Going to Columbus to see family this Memorial Day weekend.. My dad and cousins are looking to go play some new nicer courses.. Anyone know of anything besides Murfield that's nice down there?

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 :(

    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut. 
    • This argument is like saying that someone who wins the first two games in a best of three competition hasn't won because there were two rounds and not three.
