Avonís Red Tail Golf Club

With the opening of the clubís second nine last April, Red Tail Golf Club in Avon is one of the best bets for golfers visiting Cleveland. Now, a year later, the course has been augmented by a 19,500-square-foot clubhouse. The courseís developer, Carnegie Management, has also begun selling lots alongside the fairways of the daily-fee facility.

Designed by Robert von Hagge, the par-72, links-style track stretches 7,007 yards from the tips. The well-mounded fairways boast generous landing areas, but players must contend with undulating, well-guarded greens.

The new clubhouse, designed by Bob Corna, features a dining room and grill, deck, lounge, banquet facilities, indoor play area for children, fitness center, locker room, and pro shop. Slated to be completed by Labor Day 2001 are a swimming pool and two tennis courts. For a tee time at Red Tail Golf Club, call 440/327-1277.
