Right, I've played the blacks, but they're always 2 tee boxes up from the back. And there's a few holes where they either demolished the back tee or there is no back tee where they say there is one anymore. They have to set the course up to be much shorter than the states yardage for the simple fact of pace of play and sanity's sake. It was the same at Seneca this past week. They had most of the tees forward, and a set of purple tournament tees listed on the scorecard that weren't even out.

Yep, metroparks finished that restoration towards the end of last season. There's still some thin spots, but at least it's all green now

I don't mind Seneca at all myself except the pace of play sometimes gets to be too slow. But you get that at every public course in the area these days.

That happened to me last Saturday. We were fine on the front 9, just over 2 hours. Then, even though they have 36 holes, they sent 5 groups in a row down the Furnace Run 9. We were ok for a few holes, but it took over 2 hours to play the last 5.

I've only played Sleepy Hollow a handful of times. I really like the course, but have to be in the mood to get my ass kicked. Last time I played there I 4-putted the first green. Above the hole first putt, too soft with it, blew the second putt past and it rolled 20 feet by, two putts back up the hill.

I've never played any of the other metro courses. I need to change that.

Shawnee isn't great, but I like the rest. Big Met is kind of an odd set up, but it's less than 5 minutes from my house and designed by the same guy who did Sleepy.

I'm new to MGS this year, live in the Youngstown area and willing to drive and play several courses in Ohio or Western PA. Count me in and I can bring a guest along if needed.

Mill Creek & Firestone Farms I've heard are awesome. Are they worth the trip from Cuyahoga County?

Absolutely worth the trip. Mill Creek is a great public golf club with two 18 courses originally designed by Donald Ross. Tree lined, driving range, reasonably priced and great bar & grill. I haven't played Firestone in several years but it's a true links course with water and bunkers in play on several holes. Great clubhouse too.

Another nice course is Kensington in the Boardman/Poland, OH area. 

If you make your way to Y-Town, let me know we can play a round.

Forgot about Kensington, I've heard good things and like that architect's other area courses. Those are the ones I'd travel too. And Portage county has some of my favorite courses as an in between meetup.

I'll have to pass on this one. Too many projects on the list when I get back to Ohio. Looking forward to the next one. 

p.s. @MattF, wife and I have lessons with Randy on the 7th. Hopefully he can sort out my driver.

I have a crazy busy Spring, but I'm thinking of organizing something for Greater Cincinnati later this year. Depending on interest it will either be between Cincinnati and Columbus (maybe Majestic Springs, near Wilmington) or Northern Kentucky.
