Amazing course.

Please ignore my last post, this course is amazing and is one of my favorite courses in Ohio. That post was meant for a different course and could not be retracted after submitting incorrectly.

This is a really unique gem of a course. You can play from different tee boxes which drastically changes the course layout.

The course is well maintained and it has nice scenic views.
The course even has guys running carts out to you as you park.

Poorly maintained course

I was only was able to play 9 holes of my scheduled 18. The course tried to call and cancel and hour and half before my tee-time but they called my home# so we ended up showing up as normal. It was a mess but they agree to let us try and play 9 holes so the drive wasn't a complete waste.

My group and I played from the back tee boxes (blue) which were overgrown with grass. I use a 3 1/4 in. tee and the grass was level with my tee with my ball just being above the overgrown grass.

The fairways were patchy and the grass around and the sand in the bunkers were not maintained.

The positives, the greens were in good shape and were putting fast for the round and the food inside the clubhouse was excellent.

I would not recommend this course. The pictures do not represent the current state of todays course.

THE Place

Just the best layout … a beautiful day and played well on the front in less than 2 hours … hit 11 and a SUPER slow foresome … had 3 groups waiting on them on 14… it was just a brutally slow finish .
Oh for a Ranger Rick sighting but didn’t happen .
3 hour back 9 … It was still Kensington. Great dinner night cap on the patio. If it were only the beginning of the season but a great round to end it …if you’ve not played here you’re missing it ….

The price is right - you get what you pay for.

Absolutely a great lay out tee to green. Very pretty golf course. Unfortunately, they must not have the cash flow to keep up. Fairways are in horrible shape. Lots of mud in fairways. It’s a shame. Layout is great condition is awful.

Good bang for the buck!

This course always plays nice. A couple of holes were wet, the only drawback. Amenities food and staff are excellent. The course is challenging the pace of play was acceptable to good. You won’t regret around at this place.

Kensington has character.

Terrain and beautiful homes along fairways make this one of Youngstown's best golf courses. I always enjoy playing there. Course is in great shape. All tee boxes are flat and nicely cut.

This course is absolutely beautiful! Little hard and very enjoyable. Our biggest problem was the ground was saturated. I know we have had a lot of rain this week —but the front nine were very water logged. But would definitely play this course again!

Love the course environment needs improving

The pace of play was terrible again and with no starter setting the pace of play this place gets backed up all the time. 15 minute waits between shots and the greens need to be taken care of better they are destroyed!
