With all the golf course options around Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. it was a tough choice but we picked the best of the best for our masters golfers. All of our selected courses are within the Cleveland Metroparks.

Sleepy Hollow Golf Course

Sleepy Hollow Golf Course, owned and operated by Cleveland Metroparks, was named one of Golfweek’s top five courses to play in Ohio.

Sleepy Hollow has been the site for many amateur and professional events including qualifying events for United State Golf Association (USGA) Championships and Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship, which is hosted every other year.

Shawnee Hills Golf Course

Shawnee Hills Golf Course is widely known as the Cleveland Metropark’s most versatile course. Golfers, no matter what their skill level or expertise, can enjoy their game on this green.

The front nine of this 18-hole course is compared to a course in the State of Florida due to its gentle rolling terrain and water hazards. Whereas the back nine is a stark change of scenery featuring hills and large trees complete with a creek.

Seneca Golf Course

Seneca Golf Course sits atop the highest point of Cuyahoga County, the county Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A. resides. This 36-hole, park-style course is operated by the Cleveland Metroparks and known for some lengthy par fours and fives.

Showcasing 27 recently renovated holes, this championship length course is home to many tournaments and even earned the description from former American professional golfer Arnold Palmer as “a good testing course.”

Manakiki Golf Course (Finals only)

Manakiki Golf Course was designed by Scottish-born American golf course designer Donald Ross and is operated by the Cleveland Metroparks.

Much of the course’s original character remains from the classic design and offers several challenges to golfers including doglegs, water hazards, up-and-down shots, back-to-back par 5s, short, long, tight, and open holes and two canyon holes.

Manakiki’s rich history is marked by its stately maple trees lining the fairways and surrounding the 200 acre course.
