This facility has an eighteen hole mid-length course and three nine hole courses that are played in eighteen hole combinations. The Bruin Mid-Length Course is a designed short course, which allows golfers to play a Nicklaus course at a very reasonable green fee. It is an easy course to walk. The Grizzly Course consists of three nine hole courses, the first eighteen of which designed in 1971 by Jack Nicklaus and opened in July, 1972. The Grizzly name is derived from Nicklaus' nickname, "The Golden Bear." These courses are characterized by long multi-curved fairways with large trees retained as natural hazards, as well as numerous water hazards and bunkers. The first professional tournament was held here in 1973. It was the PGA Tour's Ohio Kings Island Open. The event was won by course designer Jack Nicklaus, who, in the third round, shot a course record 62, a mark that remains unmatched. Since 1972, the Grizzly has hosted all three professional tours, boasting twelve major championships on the LPGA Tour. The Grizzly is currently the home of the Senior PGA Tour's Kroger Senior Classic, presented by FirStar, an event held annually since 1990.
