Miami Valley. That’s your huckleberry for nobody has ever heard of it.
Everybody on this website has heard of Moraine, which means that nobody has heard of it.Kind of like Lin-Manuel Miranda's joke about how well-known he is in the first line of his SNL intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsupmN90wBkBut for sure, nobody has heard of Miami Valley.As a longtime Ohio resident, and a Columbus resident from 1993-2001 (undergrad plus my first four years of work) now living in Grand Rapids MI, good to have you Drew. I never played Worthington Hills though I do think I attended a dinner or two there. Now THAT's a course nobody has heard of, what can you tell us about it?
Hi All,I'm going to follow Drew's lead and introduce myself as a new member. As a long time reader of the GCA threads, it's a privilege to be invited in by Ran. My knowledge and understanding of golf architecture and history has been enriched immeasurably by the GCA crew. I am forever thankful as this has directly translated to increasing my enjoyment of both golf and life. Recently, McKellar Magazine was kind enough to publish my first attempt at golf writing. It's a war story about the origin and building of what is now Royal Hague. I'm hopeful that I will have the opportunity to tell additional golf stories in the future.In the meantime, I will continue to learn from everyone on GCA and perhaps tee it up with some of you in the future.Steve ZivinWilmette, IL
I told Ran that Moraine in Dayton is the best course that no one has ever heard of and that the European Club is my favorite 20-hole golf course.
Are we to assume then that The European Club is the only 20-hole golf course you’ve played?Because if so, that would also make it the worst one you’ve played…
Drew,Welcome.Caddying at Greenbriar must have been quite the challenge as it's not exactly a walking-friendly routing. I've played there in a few charity events for my son's old school (with carts!). The clubhouse is currently undergoing a major renovation and they just added the requisite pickle ball courts.David

Drew - this is a totally random question but are you - or were you - the lacrosse coach at Worthington Kilbourne? I didn't play lacrosse nor do I follow it - but I just looked you up on LinkedIn (connection request forthcoming!) and think I found you. If that is in fact you nice work with your coaching, some great accomplishments there! I ask because I'm a Columbus native now living in California, but I try to come back often and it would be great to play some golf with you. I grew up playing at the OSU courses. A guy I went to high school with (Amos Allison) is the head tennis pro at Worthington Hills -- great guy. Not sure if you or any family member plays tennis. Looks like a great club.
