This 31-hole, public-access facility is located about 22 miles from downtown Cincinnati. Most prominent here is the Grizzly Course, which was designed by Desmond Muirhead and Jack Nicklaus. The Grizzly hosted a PGA Tour event from 1973 to 1977, followed by an LPGA event from 1978 through 1989, and then a Senior Tour event from 1980 to 2001. The peak-season rates (with cart) for the Grizzly are $39 weekdays and $49 on weekends before noon. (After 12:00 p.m. on weekends, the rate is $39.)

The Bruin is a 9-hole, double-tee course. Par is different between the 3rd and 12th holes, so our scorecard and mapping is for 18 holes to cover the difference. The 18-hole walking rates are $14 weekdays and $15 weekends. A four-hole academy course is also available for practice in real-world conditions.

This course has updated information like phone, address, description or scorecard and is pending approval. These changes must be approved before they will be available on a SkyCaddie.

Very well run facility. Andy and his staff do a great job! If you can score at this course you can score anywhere. Very playable but tight. Must drive ball in the fairways to score well.

The Grizzly from the tips, while not overly long, is a challenge! I was really surprised...wasn't expecting the course to be as nice as it was. Well run facility, conditions were very nice and the layout a challenge for any level of player. Only negative thing I can think of is it has a very small range and parking arrangements are somewhat interesting. If you are in the area...give it a try for sure.

The golf course is in decline from back when the Grizzly course hosted a PGA Tour event and later LPGA and Senior PGA events. It's also not the same course since about 7 of the holes are different.

The big problem with the current course condition is that the greens were over saturated with water and damaged from ball marks which of course was a bigger problem due to the wet greens.

Course plays tight to homes but it is in great shape and a fun course to play.

Course is nothing special for the price and considering it's a Nicklaus design. Not a lot of elevation changes or other items of interest. It is a pretty straight forward layout. Don't care much for courses that wind their way through a housing development as this does, with big signs everywhere saying: "You are responsible for any property damage!" Definitely not a walkers course as there are quite a few long treks from green to next tee.
