Site of the US Women’s Amateur in 1920, the Mayfield course at Mayfield Sand Ridge Club is a classic Golden Age design that’s laid out across a rolling landscape, with a couple of creeks coming into play on occasion.
Mayfield is a hidden gem in Northeast Ohio. A Bert Way design with little earth moving, it is quirky with many original and memorable holes. It also has some pure and subtle greens.
#2 is a blind uphill shot to a wildly sloping fairway. The approach is to a small green that is fast and slopes back to front.
#5 is one tough hole. The doghill right downhill tee shot has a creek on the right and fescue and bunkers on the left, or if you hit it straight and too fair. If you land safely in the fairway, you have a good shot at the green, but anything off the fairway is in danger of going right or long into the greenside creek.
#7 only requires an iron tee shot, but the creek on the left and challenging green makes it a difficult par. #14 is another tough par. The downhill tee shot is not too tough, but the approach is long and difficult.
