Perched high atop the rugged terrain of rural southeast Ohio, the scenic resort golf course at Salt Fork State Park is a destination worth taking the clubs to. With its rolling fairways and expansive greens, the 18-hole championship course will challenge even the most experienced golfer.
The par 71 course spans 250 acres of forested hills, open meadows and misty valleys of Guernsey County. Measuring only 6,056 yards from the white tees, the course plays considerably longer than expected because of the numerous uphill approach shots.
Golfers can also enjoy the course’s pro shop, snack bar, driving range and putting green. Tee times are recommended, and a picnic pavilion can be reserved for group outings.
The golf course is located within Ohio’s largest state park, which boasts recreational facilities that suit nearly every taste. The adjacent Salt Fork Resort & Conference Center offers several overnight specials for golfers. The lodge, which overlooks the scenic Salt Fork Lake, features 148 cozy guest rooms as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a dining room, swimming beach, and boat launching and docking facilities.
