Blacklick Woods features two challenging courses and is rated one of the top ten most difficult public golf courses in Greater Columbus by Business First magazine.

Forty acres of the course’s 235 acres are natural area—a place where birds and birdies peacefully coexist. Audubon International has certified the golf courses as a Cooperative Sanctuary for their comprehensive environmental management and protection of wildlife habitats. Metro Parks has developed the courses with a long-range vision of protection and enhancement of the natural environment.

In addition to regular golf cart rentals, Metro Parks has two solo adaptive carts for rental by golfers who are physically challenged and can no longer play golf the conventional way. These carts allow you to play from tee to green without ever having to leave the cart.

As home to the First Tee of Central Ohio, Metro Parks has turned a 10-week summer program at Blacklick Woods Golf Course into a year-round outreach program. First Tee is an amazing program that teaches life skills and leadership through the game of golf to youth age 7 to 17. This past year more than 1,000 youth participated with us in this nationally recognized program.
