Saunder’s Golf Course Particulars

Saunders Golf Course is located a little less than two miles from downtown Put-In-Bay on Catawba Ave and sits across the street from the South Bass Island State Park. Saunders also has cottages available for rent on the property. Both 2 and 3 bedroom cottage rentals are available by the week from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Every year they hold a golf tournament name the 5 Iron Classic. Keep an eye out for further information about this on the Put-in-Bay Events website. The pro shop also sells snacks, drinks, and cigarettes. Ice is also available to top off your cooler for the match!
