The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium owns and operates Safari Golf Club, an 18-hole, 140-acre, mature course located adjacent to the Zoo. World Famous Golf Course Architect Michael Hurdzan completed construction on FIVE NEW HOLES at Safari Golf Club. Benefits of our new renovations: Golf course balance (par 36-36 on both sides). New yardage will play over 6850 yards from championship tees. We have reduced distance from greens to next tees which will improve pace of play by 30 minutes per round. In addition to our new holes all of the cart paths at Safari are now paved!
