Miamisburg is home to PipeStone Golf Club.
Designed by legendary designer Arthur Hill, PipeStone’s golf course is visually stunning and challenging.
There are dozens of hills and over 100 feet of elevation changes that will challenge your game and golf knowledge before you make it to the greens, which their website claims are “the best greens in the Miami Valley.”
PipeStone is also home to the 1818 grill, which overlooks the 18th hole and is available to host banquets, weddings, and other events.

Homestead is a beginner-friendly course located in Tipp City. They offer an affordable daily pricing schedule as well as several membership options. Their facility does not include any amenities.
The course is best described as simple and relatively flat. It is surrounded on all sides by lots of open space which gives it a very inviting and vast feel. The website includes a virtual walk-through of the course with descriptions from the club.
Cassel Hills is a unique course that is advertised as two separate nines with distinct characteristics. The front nine is flat while the back nine has many more hills.
Each nine also has very large greens which emphasize the lag putting game, adding a unique dimension to the game at Cassel Hills.
