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.

Home of the Boomer

Weekday, half full parking lot, and the round still took over 4.5 hours.

Average age was roughly 65 and the vast majority were playing from the wrong tee boxes, spending far too long looking for balls & on the green.

Course is in great shape aside from a few tee boxes.

If you like driving in the left hand lane of a highway in a line of cars going 55 mph, this course is for you.

Been here before and will come back again. Course in very good shape with the exception of some of the tee boxes, which could use a good roll after a heavy rain to flatten them out. And bunkers didn't look like they were raked to start the day.
Yeah, I'm nit-picking a little but like I said, the course was in very good shape and I'd definately play here again!
Oh...would have been nice to have a beverage cart on the course.

Well maintained

Very nice course. Nice layout. Challenging and fun. Sand traps were very well maintained compared to other courses in the area. Greens and fairways were in excellent condition. The rough was challenging due to being long but that is why it is called the rough.( The rough was free of weeds) staff was friendly and play was moving along steadily. I have to say that this is one of the best looking courses to play at in central Ohio.
