Greenbelt Golf Course
Greenbelt golf course, previously Columbus Golf Club was established in the 1930’s. In 1974, Columbus Golf Club was turned over to the Parks Department through the encouragement of the City Golf Club Board and the golf community. In 1976, the course was renovated and redesigned by architect Pete Dye, ASGCA, and was renamed Greenbelt.
Owned and operated by the Columbus Parks & Recreation Department
Golf Pro/Manager: Keith VanDeventer, PGA Professional
Greens Superintendent: Aaron Brua, GCSAA
Lessons and Programs – One of the things we are most excited about with the Parks Department managing both Greenbelt and Par 3, is the ability for us to offer lessons, programs, events, outings, etc. at a lower price than a private golf course might be able to. Since we are always striving to fulfill the mission statement of our Department, we are confident that it will result in an increased variety of new opportunities available to the members of our community and to those traveling in to stay in Columbus and our County! Your Golf Pro will be available at both locations throughout the week and will be readily available to talk with you about any unique opportunities, in addition to those questions you might have for improving your personal game!
We would also like to ensure that all populations in the community have the opportunity to feel comfortable coming out and experiencing the great game of golf. The Parks Department along with your Golf Pro will be working very hard to create welcoming environments to anyone who would like the chance to learn how to play.
Pro Shop – We maintain a full-service Pro Shop in Greenbelt Clubhouse in hopes that it creates easy access for you to purchase items such as golf shirts, hats, gloves, golf balls, tees, clubs, and bags. If there is something not available in the Pro Shop, please speak with your Golf Pro to determine if we are able to get it in stock for you.
Concessions – We operate concessions during clubhouse hours of operation. You will be able to fuel up before you hit the links, while you’re taking a break before the second 9, or after you’ve finished with your rounds and would like to just enjoy the downtime in our clubhouse. We are now serving beer (and wine will be coming)! You will find amenities such as a TV and WiFi available for use in the clubhouse.
Driving Range – Greenbelt maintains a driving range and will have two sizes of baskets of balls available for purchase. Be sure to check out our range and lunch specials during the week!
Tee Times – During the golf season, we recommend booking a tee time (we make every effort to also accommodate walk-in’s). Please contact the Greenbelt Clubhouse to reserve a tee time, (812) 376-2684.
