Hiawatha Golf Course is a public, 18-hole course located in Mount Vernon. The course is set amongst the rolling hills of Knox County, surrounded by acres of lush countryside. Like many other courses in central Ohio, this course was designed by local architect Jack Kidwell although it has undergone several changes in its design since opening in 1962. Creeks meander through the tall stands of trees that have matured nicely since their original planting during the construction of the golf course. The landscape is also dotted with several lakes, which come into play on a number of holes. There is also the occasional bunker to watch out for. Hiawatha G.C. has been owned and operated by the same family since it opened, providing a warm and friendly atmosphere that is perfect for outings and tournaments.

Another Solid Kidwell Course

Course conditions were iffy, fairways/ tee boxes poor and greens good. The course uses outter portions of property well to generate elevation changes. Course has aggressively abandoned all bunkers and several back tees.

The layout is very good and the course has fun Kidwell greens.

Either too wet or too dry

Hiawatha is a good course if you are a beginner, but if you have played nicer courses this will seem harder than those nicer courses. When it rains, puddles are everywhere and greens are super slow and you chunk almost every shot. When it doesn't rain the fairways do have good roll, but it is impossible to get under the ball, I had 3 holes with 3 chips because you can't get under the ball. The crouch family that owns the course is very nice and the food in the clubhouse is pretty good. If you are just looking for a good time, that can be had here.

Great review! Note: You're not supposed to "get under the ball". You're supposed to strike ball-first, then take the divot forward of the ball.
