    I don't play public courses as much as I used too, but I have relatives in Columbus Ohio and used to visit often, and remember my grandfather taking me to this course way back in the 1970s and played it many times after that, always thought it was a bit of a hidden gem:

    Course Name: Denison Golf Club (used to be called Granville GC IIRC)
    City, State: Granville, OH
    Price Range: looks like $32 in the afternoon, 48 before noon, weekends 5-10$ more
    Course Website: https://www.denisongolfclub.com/golf-course/
    A brief description of why you think it's a hidden gem (and please include a photo if you have one!): An old Donald Ross course, I remember it being a pretty good example of Ross' style, it looks like Denison Univerity now owns it. Here is a tour of the course https://www.denisongolfclub.com/course-tour/

    I just remember it being very fun to play, not overly long, but reviews I see are it still is nice and in good shape. Any central Ohio WRX'ers played here recently?

    Monroe Country Club in Monroe, NC. Its public. Usually is $45 or less. Always in excellent condition. Probably is, its not the most convenient course to get to if you live in Charlotte.

    * Course Name: Apple Valley Golf Club

    • City, State: Howard, OH

    • Price Range: $29-45 Weekday vs Weekend

    • Course Website: https://www.applevalleygolfcourse.com/

    • A brief description of why you think it's a hidden gem (and please include a photo if you have one!):

    • The course condition compared to cost is just crazy. Perfect bent fairways and greens. Always in incredible shape, smooth fast greens.

      I really need to play Apple Valley before I leave the area.

    Wow, the first picture I was thinking that place needs some renovation to thin out those trees but then that second picture stole my heart, what a perfectly framed Par 3. I travel to Ohio often and may have to look up this place if I am close.

    Corballis Links in Donabate Ireland about 20 minutes outside of Dublin City Centre is a true links that costs 20 Euro. It's one of the best values in Ireland. The course has 10 par 4's, 7 par 3's and one par 5. For a course with 7 par 3's it has great variety and requires accuracy off the tee when the wind is up.

    Colonial Terrace, Ocean Township. It's a fun little par 35 9 hole course in my town. As a resident, you can play 9 or 18 for under $40 with a cart. Presents a nice challenge and you get your 10th time free once you play 9 times.

    I love Apple, by far purest course you'll play for under $50. The greens and fairways are always immaculate.
