Ohio is home to many beautiful golf courses, some of which are recognised nationally for their difficulty, landscape and competitions.
Ohio has more than 800 private and public courses. At the central-Ohio Longaberger Golf Club in Nashport, the 565yd-long, par-5 fourth hole drops 150 feet from tee to green, while the course itself combines panoramic natural beauty, rolling hills and immaculate playing conditions.
There are more breath-taking views at the 27-hole Shaker Run Golf Club in Lebanon, which is a big favourite with both locals and visitors impressed by the Bentgrass tees, fairways and greens. The Avalon Lakes course at the semi-public Avalon Lakes Golf and Country Club in Warren is a parkland layout designed by world-renowned golf-course architect Pete Dye.
