Encouraging all things Golf
Firestone Country Club, South Course, Akron, Ohio, USAFirestone still lights the fire for many golfers and is set to continue to do so for many more years to come.
Firestone is in Akron County and is very easy to factor in when playing the Penn Ohio Golf Trail, although not part of it.
Despite this atmospheric mist biting at our ankles, nothing else could dampen our spirits on the day we played.
This course had the type of bunkers others would aspire to - nice soft sand of such good, easy to play quality. An analogy that was shared by the fore caddy when questioned about the sand condition, he said, ‘the sand is less table salt and more Himalayan crystal salt’ Whichever way you look at it, the sand played consistently nicely.
Playing 18, a small plaque reminds us of Tiger Woods ‘Shot in the Dark’ 167 yard 8 iron at 825pm… That superb shot straight at the pin and an easy tap in, brings him the win, 11 ahead of the rest of the field at the NEC Invitational.
Raintree Golf Club, Akron, Ohio, USAThe greens were large and in amazing condition but, it has to be said the front nine didn’t inspire us, the fairways were patchy and seemed like they had seen better days. Or in contrast, the fairway grass was so long the ball didn’t roll and was thick enough to be problematic too.
Glad to say things did improve on the back nine, in fact it was as it it was a different course. But it seems that whilst you’re starting to win in one way, you get knocked down again in another - the highway was really noisy on the 13th - so much so, I had to shout for the microphone - ok I did exaggerate the shouting and caused lots of giggles, but it was a real shame that the constant drone spoilt such a great hole.
The 18th being probably one of the better holes on the course.
A slight dog leg right off the tee with water at the front and right of the green. A small stream dissected the fairway along its length, careful navigation to make the green in regulation is needed. The large shaded green was nestled in a sunken hollow. Such a nice closing hole.
The River Club, Johannesburg, South AfricaWe jumped at the chance to play this exclusive club which is open to visitors.
Once inside the grounds, a bit like the tardis, the area opened up leaving the houses behind in favour of crisp sways of green carefully edged with striking contrasting planting.
A distinctly playable and delightful course and one of the best condition courses we played in 2022, we’re delighted to show you the River Club.
