Sugar lsle Golf Country was built in 1972 by renowned architect Jack Kidwell. It is an 18-hole par 72 public facility set upon gently rolling terrain. The course plays up to 6,754 yards, and features a combination of bent grass tees and greens with bluegrass fairways. Kidwell’s design brings water hazards into play on more than half of the course’s 18 holes, and showcases a total of 20 white sand bunkers. Several fairways are lined with mature trees. These obstacles blend with a degree of forgiveness to provide Sugar Isle with a layout that can offer a challenge to accomplished players, while still maintaining an accessibility to golfers of all ages and skill levels.
This facility, owned and operated by the Smart family since its inception, contains several amenities to enhance the golfer’s experience. These amenities include a pro shop, driving range, and putting green. There is also a Pavilion area that can accommodate up to 120 people that is free to use for groups hosting events at Sugar Isle.
For these reasons and countless others, Sugar Isle and its friendly and courteous staff, has been the right choice for Southern Ohio golfers for over 50 years serving as a home to area high school programs, numerous outings and tournaments, and more than one hundred members.
