Oak Haven Golf Course in Delaware, Ohio

I've been so busy doing nothing that time got away from me this week. Obviously we didn't play Oak Haven Golf Course this week since we're currently in Port Clinton, Ohio. Today we're playing at Oak Harbor Golf Course. And we're going to have a gorgeous late summer day to do so.

Oak Haven is located north of Delaware on US 23, about two miles south of the Delaware State Park. It's situated on rolling farmland, but the back nine has plenty of trees and some narrow fairways that will challenge those who can't hit their ball straight at times. (Hi, Denny!) There are a couple of tiered greens to make your putts interesting, as well as a few that are sloped or have tricky reads.

The golf course is very well maintained and is in terrific condition considering the severe lack of rain this summer. The course provides five sets of tees so if you're feeling porky you can make this course a long one at 7054 yards or much shorter at the seniors's tees of 5106 yards (or the ladies' tees of 4704 yards). The most challenging hole is the 11th hole, which is all water carry. If you play the black tees, like Denny, you will face a 245 yard carry over the pond to the green. This one is intimidating, to say the least!

As seniors, we get a price break. Monday through Friday you'll pay $25 to play 18 holes using a riding cart. They also had a Twilight special going on that for $25 you can play all the golf you want, which is a bargain if you play quickly in this time of waning daylight hours.

This is a golf course we want to play again.

I have only golfed a couple of times but this course looks lovely. And the price certainly sounds reasonable. Gotta love those senior's discounts. :-)
