Wowza!

Recommended by the staff at a nearby course that we also liked. This course is great. Super fast greens , even when wet. Strategic shot choices on most holes. I was glad we had the cheat sheet. 16 through 18 are a real challenge. We played Silver in wet conditions but would absolutely love to come back and try the tips in warm and dry conditions. Many of the back tees were from really cool places. Seemed like a much more expensive proposition than it was. . We'll be back!

Great Course

I play this course often. I really think it’s the best maintained public course in Northeast Ohio. It is always immaculate. Trees are trimmed, greens are smooth, carts work. Staff is over friendly, and always accommodating. Small snack bar, but the food is good.

Needs some work

Greens and fairways were in great shape. Rough was deep. Great pace of play, as I played by myself. Cart path have lots of potholes, if that is fixed the course would be 5 stars. Some areas as ground under repair, but were clearly marked. I would go back, golfnow rate was $12!

Wet course, but enjoyable

Course was wet, but greens and fairways were well kept. Rough was difficult because of height and wetness. Cart paths had so many potholes, it was almost dangerous. Course would be much prettier if paths were repaved. Was by myself, so played very fast

Fairways and tee boxes were excellent. Greens very inconsistent

When we checked in they told us greens would not be aerated until later this month.
Most of the greens on the front 9 were very fast but at least two had been aerated and a couple not cut. Most of the back nine greens were aerated and/or were not cut. It was very frustrating as one did not know what to expect when putting.

Fun course...poor pace of play.

Up here from FL. Joined a nice 3some. Starter was able to get us out early. Course is fun and fair. Minor issue with holes 6 and 7. Kind of 'shooting gallery' with players missing fairways onto other players. A bit dangerous. Pace of play is an issue. Took just over 5 hours to play. Never saw a ranger the whole time. Will play again, but need to prepare for a LONG round.
