Overview
More
Recently ranked as the #4 public course in Ohio by the reviewers at Golf Advisor. com, this beautiful championship golf course opened in 1972 and has hosted some of the most prestigious golf tournaments in Ohio. Open from April 1 through early November, Apple Valley rolls over a gentle terrain crossing ponds and through wooded areas has a reputation for having some of the finest, smoothest, fastest greens anywhere. The overall condition of the course is always top notch and Golf Digest has given Apple Valley its prestigious 4-Star Rating. Simply one of Ohio's 'Must-Play' golf courses.

Played Apple Valley Golf Course on this past Tuesday and the cost for this was $29 US for 18 with cart. This course is in great shape and a steal for the price.

I have been golfing here for 20+ years. It is one of the best maintained executive golf courses I have played. Very well groomed and maintained. Plus it is a reasonably priced. Very picturesque with changing terrain. Will not disappoint.

Hi Keith, I was checking out our latest Trip Advisor reviews and I see you posted a rather negative one. Unforturnately, I believe you posted it to the wrong Apple Valley Golf Course. Ours is in Ohio. If I'm right about this, can you please...More

The lake and its beaches and amenities are indeed private for land owners only but the golf course is public and anyone can play it.
