Oxbow Golf Course

500 Saint Andrews Boulevard
Belpre, OH 45714


For nearly 40 years Oxbow has been a favorite of golfers in southeastern Ohio and northern West Virginia. Opened in 1973 by Ned H. Tanner, George Cowell, and Lloyd Cowell, this partnership operated the course until 2011 when the Tanner Family assumed ownership in order to continue offering wonderful golf in the Mid-Ohio Valley. This 6558 yard par-71 golf course was sculpted across rolling hills by architect Jack Kidwell, and presents a challenging golfing experience for players at all skill levels. In its uniquely beautiful natural setting, golfers encounter water hazards on nine holes that include four lakes and a tributary of the Little Hocking River. Large undulating Bent grass greens, lush, well-conditioned fairways and multi-level tees are hallmarks of Kidwell’s creative design. Jack Kidwell’s professional skills, personal philosophy, playing ability, and numerous achievements spanned 60 years and quietly touched countless lives in and around golf. He designed and renovated over 100 golf courses in the state of Ohio during a prolific 40 year architectural career. Oxbow, named for the U-shaped curve in the Little Hocking River, and its incorporation into the course layout is a great example of his genius.

Beginning in 2012, the Tanner family made major upgrades and renovations to the club. Refurbishing the greens, bunkers and fairways began in the winter. New course maintenance equipment has been necessary. And the interior of the clubhouse got spiffed up too, including new men’s lockers.
