The Course ~

From the Championship tees at 6,764 yards, the par 71 course can and will play much longer than the scorecard depicts.  At the same time three other sets of tees and generous landing areas allow every skill level of golfer to enjoy the challenge. In the final analysis, the length of the course is not the major factor in the level of complexity at Ivy Hills. The true challenge is in the abundance of elevation changes throughout the property, the variety of shot values into the green complexes, bunkering, large undulating greens, and the gusty westerly winds.

The golf course is as diverse as its scenery, yet tests every facet of the player's ability. With narrow fairways and firm, fast greens surrounded by dramatic and strategic bunkering, players quickly realize that all the shots are required to play Ivy Hills.  Holes 10 through 13 make up what has become known as “Amen Corner” at Ivy Hills. If a player can successfully navigate this series of holes there are plenty of other opportunities to score.  As a result, Ivy Hills is a thinking man's course. A player at the top of their game would be offered strategic and at times heroic options on every hole.

Ivy Hills is one of Ohio’s best-kept secrets. There are few places that offer beauty and uniqueness while testing the player to their highest capabilities. Ivy Hills is as finely balanced and strategically sound as it is challenging.
