Racoon International Golf Club may be a slightly misleading name for this place. Don't get me wrong, I really do drive 45 mintues each way at least a few times a month to get here for a mid-week round - even with gas prices skyhigh. You can afford to do that when a round of 18 holes including the cart is only $18. That's right. Eighteen Dollars!
The course does reflect the price and it is not quite as nice as some of the Columbus public tracks, but I far prefer the atmosphere at the Coon over Raymond Memorial or the Airport course. The staff is by far the friendliest I have encountered in the area, and while there are no bev-cart girls to bring you beers while playing they are more than happy to pack some brews in ice and get you a fresh one when you make the turn.
For those of you that think you can smack a golf ball you have to play here at least once, if only for the 17th hole - a 666 yard par 5. It's not often that after two killer golf shots you still find yourself reaching for a 6 iron just to reach the green.
