Golfweek’s Best 2022: Top public and private courses in Ohio

- Advertisement -

Both the top-rated public and private courses in Ohio have a rich history of leading competition.

Topping the list of publicly accessible layouts in the state, Firestone Country Club South Course has hosted three PGA Championships, multiple PGA Tour events including the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and the Senior Players Championship for many years. Mostly a private club, Firestone offers game time to public golfers who book a “stay and play” package. And South Course isn’t the only one, as two other Firestone courses also rank among the best publicly accessible layouts in the state.

On the private side, the village of Muirfield hosts the annual PGA Tour Memorial Tournament. Managed by Jack Nicklaus, the club has also hosted the 1987 Ryder Cup, 1992 US Amateur Cup, 1998 Solheim Cup, 2013 Presidents Cup and 1986 US Junior Cup.
