Situated in a lush valley bordering Blacklick Creek, Turnberry Golf Course is tucked away amidst mature forests and high fescue grasses. The course is one of seven municipal courses in the Columbus area. It has an unexpected location, which has added to its allure of being one of central Ohio's better-kept secrets. Arthur Hills designed the links-style, championship layout. At just over 6,700 yards from the back tees, this lengthy golf course tumbles across varying elevations. A cart would be best on this course. The front nine is more wooded but there is more water coming into play on the back nine. Strategically placed bunkers pose a formidable challenge throughout Turnberry, as do the fescue-lined fairways. On each hole, golfers face a tricky second shot to a small, elevated green.

Expected Fall Golf

Course was clean with very little leaves. Greens as expected with longer grass and a little sticky. No roll out on putts. Course was dry or a little damp with minimal roll in fairways. Good conditions for Midwest golf in late fall. Would play this corse every day in this shape.

Good layout, well maintained. Fairly short course that isn’t super challenging. But fun place to play.

Course was over watered. Greens were very inconsistent. Our cart broke down on the 3rd hole & they replaced it with one that was also in bad shape. 30 minute rain delay but we got the round in. I was expecting a little better from a city course. Still overall a good round of golf.
