I play the Columbus munis.  Theyre decent courses and the greens fees are cheap.  Im no, "buckeye" golfer, more like a Badger living in Buckeye country but Columbus is a nice city for golf.

Ive also played Legendary Run in Cincy and thats a very nice course.  Its a tough course but its nice.

I just got on this board about a week ago.

Generally I play the City of Dayton courses (Community, Kittyhawk and Madden). When I'm at my brothers in Troy, we play Miami Shores. They are all good, forgiving courses for hacks like me. My brother and I tried to play Reid Memorial North in Springfield a couple of weeks ago and made a mess of it. I must of lost no short of 6 balls that day.

We get around to a few others. Ever play a place called Hidden Lake? I'd like to hear others' take on that one.

Ive got nothing but love for the people in Ohio but having said that, it would be perfectly fine with me if Ohio State never won another game. ;-)

About the Packer game: the Browns are the Browns for a reason.  The Bengals are pretty good though.  At least the Packers managed to beat the 2nd best NFL team in Ohio.

I've played them all many times back in the day.  I lived close to Turnberry in Pickerington....I've played that course more than all the others combined.  I cut my golfing teeth playing those courses.....and lets not forget Blacklick Gold.  I always loved that course. I've probably played blacklick and turnberry over 100 times each.

I've played all over the state, but never in the Dayton area........... I've heard about Reid Memorial, but never got around to making the trip.  I hear that's a pretty good course.

When I was stationed at Wright-Patt I played a lot more than I have since I left there.  I liked the City of Dayton courses a lot, and I agree, all are pretty forgiving for hacks like me.  I think I liked Madden the best.   I liked the courses on base.  I played Hidden Lake 2 or 3 times, not sure why but it didn't really click for me.  I thought it was a little undermaintained and I thought it played harder than it looked.  I liked Cliffside right down the road, though.  Up in that area I thought Sugar Isle was the best.  WGC in Xenia was one I liked, Sebastian Hills in the same area killed a hack like me (but it was nice).  Beavercreek was another nice-but-tough course I remember.   I loved that area and I thought there were a lot decent but inexpensive courses.

Not sure how long ago that was, but calling Hidden Lake undermaintained is like calling hell warm. Not only are the fairways the same length as the rough, but they have these holes and ruts that decent drives go to die in. You should never lose a ball on a fairway.

I'd second you on Cliffside and WGC. Sugar Isle is decent when they tend the greens. I played out there earlier this year and it was like putting through molasses. Still, we do have a lot of cheap golf courses and that's golden for people on a budget like me.

Reid Memorial North is definitely a nice course. It's one of the better maintained municipal courses I've seen. The greens run really true, but if you miss the fairway, you are in trouble. I hear the South course is the easier of the two and probably would have been a better choice for my skill level. It's also real cheap, especially if you go through Golfnow.

    • My home course has marsh or a wide ravine running across 6 of the 9 holes, 4 of which are in front of the tee boxes (no real room/advantage laying up). Some of us get like 200 yards of carry on our drives and one of those 4 has about that much marsh. Even on holes that don't require a good drive, playing from the tips can mean carrying water to a tight green or fairway with a long iron or wood off the tee instead of a mid or short iron. Not saying that's anything special for better players, only that it adds a little extra challenge to those of us less skilled when we know we have to hit our distances with those longer clubs. All I'm saying is carrying those hazards isn't as much of a concern when playing from the forward or middle tees. That said, looking over the other courses I play, you're right, most are not that bad.
    • Well, I wouldn't go around moving just any ball, but with the right circumstances, it can be warranted.  And, as @drmevo pointed out, since you knew it didn't come from your hole, then it wasn't going to be playable from that spot anyway.  No need to even mark, just kick it aside, hit your chip and then put it roughly back where it was. Actually, neither have I, but I know that if it ever does happen, that's how I'd handle it. 
    • I was thinking the same thing.  I can't possibly think of worse things to wear then jeans for golf.  Has to be horribly uncomfortable.  I live in the PNW.  Off season i usually either wear a base layer under golf pants or wear some heavier wool trousers on occasion.  honestly if its any colder then that im probably not playing.
    • I rarely feel rushed.  But i am a fast player based on what i see around me on the courses.  I think the course does play a part in it.  Courses that have long distances between green to next tee definitely take longer to play.  Some courses that have alot of big hazards can make it longer also.     When i play in a 4 some with my boss and a few other managers at private club we usually play in about 3hrs walking or riding.  its always empty in front of us.  All 4 of us are reasonably quick players that play ready golf.  We visit alot and have a good time out there, we just seem to move along at a good pace.  The course helps in that its a short walk green to next tee box.  Easy walking course and laid out user friendly in that way..   The muni that i play alot is usually 4+hrs.  Honestly when it starts pushing out towards 4.5hrs or so it starts to be a drag.  I'm not a huge fan of constantly waiting.     I used to be in a mens club and played club events.  But i stopped because the 5+hr rounds were killing me.  All those guys have played the course plenty of times, shouldnt take that long to read putts or decide club off the tee etc.
