Willow Run Golf Course
Willow Run Golf Course was designed by a ubiquitous name in central Ohio, Jack Kidwell. The local designer played a role in creating many of the state's courses but he infused a different character into each. Willow Run has an interesting layout that will test your shot making skills as well as your course management capabilities. The greens are bentgrass and the fairways are accented with Ohio bluegrass. Correct placement off the tees is the key to doing well, especially on the front nine. Plenty of water comes into play throughout the golf course as well as several strategically placed bunkers. Willow Run's back nine boasts one of the most challenging par 4s in Ohio, the 13th. The green on this tricky hole is fronted by a meandering creek.

Great for the money
Greens were pretty good. Fairways were very good. I like this course and I play it a lot. I don’t golf fast but geez are there some slow players out there. Not the course’s fault so I can’t criticize that. Great value for the money.
Great course for the money
Best condition I've ever seen the course in, just a bit of crab grass here and there. Pace of play was great, got 18 in in under 4 hours on a Sunday.....almost unheard of anymore, too many white belts playing the tips and thinking they are on tour usually! Practice putting green is in an odd area between holes 10 and 12 and is not really an easily accessible area. You have to walk in front of 10's tee box then watch your back because of white belts playing the tips and straight shanking tee shots 50 yards right at you!!....or I would rank it even a higher rating.
Pace was slow but it was 8:00 Sunday morning. Greens were in great condition.
I was pleasantly surprised. It's an older course with big trees which were great for the shade on a 90 degree day, but troublesome if you are not a straight shooter. I loved the greens. Super receiving with a good shot and putted well.
Typical struggles on a first time course. Didn't know where some of the water was but no big deal.
Several areas where there are major drainage issues, otherwise the course is in pretty good shape and reasonably priced.
Cheap and it shows.
Understanding we have had a rain recently, but the course was overwhelmingly saturated and bogged down all over. The fairways seemed to not even be cut, couldn't get a ball to do anything but come to a dead stop everywhere on the course. The greens rolled horribly and the wait at every hole was over 5 minutes. I have played here several times over the years and the attraction has always been the price point, but not any more. Cheaper and it shows.
Cart paths are extremely bumpy and leads to more problem with grass in certain areas.
