Delaware Golf Club sprawls across rolling countryside that lends an idyllic and secluded setting. Donald Ross designed the original nine holes in 1922 and they were later joined by a second nine designed by Michael Hurzdan in 1998. The layout meanders through wooded valleys and ravines. The rolling fairways are fairly wide but they are lined with mature trees and bunkers heavily guard the small, undulating greens. There are also water hazards that come into play on a number of holes. Delaware Golf Club's second hole is notably challenging, it is arguably the toughest hole on the front nine. This par-4 requires not only accuracy in order to avoid the ravine on the left but also distance to carry the lake and remain in the angled fairway. Golfers will be faced with one of the most difficult putts on the golf course if their approach finds the wrong side of the green.

Good Value for Off Season

Course was in fine shape especially for playing it in the off season. Biggest issue is that everything else is old and in need of TLC. The road in has potholes and the cart paths are in terrible condition (where there are cart paths). For a course that costs upwards of $70 normally I expect better.

Course itself has some very unique holes and is much more hilly than a lot of other Columbus area courses

nice course--hilly & tight on back nine!

we've played DCC many times and enjoy it's ease of use, friendly patio staff and value pricing. Only played 9 and this time played the back, which we enjoyed more than the front as it's not winding through the housing, it's more woodsy--as well as challenging w/ hills and narrow fairways. only lament about course conditions is that the leaves were falling and we lost several fairway balls as a result (I swear they were in the fairway!)

Decline in conditions

It seems like a poorly managed club that succeeds in spite of itself due to limited course options in the area. The course conditions have declined significantly over the past 2 months with green disease, no sand on tee boxes or on carts. Areas roped off “under repair” have not been addressed for the 3 years I have played there .

Delaware

Overall, of course, was what I expected. We got a good deal on GolfNow, and played in a reasonable amount of time. Some of the greens were a little beat up, which would be solved if everybody repaired their ball marks! And some of the sand traps could have used a quick rake, but the better option is to just stay out of them!
The only thing that was bothersome was that the grounds crew Grass cutter literally was on every green for six of the first seven holes! It would’ve been much less nerve-racking had he gone out earlier or if he let us play and moved aside.

Great Course

Course gets harder as you play. Staff is friendly.

Driving range is nice to have on site, not the biggest fan of hitting into a pond but no big deal.

Putting and chipping green included with a sand trap to practice from.

Went as a single and was paired up at 7:39 on a Wednesday. The people I played with turned out to be great but didn’t feel like playing on my own would have affected things negatively.

Had an excellent round and will return!

Enjoyable course

Had a great round overall. Long term thought on the course….. could 15 be modified some to be a par 5 to get to a par 72 course? Just a thought. Also the entrance off of 23 is weird. Maybe modifying the entrance and the 15th tee to make a par 5 could be one big project. That would be neat.

Love this course so much...probably my favorite to play. Even when the VERY challenging black tees just eat my lunch, i still enjoy it tremendously! The greens are showing the wear from the seasonal play, but all of that considered, still roll well. Oh yeah, FIX YOUR DIVOTS, and be respectful to the course and maint. staff....everywhere, you play!!! If anyone wants to give me the best golf gift ever...a membership for here would probably blow a fuse in my head or heart!
