I have yet to get over to that side of the state, but I plan on it this summer. Which course is a must play?

Did you knock down Belle Isle? They are hoping to get it open this summer. Lots of red tape, but my fingers are crossed. The course has a ton of potential....and poison ivy.

I think the Metroparks (Stony Creek, Hudson Mills, Kensington and Willow) are all first rate facilities and great courses. Independence Lakes, Rolling Hills, River Bends, and Addison Oaks are top notch as well. Apdrvya, Apparition and BogeyNoMore are all great reviewers, and I think they have all of the above reviewed.

river bends was a crap hole. I played there today.
I don't have a lot of good to say

independence lake is amazing
rolling hills is good
addison is fun
Stoney creek is immense and fun
hudson was a long day
kensington (both) were fun
and willow was a swampy mess

I did not yet. I don't count it as it's a temp course.
BUT, if I can get into a tourney there, I'm down

They have been putting on a couple casual tournaments a year. I don't know the exact status of the course right now. I will try to find out and post here. It was rough, but if given access and/or a little state park help, it would be a jewel. I am sorry you did not like River Bends. It is only really playable a couple months in the summer (much like Willow). It is in the final stages of a remodel, it had some great holes once upon a time. I hope some of the glory can be restored.
