WELCOME TO OUR GREAT VILLAGE
A first suburb of Greater Cincinnati, the Village of Golf Manor was incorporated in 1947, built on an oasis of rich farmland, wild roses and honeysuckle that gave way to streets named after many of the founding families, including Wiehe, Stover, Hammel, Pieper, Kellerman, and Engle (Englewood).
Cradling the northwest corner of Losantiville Country Club, Golf Manor was so named because of its proximity to several historic golf courses, including Maketewah , Avon Fields and the former Crest Hills.
Just over one-half square mile in size, approximately 3,600 residents (~1,600 households, 897 families, 1,800 housing units) call Golf Manor home and enjoy the benefits of our own professional police, fire, emergency medical and service departments.
The heart of our business district is home to the oldest Orthodox Jewish synagogue in Greater Cincinnati and diverse educational opportunities. Along Stover Avenue you may pass the original Wiehe family farmhouse built in 1862. Gems of the Village’s past and present are scattered throughout the neighborhood. For example, Chuck Harmon Way is a neighborhood street named for our own long-time resident Chuck Harmon, the first African-American to play ball for the Cincinnati Reds.
We’re proud of our green spaces including two vibrant parks: Volunteer Park, a family-oriented recreation spot for families and friends, located on Wiehe Road across from the municipal building. Volunteer Park is the home of Chuck Harmon Field, a recreational baseball field built in cooperation with the Cincinnati Reds. The Dennis Puthoff Memorial & Veterans Park on Losantiville Avenue was built more recently as a tribute to a respected long-time mayor and the many residents of our Village that have served their country honorably in the U.S. military. It’s a great place for quiet times, remembrance and people watching. It also houses our own community garden.
We’re excited you have decided to visit our “Great Village!”
Important News About Village Income Tax Collection in 2019
Starting July 1, 2018, the Village of Golf Manor will partner with other Ohio municipalities and participate in a shared income tax service known as RITA, the Regional Income Tax Agency.

All residents will be required to file a tax return (or a valid exemption certificate) with RITA by April 15th (excluding holidays) each year beginning in April 2019.
Once the transition to RITA is effective in July 2018 you will be able to register, obtain forms, file a return, make payments, and view Frequently Asked Questions on the RITA website at www.ritaohio.com.

RITA was formed in 1971 to administer the income tax ordinances for Ohio municipalities (city or village) that join the agency. Currently over 320 taxing jurisdictions (approximately 45% of Ohio municipalities with an income tax) utilize RITA to handle their municipal income tax collection and enforcement efforts. Locally Addyston, Arlington Heights, Bethel, Elmwood Place, Greenhills, Lockland, Loveland, Milford, Mt. Healthy, Newtown, and Silverton, to name a few, participate in RITA.
