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.

Deer Run Golf Course -- One of the best courses in the area
Review by: Bob M This course is a very mature course with a scorable front 9. The back nine is more diffecult to score on, but it can be done if you take some chances. This course is definatly one of the better courses within a fifty mile radius. 5 lakes come into play not three and there is a large creek that runs through the middle of the entire course. The entire course was carved out of the timber so it is very mature. Over all a good course for a small town.
