NOGA Play Days (Cleveland, OH)

Recommended Posts

Are any of the NE Ohio spies thinking of taking advantage of these days? It'll run you $60 but you get on a country club, all you need is a USGA index.

 

I'm looking at Stonewater, Shaker Heights, Red Tail, and maybe Plum Brook.

That looks awesome and I would love to do it, but don't have an official GHIN - just my unofficial logging in The Grint. I would aim for Signature of Solon if I had the chance.

If you're a member of the local Grint club, then your handicap is GHIN compliant. You just need to print the card and you're away.

I worked at Signature for a brief time, it's a very different type of course with tons of environmental areas (they're not hazards). I didn't care for the layout, but it's something everyone should try.

Tbh I have a lot of bad juju with the course so please don't take my opinion about it.

Plum Brook is a very nice course - I play there at least a half doz times a year. Traditional parkland type setting.

Cool. I'm in the Cle west side burbs, so its under an hour away. Good to know it's worth the trip.

Definitely worth it. Drop off the family at Cedar Point and go play 18 there.
Also a public course off of route 2 in Huron is Thunderbird. North course has narrower tree lined fairways, south course is more wide open. Both have very challenging greens. Played the south course today. VERRRRY challenging greens.

Next week our group is going to Eagle Creek in Norwalk - never played there but the guys I play with are always talking it up.

I've played thunderbird south, I thought it was okay but that was over a decade ago. You will love Eagle Creek, that course is magnificent.

Not sure how it's changed over the past 10 years , however, I can tell you that north is more challenging with tight fairways. 

 

Given the choice between Plum brook and Thunderbird - I'll take Plum brook.

Played Eagle Creek today. It was DEFINITELY a primo public course and felt more like a private course.

Started out stinko but then it was cold and rainy. By the 5th hole I started to come alive - birdies all of the par 3's and a few pars on the 4's. I fell apart the 18th - but probably from lack of nourishment.

Much nicer than Thunderbird and similar but not quite as nice as Plum Brook. CIC is still a bit more challenging than either PB or EC.

Yea it's definitely at the top for what's available for the public in the area. Great birdies! Those aren't easy par 3s.

Thinking about it.  

Live in Solon right by Signature...haven't really met anyone that likes that course.  Very tight and target golf is what I always hear.  

Thinking about the Shaker Heights CC play-date. 

BTW....I'm in a Sunday group at Gleneagles in Twinsburg.  7am-ish standing tee time.  If you want to join, we're always looking for people to sub in for regulars (at least typically one opening/week).

When I was unemployed a couple years ago, I played Glen Eagles every Monday evening with a group of guys. I like that course. I may have to hit you up some Sunday.
