Golf Course Information
The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI) in Wooster has long had a reputation for one of the best turfgrass management programs in the country, with graduates working at country clubs and professional sports arenas all over the world to prove it.
But there was one thing the program lacked: its own golf course. That deficiency no longer exists, however, thanks to the generous gift of the Hawkins family, which donated Hawk's Nest Golf Club in Creston to Ohio State ATI in 2007. The gift, worth $4.6 million, is the largest in ATI's history.
The public course was founded by Earl and Betty Hawkins of Wooster. The first nine holes opened in July 1993 and the second nine in May 1994. A mere two years later, Golf Digest ranked Hawks Nest among the top 5 public-access courses in Ohio. Golf Digest's "Best Places to Play 2006-2007" awarded Hawks Nest a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, placing it among North America's 201 best public-access courses. Only 16 courses, including legendary courses such as Pebble Beach and Pinehurst #2, achieved all 5 stars. Ohio Magazine has rated the course among the 10 best public courses in the state.
