Besides the university, several easy daytrips beckon just minutes from the hotel, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame in nearby Canton and the Kent Bog State Nature Preserve, where visitors can walk a boardwalk trail through a dense strand of tamarack trees whispering juicy gossip from the Ice Age.

Out on the first tee at Arrowhead Golf Club, players stand on the precipice of an 18-hole gauntlet formed by heavily wooded fairways, green-guarding bunkers, and hero-minting water carries. One make-or-break shot arrives as early as the second hole?s approach shot, where anything short of the peninsula green lands in the water, anything long winds up among the evergreens, and anything too high disintegrates upon atmospheric reentry. The premium on strategic shot-making exists throughout the rest of the course as well, most notably on the 200-yard tee shot on the par 10th, the treacherous carry over the sand moat on the 15th green, and around the severe dogleg turn on 16. Upon successful completion of their round, players can dine in the club?s grillroom, where they?ll find a menu stuffed with appetizers, sandwiches, and cold drinks.
Course at a Glance:
Formerly a private course for more than 50 years, Oakview Golf Club now welcomes the public to take on its lengthy, 6,098-yard layout. The course nestled in Butler County features immaculate bentgrass fairways that veer through tree lines of a dense forest. The golf course demands that golfers not only demonstrate distance and control but also the ability to look both ways when crossing the street in search of a wayward tee shot or a pet headcover that has run away. The club's strong membership base keeps greens buzzing with local loyalists well into the season.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Total length of 6,098 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.4 from the back tees * Course slope of 124 from the back tees
