Two good resources: Ohio Golf Guide is a website with user reviews of every club, public and private, in the state and has top 25 rankings of the best public, private and 9 hole tracks ba

I haven't played many of the courses on the list, but I am familiar with the tracks around Cleveland. I personally love Manakiki and Wicked Woods, but I'm surprised Little Mountain did not end up on this list. It is one of the best courses in the state.

Manakiki is an incredible layout (Thank you, Mr. Ross). Once they get finished bringing the course back up to snuff...it'll be amazing. The Metroparks are good at adding bells and whistles to the clubhouse, let's see how good they are at restoring a classic gem.

lol That list is missing a TON of great courses. What about what used to be a constant #2 public course in Ohio on Golf Digest's list... Blue Heron on River Styxx Road in Medina, OH? Hands down one of the nicest courses that I have ever seen. Event St. Bernards is a very nice course in Hinckley, OH. To think Little Mountain wasn't listed also though, pretty much sums up why these other 2 are not on there I guess.

The golf link rankings are rediculous.  If you look at the top 100 nationwide you'll see a Seattle Muni at 3 that doesn't make the top 3 in the Seattle area.

There is a very obvious skew to public courses in large metro areas look at how many less than stellar So Cal public courses are in their top 100.

Hahahahahahaha.........Ok, how is this on the list?  ....a joke, right?  This made me laugh out loud.   The Safari I remember was a piece of crap, dumpy course next to the Columbus zoo.  WOW...that alone makes the entire list a complete joke. I haven't heard of several of those while there are great courses not on the list.

I live pretty near Kennisington, I play it frequently. And it's number 1?! I think not. I cannot believe Boulder Creek didn't make the list! BC could easily be in the top 5 public courses in Ohio. I also play Firestone Farms quite often...and it's just another typical public course. This list is garbage.

I'm curious to see what the judging criteria was for this list.

Longaberger, Inverness, Firestone, Muirfield, OSU Scarlet, Canterbury, Sand Ridge, there is even a TPC course in Ohio...In no particular order of course. I would put probably these 8 in the top 10

I have walked the south course at firestone many of times, i have played the north course. I think the north course is a much better course to play.

The Quarry in Canton, Ohio is absolutely amazing, though they jacked there prices up a bit, which makes it a once a year place for me, its a gem.

Longaberger is a bit overrated, its way overpriced

Brookside Country club is an amazing course by Donald Ross, sits in Canton, Ohio. Very very private, but my favorite course i ever played.

I played The Quarry a couple of years back. Great track. Winds thru a rock quarry. 17th hole is the signature - 235 from the back, downhill par 3 water left & front third of green.

I grew up outside of Akron, and there are a lot of puzzlers not on that list, most already mentioned - Firestone North, Stonewater...how about Windmill Lakes in Ravenna?

And while Manakiki is a pretty good course, I don't think it's even the best Cleveland Metropark course...that would be Sleepy Hollow in Brecksville.

Many of you from/around Akron should definitely consider playing Blue Heron if you have not. It's not the most pristine course by any means, but it is just a gorgeous course and very challenging. Be prepared to spend around $70-80 before you leave though. It's a nice little treat to play, especially early August.

I'm just glad the course that I most frequent is actually staying open year-round. The only part that worries me is the damage that will be done to the course with virtually no downtime for regrowth and repair. Kind of makes me wonder why any course in Ohio would remain open December-March. I can see early November, especially when we're still hitting the 60's consistently. If I were a course owner though, I would definitely be closed from say, Thanksgiving to March with strict cart paths only enforced through April (if necessary, however we do usually get pounded by rain here).

We played Royal Oaks earlier this year, which is by no means a top course, it's just a nice little public course.They claimed that they stayed open too long the year prior and the tee boxes were just destroyed. They had no time to let the new seed come in, the greens were not aerated, fairways were just burned up, etc.  Now, for the right price, I would not complain. $45 for 18+cart though and I'm scratching my head wondering where the profits are going. Perhaps that is why they are no longer open.

    • It's just a small amount of money with everyone chipping in $30 for the pot, with 3 places for F9, B9 and overall. I played yesterday and finished second place with a score of 90 and most importantly didn't blow up in the last two holes.
    • Then you should know, it has never been, nor will it ever be, someone’s duty to give their life in the service.  In fact, we go to great lengths to train to try to ensure that doesn’t happen.
    • I have 2 thoughts: Option 1 is to strengthen the 5 iron to separate a little more from the 6 iron, drop the 4 iron and take some off the hybrid when you need to hit the 190 shot. Grip down, hit a fade, whatever, the 2H is a versatile club.  Option 2 is to adjust your wedge lofts to get the gapping a little more in the 12-15 yard range and drop one. For instance, weaken the PW to 127, adjust the others to hit 115, 100, 85.   
    • Its disappointing when any figure of authority is offended when rules are enforced, or purposely breaks the rules themselves.  That authority figure might be a parent, coach, a clergyman, a member of the military or law-enforcement, or an elected official, and the rules must apply to all of them, and its their role to teach their subordinates (children, players, congregation, whatever) to show integrity in following the rules.  Its absolutely for players to enforce rules on themselves and on one another, its absolutely appropriate for a coach to provide honest information (i.e. the time elapsed since the beginning of a search) to help enforce the rules.  I'm just happy to hear that the player S didn't follow his own coaches lead.  I'm also hoping that the R player wasn't one of the left-handed Stoneleigh members who's at the event, along with his university team and his Dad.
    • Yep.  Promising.  I hope we ultimately find it to be true in this case.
