Comments: Golfers Wanted Saturday Morning Traveling Group
Looking to add a couple regulars to our Saturday morning traveling league for 2014 (April 19 October). Play every week or only a few weeks various NE Ohio area courses. We have hcps ranging from 5 to 36. We play money games totaling $19.00 per week. Stats/schedule kept on website. If interested, email me at jimc AT crmoh DOT com and I will send league website info .or call 216 410-1897 (leave message).
Comments: What is the most recent information about Thunder Hill. I received an email wit all kinds of membership options for next season. The website also has 2014 pricing listed. Have they been cutting and maintaining this course while they were closed. I love to play the course and hopefully they can get it back in shape.

Comments: Well the season is over for the most part - now five months of misery before it gets time to play regularly again. Hate it. Retiring and moving south in a few years hopefully. I like Ohio for the most part, but the weather while not the worst, is pretty bad overall.

Comments: I've played !most! (Not all) of the courses in ohio just this past year my Rankings are like this: 1. Manakiki- played it when it was wet, everything stuck, yet evern when it was pouring down, the course held up beautifully, loved the 8th 2. Pine hills-I've never seen a better conditioned public course, enough said, I thought the greens were relatively overrated. 3. Sleepy Hollow- 45 and 6 are weak holes, everything else is amazing, I need to play it when it is dry, the course is relatively easy when wet. 4. Fowlers Mill- great design, great greens, mediocre-great conditioning, but definently one of the most fun courses love the 4th 5. Big Met (without crowds)- very enjoyable with great location, it's just always sososososososososo packed Honorable mentions: pleasant valley, legacy, Cherokee hills STAY AWAY FROM Grey hawk- takes away all shot opportunities, cannot walk it, basically what makes golf another job, not a hobby
Comments: I don't understand the love for Kennsington. It is a good layout, and they are fortunate to have that piece of property. That is where the praise from me ends. Every time I play there, the fairways are terrible with bare patches and unrepaired divots. The greens were garbage, with bare muddy patches, and I'd be surprised if anyone has ever repaired a pitch mark. The tee boxes are terrible, littered with divots and broken tees. The course seems to have placed all of their focus on the club house and bar/ grill, because they have a small army working in there at all times but you will not see an employee of Kennsington on the golf course. It's a shame that they don't give the course the attention it deserves, but continue to charge country club prices. I receive e-mails from them every week listing their food specials and entertainment, but never promoting their golf course. The course has never once impressed or surprised me with it's upkeep.
Comments: My guess is that this content hasn't seen much updating since the spring. Glad to hear Grey Hawk is coming back. If you can sneak out during the week, golfnow has 18 for $25-$35a steal even if not in perfect condition. But yes, for those that are confused, it had been give a lowered grade last year/earlier this year because the fairways had simply died.
Comments: We played Sleepy Hollow yesterday. What a great course. Shot ok, but everyone was putting 10 + strokes more than normal. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Rough could have been a little shorter. Great friends, great course, beautiful day, what more could you ask for.
