The Kirtland Country Club

The Kirtland Country Club

Golf Course Review by: Billy Satterfield

The Takeaway:  Kirtland Country Club is one of the hidden gems in America and stands tall among the golf course rich Ohio pedigree. While the front nine is good, the back nine is one of the best in the country. I can't wrap my head around how Kirtland is left off the national Top 100 rankings and stands as one of the most underrated courses I've ever played.   Grade A
