Course Overview

This low-key 1926 Seth Raynor creation in suburban Cincinnati dishes out deep bunkers and huge, squared-off greens on a property laced with valleys and ravines. The standard quartet of Raynor template one-shot holes (Redan, Short, Biarritz and Eden) are here and rival his best set. Constant refinements continue, including to mow lines, but this course will never close for a splashy restoration. Why? Because the club has always been a good custodian of its course.

3 things to know

  • Hole everyone talks about

    No. 5, par-3, 179 yards: For a course known for having one of the best collections of par-3s in the world, the 5th (Eden) and 11th (Short) are perhaps the two most spectacular. At the 5th, a brutal left side bunker sits about 20 feet below the surface, while the bunker on the right wraps around the back of the green.
  • Best non-golf amenity

    Having lunch on the patio of the clubhouse is one of the most quaint and charming experiences in golf.
  • Insider tip

    If you’re lucky enough to get an invite to Camargo, don’t ask when, just make it work. Another opportunity may not come along again.
