About Sharon Woods Golf Course

11355 SWING ROAD, CINCINNATI, OH 45241 | 513-769-4325

Sharon Woods Golf Course is the oldest of the seven golf courses operated by Great Parks of Hamilton County. Opened by legendary golfer Bobby Jones in 1938, the course has stood the test of time and offers something for everyone, including beginner 6-hole leagues, outings, instructional programs, family events and competitions. Known for being a tough test of golf, the layout features holes where birdies can be made, as well as holes that will test everything you have to make par. After your round, you can relax with a cold drink and a sandwich in the clubhouse or on the patio area that overlooks the #7 and #9 holes. Whether wanting to see if your game is up to the challenge or just wanting to relax and play with family or friends, Sharon Woods is the place for you!
About the Course
Sharon Woods is a par 70, playing to 6,633 yards from the back tees. With six sets of tees, players of all levels can enjoy the classic layout designed by William Diddle. Built on rolling terrain, players will need every club in the bag. The par 4 #3 has often been referred to as the toughest hole in the city, and the par 3 #8 features a majestic view as your ball travels downhill to the waiting green.

Golf Professionals
Tom Bach, Professional Tom was elected into membership of the PGA of America in 1994 and has been the Head Golf Professional at Sharon Woods since 1995. Tom, a graduate of Miami University, actively competes in the Southern Ohio PGA’s tournament schedule. Tom has been a member of the PGA of America’s President’s Council for promoting the game of golf since 2005. Tom was the 2008 recipient of the Greater Cincinnati Golf Coaches Association Award for supporting high school golf. In 2009, Tom was the recipient of the Southern Ohio PGA President’s Plaque Award for promoting growth of the game. In 2014, Tom was named Southern Ohio PGA Golf Professional of the year.

Tom believes that every golfer is different in their own ways. Once goals are established, a plan is developed to achieve the student’s goals in a very friendly, non-intimidating setting to promote a good learning environment.

Brian Fennen, Assistant Professional Brian Fennen, a PGA member, grew up and played locally at Lebanon High School. He graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degree in PGA Golf Management and Marketing. While in the program, Brian gained valuable teaching and business experiences through various high profile internships throughout the country. He most recently came from Kenwood Country Club where he was an Assistant Professional.

Brian believes without the mind, the body will never be able to hit a truly pure golf shot, no matter the club technology. Along with instilling a positive mindset, he believes it is his job as a golf professional to work as an artist to create and sculpt his students' swings into their own individual style. He believes fundamentals are important building blocks, but there is neither a cookie cutter swing nor teaching method for every golfer. Brian works in a low pressure, yet organized fashion designed to help a student achieve his or her goals.
