You need a marshal

I went out early and pace of play was terrible. 2 1/2 front nine then made the turn and thank gosh they stopped to eat so we just went through. The first 4 holes on the back were quick til we caught walkers treading water. 4hr 15 to play 18 holes first thing in the morning STINKS

No Football Talk

Overall the course was great. I was able to get a great green fee from GolfNow for myself and two friends from Michigan. Playing on a great course like Cumberland Trails is nice way for a Buckeye to entertain two Michiganders with no discussion or comments regarding football. They played well and enjoyed the course. Thanks GolfNow and Cumberland Trails.

First Time Playing

Cumberland Trail did not disappoint

For a great $ from GN along with a reward and an early morning t time made this day perfect. The course was in great shape and the greens filling fast and true. I jumped between white and gold tees to suit my ability to score and have a great day. The there’s some I got paired with made the day very pleasurable. The staff at CT are very professional and want to move you along and not be out here forever, which is what I like. I usually don’t come across a favorable $ for this course and this one was too good to pass up. A truly pleasurable experience…. I will be back if the stars align properly…

Well maintained, could use some help up front with being a little more friendly

The course was in good condition, played nicely. My only complaint was the staff. Both gentlemen we talked to were rude, short, snobby. Not everyone has golfed at the place before so when asking questions you don’t expect all the staff to be rude and snooty.

Great Course, Phenomenal people

Cumberland has become not only my go to course if I want to work on my game, get a round in, enjoy a day with friends, and making sure I get any of my colleagues and friends out here so they can experience a beautifully kept course, great greens, challenging with the option of 5 sets of tees for each hole and I could go on. However, what separates itself from all the other courses in central Ohio is the people!!! I’m not just talking about the staff which does an amazing job along with the attention to detail. Each and every time I’ve gone over whether to play a round, utilize the range, chip & putt, or even go over to get delicious meals for very fair prices, each and every staff member from the Colonel all the way through to the starter are engaging with the people and on top of that the people within the community couldn’t be more welcoming and a joy to be around. I encourage anyone who has yet to have the experience and pleasure to not only play a great course which is maintained beautifully along with reinvesting in working each and every bunker but the true pleasure of being around solid and great people. Thank you all at the Cumberland Golf Club and the Cumberland community for sharing this gem with us as well as being very accommodating!!!

Great course... Played behind a group of SEVEN

The course was in excellent condition except for the fairway bunkers that look like they will eventually be fixed. The clubhouse is great. Excellent food and drink options. The biggest problem we had was that there was a group of SEVEN that played the back nine 2 groups in front of us. Disappointing on a Saturday afternoon, or any afternoon.

Worth the drive

Overall another great experience. Greens were excellent and the overall condition of the course was great aside from some work they are doing on the bunkers. No complaints here...free drop! This place is worth the price and drive.
