Moundbuilders Country Club offers a truly unique experience with a layout that plays through prehistoric Indian burial mounds. The mounds appear on 11 of the golf course's holes. The designer, Thomas Bendelow, was careful to preserve the ancient mounds, incorporating them in such a way that they were showcased rather than merely built around. Opened in 1927, the traditional layout still feels modern thanks to the well designed, challenging holes. Over the decades, the landscape has matured beautiful with towering trees and fields of native grasses. The golf course has also managed to maintain consistently well maintained conditions throughout the years. The course has valuable cultural and historic significance, but it also offers an excellent round for players of all skill levels, which is why it has a reputation of being one of the best private golf clubs in Central Ohio.

Great Layout

Course was managed well. Greens were rolling fast, fairways were hard and compact, but overall the course was excellent and the layout is awesome with all the mounds going through the fairways and around the greens. This is a great course for a good golfer specially 1-9 handicap. From the tips it will test your true golfing skills.
