Our golf course, founded in 1902, was designed by the famous architect, Tom Bendelow - revered as the "Johnny Appleseed of American Golf". Bent grass tees, fairways, and greens greet the players and are always kept in pristine condition by our Club Superintendent, Tom Judd. The course plays longer than its posted length due to our rolling hills and doglegs that the golfer encounters. The green complexes are very small and are a challenge to hit. Once on the greens, the golfer's skill must really rise to the surface, as most are sloped from back to front, some severely so. With green speeds an average of 10-11 on the Stimpmeter, putting becomes an artform. The course still stands the test of time and was even chosen to be in the rotation for the prestigious Cincinnati Metropolitan Championship. As recently as June 2008, there were 223 Met rounds played, with only 1 player breaking par for their round. This is a great testament to the challenge that awaits the golfer at Losantiville Country Club.
Losantiville is justifiably proud of our support of the Evans Scholar program - every year since its inception in 1930, LCC has been thrilled to see at least one of our caddies awarded this prestigious 'full-ride' scholarship.

Losantiville is a preferred destination for numerous charitable, civic & corporate organizations which enjoy the combination of great food, service, golf and value!
