Corporate Golf Outings in Northeast Ohio

Corporate Golf Outings

Planning Corporate Golf Outings

Ohio stands out when it comes to golf. The state boasts some of the finest courses in the country! Firestone Country Club in Akron, is frequently top-of-mind with most who enjoy the sport, since it has been “home” to the PGA (Professional Golf Association) since its inception nearly a century ago. The venue has attracted top talent like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicholas, Tiger Woods, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan and many, many more.

Due to the many fine courses located in this area, planning a golf outing requires that you just keep a few things in mind: What is the objective of the event? Who will be invited? What type of facilities will be needed? Will golfers expect carts or caddies to be available?

A Few Clubs You May Wish to Consider

  • Sleepy Hollow (Brecksville) This course is owned by the city and operated by the Cleveland Metroparks. It was recently voted one of Ohio’s top municipal courses. Sleepy Hollow’s 18-hole Golf Course is ranked the second-highest municipal course in the state and it is also ranked as one of the top 20 in the nation. Overlooking the Cuyahoga River Valley, the course is known for its scenery almost as much as its challenging layout. It has a traditional design with a classic out-and-in routing, with the incoming holes playing uphill into the wind, making them seem much longer than the indicated yardage.
  • Stonewater Golf Club (Highland Heights) Stonewater is a semi-private regulation golf course and facility, constructed in 1996. The course covers 178 acres. Water accents the landscape in the form of wetlands, streams and lakes as well as the waterfowl indigenous to the area. Sixteen of the 18 holes have water hazards, which necessitated 23 wooden bridges on the course. The well-manicured grounds are breath-taking and offer great lies. The club also boasts a newer club house which can be booked for special events.
  • Fowler’s Mill Golf Course (Chesterland) In the late 1960’s, TRW began its quest to build a first rate golf course similar to other corporate golf properties like NCR and Firestone.  After a long search, 1500 acres of land were chosen in Geauga County. After planning a 54 hole layout, eventually shortened to 27 holes, the project needed an architect. The talents of Ohio native Pete Dye were in great demand when he and his brother Roy came to Chesterland to build this course from 1969-1971. In 1986, the property was sold to American Golf Corporation, and dozens of new names were suggested for the course. The company finally settled on a name reminiscent of early gristmill owner and original settler Milo Fowler; they chose Fowler’s Mill. Since then, the signature railroad ties, split fairways, and wooden bridges first conceived on Pete and Alice Dye’s trips to Scotland have remained unchanged.
  • Westwood Country Club (Rocky River) The original golf course property was incorporated in 1914, and has been completely redesigned by Major Charles Hugh Alison, one of the foremost golf course architects of the day. The course was finished in June 1926 and first used for Ohio’s State Tournament of that year. Many of golf’s greatest names have enjoyed playing Westwood, including legends Bobby Jones and Arnold Palmer, who hold the professional course record of 64. Westwood Country Club’s state-of-the-art clubhouse opened in 2009 and features modern amenities in a luxurious, colonial revival style building. The golf course continues to showcase the natural beauty of the property with acres of expertly manicured fairways and greens. It boasts beautiful stone bridges and water features that complement its scenic as well as challenging design.
