Roscoe Ewing Park
Good course. Some open holes, some trees, some water, some elevation changes, not too much of any one thing. Only 15 holes now. 7,8 and 9 were closed due to the railroad crossing and the fact that they put a walking path right down the middle of the course. Plenty of waiting for walkers and joggers to pass. Most are very nice and seem eager to coexist but others feel you are infringing on them despite the fact the first hole was laid in 1974, making this the oldest course in Ohio. Anyway... They have two tee boxes on some holes, although only a few are more then adding a short distance. Trash cans are every where which is nice. Certainly not Portage Lakes, hands down best course in the area, but a good challenging course.
I really liked this course. The lay-out is in a city park, so you are playing around the bike path, near the creek, and near the RR tracks. The lay-out uses all different types of terrain: uphill, downhill, over creek, along bike path, through trees.
Most holes have 2 tee areas. Each hole has a small map to give you an idea of where the cage is.
I parked in the small lot near hole 8 and 9, which is easy to get to from Rt 18. Of the 5 courses in Ohio, this is my favorite so far.
Growing up, I was spoiled to have this beautiful and challenging course nearby! Located in a wooded park, buried between a few suburban neighborhoods, expect to see several other groups playing when you go.
The park's two entrances have sufficient parking; one has a playground (near holes 8 and 9), the other has a practice basket.
18 holes, many with secondary tees, cover the full range of technical throws. A few 400'+ let you really wing'em. The "short" tees still offer plenty of challenge for the average player.
About 1/3 the holes have water hazards - a creek runs through the middle of the park. Some have open fairways, others are muddled with trees, and 5 or 6 have significant elevation change.
A bike path runs through the course, make sure to look before you throw!
Since "growing up" and moving away from Medina, I've played dozens of other courses... this one is still the best!
This is one of the oldest courses in Ohio, if not the first. I have been told they once had wooden pins! The course now is fairly well laid out. A few long shots here, but the trees make every hole challenging enough. There are a couple holes with elevation change, some with water hazards, and good signage. Overall I would give this course a 4.5. There are some great players that have come from here and I'm sure more to come.
This is a great course. Played at Parma Euclid and a few courses in Columbus and this is by far the best course. It's very clean with lots of complex twists and turns to keep you on yout toes. In the year and a half since we've been playing they've moved almost half of their holes which is impressive and keeps your game thinking going.
The only coplaint that I have is they never have any scorecards and I'm not exactly sure what par is. I'm sure it's posted somewhere obscure but I couldn't find it. No restrooms are another negative. Also sometimes there are a lot of young kids hanging around smoking which gets anoying.
I liked this course a lot. There are two starting pads for each hole and pictures to show where to throw. There are a lot of elevation changes which was fun. I am a beginner and have also played Euclid and Parma and this course was my favorite so far.
