161 N State Route 310
Pataskala, OH 43062, United States

This Jack Kidwell design opened in 1964 and is located some distance northeast of Columbus. The first nine is fairly target-oriented, while the club advertises the 13th as one of the toughest par-4s in the state. The standard walking rates are $15 on weekdays, $20 on weekends (carts are $12).

Willow Run is not a member of the Ohio Golf Association or the Columbus District Golf Association, so their course has no valid slope-and-ratings data.

The club's mailing address is:
PO Box 234
Reynoldsburg OH 43068-0234

Great course for the price! Some great challenging holes. Hard to find a better overall value!

I've played Willows about 20 times (close to work in Redmond) but had a string of bad experiences recently. Most people know Willows Run courses play S-L-O-W. I usually play Eagle's Talon and I've had 6+ hour rounds. Apparently Double_J thinks that is not a big deal but when it plays slower than Bellevue Muni, it makes you wonder what the management's priority is.

Second, their rangers are ineffective and unusually rude for a level of course where you expect to be treated with common courtesy. One ranger is specific was completely rude, demanding and yelling at my foursome to play faster when the foursome behind us complained. This was on Saturday afternoon when Willows is known for 6 hour rounds: Our group could have played left handed and still keep up with the slow moving groups ahead of us.

I told the ranger he better back off and donGÇÖt grandstand just to satisfy a group that complained the loudest and told him Willow's GC rangers don't know how to keep the rounds to less than 5 hours (wouldnGÇÖt that be nice.)

Anyhow, the ranger got in my face like he was duke it out. Simply, proof was in the pudding: That round took almost 6 hours to finish even with my GÇ£slowGÇ¥ group waiting 5~10 minutes to before hitting every shot.

After finishing the round, I complained to the assistant pro who was working the counter at the pro shop to post a complaint against the ranger. The pro looked at me and said tersely, "You can't play 4 hour rounds here on weekends." Letters to the pro and the management has never been responded. So much for a GÇ£championship caliber golf course complex.GÇ¥

There are plenty of other courses (Oki courses in particular) that are managed well and affords golfers enjoyable time. My foursome will no longer play Willows Run.
