Ranking Ohio’s top 10 golf courses you can actually play for 2024

By admin Jun17,2024

Firestone Country Club in Akron is the top public-access golf course in Ohio for 2024, according to Golfweek. In fact, it made the list three times.

But wait — isn’t Firestone a private country club? Don’t professional golfers compete in a tournament there?

The answer to those questions is yes. But Golfweek’s ranking doesn’t limit itself to public courses where golfers can walk in, pay a fee and play a round. It also includes some private courses where non-members can play in some form, usually through a package deal with a hotel or something similar.

How golfers can play Firestone Country Club without a membership

Firestone offers “Stay & Play Packages,” where golfers can book a club room or villa on the golf course grounds for two or three nights and play three rounds of golf (one each on the North, South and Fazio courses) or four rounds (All courses with one replay that excludes the South Course), depending on the package selected.

Pricing varies by season, according to Firestone’s website, which recommends calling the club for details.

The country club is also available for corporate outings and private events, another way non-members might have a chance to play.
