Back in January, I wrote an article about Powell being an favorite spot for people who like to live on or near a golf course. Well, Worthington has a couple courses worth noting as well, AND they are favorites for people buying homes. Even though these courses are much older … and the surrounding homes are older … they are still very popular with local residents.
The Worthington Hills community and Worthington Hills country club are located just north of I-270, off Rt 315. “The Hills”, as it is often referred to, consists of homes built in the late 60’s to early 70’s. The main street, Clubview Blvd, circles the golf course. The actual country club facilities are located back a scenic drive off Clubview Blvd. One exclusive street, called The Circle on the Green is an “island” within the golf course.
The clubhouse style is in keeping with “typical” Worthington architecture. The newly opened fitness facility is an “L” attachment to the main clubhouse.
On the opposite side of the parking area is the swimming pool and daycare facilities, with the tennis courts to the side. After a hot game of tennis, the members can jump in the pool for a cool-down.
Another golf community to the west of Worthington is Brookside Country Club and Golf Course. This course and community is located west of Olentangy River Rd, between Rt 161 and Snouffer Rd. The entrance from Rt 161 is stunning with a serene pond to the left of a bridged drive. Large trees are prevalent along the golf course, no doubt claiming their fair share of errant balls and ruining chances for a par hole.
On the warm summer day that I was there to take these photos, there were many golfers … as if there was some type of club tournament being played. The clubhouse sits in front of the pool facilities and tennis courts.
If you’re interested in buying a home in one of these communities, give me a call.
