Spring has arrived, and unfortunately so has the rain. However, if you're a fan of the the links, your playgrounds are now open. The constant struggle of trying to shoot par or grabbing your first eagle may still be a challenge in this weather, but don't let a little sprinkle defeat you.

Mastick Woods Golf Course
19900 Puritas Ave.

The golf course that embraces non-golfers and beginners. Accept the duck hook (low left hook) shots as you power swing through the Cleveland drizzle. If golfing isn't your style, than try out their FootGolf. Similar to regular golf, but bigger balls and bigger holes. Also available is concessions at the Eagles Nest, and of course the clubhouse to get you out of severe rain and into a bottle of suds. For more information click here.

Little Met Golf Course
18599 Old Lorain Rd.

Feel big on the Metroparks very first golf course. With great value for your nine holes you can shoot a double bogey and still come out feeling good. The casual water on the course will let you move your ball wherever you want without penalty. A perfect excuse for your duff (bad shot), and an even better one for your par attempt. Also check out The Fairway Grille to celebrate with a cold one. For more information click here.

Washington Golf Course
3841 Washington Park Blvd., Newburgh Heights

A great course to make the green on your drives. This nine-hole, par-29 course can turn an impure shot into the one you need. With these current wet condition your hot shots are now the perfect shots, as a little rain can do the golf ball some good.  For more information click here.

Big Met Golf Course
4811 Valley Parkway, Fairview Park

This 18-hole course has a blend of beauty, as well as playability. However, when the rain is watering down the fairway, that's when your worm burner shots come to play. A shot in which the ball never rises off the ground. Wet fairways can do that, but maybe you can hit the longest worm burner shot on your way to par. Find your stroke, and find more information here.

Shawnee Hills Golf Course
18753 Egbert Rd., Bedford

A beautiful and versatile golf course that offers 18-holes, as well as nine-hole par 3 course. When the sun decides to shine, and the weather warms up a little bit more, try out their 18-holes that'll challenge your game with hills, water hazards, and a 469 yard uphill par 5 hole. Right now unfortunately, rain is in our near future. Feel the mist on your arms as you slice and skull your shots. Playing in the sunshine is the preferred norm, but dare to be different and respectively create your own fun. For more information click here.
