Tom Bendelow made a swing through Ohio during his run as one of America’s most prevalent producers of golf courses, and in time, many of those courses were retouched or totally revamped by Donald Ross. Some clubs are more eager to feature the latter’s name on the marquee, but Maketewah is happy to share the name of both architects in its heritage.

Like many designs in Ohio (from either architect) the property is defined by various ravines running across the property. One such ravine is the defining feature on a rather irregular closing hole. The final hole is a short (140 yards) par three, that must cross a deep ravine to reach a large green. Although the target is not particularly tough to find, front pin placements are guarded by both a long slope to the bottom, as well as a large bunker...certainly an example where a par three closer is no nuisance for the purpose of matchplay. Crumpled fairways will be the order of the day for much of the round.

The club is also home to the Francis Xavier Homan Golf Center, the headquarters for both the men's and women's teams representing nearby Xavier University.
