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 but not Great

I know it's early but please put porta johns out. The only place to use the restroom was the clubhouse.

Entrance is on one side of a divided highway AND your exit out another back exit that makes to take country roads to "find" your way home.

Unfortunately greens were just aerated and dusted with sand. Made for challenging putting but overall good speed to the greens.

Overall good evaluation but I probably won't go back. To many other courses in the area that are more convenient to find with the same or better challenge.

Pace of Play Was Slow

Have played Delaware many times over the years. Played this round on an early spring day - one of the first nice weather days in Central Ohio. Pace of play was nearly 3 hours for 9 holes. Course is in decent shape for being so early in the season. Staff in the clubhouse are a little pretentious and can be intimidating for non-assertive golfers. I like the course and layout, but this course often over priced itself for what you get and there are better values elsewhere in Central Ohio.

Don’t play this course in the afternoon on weekends. Likely will run out of carts. There is no monitoring of foursomes that take how many carts and there is no starter
