Bet you never thought you could find great golfing in Ohio's Amish Country?
Well, think again! There are several courses in our area, and they range from flat, simple courses for the beginner to highly rated and challenging courses.
Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast works with a couple of courses to offer Golf Packages to our guests. We have something for all budgets! Black Diamond Golf Course was rated one of the Top 25 Ohio Golf Courses in 2002 Golf Digest! They were nominated for America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses for 2003 Golf Digest. Have you ever played a Par 6 up to 720 yards? You can play 9 holes, 18 holes, or even play all day!
Fire Ridge Golf Course has 18 scenic rolling holes with superb playing conditions. It is located just a few miles from our B&B. It was built in 1930 and is a Par 72. It offers bluegrass fairways and large bent grass greens. You're going to love playing this course!
Other area golf courses include:
Oak Shadows Golf Club, New Philadelphia, Ohio
Hawks Nest Golf Club, Creston, Ohio
The Pines, Orrville, Ohio
Wilkshire Golf Club, Bolivar, Ohio
Zoar Village Golf Course, Zoar, Ohio
Just let us know when you want to come and how many rounds of golf you would like to play, and we will set everything up. For your convenience, we'll offer one package price for everything, and you won't have to worry about paying separately at the golf courses.
After a long day of golfing, come back to the Garden Gate Get-A-Way and relax around our evening campfire. When you are taking a break from golfing, let us set up a narrated, back roads tour of Amish Country, massages, or perhaps horseback riding is your thing!
