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.

Excellent Value

The course was in pretty decent shape. A couple spots where the fairway was burnt. But that’s to be expected. Greens rolled a little slower than what I’m used to. Not a bad thing though. The course was taken care of pretty well. Staff was very nice and accommodating. The restaurant/bar was great. Food was excellent and service was prompt. Overall, this place was top notch for the value. Would love to play here again!

grass cutting

Greens and tees needed cutting. Greens extremely slow.
Some areas around the greens had 2-3 inches of rough.
The weather was great for the last five days.
Some areas in front of greens were hard like concrete.
It's a great layout and challenging.

Perfect day

Super friendly staff. Great pace of play.

Grass is in great condition for being early in the year. I'm not a great golfer, but shot 104 which is better than what I shoot on easier courses.

Good layout but in bad shape

Aston Oaks has a lot of potential -- the layout is interesting and challenging., Right now, the course is in pretty poor shape. Several fairways are dead, a couple tee boxes are unusable, and holes 16-18 have some pretty severe construction going on. Be prepared in case you plan to play sometime this spring.
