Aston Oaks Golf Club is perched atop rolling hills that overlook the Ohio River Valley. The Jack Nicklaus Design Group created the course, which sits on the former land of President William Henry Harrison. Although his presidency was short lived, traces of his legacy in Ohio can be seen throughout the golf course. Each hole was carefully carved from stands of mature white oak, hickory, and other native hardwoods. The course is tight and demanding with fast greens and plenty of elevation changes. The abundance of trees really characterizes the course. Between the 10th tee and the 11th green, there is a giant Buckeye tree that is the largest in the state. With all of the trees lining the fairways there was hardly a need to add bunkers, but there are some incorporated along the greensides that help to define some holes.

Always enjoy Aston Oaks

Various set of tees make it enjoyable for all. Being 72cyears old I have lost a lot of distance in the last few years but the shorter tee set ups help make it more enjoyable. The course is in great shape and the layout allows you to enjoy the wildlife. I have seen deer several times over the years and yesterday got to see a male turkey strutting his stuff. There is also a nice view of the Ohio River on one hole.

Great Course on the West Side

Really fun Jack Nicklaus designed course. Clubhouse is nice and GPS on carts. They have the longest drive I've experienced between two holes and the hole you drive to is probably the best on the course.

Hello, smoertle. Thank you for reviewing the course. We are sorry to hear you were not pleased with the pace of play or course conditions during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time along with keeping our course in pristine condition. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

I wish there was a way to fix it

Aston has a great layout. For early spring the course was in good condition. The staff is very accommodating. Pace of play has been atrocious the last three times I've played. This past weekend was 5 1/2 hours. Group in front of us had no business being on the course. It's one thing to be a bad golfer it's another thing to have no understanding of golf etiquette or pace of play. This group would stand on the tee boxes and have a conversation about who was going to hit first. Then in the fairways the entire group would drive to one ball and then the next person's ball, and so on. Then they stand around on the green discussing the 10 they just carded. Again, short of kicking them off the course I dont know what you do, because the ranger talked to them at least 5 times during the round. If this was the first time I would probably just brush it off, but third time in a row for a 5 hour plus round is ridiculous.

Poor shape with slow play

To start with the positives, the greens are in some of the best shape I have ever seen at Aston oaks. The positives end there. The pace of play for a Tuesday morning was very slow (~4:45) due to a single foursome that was never made to move faster nor let the multiple groups of 2/3 behind them play through despite rangers driving by multiple times.

The rest of the course was also not well kept. At least three holes were cart path only presumably due to the terrible shape of the fairways and the rough had many uncut areas where the grass was too long to find a ball one step off the fairway. I have played Aston oaks many times in my life, but I will not be back again this summer.

Great course if you want to be rude and play as a group of 16. This course USED to be top 5 and barely cracks the top 20 for public golf in cincy. Needs a lot of work especially on the back 9.

Slowwwww, but still a GREAT course

You get a couple nice days in December, and ya, it’s gonna be slow. The course had a ranger, a starter, and things seemed organized. That said, almost a 5 hour round. I’ve played here a number of times and haven’t seen this before. What I kept trying to focus on was the layout conditions and the top notch treatment of the staff. I live a long ways away, so I’ll have to say out the situation in terms with Funtime of year and whether it’s a day ripe for overplay, because virtually everything a good player wants from a course is found here.

Tee Boxes

The course was in good condition. The only detail that seemed subpar were a number of tee boxes that needed to be trimmed. The grass was almost rough condition at a nicer course. That struck our group as odd, especially on the par 3 boxes. Aside from this, greens were in good condition. Staff is always friendly.
