Tam Golf Course


Featured Golf Course Review:
Tam Golf Course -- Nice little course
Review by: RT Before the village of Niles took over the course (I believe in the late 60's) this was once Tam O' Shanter Country Club of PGA fame. Unfortunatly the village only bought one part of the parcel of land which contained the original clubhouse and a few of the holes (the majority of the holes were located south of Howard Street now an industrial area). The course is kept in very nice shape and has a couple of the old greens still remaining. The best hole (and one of the originals) is the par 3 sixth. A branch of the river winds up the left side of the green while a large deep sand trap guards the right. The only glaring downside to this course is that every fairway but one, parrellels the other. You keep going back and forth.

Heather Ridge Golf Course -- Sporty
Review by: Roger Sears Heather Ridge Golf course is one of the nicer 9 hole courses for a reasonable price. There is something for everyone, and it is especially friendly to those learning to play the game. It has its share of difficult hazards, water and variety. The greens are well kept and true. I highly recommend it for a pleasant golf experience that is not overly intimidating.
