Come out just east of Columbus to the Links at Echo Springs this fall season to see one of Golf Digest’s "Places to Play" and one of GolfStyle Ohio’s "100 Must-Play Courses of Ohio." Designed by Barry Serafin — a name associated with some of Greater Columbus' most-played tracks, a majority of which are links-style designs — the Links at Echo Spring represents a snapshot of golf in its purest form.
Prior to construction in 1995, Barry took a hard look at the natural lay of the Johnstown landscape, noting its rolling hills and water, and put together a masterful design that emphasized all the best it had to offer. The fairways track along natural undulations and offer the player an ideal landscape for an enjoyable round of golf at a shot-maker’s delight.
The Links at Echo Springs is a par-72 layout that spans over 6,875 yards from the tips with a course/slope rating of 72/128. This course has five different tee locations to cater any player of any skill level that wants simply to play the Great Old Game. Like any true links-style layout, you’ll have the ability to play bump-and-run golf and shape your shots into the rolling fairways for maximum distance off the tee. And of course you'll find plenty of bunkering to contend with. The greens are large and fast, and, accordingly, offer a course with a challenge equivalent to its beauty.
Be sure to warm up your swing at the practice facilities at Echo Springs, which include a full-length driving range. After warming up for your day on the course, stop into the pro shop for anything from tees and sleeves of balls, to clubs and apparel — whatever you need to feel able to play your best!
No matter whether you have family in Columbus or you're a student at Ohio State, don’t pass up on the excellent Barry Sarafin-designed links-style course at The Links at Echo Springs!
