With sweeping views of the Cuyahoga River valley, Sleepy Hollow is the place to hit up this summer when you're looking to get out on the links. Don't trust us? (Though you should, we've played there dozens and dozens of times). Trust the experts: The course was named the No. 1 public course in Ohio, according to Golfweek magazine, and No. 14 in the entire United States. Because it's a Metroparks property, the prices aren't outrageous in comparison to some other links around the region; and because it's a Metroparks course, it's always in great shape. The greens are fast and harsh. You'd be hard pressed to find a more challenging first three holes. The green on No. 9 will bedevil you. And you'll have a blast. Tee times recommended.
