Better weather and OSU golfer Neal Shipley's great run in the Masters tournament might have you stoked to hit the links.

  • Here are three public courses to try, whether you're a duffer or a pro:

🙂 For beginners: Wilson Road Golf Course, 1900 Wilson Road.

  • This municipal course is cheap and features a simple, forgiving design — perfect for newcomers who don't want a long day on the course.

👍 For solid players: The Virtues Golf Club, 1 Long Drive, Nashport.

  • Located about an hour east of Columbus, Virtues is ranked the 16th best course in Ohio by Golf Digest.

💪 For total pros: Pine Hills Golf Club, 433 W. 130th St., Hinckley.

  • Hit the road and try this course about two hours northeast of Columbus, highlighted by our friends at Axios Cleveland as "an ideal blend of old school and new."
