Absolutely Nice

Course is in the best shape I've ever seen it, and that's saying a lot since it's always in great shape. Greens were as perfect as any greens I've played all year. Staff was super nice.

Great condition

I do not usually golf in the Cleveland area so I am not aware of typical course conditions this time of year, but the tee boxes and greens were plush and fairways in good shape.
Staff were friendly and pace of play was 4 hrs, although I understand rounds can be 5 hrs when busy. Some holes are narrow so accuracy is required. Nice elevation changes on the back nine.

Slow pace this round

Fortunately I was paired up with some interesting guys which helped with the 10 minutes wasted on the tee box. 5 hours and 10 minutes today. There was one hole in which 4 groups were on the same whole. 2 from other fairway, 1 on green and one from our hole.

Great game play after storm

I like this course. I played this course several times, especially when I first started playing golf a few years ago spraying balls all over the place. Now, I still really like this course. It’s not difficult for the most part, fairly wide open, but with surprising holes that can add some challenge. While not as nice as Manikiki, this Metroparks course is well maintained with nice vistas. The staff are friendly and it has a nice driving range as well. I was surprised that after the really bad storm that dropped inches of water in a couple of hours, with the exception of hole 3, the course had drained really well.

Good course

Tough course. It’s a Cleveland Metropark course so two things:
1) course is going to be in great shape.
2) course is going to be crowded. We were waiting on every shot the front 9. Threesome in front bailed out after 9, so the back opened up.

Shawnee rules!¡!

Shawnee is my favorite course in the Greater Cleveland area. It doesn’t get the attention of Sleepy Hollow or Manakiki but it is a great layout surrounded by parklands.

Amazing Greens

Like most Metroparks courses, Shawnee Hills boasts an awesome practice facility. I was also very satisfied with the greens and fairway condition! The layout isn’t that great, but for $42 it’s a solid track!

The greens compare with those at private clubs!

I have enjoyed playing Shawnee Hills this season. The greens have improved significantly making the course a better test of the game. The staff is friendly and I look forward to playing here again soon!

Ify, ify for my situation

Course was in good shape as always. The 2 other golfers in the package were friendly. So all in all it was okay.

For seniors the specials are not that great a deal. I saved $1.00. But, I belong to our metro course program & when I play one of there courses I earn 1 points for every dollar spent. By paying thru Golfnow I lost $6..00.. Because I paid for two golfers thru you.

Pretty Good

While the course is not long the staff at Shawnee has used the Metroparks money to turn this into a very nice little course. Nothing penal about the rough and only 3-4 actually difficult holes. The important thing is to actually leave the driver in the bag sometimes. The greens were fast and smooth, but somewhat inconsistent with break. Pace was on the slow side at 5 hours. A bit of an ego builder but conditions are far superior to your normal one.

Shawnee

The Big Met of the east side. Aside from teeing off 15 minutes late because they try and cram walk-ups in on a busy morning this was a decent round. Greens in great shape, rough and fairways OK. Pace was better than normal. After the first tee shenanigans, good day
