Visit Canton for a Great Golf Getaway
Golf by day and explore Stark County's inviting food, drink and fun options once evening falls.
Canton, the home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, is a great stop for golf groups. Many hotel partners in the area offer stay-and-play packages, including full-service planning with convenient per-person pricing, tee-time reservations, group cookouts and other amenities.
Choose from a variety of quality public courses, including favorites like The Quarry. In East Canton, play Clearview Golf Club. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, recognized as the first, and to date only, golf course built, owned and operated by an African American. Opened in 1946 by William Powell, today it is run by his daughter Renee Powell, a golf trailblazer in her own right.
A variety of options await after a day on the course, from the region’s Hall of Fame Hops craft brew trail to Gervasi Vineyard’s distillery and cigar lounge, The Still House. Or head into the heart of the Hall of Fame City to enjoy the Downtown Outdoor Refreshment Area and visit Centennial Plaza. The world-class outdoor pavilion, restaurant and event space commemorates the 100th birthday of the NFL, founded in Canton in September 1920.
Plus, rain can’t spoil your game, thanks to options for indoor golf experiences and training facilities, such as 1899 Indoor Golf and Hershey Golf Co., as well as Topgolf Swing Suite, opening at Hall of Fame Village later this year. For more information, go to visitcanton.com.
