The greens are not your average Nicklaus Signature greens, as Jack didn't build these greens with much angulation as you normally see with his courses. Even though the putting surfaces are fairly flat, they're very difficult to read and usually have less break than you initially read. If you factor all this in with normal speeds of 11-12 and perfectly maintained condition, it's easy to see why Barrington's greens are continually among the best in the area.
The course layout at Barrington Golf Club is one of the best and very friendly to players of all levels. With vast wide fairways and generous landing areas, you don't have to be perfect with your tee shot to have an open 2nd shot to the green. A par 72, Barrington has a great mix of holes that you won't get tired of playing on a daily basis. The par 3's require a good tee shot to set yourself up for a par or birdie. The par 4's are very fair and have a variety of
left-to-right and right-to-left doglegs that don't favor one type of player. Our par 5's are some of the best around with regards to their layout. It doesn't matter if your tee shot is long enough. These holes offer great risk and reward on your second or third shot.
The Practice Facility at Barrington Golf Club is one of the largest in the Cleveland area, with teeing sections on both ends. Members and Guests utilize the enormous south tee, while the north tee is used for instruction, clinics, or special events. A short game practice area is located next to the south tee. It is equipped with fairway and greenside bunkers as well as two great chipping/pitching greens to work on your short shots.
