Founded in 1970, Windmill Lakes Golf Club is annually ranked as one of the best courses in the state of Ohio. Located in Ravenna, about 45 minutes southeast of Cleveland and six miles east of the Kent State University campus, it is the home course for the Kent State Golden Flashes Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams.
The 6,936-yard par-70 layout offers many challenges while testing every facet of a player’s game.
The course features large, undulating greens with more than 40 sand traps and five lakes. With only two par-fives in play, Windmill Lakes showcases several long par-fours that require accurate driving and strong long iron play.
Windmill Lakes has been the site for numerous amateur and professional events since its opening. We have hosted to the USGA Public Links Sectional Qualifier and were the former home to the FirstEnergy (formerly Cobra) Men’s Collegiate Tournament every other year. The 1984 and 1993 Mid-American Conference Men’s Golf Championships were held at Windmill Lakes. We currently host the Northern Ohio Golf Association’s premier tournament, the Northeast Ohio Amateur Championship.
