Q&A with Doug Dowell, Teacher

What makes your business stand out?

Golf lessons are based upon the students experience, physical capabilities, equipment, and ability to practice. There is not one golf swing for everyone. We all have our own swing that we have developed over time. Video is available and can be used. Scheduling is very easy and can be done almost anytime.

What inspired you or the owner (if that?s not you) to start or run this business?

Love of the game of golf and the desire to introduce as many people as possible to a lifetime of enjoyment. Also, the immediate gratification that one gets from teaching and sharing like experiences.

What?s your favorite part about your job?

Interaction with all types of people and sharing their enjoyment in learning the game of golf.

The 9-hole, par-three course at Mulligan Springs, situated in Portage County, challenges, but also subdues, golfers with reflective ponds and mini waterfalls that ripple across rocky structures. Here, the casual, uncrowded atmosphere is especially inviting to novice golfers, who can avoid the air of intimidation and ball washers filled with molasses that come with playing on more difficult courses. As abundant as they are out on the links, Mulligan Springs' modest vibes stretch to its clubhouse area, which features an outdoor patio for relaxing after rounds.

A tricky aspect of the game of golf – and one that amateurs are often slow to recognize – is the notion that all misses aren’t created equal. This becomes starkly apparent with shots into the green, from mid-iron approaches down to greenside chips. Often, beginners give in to the temptation to hit directly at the hole, thinking that it will leave them with the shortest possible putt. While there are certainly situations when going directly at the flagstick is the right decision, they’d be much better off remembering to take into account the other factors at play, such as the layout of the green, where the pin is positioned upon it, and whether or not a lemur’s head is sticking out of the cup. With a little forethought and execution, they should be able to set themselves up perfectly for the next shot – usually a short uphill putt. Versus a downhill putt, uphill putts can be struck harder with little risk, making them less susceptible to lateral movement, more forgiving, and less likely to fly past the hole and settle on the opposite fringe.

Golfers will find themselves embroiled in this decision-making process numerous times throughout a round at Green Valley Golf Club, a rolling course tucked into the hills of Tuscarawas County. On just about all of the 18 undulating greens, stopping the ball on the downhill side of the pin is the correct move. If they succeed and sink their putts, players give themselves a good shot of posting a good score against the par of 72. And if they don’t, they can always eat away their post-round regrets with a hamburger, coney dog, or smoked sausage at the 19th Hole.

Stretched across nearly 6,000 yards in Kent, KSU's 18-hole, par 70 course features slick greens and quick playability, meaning golfers can easily fit rounds into their schedules. In 2014, the course experienced several upgrades. Its clubhouse was renovated, its practice green was expanded, and course-side trees were removed after posting notices of eviction to their bark didn't work. The effort primed the property not only for high-quality rounds of golf, but also for games of footgolf?a sport that fuses elements of soccer and golf.

Course at a Glance * 18-hole, par 70 course * Total of 5,810 yards * Four sets of tees per hole * Course rating of 66.3 from the tips * Course slope of 113 from the tips * Scorecard

Sculpted into the Ohio countryside in 1928, Maplecrest Golf Club’s course spans 6,312 yards of immaculate fairways that arch over gentle hilltops for a par 71 round. The club’s intrepid greenskeepers work hard to keep the course in pristine condition, including maintaining an onsite greenhouse where they grow all the course’s plants, trees, flowers, and sand-trap rakes before incorporating them into the layout. Throughout the course, fairways tunnel through imposing tree lines, so players should consider making a preround stop at the club’s driving range or bribing the oldest oak in their neighborhood for favorable treatment from its fellow timbers.

Golfers forage for pars and birdies among well maintained fairways and pesky rough as they make their way through a round at Valley Golf Club. The club's nine-hole layout leads players past a smattering of trees that divide fairways and a few small ponds, but not a single bunker for scrawling thank-you notes to course superintendents. The course's short length makes it accessible to all levels of golfer, whether seasoned veterans working on short game fundamentals or beginners still learning the basics.
