A nice combination of scoring opportunities and long challenges. A reachable par 5. A demanding and long par 4. The rough was thick enough to present problems advancing the ball. A fun and affordable day on the links

Played at 11:15 on a Thursday. The front nine took 2 hours 20 minutes. Waited on every shot at times 5 minutes. Saw a ranger who appeared to be looking for balls in the trees - not pace of play. This seems to be the MO of many of the Metro Park Courses.

If you have the patience to wait on most shots this is a fun course. If you like a quick pace of play avoid this course.

They strategically placed their hot deal right behind a high school match. Played the front in 3 hours and 15 minutes. Rangers statement to us on 2 tee: “It’s going to be a long day.” What a way to start the round. Playing in over 6 hours is just not worth playing at all. GolfNow is great, but courses like this make it dangerous.

Rough was long and unforgiving when we played. I never mind that because there is a solution to that problem. Stay out of the rough. Shawnee is a Cleveland Metropark course, they are always in great shape. Played on a Tuesday. Pace of play was great. Might not be that way in the weekends, but this course is definitely a good challenge and worth playing a couple of times a year.

Overall the course was in very nice shape. It is on the short side, with big, fast greens, and hardly any bunkers. I hadn't played this course since high school (20ish years ago) and I was very surprised. While not overly difficult, minus a few tee shots that need to be placed, and holes 11 & 12, this is an easier course, but the conditions were very nice. Pace of play was just fine for a Saturday morning too. I would play again, easy to walk.

I'm from Chicago live here now and I enjoy playing courses with hills because Illinois is flat. The greens are faster than a lot of local courses.

The overall shape of the course is nice and 10 minutes from my house and the practice facility is okay!

I love this course for the price. Metroparks always does a good job maintaining the fairways and greens. Staff is always friendly and helpful. A few rough spots here and there on the course but other than that the nines are pretty straightforward. Forgiving course, so breaking 80 should be attainable, even from the back tees.

I've been playing this course for 25 years and have never seen it this nice. The grounds crew is doing an amazing job, greens are fast and true. The course isn't overly difficult but it's a good challenge and great value even at full price which we were lucky enough not to pay. Metroparks golf has come a long way. Some of the best public course greens in Cleveland.
