Theyre all nice courses.  I tend to play the munis because they are affordable but even those are still pretty immaculate.

Winding Hollow is a nice course, out off 161 about 10 minutes east of columbus on the north side.

Are you looking at public or private courses?

A public Ross design in the area is Granville Golf Course. Scioto CC is Ross but private. The Golf Club by Dye is private and from what I know, hard to get on without a member. Longaberger Golf Club is public and is by Art Hills. I've played Eaglesticks in Zanesville which is a fine track. It's about an hour east of Columbus. If you can get on the tOSU courses which are private (you can play with a member) the Scarlet course is supposed to be great.

I know I'm playing a place called riviera. But I'm looking for a nicer high end course to take my uncle and cousin.. And I know of Granville but I'm looking for any public course that is very well maintained or private courses I can get on without a member

My Father lives in Newark, and I grew up in Zanesville, Ohio.

Granville is a great course... I played there in several high school golf matches/tournaments and throughout my childhood with my Father.

Eaglesticks is another stellar course.  It is actually where I really took up the game and became more serious with it at the age of 13.  My Stepfather was the controller for the family that owns the course and I worked there all through high school.

Longaberger is very well taken care of.  And very affordable.

My Father was just telling me about a pretty interesting course that used to be private, but went publich back in 2007 in Columbus called Tartan Fields East - then renamed to Winding Hollow in 2011.  I've never played it though....  But my Father said it is fantastic.

Looks like saevel25 already mentioned it.  I'll have to check this place out the next time I go back to Ohio.  Looks nice!

I play a ton up in Akron/Cleveland, and while I have yet to play the Quarry in Canton, Longaberger blows Little Mountain, Stonewater, Shale Creek, and Fowlers Mill out of the water.   Winding Hollow is a great track with some serious rough and is great if you don't like playing through neighborhoods.  Foxfire Players Club and Cooks Creek are probably 2a and 2b on my list.  Cooks Creek is in a bit better condition, but Players Club is probably the most well designed (public) course in central Ohio with exception to Longaberger.  If you're looking for something akin to Sleepy Hollow, I would check out Champions.

Crooks Creek is a nasty course man. Its about a good 30 minutes south of columbus. I think i lost 7 golf balls that day :p. Luckily when i wasn't loosing golf balls i was hitting the ball with pin point accuracy and putting well, shot about an 85 :p

Longaberger is way to expensive. I think its finally back under 100 dollars a round now.

If you want a good trek, check out Eagle Sticks in Zainesville. I think its about an hour east of columbus, maybe hour and a half. I hear that is an awesome course.

As for NE ohio, The Quarry is the best course i've seen in a long time. I think its getting a bit to pricey. They had issues with getting people to buy up the residential lots around the course, so i think there trying to cut the loss by increase green's fees :(

    • do we really need fancy putters
      I guess this is where the old saying "never sell or give away a putter" comes from. If what you're using goes sour, you'll have something in your closet that will work!
    • What do you HATE the most about golf?
      Of course we don't hate golf overall, only on certain days. When you have a bad day, what do you hate most about golf? For me it's probably when starting the round off well, thinking "this is going to be a great round", only to hit a few shanks in a row and ruin everything. You get your hopes up, and then your hopes get crushed. So I guess how hard it is to get consistency in my shots. That's really what I hate about golf.
    • The Biggest Secret? SLIDE Your Hips
      I see this is an "oldie but goodie", and I certainly didn't want to wade through 46 pages of content. But just from reading the title of the thread, and this last page, I second that emotion. You have to slide your hips before you turn them! But, how much? I used to do a drill I called the "door jamb" drill. You would set up in an empty door jamb with the outside of your left foot, for a right hander, up against the jamb. You would mimic a swing, and, on the down swing, let your hips "slide" until your left hip hit the jamb. Only then would you start to turn your hips. This puts your left hip directly above your left foot. Thinking back, I used to play a lot of golf with a friend who moved West many years ago. Big guy, 6'4" and 220, but basically an arms and upper body swinger. He could still hit the ball long, but once in a while, by accident, he'd get his lower body involved and then he would crush it like Daly! Every time he did that I'd tease him by saying, "Yeah! You really got your big, fat, left ass cheek into that one, dintcha?!"
    • Reading Greens
      Speaking of stopping half way, I got some of my best reads today by walking halfway between the ball and hole and just taking a look. I was playing in an informal 2 man scramble with some buds for the grand prize of beers and dogs! On the very first hole, an easy par 5, we're putting for eagle. I putt first, and 3 feet from the hole we think the ball is in. A foot from the hole it breaks right and I graze the edge. I mark, and stand aside while my buddy putts. I'm about halfway and from there I can clearly see the subtle little mound in the green that the cup was cut in. You could not see it from behind the ball. Believe me, we checked! I've long been a proponent of letting my feet inform my brain, but if your eyes can't see everything then your feet can't feel everything. They have to work together to get the best read.
    • A Forum Just for Golfing?
      I'm not sure how this applies to my response?  I said if there were something free I'd use it vs build it and, if I wanted to build something just for the heck of it, I would expect that to be free or almost free as well.  This is true, is it not?  I don't consult on how to build internet forums . . . why would I know anything about what free forum software comes with hosting servers?  I assume there is some.
