Springvale Golf Club -- A diamond still a little rough
Review by: Golf Nut Springvale is a course that has been in a transition stage for what seems like forever. Going from a family owned to a now city run course has taken time but has proven to be worth the wait. Improvements on the course layout, irrigation and drainage systems as well as adding an all new clubhouse make for a very pleasurable golfing experience. The practice range, which butts up against the backyard of a privately own home, is okay as long as you planned to practice your short irons (7 through wedge). The putting green is adequate. The actual course is an older design, i.e. meaning they managed to fit a 18 hole course on a 14 hole layout, but it has been spruced up a bit in recent years. A note of advise for low handicap golfers, play it from the tips to have the most fun. There are several Par 4 holes located on the course that can easily be hit in 1. The Par 5, 515 yard 11th hole dubbed "The Monster" can be tamed with a good drive and a decent middle iron. The 16th hole significantly challenging hole on the course if you're not prone to hit the ball straight but otherwise, keeping a decent drive in play should produce high 60's low 70's score pretty much every time.

Bellwood Country Club -- Consistent Play In A Comfortable Setting
Review by: Larry Redwine Bel-Wood Country Club is nestled in a woodsy remote area northeast of Cincinnati just minutes away from Kings Island Amusement Park and The Beach Water Park. An affordable private club, Bel-Wood has plush fairways, playable rough, properly maintained traps and consistent greens. The front nine is longer than the back and makes walking realistic for the 50+ crowd (par 36). The back nine is more hilly, but shorter (par 34). There is avoidable trouble on most holes, with a risk-reward factor on a few. Water can come into play on 6 holes. Like nearby Golf Center at Kings Island, this course says: "You get what you see". The top handicap holes add the dimension of a degree of tightness with distance. Par threes are beatable for an above average golfer, while the par fives are relatively long or play steeply uphill. The courses signature hole lies in the midst of scenic beauty with an obvious risk/reward challenge. The staff is warm and accommodating. The food is typically tasty and affordable. This course is well worth a look. I came away anxious to go back SOON.
