Planning a trip to play Idlewild, Lincoln Ridge, Mt. Airy and Osage Grove with a King's Island stop as well. Any other must plays I'm missing?

How much time do you have? Those are the best courses but there are many others worth playing.
Gulley is north of KI and a fun course. Armco is new and on the level of the four you mentioned. Not far from KI also. Monroe is in that area, a fun 24 hole course.

Cabin Creek is a private course, you have to call before you go.

I haven't played Armco yet, but I agree with everything else JayDub said.

If you want to bag a good 9er, Mason Sports Complex north of Cincy, or South Fork in Florence, KY would be fun additions.

By that time in Oct. I'm thinking I should have Hidden Ridge back into playing shape if you want to venture a bit further south for a pretty new private course. Shooting to have it back fully mowed and trimmed before the end of Sept.

Mason Sports Park is also minutes from Kings Island so you could start your day with nine fun holes and still be at KI pretty early.

Not in my opinion. Tough course and not bad.
Belmont would be a good course to play.

Adding to what JayDub said about Handyman: I guess it depends on what you're looking for.

It's definitely a well-designed challenging course, but I thought it lacked fun factor. Glad I played it, but it was more of a beat down than a good time. I've played other courses that I thought were as challenging, but more "enjoyable."


Belmont makes for a "friendlier" round.

Hidden Ridge is looking pretty good right now. It's rugged for sure (mostly natural pads, still a few temp baskets, etc.), but if you enjoy secluded private courses feel free to hit me up.

That would be a fantastic way to start the day. One of my all time favorite 9 holers. South Fork Park in Florence, KY would be a fun 9'er to add if you wanted to bag an extra course between Idlewild and Lincoln Ridge.

I love Ace Handy Man its a great course if you lile woods. Some really fun shots. Belmont is fun but waaay overrated. Sycamore trails would be good or Armco Park if not too far out of your way
