Private vs. Public Course

While all the golf courses on the list in Delaware County are private, that doesn’t mean the list was entirely private. The list was dominated by private and semi-private courses with only six public courses making the list. The Players Club at Foxfire in Commercial Point, Ohio, is the top-ranked public course in fourth place, and Lancaster Golf Club in Lancaster, Ohio, was the4 only other one to break the top 10.
