Lion Hills Golf Club, previously a private course named Columbus Country Club, is now a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course. The course is located in Columbus, Mississippi.
The course was purchased out of bankruptcy by East Mississippi Community College. The purchase became official Novemeber 1, 2012. The Club dates to 1923. The course as we know it today dates to 1960 and was designed by John Frazier.
The front nine is very flat, fairly easy, and great to warm up on. The back nine is more challenging (understatedly), more scenic, very up and down. This course has enough variety of terrain to challenge the most seasoned veteran. There are large trees that can alter your shots, and water hazards come into play on a few holes. The signature hole is #8, a 407-yard, par 4, requiring an approach shot to an elevated green located at the base of a valley.
