A recent addition to Ohio's plethora of fine courses came in the form of the Golf Club at Stonelick Hills in Batavia. Numerous trees and water make the gently meandering course feel like a pleasant stroll to grandmother's house. But beware! The woods eat balls at Stonelick. Fortunately, you're saving on green's fees (not over $59, Monday-Thursday) so a few lost Titleists won't be so hard to swallow. In Lagrange (Cleveland), OH, Grey Hawk Golf Club "is a championship course built to USGA specifications" with ten lakes and streams that offer tranquility (in nature) and frustration (in golf).
The combination of the two is more than enough to justify the already-reasonable greens fees Ohio has to offer. When in the state, your Ohio golf experience(s) will include bentgrasson the greens and fairways with occasional Blue grass mixed into the fairways and rough. Depending on the type of grass, you may need to read and stroke your putts differently.
Ohio is home to the greatest golfer of the last century, Jack Nicklaus and some of today's best course architects. Pete Dye, Arthur Hills, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Hurdzan and Mike Stranz have all called Ohio home.
