During my research, it quickly became apparent that network of city-owned courses in Cleveland is among the best in the country.
Another shining example is Shawnee Hills.
The original 18-hole course was designed by Ben Zink in 1957.
A classic parkland design, accuracy is key as the narrow fairways are lined by massive oak trees and the greens are small.
In the summer, the putting surfaces get firm and fast. Putting downhill isn’t much fun.
Always in good shape and a treat to play, you’ll want to experience a round at Shawnee Hills.
