Raintree South Golf Club
Enjoy a round at one of Southern Ohio's premier golf clubs with today's feature: $18 for 18 Holes with Cart and Range Balls at Raintree South Golf Club — Formerly Cooks Creek Golf Club — in Ashville near Columbus ($66 Value. Expires May 15, 2014.)
Raintree South Golf Club, formerly known as Cooks Creek Golf Club, is known as one of Ohio's premier upscale daily fee courses. Conveniently located just 25 minutes south of Columbus, Raintree South maintains a spacious layout marked by wide fairways, large swaths of glistening lakes and scenic views of the Scioto River. You'll be immersed in a challenging layout that demands creativity without sacrificing any of the course's gorgeous natural aesthetic.
The award-winning design was created by golf course architects Dr. Michael Hurdzan, former president of the ASGCA, and Dana Fry, former member of the Board of Governors. As a cornerstone of the legacy of their long-time partnership, Raintree South Golf Club is truly one-of-a-kind and has earned a formidable 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest. Such an achievement was only put within reach by the considerations of co-designer John Cook, the PGA Tour professional who contributed significantly in the placement of tees, shaping of bunkers, and the course flow.
Bordered by the Little Walnut Creek and the Scioto River, the 7,071-yard Raintree South Golf Club makes ambitious use of the available fresh water, incorporating it heavily into the layout on half its holes. For example, you'll start out on No. 1, the 552-yard par-5 that is bordered on both sides by water almost from tee to green — and this opening hole behemoth is only ranked as the 5th most difficult on the course.
Luckily, the expertise of the architects and the direct, knowledgeable input from John Cook has allowed Raintree South to maintain playability for golfers of all skill levels. Though the Black tees come with a difficult course/slope rating of 73.7/131, three additional tee locations allow players to scale the challenge more to their ability.
In addition to the exception on-course experience, you'll also find a fully stocked pro shop with everything you need to feel comfortable and confident on the course. With a wide selection on top brands like Titleist, FootJoy, Ashworth and more, there's something for every taste and caliber of player.
So if you're seeking the very best in Ohio golf, look no further than this opportunity to experience the extraordinary design at the serene and beautiful Raintree South Golf Club.
