A typical Dick Wilson track from the late 1950s, the 18-hole layout at Coldstream Country Club ends with three long, demanding, heavily bunkered par fours.
Any visit to the area must be sure to head and play Camargo if the opportunity arises. Coldstream features a Dick Wilson design that reflects the design philosophy that existed at the time. The features are big -- with large greens and bunkers dotting the slightly rolling terrain.
The holes do not elicit any strong feeling of rapture -- it's just more of the same. If one were desiring a Wilson course to play head to nearby Dayton and play NCR / South. Coldstream is just dull because the hole differentiation is anything but inspiring.

Dick Wilson visited the greater Cincinnati area to develop the parkland track at Coldstream CC. The land is not terribly interesting with only a handful of standout holes. Each of the par 3s play over water which gets repetitive, especially given that the collection of short holes are of similar length. The most appealing aspect of the course is the movement in the par 4s, most of which are doglegs with well-positioned bunkering.
