Aston Oaks Golf Club
A challenging course. The wind, hills, slopes, water, uneven greens. trees, forest, and houses to boot.

Aston Oaks is a good course that could be a great course. The front nine has a couple nice holes and a few weird holes. The back nine is great, except for 17 and 18. The price is reasonable, and the staff is friendly.Nice layout on the westside of Cincinnati. I played it in late February, so it wasn't in Summer shape, but still a good track.

considering the rainy conditions the course looked beautiful. It was my first time playing there and can't wait to go back.

Most Challenging and Visually Appealing Layout in Cincinnati
Jack Nicklaus created a gem here. It has always been more fun to play golf if I was being tested and this course will do that. This is a course I would play over and over to conquer. Conditions were ok for this time of year and I can see there will be alot of improvements for next year.

Good Condition - Great Views
Very nice course with many different holes and lots of elevation changes. Played from the Gold (White) tees and there were plenty of variation in hole lengths. Not a course you can walk because the distance from Green to the next Tee was very long. Staff was great allowing us to start on hole 16 rather than wait for the 1st Tee to clear. Carts had GPS which really sped up play because you were not always looking for sprinkler heads or yardage markers. Course was fair, but not easy, with some holes being very tight with water or woods to contend with. Several holes had carries over lakes or streams and there were several waterfalls on the course. Good number of fairway and green-side bunkers kept it interesting. Houses lined most holes, but only were close to the course on one hole, so they did not diminish the experience. In the summer or spring when the trees have leaves on them, you would not see houses on many holes. All in all, a very good experience considering it is November and the price was very reasonable.

65° day in November in Greater Cincinnati
It was 65° in November in Greater Cincinnati. Is there any where else to be but on a golf course?

This course is in great shape with challenging holes. It has the country club atmosphere at public pricing. Pace of play on this day was pretty bad with a lot of waiting on each tee box. The course needs to spread out the tee times more or have some rangers out there quickening play.

Great challenge and value
I will not let the fact I got my first eagle on this golf course at all influence my review of this superb course!
We didn't lose a single ball in Fall leaves because the leaves were not on the course. Big kudos for that!
Mid-way through our round the starter presented us with a rain-check because they were aerating the greens even though we were playing. That was really cool.
Since my partner showed up an hour late, we shouldn't have gotten to play. However, the staff worked hard to get us on the course with another fellow who wanted to play. The staff started us on #9 even though they were backing up. After a couple of holes all groups spread out and it was not a problem.
I will DEFINITELY return to play many more times to this hidden gem!

Great Layout but not for Walkers
This is a really fantastic layout. The holes are all different and interesting. The conditioning was ok but playble.
The holes are so far apart, that it is impossible to walk.
With the great golf now deals they have, I'll play again.

Every hole is different, the fairways are in great shape and are bent grass or zoiza, greens are in good shape after a long summer drouth etc.
This is a great course to play every hole has its need for a good shot. Good surroundings and views. Golf carts have "GPS" and score keeping capabilities Very nice course to play anytime.

Good Course Design, Nice Facility
Aston Oaks is a great course for the value. It's got a challenging layout with generally narrow fairways and strategically placed hazards. The GPS built into every golf cart means less time planning shots, although that doesn't always guarantee a fast pace. One of my favorite courses in the Cincinnati area in the $30-40 range.

Great Layout condition is always questionable
Jack Nicklaus design very challenging and a lot of risk reward. This would be on of the top courses in Cincinnati if they kept up with the condition of the greens and fairways. It seems there are stints throughout the season when the course is in great shape and then falls apart.
