Your opinion matters! Voting is NOW OPEN to determine the Top 25 Best Public Courses and Top 25 Best Private Clubs at Northern Ohio Golf. Plus, cast a bonus HOT LIST vote in five public course category polls.

The list of courses eligible to receive Top 25 votes comes from our Industry Insiders, a group of people in the golf business in Northern Ohio who each created their own Top 25 lists. If a course received even one vote from an Insider anywhere in their Top 25, that course made the public vote eligibility list.

Voting is limited to residents of these Northern Ohio counties: Allen, Ashland, Ashtabula, Carroll, Columbiana, Cuyahoga, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Geauga, Hancock, Henry, Holmes, Huron, Jefferson, Lake, Lorain, Lucas, Mahoning, Medina, Ottawa, Paulding, Portage, Putnam, Sandusky, Seneca, Stark, Summit, Trumbull, Tuscarawas, Van Wert, Wayne, Williams, Wood, Wyandot.

How to Vote for Your Top 25

We tested a couple of online voting systems to handle these rankings. But because there are so many courses from which to choose and they need to be ranked in order from 1 through 25, we found it easiest to have each voter simply write up his or her rankings then email that list to us. (Decidedly low-tech, but surprisingly it really is the easiest method.)

To help you create your two lists, we offer three files:
TEXT FILE GOLF COURSE LIST | WORD DOC GOLF COURSE LIST | SPREADSHEET GOLF COURSE LIST

Use one of these files to see all of the golf courses eligible for ranking. Then in the body of an email (NOT as an ATTACHMENT!), create one Public Courses List ranked 1-25 and one Private Clubs List ranked 1-25. When you are finished, send it to us by email.

So as an example, write something like this in the body of an email (with each list ranked in your order):

SUBJECT: Top 25 Lists

PRIVATE CLUBS
1. Club Name
2. Club Name
3. Club Name

25. Club Name

PUBLIC COURSES
1. Course Name
2. Course Name
3. Course Name

25. Course Name


Your Name
City, County of Residence

 
Once you finish your lists, email them to us at Northern Ohio Golf. We’ll reply confirming receipt.

HOT LIST Voting Polls

We’ve made nearly every public course in the region eligible for the five HOT LIST categories, since these votes are even more subjective than the Top 25 lists. Each Hot List poll is posted on its own page, so click each link listed below to vote:

BEST GREENS >

BEST OVERALL COURSE CONDITIONS >

BEST LAYOUT/ARCHITECTURE >

BEST GOLF VALUE FOR THE MONEY >

BEST GOLF FUN DAY >

About the Voting and Results

Northern Ohio Golf readers are eligible to submit just one vote for each list and category. The voting ends on Feb 28th at 11p. Then in early March, we’ll tabulate all of the votes then unveil each of our Top 25 lists plus the HOT LIST winners for 2021. We can’t wait to see what you pick!
