Foxfire Golf Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf, the Foxfire Course and the Players Club Course. The Players Club was added in 1993.The layout is a deft combination of traditional American golf and traditional British links design that provides the perfect complement to the original. The golf course is the more challenging of the two, but not by much. The layout features narrow fairways lined with trees and water hazards on eight holes. There are three particularly tricky carries over water. Strategically placed bunkers and contoured mounding also treacherously lurk by the greensides. The par-4 16th hole is the course's signature. This demanding hole plays uphill through trees to a green that is guarded by five bunkers. The most memorable hole though, might be the par-5 eighth, which features the longest sand bunker in the Midwest.

Sad. Quickly becoming unplayable

What’s happened to this once-great course is really sad. The course conditions started going downhill about 4-5 years ago, but now they are completely deplorable. Every tee box is almost 100% dirt. Most fairways are completely burned out and lacking grass. The fringe is gone on every green. The greens themselves are rock hard and can’t hold a ball even from a short iron. It’s obvious that there hasn’t been a drop of water applied to the course in quite some time.

I was hopeful that the recent sale of the Foxfire course would’ve pumped some money into this course, but sadly it seems to be the opposite. It’s obvious that they are doing nothing except mowing the grass (in the few places it still exists) these days. Really sad, the course layout is one of the best in Central Ohio, but without a serious turnaround in the next year or two, I don’t see how they can remain open much longer.

Photo below is of the 18th fairway. Sadly, this is how the fairways look on almost every hole.

Awful Condition High Price

Do not waste your time with this drag track. Should cost $20 to play here tops. The course was extremely bad when I played.

Used to be pristine now its sad to play here

Foxfire Players Club used to be a beautiful course to play. Now, the course is tired, well worn and you can tell management is no longer spending money to improve or at least maintain the course.

Good outing overall.

Pace of play was ridiculous. 5:23, not a ranger in sight. Course was in better shape than reviews would have you believe. Bunkers need some work. Overall good experience

Could be better

This could be the best design around, but the care and maintenance is poor. I give everyone a pass this year after a year with no revenue, but I hope they try harder to keep it up.

Fairways a little burnt out

Fairways and some parts of a few greens were burnt out and most if not all of the sand traps were like concrete hard.

This course was way better last year

Layout is difficult but fun as always. Course is in brutal shape. Fringe is burnt, greens are dead in places, some even are covered in weed. There is vast open cut sod as well. Will come back once upkeep returns.

A little effort maybe.

Bunkers terrible. Turf terrible. This course years ago was top notch. It could get back to that with a little time and effort however it appears that is not happening. Will not be back.

So Sad

First things first, I don't usually write reviews, but I felt I had to. The people who own the course said when they sold the Foxfire course for developing that they were going to use the windfall to upgrade the Players Club, which had slowly been deteriorating since it first opened up. The greens were not being properly maintained and the traps were atrocious. Well, they sold the front property and have used the profit on-- nothing at the course. Maybe the owner bought Him or Herself something nice, but it wasn't at the golf course. I don't know how much sand costs, but that would have been the bare minimum to do to make the course a little nicer. Hitting out of mud and muddy water in the traps stinks. Whoever the greens keeper is should be fired. There is crabgrass growing on the greens and dead spots all over. The owners have done nothing.
Now the pace of play. Five hours. Too long. There was a ranger, we told him about it and he said he would take care of it. The group in front of us a couple of holes later came back to us to let us know there was a six- some ahead of them. So I guess the ranger thought that was OK.
For 50 bucks I was very disappointed. I won't be going back and I will discourage others from going. For literally half the price you can play Upper Lansdowne in an hour less and it is in just as good a shape.

Disappointed with conditions

Pretty disappointed with the conditions of the course. In the past the greens were amazing and a good challenge but they were incredibly slow and many had bare spots. Pace of play was fairly slow causing us to wait on every shot. Probably will not come back here with other options in the area at a similar price point in better conditions.
