Our History

Opening in June of 2004 and only a stone’s throw from the Legendary Columbus Zoo & Aquarium in Powell, Ohio, Kinsale was built for the true “country club” enthusiast who craved for that attention to detail and luxurious lifestyle, while making sure it was fun for the whole family! Kinsale Golf and Fitness Club was built to accommodate a twelve-hundred home development, Golf Village as well as the surrounding Powell, Ohio area. The vision for Kinsale was to offer a full family resort style environment for mom, dad and children of all ages. The design was perfect; provide a world-class Arthur Hills Golf Course, throw in a huge amount of amenities, while still keeping it affordable and realistic.

When you join Kinsale, you are becoming a member of a special community of central Ohioans. A destination that becomes your lifestyle... your identity. Quite possibly, some of your new lifelong friends will come from Kinsale. Our members are a diverse group of business and community leaders in Central Ohio. We strive to make our Clubs a true community of close friends where everyone, always, feels welcome. This is a great way to meet new people who share your values and have a great passion for golf, fitness, lifestyle and family.

Kinsale’s centerpiece is its 18-hole mastercourse, designed by world renowned architect, Arthur Hills. As you play the course you will see generous moving fairways, lush rough and well protected greens, all maintained by central Ohio’s largest irrigational system. The course is one of beauty, offering challenges to those scratch golfers... yet forgiving to those less seasoned hitters.

While you’re shooting your round with the boys, she’s well taken care of - the Spa at Kinsale features whirlpool tubs, saunas, and steam rooms, along with a relaxing, peaceful lounge that has a fireplace. Facials, waxing and massage services are available. The private showers and changing areas feature Prive products and are stocked with all the toiletries she will need to pamper herself. By the time you are taking your clubs off of the cart, she will be leaving her treatment, loving life, happy, relaxed and ready to meet you in The Grille Room for dinner.

The Cork Room is always a hub of activity designed to be casually elegant, yet intimate and inviting. It is used for our many social events such as Wine Tastings, Gingerbread House Building and the Holiday Brunch.

As you and your spouse are completely loving the choice you made with Kinsale... its family time! Kinsale has three heated outdoor swimming pools that offer a double twisting slide with a separate landing area, a raindrop waterfall located in the play area, a gated baby pool for those under age four, an eight lane pool with a one meter diving board, a 3 meter high dive and a zero entry section with enough shade to keep the sun off our youngest members while they play and swim.

To stay in shape, our fitness facility features Bio-mechanically fitted Cybex Eagle NT resistance machines and dumbbells up to 100 pounds. We offer personal trainers, for private, semi-private and small group instructions. We also offer Group Fitness Classes including spinning, step, yoga and pilates and Les Mills Body pump.

And that just names a few of the Amenities... don’t forgot about the Tennis, the Pro Shop or even “The Kids Club” that offers members two free hours of service daily while Mom and Dad workout, dine, or just hit the Sauna.

There is no debate that Kinsale was built for your entire family, providing rest from the day to day challenges they face. A Country Club that you can build your family’s lifestyle around, developing new friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
