Anything around Elyria or Lorain? Or is that a bit out of your usual range? I know there's not much south of there. There's the new Valley of the Eagles. It's Nicklaus design (not Jack himself, but his company)

We're definitely putting this one on the list, although it looks a bit easier that our (CIC) course (Arthur Hills loves bunkers).  https://www.valleyeagles.com/scorecard/. From the Blue's it's 6375 yds and a rating of 71.5/125. Ours from the similar yardage (whites) is 6275  and a slope rating of 70.7/133. Looks pretty in the pics.

Any of you guys get a chance to play before the Corona shut down? I got out twice, once to Shale Creek & Cossett Creek.

I didn't but only because it was too cold. Living by the lake we have a colder Spring but a warmer Fall.

Just got this from  TDGA 

From:        The Toledo District Golf Association

Date:         March 30, 2020

To:             Members of the TDGA Golfing Community

Subject:    COVID-19 Update 

Good Morning from the TDGA,

It's been a turbulent week for the golf industry not only in Ohio, but all over the world. As you probably know, on March 28, 2020 the Ohio Health Department mandated that all golf courses close. This message came to us just a day after Dr. Amy Akton indicated that it was OK to play golf. Then on March 29. 2020, the Health Department reversed itself and now says courses may open.

If you play, please follow social distancing practices as outlined in the Ohio Stay at Home order. Please do not gather around picnic tables or in the parking lot for post round get togethers. Please do your part to contain the spread of this very deadly disease.

A similar notice came around here. I guess on Wed & Thurs a lot of courses were not following the guidelines - guys hanging out drinking on patios, multiple riders to a cart etc. Gotta follow simple rules or everyone will be shut down. Golf and go home, it isn't that hard.

Have been playing roughly 1-2x a week. Lots of walking a no carts. It’s been a little bit of a joy to play with the raised cups. Hopefully everyone can follow the rules so we can continue to play. 
 

my big goal for this year is becoming more accurate with my drives off the tee, trying to get rid of the over the top swing!

 

playing airport greens tomorrow for a refresher. Madison and painesville country club I’ve heard are currently in great shape for the early rounds 

 

played manakiki 2 weeks ago. Decent shape for the weather but nothing spectacular

Our course has been open for 3 days and I've got 3 rounds in already. It's cart path only since the fairways are really soggy but I can live with that given we're playing much earlier than previous years.

Saturday's weather in NW Ohio was a bit weird. We had a 2:00 tee time and it started out sunny but by 4:00 it clouded over and the wind picked up. Glad I brought an extra jacket with me.

Oh man very opposite to our experience in Cleveland, had a 10am tee time pushed back a few minutes with frost delay, started off with a sweatshirt and underarmour and ditched both by the 4th hole for just a polo. Biggest mistake of the day was forgetting my sunscreen👎

I spent 4.5 hours doing yard work, so no, I wasn't able to enjoy the weather on a golf course. The good news is our yard is looking better at this point in the year than it has in a long time.

If you think Ohio has weird weather, come spend a spring season in the Rocky Mountains - check that - come anytime during the year 🙂.

Hey glad to see some new peeps in the thread!

I didn't play on Saturday, trying to avoid crowds, plus i've heard reports of a lot of places not following distancing guidelines. I went out after work yesterday and it was beautiful, basically had the place to myself.
