In what used to be a summer estate, Manakiki Golf Course lays across 200 acres of land, and is only 17 miles from downtown Cleveland. The clubhouse was originally a mansion, and the property of the golf course dates to 1944. Green fees are very affordable, and is one of the most unique courses in the area.
Windmill Lakes Golf Club has been around since 1970 and is the home course for the men’s and women’s golf teams at Kent State University. The course only has two par-five holes, but the par-four holes are long and vary in distance, so there’s not a lot of room for error.
