The 18-hole course at The Golf Club of Bucyrus fans out over a rolling expanse of leafy terrain that’s home to ravines, lakes, and one winding river. Originally established by a group of local businessmen in 1925, it remained a nine-hole course for nearly 70 years, until architect Barry Serrafin wove nine more holes into the mix in 1992. After finishing a round and the ceremonial cutting down of the 18th pin flag, players can set down their sticks and head to the Bogey Grill, where they’ll find a stocked bar and a back porch set up with dining tables and rocking chairs.

Green Acres Golf Course presents a relatively short gauntlet of six par 4s and 12 par 3s for 3,746 yards of pristine golf. The length and lack of par 5s make the course ideal for working on putting on the slick greens and precision on short iron approaches. The course superintendents work tirelessly to keep the course in optimal condition, aiming to please all golfers from beginners to the ghosts of Scottish shepherds looking to discover the latest in walking-staff technology.
