Detailed description of Sleepy Hollow Golf Course

Sleepy Hollow Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Brecksville, Ohio. Sleepy Hollow is one of eight courses that are a part of the Cleveland Metroparks system.

Sleepy Hollow golf course first opened for play in 1925. The course was designed by Stanley Thompson.

With its spectacular views of the Cuyahoga River Valley and classic layout, Sleepy Hollow Golf Course ranks as one of the great golf challenges in Cleveland. Think tough when you think of Sleepy Hollow. The course has deep ravines which can come into play on its 13 holes. The 64 sand bunkers and large mature overhanging trees are also a threat. Not as obvious, but still treacherous, are the small greens.

When first opened in 1925 the course was a private country club. The land was leased from Cleveland Metroparks. The course opened to public play in 1963.

The Scottish links influence can be seen throughout the course. Both nine holes go out, turn around and come back. The early holes on both nines play downhill and down the prevailing wind, therefore seeming shorter than the yardage indicates. The incoming holes play uphill and into the wind, and can play surprisingly long. Some golfers have noted the huge greens on holes #2 and #12 among the other 16 small greens. Those were at one time double greens which was not an uncommon practice during the period the course was designed.

It would be hard to find another course where so many holes are praised for their aesthetic beauty as well as playability. #2 is an impressive par 3 and with the tees back, it's a driver tee shot for all but the longest of hitters. #3, a par-4 stretches 495 yards from the back tee position.

The back nine is shorter and more strategic. It features #14, a short par 5 and #17, a short par 4 which are both classic risk/reward holes!

Overall a great course. Greens roll fast with not many straight lines. If I had to add any negative comments is that the practice greens are not the best as they are severely sloped making practicing not very useful.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level
