Fantastic Greens

Pendleton Hills is great course that is near Falmouth, KY. It is well worth the drive if you are coming from Cincinnati or Northern KY. The course is very well maintained and the greens are always in pristine shape, even in the off season. There greens are on par to the best country clubs in Northern KY.

Fun course to play. My playing partner on hole 17 missed a hole in one by 2 inches. Greens were in great shape and fast which we loved. Lots of fun and challenging holes.

greens!!!!! thumbs up!

have been playing this course on and off the last four years,and it is light years ahead of where it use to be. i by-pass the golf course in southern Campbell county, and drive a extra ten minutes to play Pendleton. the addition of the restaurant ,and bar, have made it a even better place to play. the greens are the most consistent I've played in the tri-state area. as they keep working on the course,it will only get better. i think it's worth playing a round,and then see what YOU think. what have you got to lose.

Best staff and greens around!

As a golfer, you are doing yourself a dis-service not to play Pendleton Hills. The greens are second to none in the greater Cincinnati area in my opinion.
The staff is always friendly, attentive and glad you are there. The course is scenic, plenty of elevation changes, but fair to the mid handicapper.
Constant updates and improvements are another reason to give PH a look. Worth the drive, and the food there is outstanding!

Women friendly Course

I play this course more than any other course in the area. Over the past 2 years the course has improved in leaps and bounds. Very happy with all the upgrades and updates. A new couples league that just got started this year was so much fun and looking forward to it next year.

Great Course, Great Restaurant, Great People

This golf course is my favorite! The restaurant is better than I ever expected. The chicken quesadilla and mozzarella sticks are excellent. My husband loves their salmon, burgers, salads and steaks. He eats there often. Ownership has truly invested in their community. They have the best golf pros around. Their greens are as good as you'll find anywhere. Thank you for a great time!

My 15 year old son plays at least once a week and would play everyday if weather and school were not obstacles. This is our second year to join back since the early 2000's and we are extremely satisfied with everything the course has to offer. We will definitely be members for years!

WHAT A GEM

If you haven't played this course and met the people there you don't know what you are missing. The greens there are absolutely fabulous. Fast and true. Sometimes the rough gets a little thick but still very playable. The front side is a traditional 70's course. Plenty of trees and pretty straight forward. The back is a whole different story. The greens have some slope and can be challenging depending on where the pins are. A few holes you have some blind shots but still very manageable. There are two pro's there to answer all your questions and you can take a lesson from them as well. They are the best tandem pro's in Northern Kentucky. After your round they have an awesome restaurant with a huge menu with great staff to wait on you. You can't go wrong with this place.

10/10

It's just far enough away to feel like you're getting that country air, but close enough to get to where you're not driving all day. The staff is amazing, I couldn't tell you enough good things about the food and service. The golf course is fun, no matter how many times I play it.

Course needs work

Fairways suffered in the heat early in the year and never fully recovered. Most greens were in decent shape. Hilly course which makes it a little interesting at times.. would play again

Not what it used to be !

I was a member of Pendleton C.C. until it was sold. Stayed a member for 2 years after new owner. Found it was costing more to be a member with only pool benefits as the service not provided to daily payers.Played often for a year then started playing other courses. Now play ther 2 times this year. Greens are pretty good, smooth and pretty quick, with some burn out. Fairways are about 40 % bare overall with lots of bare (dead or burnt grass) we played at 12:00 on Sunday- Played pretty fast, but for 3 Hours on a 90 + day only saw 1 sprinkler being used. Nice course left to go bad.
