(about an hour)
It's like the Castle, but longer, more elevation and tougher.
Yeah Brant, heard great things about Idlewild, but probably won't have time this trip.

Just got Johnson Hills under my belt last week when we played 2 rounds Monday evening. I'll have to put my thoughts down as it's a pretty fun 9 hole course.

Wherever you go, you MUST stop at a Skyline and eat a coney on your first tee. Always ALWAYS carry an extra coney in case you run into a local. They will trade you a decent beer and show you around the course.

But, WHATEVER YOU DO, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT, show up at the course with that Gold Star crap.... Gold Star will get you a bottle of Zima and a whoopin'.

Nevermind. Looks like reviews are still disabled for this course, which is weird, because it's 2 years old already.

Those pics on here are 5 years old, when the course was new. That place looks a lot different now, in a good way. For one thing, there are now long and short concrete tees on every hole. When it opened, it was a mix of long and shorts and only a couple holes had multiple basket locations. Now there are multiple locations on nearly every hole. If you don't have a guide you may have to walk ahead on a few holes to locate them. Several blind holes on the course when playing longs.

Pete has it turned off until the back9 gets put in, I think. Which at the time was only supposed to be until the next spring but they had some NIMBY problems.

Show up with Camp Washington Chili, and you'll be given shots of bourbon.

North side Harbin is pretty fun but you’re going to have a lot of shorter, Park style courses. Monroe (I think) is also a fun course up that way, but same park style course. If you can, Mt Airy, Osage Grove, and of course Idlewild are your main big three and are going to be the ones to play. One of my regrets from last summer is not going out to play Osage! Dunham is a pretty fun course with a ton of elevation change, but if you’re driving from the North side Airy is going to be the main one to play.

I've played most of the 18-hole courses in Cincinnati. Definitely agree with Osage being one of the best, and you have to do Mt. Airy for sure. I like Harbin, it's close to work, so I play it more than the others.

Just last week, I met up with Sisyphus and played Williamsburg. It's a little further out east, but it's worth the effort. I'd say hit Osage and Williamsburg for a pretty fun day!

FWIW I was at Lincoln Ridge Saturday, and it was in amazing shape. They were clearing and laying mulch for the tournament this weekend.
