Columbus >Golf Courses > Champions Golf Course
There is better golf for less in Columbus. Nice bent grass fairways, nice greens, nice trees, terrible bunkers, bad pin placements, and a couple of really dumb holes unless you like blind tee shots and a quirky par 5. All and all this course is overpriced.
A championship course at also-ran prices..
Champion in Name and Deed
Champions municipal golf course is a first-rate facility, rated by Business First magazine as Central Ohio's most challenging public course. The track sports hilly, mature terrain, excellent architecture and difficult sloping greens. Ball placement is everything here and Champions will force you to use every club in the bag.
Just the Facts, Mac
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., this is a par-70 that spans over 6,555 yards. It carries a rating of 71.2 and a whopping slope of 127. If the course itself becomes too frustrating, full practice facilities with driving range, putting green and chipping areas are on-site. A Champions Walkway honors those who have distinguished themselves on behalf of the City of Columbus.
Long Greens Without the Long Green
Greens fees are like all Columbus public golf courses: reasonable. Champions is a popular facility for leagues and outings, so call ahead for your tee time.
Tough if not Straight. Champions is challenging for those that are not used to a target course. Many of the holes require an accurate tee shot because of the surrounding trees; more important is the approach shot to smaller and sometimes very thin greens. For those golfers that have learned to play a slice or a hook on an open course, this course will add about 10 shots to your score. A side note, the subsidized housing nearby provided loud and obnoxious rap music that was at first comical, but became annoying after you realize it will be heard throughout the entire round.
great classic layout. Formerly a private course, donated or sold to the city of columbus. Gets a lot of play, and like a lot of municipal courses shows it. Can be a little rough around the edges. In particular the tees are sometimes in poor shape.
