NorthStar Golf Club
NorthStar Golf Club measures out to a whopping 7,351 yards, which makes it one the longest golf courses in Ohio. The layout covers over 350 acres of woodlands interspersed with 21 ponds and three rambling creeks. Water is definitely a prominent presence on the course but there are also 41 sand bunkers strategically placed throughout. Being such a lengthy golf course, long hitters will have a chance to shine but sharp short game skills and accuracy are also vital to getting a good score. The versatile NorthStar layout is made even more playable with five different sets of tees that accommodate golfers of all skill levels. The semi-private course is open to guests everyday and the club offers all the extra amenities of a private club including an expansive heated pool and two tennis courts.

Best Course in Central Ohio
I grew up in Powell and have played all of the courses in the Columbus Area. This is by far my Favorite Track...Yesterday was my first time making it out there and it is in Perfect Shape. For those who haven't had the Pleasure it is worth the money.
Great and challenging
This course is long and very challenging. The fairways were a bit burned from play all summer. The greens were quick but true. It was very windy but lots of fun.
Worst round of golf in a long time
It took us 5hr and 45min with a cart to complete our round. We had 4 groups waiting on a par 3. No staff or rangers ever came out to enforce pace of play. Greens were recently aerated and staff did not mention as a courtesy to us before hand. Had we known we would’ve cancelled our tee time. For a late August round, it really hurt seeing a course destroy its greens when it’s playing to max capacity with golfers. We understand the need for the aeration, but it shouldn’t be done in the prime weeks leading into the football season! If someone is in the area, we would recommend playing Bent Tree right next door.
An amazing course with amazing people!
I have played this course about 30 times and it is in the best shape I have ever seen. Keep up the good work...
Best public course around.
I have grown up here in Columbus and played every course around. There is a reason I keep coming back to this one. It's challenging with a great layout and a bunch of different tee boxes for different skill levels.
The course is challenging and was in great shape. The pace of play was very slow due to a foursome ahead that spent a lot of time looking for balls and did not play ready golf.
Everything was great, course was in excellent condition. Very challenging from the green tees, variety of tee boxes for everyone, loads of fun.
An excellent layout
The staff was friendly and accommodating.
The course was in very good condition considering all of the rain and the lack of responsibility many players have regarding filling fair divots and ball marks on the green.
Northstar has an excellent practice area as well.
Used to be 5-star-- not now
1. The in-cart GPS flat out does not work-- useless. It continually jams up and does not respond to touch controls. We only used it for three shots in 18 holes. We played on a "cart-path only" day. This course cannot be played cart-path only without GPS.
2. Management should have informed us of cart-path only conditions before we got out onto the course. We only found out when the cart ceased to function off the path.
3. About 1/3 of the holes were in bad physical condition.
4. There was construction on a number of holes.
5. Pro shop employee acknowledged the problems but shrugged shoulders as to what to do about it.
I hope this course will return to it's former glory. But right now, they have problems.
Nice course but pace of play was so slow that the gps screen ended up shutting down for the last 6 holes and wouldn't allow us to preview holes nor could we see distances. It said we were too far behind but we were right behind the group ahead the whole time. No way to reset the screen.
great course but
excellent golf course, staff not so much. the ranger was nice but the clerk was short would not let me hit a small bucket of balls to warm up said members only can use the range. said he did not want to pick up the balls but several others were hitting practice balls. there was an 1 hour delay because it rained earlier but did not effect the course as far as conditions go it drained well. I believe it was we booked on Golf Now,. The pace of play was poor and backed up.
First time playing this course and I must say it lived up to what my friends were saying about it. Awesome course, great layout, great condition, and staff was awesome!! I will be back very soon
2nd time a charm
the only thing wrong with this course is that, there is not enough watering stations it was sunny and 85 so we could have used alot more water , so bring some bevarages !!
