 here (16 over) playing the back tees. If I play it a few more times, would probably shoot closer to 80-82. If you can’t hit your tee shot fairly straight, I recommend you play the white tees. A few holes from the blue tees requires a drive to start off very straight, or you will hit the tree branches. A slight fade or draw is fine.
Excellent Pace of Plan on a Holiday
This was the second round of the day around 12:36. Pace of play on the 4th of July was roughly 4:15 which is honestly great. The only negative thing I have to say is the greens were very slow compared to other courses I have played over the last two years.
Great golf for the price!
Course was in great shape. Greens all ran well. Rough was actually penalizing in most places. Sand traps didn’t look great but I didn’t hit in any. Used a hot deal and got a great price.
