Course Infomation

Located in the North end of Willoughby only a mile and a half from State Route 2, Lost Nation Golf Course is a 6500 acre, 18-hole golf course with driving range, putting green, pro shop and snack bar.

Designed by H.S. Colt and Harry Allison, the course features a challenging layout with that will test golfers of all abilities. The front nine features two par 5s and one of the best Par 3s in the area. The back nine features the famed 15th hole that is arguably the hardest Par 4 in the area. The back nine features 5 holes where water comes into play.

In 2014, the finishing touches of over $5 million in renovations and updates were completed including improvements to drainage and irrigation and the rebuilding and redesign of two Par 5s. Lost Nation also secured a federal grant to restore severely eroded stream banks along Ward’s Creek, which runs through the back nine. This grant also assisted in creating wildlife habitat both in and out of the water and a buffer area to reduce sediment runoff into the waterway.
