Sand Ridge is an elegant course located in the western foothills of the Appalachian Mountains around 30 miles from Cleveland. Designed by Tom Fazio, great care was taken to construct the course in harmony with its surroundings in such an environmentally sensitive area.

When Fairmount Minerals decided to build a golf course from 300 acres left over from their 500-acre mining site, they decided to let the land rule the course, not the other way round. The outcome is a course unlike any other in the State, one where golfers remark upon the tranquility of playing at Sand Ridge – there is no housing on the property for instance, so noise is never an issue in or around the course.

The rivers Cuyahoga and Chagrin rise in the 150 acres of wetlands at Sand Ridge, providing a perfect habitat for the wide variety of plants, animals and birds in the area. In this rich and mature landscape, amongst the rolling hills, the fairways are mainly wide and tree lined, putting surfaces are large and many are multi tiered with gentle undulations. There are several water holes which blend beautifully into the course routing and from tee to green, the course is always kept in immaculate condition.

The Sand Ridge Golf Club merged in 2006 with Mayfield Country Club from South Euclid forming the new Mayfield Sand Ridge Club allowing members of both establishments to use the facilities on offer at either location.

Description: One of two courses owned by the Mayfield Sand Ridge Club, Sand Ridge is an elegant course located in the western foothills of the Appalachian Mountains around 30 miles from Cleveland. Rating: 3.7 out of 6 Reviews: 3

Sand Ridge is a strong Fazio course. Some people consider it their favorite course in NE Ohio, but I think Brookside, Country, and Kirtland are better. Sand Ridge is the most difficult course in NE Ohio though, largely due to the high and penalizing rough.

Like many Fazio courses, the course looks more difficult off the tee than it is. Driver is too much club on most of the Par 4s. You only need driver on the Par 5s and two of the Par 4s: #12 and #14.

The course is full of strong holes, but I agree with other reviews that none are very memorable to a golfer that has played a lot of Top 200 courses. The best holes are the #3 Par 5 and #16 Par 4 that wraps around the water. The #18 Par 5 is a good finishing hole.

This is a very disappointing Tom Fazio course with a poor collection of uninspiring and unattractive holes.

While the conditioning is of a high standard, you’d struggle to remember any hole as the course doesn’t offer much in terms of architectural merit.

More mindless cart golf.

Sand Ridge is a wonderful course located east of Cleveland, Ohio. Fazio designed the course with owner Bill Conway with the sole purpose of a golf only club. With difficult greens and unforgiving rough, golfers must limit their mistakes in order to score well.
