I'm pretty sure it was Hidden Lake prior to its closure earlier this year. Now I'm not real sure. 


I didn't know they closed. Another one bites the dust. I haven't played that one, but it would have been high on the list by word of mouth. I would have to say Cliffside then Jamaica Run. The condition of JR isn't horrible, but it has a hoaky layout on several holes that were made to fit in with the others. Penn Terra is borderline, but they have fairly nice greens. Rumor has it that one might be closing. Sadly, I think Moss Creek is a borderline GT too. Really nice layout, but maintenance is poor.

I'm adding shttyhawk to the list. >=[

I suppose it would have to be Cliffside, but I really like that course. Obviously that's a family-run type place and maintenance has to be tough for them. Never played Jamaica Run or Moss Creek, but have heard the conditions at the later are terrible.

 

It's all relative, but Community and Kittyhawk are not goat tracks in my estimation. They may not be sparkling jewels, but they are solid, playable courses. By comparison, Hidden Lake literally did not have fairways. The greens were ok, but the ground everywhere else was lumpy. I remember my bruv hit one of the best drives of his short golfing life out there and lost it in what should have been the fairway.

Weather is looking pretty dicey this weekend, but I was going to try to get a super early round in Saturday morning. Gotta be in B'creek at 2 p.m., so I was thinking Community around 8 a.m. if anyone is up for it.

Unfortunately I'm pretty tapped out after the trip to Erie. Next week probably would work better. I may get that deal for Moss Creek to use just to play that course some time over the next couple of weeks.

I am already set to play with some guys from work Saturday morning at Community. Will be out there around 7:30 or so. Maybe another weekend!

I'm more of an afternoon golfer, but I'm not sure that I'm going out this weekend. Might catch a Sunday afternoon round if I get my work done and band practice goes OK Sunday morning.

I'll be playing somewhere Sunday afternoon weather permitting. Probably either Kittyhawk or Miami Shores.

There is a deal on group golfer:

 

Moss Creek Golf Club | Ohio Golf Coupons | GroupGolfer.com

 

I'm thinking of buying one of the "coupons" to use either this sunday or next weekend. If anyone else is open to going there.

post #353 of 490

Alright. I'm game if you are.

 

Never been out there. Hopefully it's not as bad as some of the reviews on the net would have you believe. I'm wide open Sunday.

A friend played out there earlier in the summer and said the bunkers are awful (grass growing in them) and overall shape is not the best.

 

Rolled my ankle this morning mowing, so I'll probably be resting it this weekend.

Lawn mowing injuries suck. Once I nearly lost my big toe doing something stupid with a mower. Lucky I was wearing steel toes that day.

 

Even if it sucks, it's probably good to see new courses. From what I hear the layout is pretty solid.

It's an awesome layout for sure. I used to love playing before the dark age of golf.

 

I was just walking behind the mower and "found" a hole that one of the dogs created previously.

Apparently I won't get my voucher until tomorrow evening so it will probably be next week that I'll play there. Sucks because I wanted to play this weekend and that was my best bet for a round that fit my budget
post #358 of 490

Alright JB. Let me know when you want to hit Moss Creek up and maybe we can swing it next week. 

post #359 of 490

Ok, Mcanadiens and I are coordinating a round at Moss Creek for either Saturday afternoon @ 3 pm ish or possibly Sunday if it that's not available and the weather holds out. Right now it looks wide open for the Saturday afternoon times. If anyone else is wanting to go that would be great. I can't book online though because it expects payment right away and I have a voucher from group golfer to use.

I will be out of town this weekend!
