Affordable Golf and Exciting Attractions


Two Ohio Cities Offer Vacation Fun for Everyone

Looking for a getaway where you can play golf and entertain the kids?  Both Medina and Elyria, Ohio offer exceptional, reasonably priced golf courses which don’t break the budget. Best of all – they are both conveniently located within a short drive from three well-known and popular attractions: the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the thrilling theme park, Cedar Point.

Whether you’re looking for a 9-hole executive or 36-hole championship layout, you’ll find over 40 public golf courses within 25 miles of Elyria (just west of Cleveland). One of the area’s most popular courses, Sweetbriar Golf & Pro Shop, was named a Golf Digest 2008/2009 Best Places to Play.

Medina (southwest of Cleveland) offers over 35 public golf courses within a 25- mile range. Shale Creek Golf Club, selected as GolfStyles Magazine’s 2007-2010 Ohio’s 100 Must Play Courses, features five sets of tees to accommodate golfers of all skill levels. At over 7000 yards from the tips, Shale Creek’s bent grass greens, tees and fairways wind through naturally rolling wooded terrain skirting lakes and streams for a unique golf experience!

So, as you make vacation plans, consider Medina and Elyria - small towns with lots of charm, surrounded by plentiful golf courses and attractions.  Visit to book tee times and check out special rates and promotions.
