Taken from its website as a description of the course, Pine Hills has consistently been named as one of THE places to play in northern Ohio. It is the only 4 and a half star rated course (as rated by players voting in Golf Digest) in the area and has been reviewed favorably in all local publications. The Plain Dealer again featured it in the "Elite 18" and featured our 18th hole as one of the top holes in the area.
Pappy Paddock designed the course in 1957 to be a beautiful and challenging layout for all levels of golfers - but don't take the yardage lightly. The course plays much longer than the scorecard indicates due to its watered, bentgrass fairways, elevated greens and undulating terrain. The Pro would suggest an extra club to approach the bentgrass greens on any given day!
Due to its terrain and difficulty, pace of play is closely monitored for the enjoyment of all our customers. Yardage is marked on cart paths, sides of fairways, all sprinkler heads and with 150 yard posts in the center of fairways to help players move through the course.
Pine Hills has some great and challenging holes in its layout including the par-4 finishing hole that measures over 400 yards and has a split fairway with a long carry over water on your 2nd shot to either the lay up area or the green. Many a time has the 18th come down to the deciding factor in the tournaments at Pine Hills.
