Big Met may not be the crown jewel of the Metroparks' golf courses, but it's certainly the course most people have played and enjoyed. With a few really long holes, a few killer curves, and a few babies, it's terrific for an autumn afternoon with a foursome, or even a company retreat. Down in the valley, you can't ask for prettier scenery, and the Metroparks' staffers there are always friendly and eager to assist. This spot is great for beginners and long-time duffers alike.
