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.

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.
