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.

Interesting track

Front 9 is a new edition and the back 9 is the classic Donald Ross design. Boy, could you tell the difference in difficulty! Felt like we played two different courses which was a lot of fun. Early season course conditions (unmowed tee boxes) but for the rainy weather the course overall was in good shape. Greens were rolling well. Would like to come back when the course is at top shape!

Don’t call the course for customer service

Very poor customer service (or should I say NO customer service) and rates extremely high for winter rates. Made several attempts to book a tee time over the phone given the iffy weather forecast in Columbus even leaving messages for a return call. That never occurred. Another individual in our group had to physically stop to get one scheduled.
