Cleveland Golf Books

Cleveland Golfer's Bible - 5th Edition
By John H. Tidyman
Gray & Company 2002

This updated and revised book is aptly named - it is the Bible for golfers in the Cleveland area.

It begins with a map showing the location of the 149 courses described inside. Then the locations are further mapped from Far West to West, Far East to East and Southeast, Southwest, South and Far South.

The courses are broken down into Public 18 holes or more, Public 9 hole and Par 3s, Private and Ranges. Each course listing has the address, phone and directions as well as a ranking for cost and difficulty.

Tidyman lists yardage from the back, middle and forward tees and gives details on specials, leagues, the clubhouse, practice facilities, hours - everything you need to know.

He then writes a description of the course along with a Highlights section featuring special holes for example.

Throughout the book he will throw in some Tidyman's Tidbits that are lists such as "Best Conditioned Courses" and "Stuff every public course should offer".

You will also find the occasional Slices sections which feature brief essays on topics like "Country Clubs", "MacSmith Golf" and "Why I love playing golf with women."

If you are tired of playing the same few courses and always wondered what other options were available to you, this is the book for you.

Golf Getaways from Cleveland
By John H. Tidyman
Gray & Company 2002

As we settle into winter it's nice to start planning some golf trips to remind us that it won't always be dark and cold outside.

For most of us, golf vacations to Florida or Myrtle Beach aren't something we can do very often. But, as Tidyman tells us, "you can hop in the car and enjoy one of 50 resort-quality golf courses just 1-4 hours from home."

The trips are broken down to within Ohio, then other states and finally Canada. Besides the expected contact information you will also see the cost, drive time, where to stay and items of interest nearby. That info can turn it into a family trip and maybe get you some extra weekends on the links.

You can even use the book to plan golf outings depending on your situation - couples who golf together (or not), business conferences, family reunions, etc.

The majority of the descriptions is about the golf at these 50 destinations though Tidyman covers the accommodations and restaurants as well.
