Designed by Ohio Architect Dr. Michael Hurdzan, EagleSticks Golf Club is a 6,500-yard, par 70 course that challenges players of all skill levels with frequent elevation changes that reward accuracy over power. Golfers can warm up swings and cranky drivers on the range before conquering the 18-hole monolith. On the course’s par 5, 591-yard 11th hole, a creek splits the fairway about halfway to the green, where fish gobble errant golf balls after confusing them for oxygen bubbles. In all, golfers rove across 150 acres of hilly farmland in handy golf carts, admiring a patchwork of oak, maple, and cherry trees while avoiding the course’s 90 sand bunkers. Most tee boxes summon patrons up to high vantage points, granting sweeping views of the vibrant landscape.
After the round, course patrons retire to Mac’s Sportsbar to quell belly rumblings with menu offerings of classic American fare such as burgers, sandwiches, and nachos. Eight televisions beckon sports spectatorship and an adjoining outdoor patio facilitates summertime relaxation or competitions to hurl range balls into the moon’s orbit.

EagleSticks Golf Club
When the morning fog clears, a bridge fashioned out of five rustic corncribs appears to pay homage to EagleSticks Golf Club's roots. Originally used to feed the horses that grazed on the erstwhile farm, the wood from the corncribs now arches over a creek that splits the fairway on the 11th hole—a 591-yard par 5 dubbed the course's signature attraction for its bending fairway, elevated tee box, and visible ties to a bucolic past. Designed by renowned Ohio architect Dr. Michael Hurdzan, the 6,508-yard course challenges golfers with constant elevation changes—some of which exceed 100 feet—that demand accuracy, sound course management, and the ability to activate the cart's hang-gliding wings. Throughout the round, bentgrass fairways and greens present a much more hospitable landing place than the course's thick, bluegrass rough. At various hillcrests and elevated tees, players can take in a full view of the course's scenery, which includes several waterfalls and woodlands populated by oak, maple, ash, locust, and cherry trees ripe for the hugging.
After a day on the links, golfers can gather at Mac's Sports Bar to quiet rumbling bellies with a menu of classic American food such as burgers, sandwiches, and pizza. Guests can unwind in Mac's dining room—which features eight televisions, an open-beam ceiling, and other contemporary touches—or at the adjoining patio, which attracts summertime breezes and ghostly golf balls trying to reconnect with their long-lost owner.
