100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES
1 / 3
“The Westfield Country Club’s North Course has an authentic Scottish linksland feel, with revetted bunkers, fescue rough, few trees (but woodlands bordering the course, as in many Scottish links properties), and stone walls. But the rough-hewn cart paths and fescue walking paths really added authenticity to me. Of course, it’s hard to create a true links playing surface in northern Ohio, and the course design and play is pretty much target golf. The greens are the stars of the show, with a combination of major breaks and minor twists and turns. Most greens are guarded by only one or two bunkers and fairway cut or light rough, so varied recovery shots are possible. This, coupled with rather wide fairways, makes for a very enjoyable round of golf. The routing and hole variety is unusual, with a par of 70 (five pars 3s) and no par 5 until hole 14. The similarity of the par 3s in terms of distance and hole design is a limitation."

“A phenomenal links-style golf course. When the fesque turns golden brown in the summer it makes the course look beautiful. Speaking of the fesque - stay out of it."

“Adequately demanding to test all levels, but an exceptional set of forward tees allows this links style course to be enjoyed by all."
