A first suburb of Greater Cincinnati, the Village of Golf Manor was incorporated in 1947, prior to that a part of Columbia Township. 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 and service departments. The Village is served by the Little Miami Joint Fire and Rescue District for fire and emergency medical services.
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 Country Club. The neighborhood is built on an oasis of rich farmland where wild roses and honeysuckle gave way to streets named after many of the founding families, including Wiehe, Stover, Hammel, Pieper, Kellerman, and Engle (Englewood).
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!”
