Hawthorne Valley Country Club
Nice Condition if you stay on the fairways
The course is in great condition, but you are going to spend a lot of time looking for your ball if you don't hit it on the fairways. Balls just sink into the rough and are very hard to find.

Played under wet conditions but the overall shape of the course was not great. The bunkers lacked sand and they were still working on edging and shaping up the bunkers. Tee boxes we're decent and the greens were in fairly good shape.

A Donald Ross Gem
Hawthorne is one of the best public courses in Ohio. It is a Donald Ross design that opened in 1924. The layout is not long but very demanding and tight--lots of doglegs. Small greens. Conditions are average to above average. The course is hilly and similar to Manakiki. Pace of Play was stop and go, but I still got done in about 4 hours as a single on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The back 9 is not as tight and you can hit driver more. Regular rates are about $65 but you can get GolfNow Hot Deals for around $25 around noon most days!

Very narrow, small greens
This is definitely one of the tighter courses in the area no question about it. You really don't need to hit driver more than three or four times even off the back tees, definitely a course that rewards accuracy over distance. The greens here are some of the smallest I've ever seen. Overall an interesting course

Classic Donalkd Ross when you make a miostake it often costs more than one shot
It has the feel of a private club. The course is very well maintained. Definitely the best public course in NE Ohio

Best Golf Course I've Ever Been To
The moment I walked into the Pro Shop the staff treated me very well. Course conditions were perfect. The course layout was interesting. They even give you little pretzels, water and ice one a few holes. The putting greens, fairways and rough were cut thoughtfully and in great condition. They have a driving range with markers at many distance points and they also have a practice bunker! Seriously, this place is awesome.

The place is very nice . They even offer bagels and juice in the morning for free...which public other course offers that!!! Ice, water and pretzels on the course. Facility very clean. Holes very well kept....a must go.
