Default Visiting Idlewild in October- course suggestions

My buddies and I are going to play Idlewild on Sat 22 October. We are driving up from Raleigh, NC Thursday night. The tentative plan is to drive to Huntington, WV thursday night, get up Friday and play Rotary Park and Indian Rock then drive to Independence, KY for Lincoln Ridge. Sat I am thinking Cedar Sentinels just to get state #13 then Idlewild. Sunday I want to play Mt. Airy Forest in the morning before heading home.

Are there any locals that can suggest good alternate courses that are "must play"?

Osage Grove in Goshen could be called a must play. It's on the east side so after playing Airy Sunday morning it wouldn't be too much of a detour (if any) to play there before leaving town.

Another vote for Osage Grove -- it's a big-time local favorite. If you like your golf a bit on the open side, Dunham Rec Center plays on an old ball golf course but has a higher fun factor than many of those courses.

You might want to play Osage Grove on your way into town on Friday. It's on the northeast side of Greater Cincinnati and kind of out by itself. Jay Dub's right in that it's a must play. That means you come in on either 32 or 50 via 52 though. Not sure if you're taking 64 over to 75 or what? That would leave you with Lincoln Ridge, Idlewild, and (if you still have the energy) Cedar semi close to each other to keep your driving time down. Then you could play Airy Sunday morning and hit the road after that.

Looks like I will take 52 from WV. Okay I making notes of all this information. Thinking we'll skip Indian Rock in favor of Osage Grove. It gets us to the vicinity of the final destination earlier in the day. Thanks

Thanks, being from North Carolina I would not know what to do on an open course (kidding we have 2). When we travel we usually try to find courses to challenge our shot shaping. I will add this to the list of courses to look at with my buddies.

Just started planning yesterday so at this point I have no clue. I will look for a hotel near Lincoln ridge so we don't have too far to go after epic day 1.

Are you planning on doing anything besides bagging courses? Breweries/restaurants/general party fun? You should have no trouble finding a hotel in that general area. It's a pretty suburban area though.
