The Buckeye State of Ohio lies in the Midwest Region of the United States with Lake Erie and the Ohio River defining its northern and southern boundaries. Columbus, with just over three quarters of a million people, is the state capital and the largest city in terms of population.
The Ohio Golf Association was founded in 1904 so it has been looking after the interests of male golfers in the state for over a century now. Today’s organisation administers to over 800 clubs from, alphabetically, Acacia Country Club in Lyndhurst all the way through to Zoar Village in Dover. Another governing body, the Northern Ohio Golf Association, promotes interclub competition between 14,000 members who belong to around 50 private clubs.
Ohio is home to two of the finest golf courses in the world, Jack Nicklaus’s Muirfield Village and Pete Dye’s Golf Club. These two modern layouts are standouts though a further trio of classic old courses are often listed in national Top 100 rankings: Seth Raynor’s 1925 offering at Camargo and a pair of 1916 Donald Ross layouts: Inverness Club and Scioto.
