Big Met Golf Course

Fairview Park, Ohio | 18 holes | Par: 72 | 6481 yards

Big Met Golf Course (originally named Course #1), believed to be Ohio's most played golf course, has hosted over 6,000,000 rounds of golf since it opened in 1926. During the ""Golden Era"" of golf in the early 1920s, the sports director of the Cleveland Press, Rodney C. Sutton, proposed that the Cleveland Metropolitan Park Board build a golf course in the Rocky River Valley. Local golf enthusiasts persuaded the board that golf was a growing sport and that a ""Pay as you play"" course was needed and would be supported.With gentle rolling hills, moderate length, eight sand bunkers, and neatly trimmed rough, Big Met Golf Course has the ideal blend of scenic beauty and playability, yet the course is challenging enough for the advanced player.
