Golf

Winding through mature trees, streams and lakes, Walden’s pristine golf course offers vistas that enhance the golfing experience. One of Ohio’s most prestigious courses, Walden is a par 72 stretching to 7,203 yards, with a 139 slope and a 75.2 rating. It was redesigned and renovated by Craig Schreiner in the fall of 2001.

Walden offers a great opportunity for game improvement. You can practice your full swings on the driving range, improve your putting touch on any of the three practice putting greens, and hone your short game skills on our short range, which features chipping, bunker, and 100-yards and closer. Or you can relax in a rocking chair while being served a cocktail at the back of the driving range and contemplate what to enjoy next at Walden.
