Harmon Golf Course

Harmon Golf Course is a 9 hole, public golf course located in Lebanon, Ohio. However, due to the demand of 18 hole course, each hole has two sets of tee areas, allowing play as if 18 holes existed.
In 1912, William Elmer Harmon gave the city of Lebanon an 88 acre tract of land, to be used as a park. Some of this land was set aside to be used as a public golf course. The original course had 5 holes, none of which exist today as they did originally. In 1920, the course was redesigned as a 9 hole course. The original as well as the later architect of the course are unknown.
Course Details
Harmon is a 9 hole, par 36 course. Its yardage is 3,121. Its rating is 70, while its slope is 121. While the yardage is relatively short, the course is noted for incredibly small, fast greens, and tight, narrow doglegs. The trees on the course are mature and close together. The bunkers are deep, but placed strategically. There are 2 par 3 holes, 2 par 5's, and 5 par 4's. There is no driving range, but there is a practice green. The clubhouse features a large patio area with a grill, as well as drinks and snacks.
Hole Details
The first hole is a par 4 with bunkers guarding the left of the green. Hole 3 is a par 3. There is a dense woods all along the left side, as well as to the right of the hole. Errand shots will be lost. The 4th hole is a par 4. The tee shot is blind to a narrow, sharp dogleg left. Another long fairway wood leads to a well guarded hole. The 8th hole is an extreme uphill teeshot. The second shot is blind over a gully to a very small green. Finally, the 9th hole plays to a small green directly in front of the clubhouse. Too little club places you in "Charlie's Bunker," while too much puts you into the clubhouse. There is no water at Harmon.
The course is owned by Southwestern Golf. The club pro is Kevin O'Sullivan, who is also the owner. The superintendent is Dick James.
