Golf History

History of Reid Golf Course

We are fortunate to have two 18-hole courses at the Reid Park Golf facility. The course rules are listed below and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (937)324-7725.

 

COURSE RULES

Dress Code

  • Proper golf attire includes shirt, shorts/pants/skirt, and shoes at all times.

Soft Spikes

  • We are a soft-spike facility.  No metal spikes are allowed anywhere on the premises.

Outside Food and Beverage

  • Guests may not bring outside food or beverage into the facility or onto the courses. State Law prohibits any and all outside alcohol brought onto the property.

Registration

  • All players must register in the pro shop prior to beginning play.

National Trail Parks and Recreation District reserves the right to deny or revoke the playing privileges of anyone not conforming to posted regulations.

 

SOUTH COURSE

The South Course is fairly open, allowing for the occasional errant shot without penalizing the player too much. Set on gently rolling terrain, the South is a favorite for golfers who like to walk while playing. The course also features four different sets of tees to better fit players of all levels. If you have never played here before, please take note of the water on holes #11 and #14. Number 11 requires a tee shot played to the left center of the fairway that finishes no more than 230 to 240 yards from the tee. A pond awaits longer tee shots. Number 14 can be a great opportunity for a risk/reward. The safe play is to the fairway, short of the pond. Bigger hitters can attempt the 280+ yard carry necessary to drive the green. Be careful though, over the back can be dangerous!

 

NORTH COURSE

The North Course is our championship course. It has hosted several Public Links Qualifiers and was the site for the 1982 NCAA Division III Golf Championships. Featuring lots of elevation changes and numerous chances to get into or stay out of trouble; the North rewards all players with golf in a very natural setting. If you have never played here before, take note of the water on #1 and #9. The smart play on each hole will definitely help your score. Number 1 requires a tee shot in the right center area of the fairway, no more than 270 yards, to be safe. Number 9 also gets easier with a shot played to the right center, usually no longer than 230 yards. The back nine is tough, try to be ready as you make the turn!
