Golf is popular throughout the Cleveland metro. There are almost 20 public courses within Cuyahoga County and many more in the neighboring regions. Within Westlake, golfers may choose from Hilliard Lakes Golf Club, Westlake Meadowood Golf Course, or the private Lakewood Country Club. The very popular Meadowood facility features an 18-hole executive course and a nine-hole regulation course. The private Lakewood course is the only one in the state designed by A.W. Tillinghast, one of the founders of the PGA.
While Westlake residents may stay local for youth sports programs, community social groups and golf, a wider variety of recreational and cultural activities are available in nearby Cleveland. With professional sports, a strong arts culture and gorgeous parklands, Cleveland offers something for almost everyone. Sports fans will enjoy the opportunity for live NBA and MLB action, with Cleveland’s Cavaliers and Indians. Those interested in history and culture will appreciate Cleveland’s many museums, including Canton Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Natural History, African American Museum, Butler Institute of American Art, Museum of Contemporary Art and many more.
Those who like to stay active will want to make a few trips to one of Cleveland’s Metroparks. The Bradley Woods Reservation, for example, features trails for hiking and cross-country skiing, plus fishing ponds, picnic areas and a playground for children. The site is also a fascinating one to explore; the reservation is actually a swamp forest created by a sandstone base over 350 million years old. The landscape, accented with yellow birches and red maples is both colorful and diverse.
Westlake temperatures range from January lows in the high-teens to July highs in the low-80s. Annual precipitation averages just less than 40 inches, and this is spread throughout the year. The summer months see more sunshine and sometimes more extreme changes in the weather such as short, but heavy showers. Snowfall is common December through February.
