Chardon Lakes is not going to disappoint. It has excellent fairways, well kept (and plentiful) sand traps, and challenging greens. You’re doing well if you two putt. The rates I paid online saved a bunch on green fees. Pace of play is great. Played 18 holes in a little over three hours on a Saturday afternoon. I have never felt rushed or had to wait much.

I went to play with my wife and son who was visiting from New York and likes to play golf when he visits. I payed for 3 nine hole rounds knowing that my wife would play very little but wanted to come along and we would need 2 carts. After teeing off on the first hole we were approached by a ranger and told that my son could not play without having his own clubs and that we would need to rent a set of clubs for him. I admit I was very irritated as we have played at 4 other local golf courses without my son having his own clubs without incident. I don't agree with the policy but understand why they have the policy. This occurred at 3 PM on labor day so the course was was not busy. So I went back to the clubhouse and was informed that it would cost $40 to rent the clubs for 9 holes. That I could not justify in any manner. Thats just too much. This isn't South Beach or Myrtle Beach. So I did not play but lost the $10 convenience fee paid to Golf Now. I very much like the course and will go there again. But I think that management should certainly review the policy and cost of renting clubs.

Thank you for choosing Chardon Lakes Golf Course. We appreciate your feedback and apologize for the miscommunication. Unfortunately, you were given the wrong rental price. It should have been $20 to rent clubs for 9 holes and you were given the 18 hole price by mistake. We do apologize for approaching you after the fact and if you were made to feel uncomfortable in any way.<br/> <br/> Sorry for the inconvenience in regards to the rental club policy but that has been a rule for a long time and we don’t lift it based on the number of players on the course. It speeds up play and we are very sensitive to pace of play at all times. We hope that you will return and we hope to make your next visit a more pleasant experience.

Played on the golf now rate. Very happy to play there for the cost. Usually over $50 on the weekend. A little pricey for the shape and pace of play at this course. Our experience was fantastic. Would always go back with the golf now rate.

Interesting layout and no two holes are the same. Provides the opportunity to hit every club in the bag. Fun course to play but the greens are extremely difficult due to severe sloping from back to front and inconsistency in speeds.
