Come to Good Park
Located in West Akron, a mere three miles from Downtown Akron and sharing a border with interstate 77, Good Park Golf Course is conveniently located for your golfing needs. Designed in 1924 by Bertie Wey, the very same course architect of the famed Firestone South, J.E. Good Park (know simply as “The Park” by the locals) is the ideal place to challenge your golfing skills. The Park’s trademark is the 180 acres of tree-lined fairways and well-placed bunkers, which put a premium on shot accuracy rather than being a drivers’ paradise. Your long irons and hybrid clubs will get a work out. Once on the green, the golfer will find true and fair putts that can become very difficult if you find yourself above the hole. Easy to walk with subtle hills and short distance from greens to tees, The Park is perfect for the healthy golfer looking to get in a little exercise. The Pro Shop, while small, is filled with the golfer’s essentials to make your round pleasurable and plenty of logo hats to show your friends you have played the best. Following your round enjoy a cool beverage on the deck overlooking the 9th green or head upstairs to the wonderful Edgar’s Bar and Restaurant and enjoy a meal from the beautiful patio.
