Rating 72.2

Located adjacent to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, Safari Golf Club was carefully carved from mature forests. This tight course is not particularly long, but it has a varied design that appeals to a number of different tastes and skill levels. The layout features tree-lined fairways and water hazards on several holes. There are also strategically placed bunkers lurking treacherously beside the greens. The golf course starts off with a challenging par 4 that features a dramatic drop from the tee to the green. It finishes with two demanding par 4s as well. The 17th and 18th holes both feature a slew of challenges including rolling, tree-lined fairways and tricky stream crossings. Although it presents a formidable test on some holes, Safari Golf Club's hazards are straightforward with no surprises.

Nice course

Course was in good shape. Relatively short from the white tees, but most of the greens have slope and putted true. Lots of parallel fairways. Not recommended for walkers - lots of space between some of the holes. Would definitely play again.

Friendly staff and good pace of play

The staff were friendly from check in to tee time. The course us in great shape, nice practice range. Pace of play is a little slow. More likely players trying to find their golf balls.
