    Golf Course Superintendent

    O’Bannon Creek Golf Club is a private golf club in Loveland Ohio, a northeast suburb of Cincinnati.   The club opened in the summer of 1976 and over the years has played host to numerous local, state, and regional events. It was developed by the Club’s original charter members and was designed by Dennis Acomb.

    The member-owned private club opened on July 17, 1976, with 280 members. Many improvements have been made to the golf course and other facilities throughout the years, including the construction of the current practice facility in 1994 and the current clubhouse in 1998.

    The Club’s name is taken from the many creeks and streams that meander through the course and empty into the O’Bannon Creek, which borders the property. The creek was named after Colonel John O’Bannon, a surveyor for George Washington’s land.


    The Club offers unparalleled facilities and amenities that include an 18-hole golf course.  In addition to the championship golf course, O’Bannon Creek offers its members and guests, a state-of-the-art practice facility. Golfers of all abilities can work on both their long and short game on one of the finest practice facilities in the area. Over an acre of bent grass teeing area is available for full shot practice. 

    After a round, or anytime, members enjoy delicious food in the cozy, relaxing atmosphere of the beautiful restaurant. Service options include dining in the casual Grill Room with recently enlarged and remodeled Bar, the more formal Dining Room or outside on the covered Veranda.

    Throughout the year, the Club hosts a variety of events for members of every age to enjoy - from themed dining events, to holiday celebrations and golf tournaments.

    The golf course is open year-round (weather permitting) with the formal golf season being April 1st through November 15th.    In season, the Club is open 7 days a week.  This position is a full time, year-round position.

His sensitivity to the existing environment resulted in Majestic Springs 220 acres of farmland becoming one of Ohio's most exciting courses, utilizing the famous links-style as defined by the natural features of the golf course.
