Nice metro parks course

If had been awhile since I played Shawnee. The course had switched nines a couple years ago. The new front nine did speed up play but we played the back nine first. We got done in an hour and fifteen minutes minutes. We had to wait on the front nine but play did move rather quickly with mostly twosomes. The greens were aerated. I thought the rates might be lower considering the greens but they weren’t. Also in all it was a fun day.

Great round

The course was i great shape from tee to green. I found the fairway in excellent condition and the roughs full and easy to play out of. The greens had just be aerated but still were still running true. A couple of tee boxes were a little rough but still not bad. I would like to play this course again this year.

Course was in great shape, except for the greens, they were recently aerated. When booking a starting time online, whichever golf app you are using, it should be noted by the course if the greens are being or have recently been aerated. That should be a standard/ requirement.

Shawnee is a good component of the Metroparks group. it does need some TLC, especially as regards some of the trees which are starting to overhang the fairways and greens more than was intended, and they are hindering grass growth in some places where there should be grass. But overall I enjoy the variety of holes, the greens and fairways are reliably in good shape

One of the Best in NE Ohio

Shawnee Hills has come along very nicely over the past few years. It is well taken care of from tee to green. Highly recommend this course for all skill levels!

Horrible Experience

If you like a SHORT DOG TRACK.... With no PAVED cart paths and UNFRIENDLY STAFF then this is the place for you.

My “back” gave out on the 8th hole and had to sadly not finish my round. But I had paid for 18 holes. So I proceed to hit the clubhouse where I thought a 9 hole rain check would easily be obtained. 1st I’m told I can’t be served without a MASK. Didn’t need a MASK when I paid them for 18 holes of Golf (IRONIC). Lady said I could only get a rain check for 9 holes if it was RAINING.

JUST BAD BUSINESS IN MY OPINION.

Unfriendly

Good luck if you play there.

They need a ranger

The course was in nice shape. I was paired up with another person and we both had an enjoyable round. This is the second time in a row that the round took way too long to play because of a group two in front of us that was not keeping pace. I tried calling in to the clubhouse and after 20 minutes trying to get someone to pick up the phone, I relayed my concerns to them and asked that they send a ranger to get the group to play faster. They said they would mention it to the starter, which does no good since they never sent anyone out.

Played 18 on a Saturday afternoon

Pace of play was great, had starters for the front & back 9 keeping tabs as well as a drink cart we saw several times. Course was in good shape some brown spots in the rough & a few tee boxes torn up. On Metroparks courses a consistent frustration is divots on the green- not nearly as bad here.
