    @michaelcoyote: Four Seasons out east is a driving range where you can schedule lessons. It seems like they do a pretty thorough job from what I’ve observed. Not a huge fan of the driving range itself, but it’s the closest one to me.

    Hidden Valley GC in Delaware is a great starting place.

    It’s 8 par 3’s and one par 4. Quick, cheap rounds.

    Blacklick green course. Mostly par 3s and par 4s. Enjoy the round!

    Since I am assuming everyone posting on here golfs, I try and go at least twice a week around 7:00 AM to Wilson, Raymond or Mentel. Always game to play with new people.
    We’re also going to host a Tigertree “You’re A Man Now, Dress Like It” golf outing sometime during the summer.

    Wish I could play in the AM, but there’s no hope of that unless it’s for business. I might be interested in the outing this summer.

    Sounds awesome! I’d totally be in for this. I’m so tired of seeing grown men dressed like 5 year-olds out on the course. Lemme know if you need any help organizing.

    It’s actually more about that than the actual golf. “You’re a man now, dress like it,” is a reoccurring section on the Tigertree blog. I am (if you have read anything clothing related I have written here) a big fan of dressing appropriately for the situation. We’re hoping to get some of our lines to hook us up with some give-aways, we’ll have Tigertree polos for all the golfers, and a parking lot party after.

    Great suggestions on this thread. I was thinking about going out sometime this week and am a first time golfer. Any other good cheap starter golf courses out there?

    Really, the Wilson Rd 9 holer is the best beginner’s course… with Raymond being next. It’s been a while, but I think Bolton Field is a nice wide course as well.

    I really need to play more this summer. I haven’t had the clubs out in almost 2 years. So wrong.

    As a beginning golfer myself, I would def. agree that Wilson road is a great course for that. Last summer I tried to play it at least once a week. I played most of the city courses last year. Airport is pretty good too, and more of a “real” golf course (more par 4’s and 5’s, 18 holes). Courses that frustrated me were Mentel and the back 9 at Champion which just totally kicked my ass. I like Phoenix a lot too, but it is def. a hard course for me. Pretty nice for how affordable it is though.

    I’d say Turnberry in Pickerington. It’s very nice, and full of par 3’s.

    The Landings at Rickenbacker is a good one to learn on. Fairly easy course, very cheap, and never crowded.

    Another good beginners course is Bridgeview, a nine-hole course owned by Columbus State. Inexpensive, not too difficult, and interesting layout.
