  1.   Wyncote Golf Club - Oxford, PA

    https://www.wyncote.com/

    A links style course in Oxford, PA near the PA / DE / MD border so about an hour from Philly and Baltimore areas.  It it very well maintained and IMO a great design with many tee options to match your ability.  Prine time green fees can be pricey but afternoon rates are reasonable.

  2.   Chaska Golf Course

    Very nice track.  Definitely long enough at 6600 from Whites but we have guys in our group that play from the Blues at 6,900 and Silver 5,800 and Gold at 5,200.  They recently added a combo arrangement (4 Silver, 5 white on each side) at 6,250.  There are trees and rough but the fairway is pretty generous.  Greens are pretty big and moderately fast with significant slope primarily back to front - which makes those down hillers a significant challenge if you are past the pin.  The traps were redone last year and this with new drainage and nice white sand.  There is some terrain variation but it is walkable (I walk it most of the time). Easy to get to, friendly staff.  Driving Range, Practice hole, and big putting green next to first tee.  Highly recommended.

  3.   Marks Par Three

    From their website:

    "Our locally-owned and operated executive style 18 hole course has been challenging experienced and beginning golfers for over 50 years. Since 1964, we've been providing a quality golf experience at affordable prices."

     

    This is a well-maintained, fun, short course. It's locally owned and operated. Some holes play pretty similarly; the challenge lies in their greens. If you hit it in the wrong place, a three putt isn't out of the question. Some greens are heavily sloped and lead to trouble if you miss your downhill putt. There are a couple par 4s that shake things up. The environment is well respected on the course; walking by the lake you'll hear fish and other wildlife jumping out of the water on occasion. The cost of the course is very reasonable. It's a really fun course to walk on; on some holes, it's actually easier to walk than ride. There is a wide range of golf courses in the area, but Marks acts as a solid place for both beginners who lack distance and more experienced players who want to be challenged by small, sloping greens.

  5.   Eagle Creek

    A super fun par 72 that is worth the drive from Cleveland. Course is always in fantastic condition and pace of play usually isn't an issue. A par 71 that stretches to 6600 from the tips, they have 5 tees that make the course playable for all skills. Some risk/reward holes, and all 5 par-3s give you different challenges. Even for a flat area of Ohio the course does have good roll to it. And it is built through a development, but the houses are generally far away from the course. Also walkable, they have Finn cycles, and the attached restaurant is supposed to be very good, but was closed last time I played. The architect is Brian Huntley, and while he may not be famous as other modern designers, he's built courses all over northern Ohio and they are all a blast to play.

  6.   Windmill Lakes

    An old school, straightforward parkland layout. Home of the Kent St. golf team and probably the best pro shop in Cleveland. The course stretches to almost 6900 from the back tees, making it a very long par 70. The course itself is usually in great shape, but it can be soft early in the season and it does not drain well after heavy rains. They have redone a lot of it and added french drains throughout the property to try and alleviate some of this. The layout doesn't trick anything up and all the trouble is visible from the tee. The course also has some of the biggest and most undulating greens in the area. It's always fun to play and easy to walk. Though it can be a bit of a tee time factory on the weekends. A bit of a country course, and a drive, but I think it is a must play for those visiting the area.

  7.   Forest Hills

    Par 70 run by the Lorain County Metroparks. The course has a lot of quirky holes due to the Black River cutting the property in half. Also there are trees that were planted too close to the tee box on about 4 holes that force you to work the ball a certain way. Course is usually in good shape when it's not wet. The river can come up and wash out all the holes that sit low around it. Greens are always in fantastic shape and roll well. It's barely 6300 from the tips, and the middle tees play <6,000 yards. The course is also super affordable as you can walk 18 for $20 on the weekends.

  10.   Tri-Mountain Golf Course

    As the name implies you can see three of the great Cascade Mountains peaks (err... kinda) from here.  Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens (no peak anymore), and Mt. Hood are all visible from this course.  6600 yds from the tips, you have 5 other tees to chose from. Tough (72.7/136) with lots of water it's just off of I-5, though you'd never know it.

  18.   Shale Creek

    A newer heathland style course and one of the top courses in Cleveland. The front 9 plays relatively straightforward and has some very long holes with several par 4s that top out over 450. The back 9 plays across the Rocky River and uses it to create some fun golf holes. Wide fairways and most greens have access to run the ball onto the surface. Also a relatively flat course, but there is a little bit of roll to it. Plenty of bunkers, with some lakes and creeks that come into play along with the river. The greens are nothing like anything else in Cleveland, as they are almost some kind of bermuda grass. Uphill putts are much slower than downhill/sidehill. Being one of the top courses also comes with being one of the most expensive at $70 on the weekend. Course is carts only as it is quite spread out through a development. 5 sets of tees, and one of the few courses that tops out over 7,000 yards. Though it plays much shorter due to all of the big doglegs.

  19.   Sleepy Hollow

    A Stanley Thompson design named one of the top 25 Munis in the US. This course is run by the Metroparks and is a flagship course of the Cleveland area. It's hosts the Cleveland Amateur every other year. The conditions are always fantastic, but the greens can be brutal. There is hardly a flat spot and there will often be break, even on your short putts. Do not be above the hole. The course is designed in an out and back routing that sees the first 4 holes on the front and 5 on the back play downhill, then the remaining holes turn around and come back up. #2 is probably the toughest par 3 in Cleveland, as it is 235 with a waste area all the way down the right and a two-tiered green. #3 is also a very tough par 4. If you are in the area this is a must play historic course. Stretches to 6800, but they rarely have the tees that far back.

  20.   Hideaway Hills

    A beautiful mountain course that has some amazing views. Lots of elevation changes, holes that require knowledge due to blind shots, and amazing views on a few holes. Par 5s are reachable yet can be though depending on wind. Par 4s vary in length and difficulty. Par 3s range from wedges to long irons. It is definitely not a walking course though it is a nice ride. The island green on the par 4 is probably the toughest hole due to the blind shot and if you are a long driver you will end up in the water. Overall a great course which is well maintained normally but they are upgrading bunkers currently.

    prices vary from $30 to $55 depending on when you play.

  21.   Willow Hollow

    A local public course which is cheap and it’s easy to walk to ride. I enjoy this course especially early in the season because it’s in great shape. The problem is as the year goes on some people stop fixing their pitch marks and the course becomes a little sloppy from the old un-fixed marks. This is nothing against the staff because they do their best to keep the course in nice condition. It’s not an overly long course but has some tricky holes and some decent elevation changes. There are also some very fun holes to play. It’s got quite a few par 3s that are similar distance but the elevation changes make you use different clubs. Worst part of the course is the bunkers but to be fair a lot of courses around this area have poor bunkers with a lot of tiny rocks. Staff is great and it’s a nice walk or ride without a ton of distance between most greens and tee boxes.

  22.   Boise Ranch Golf Course

    A nice but busy course.  For a public course it has more of a country club type feel to it with a giant wrap around porch seating area for dining, waiting, or just general tom foolery.  Nice driving range straight away from the club house, a dedicated putting green next to the first tee box, and a chipping and pitching green on the other side of the range.  Never been there when it wasn't at the very lease moderately busy.  As for the course, it is a straight forward course that doesn't require any local knowledge to play it decently, the fairways are easy to see with no hidden gotchas, the hazards are all within sight and good players will be able to stay out of trouble.

  23.   Springvale

    Affordable & well kept par 70 muni on the westside. Course is short as back tees are under 6100. Greens are on the small side with good undulation. Course is flat and easy to walk. All the distance is on the back with the longer of the 2 par 5s (515) and 4 par 4s over 400 yards. While the front is short, it seems like there is always a tree or bunker if you get off the fairway. A longer hitter could play a bunch of 5/6 irons off of tees and still have wedge into most holes. Par 3s are all different yardages, so that's a plus too. #11 is really the only tough hole on the course, and there are 2-3 driveable par 4s. Some visual tricks by having the fairways start about 100 yards off the tee, or end 40-60 yards before the green, makes the course look longer than it is. An ego builder for sure, but worth playing for locals or a quick round.

  25.   Palmetto Pine Country Club

    I have played this course occasional for the past 2 years. They have made a lot of improvements including new trees and new turf and course conditions were generally good. The only thing that was a little disappointing were the greens. The greens were always fast and firm and known as the best in the area. When we played, some were a little bumpy and most were furry and a little slow.
