Chardon Lakes is Fun to Play in Autumn
The greens are in great shape and still quick for this time of the year.
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.
Course is in excellent condition, starting to feel like it:"s like my home course, Hole 17 is a tough hole, but fun to play
Very nice course
Everything was perfect. Staff is friendly, course in great condition, pace good, and great weather
Course as always was pristine,just need some real sand in the bunkers,current stuff is hardpan and loaded with stones.
Overall course is in great condition. Greens are fast and you need to stay below the hole. Enjoyed playing here and will be back.
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.
First time playing this course-the staff was friendly-the tees greens fairways and sand traps were very good-the course layout was challenging-we played the front and back 9's in 2 hours each on a Saturday morning-will be back a number of times this year-thanks

Out of the way gem
Located 60 min east of Downtown Cleveland (though only 30-40 min from my house). Stonewater, Manakiki, & Pineridge are all just 15 min from me but I'll take the additional time & gas to go to Chardon. The staff is friendly and informative and you don't spend more than 2 minutes checking in at pro-shop or grabbing beverages & food. Starter keeps the pace of play moving. There's plenty of challenge with the woods, creeks and ponds. Course is in great shape with lush grass well maintained in the fairway and rough is long enough to challenge but not frustrate. Sand traps not overly deep with sand but never hard as dirt. Greens are healthy. Do yourself a favor and try the course and follow it with a great lunch, dinner or just cocktails on the large patio at Bass Lake Inn just next door.
Put the Senior Tees back where they were!
First of all, put the senior tees back where they used to be. It completely changed the course for us. We will check with you on that next time before making a tee time. They were just too far back to be any fun.
We played with a bunch of new people who had never been there, and I kept asking where are the ”Lakes”. They have renamed your course Chardon “No” Lakes.
Play the course often. It’s a nice layout and normally in good shape
Pin placement and inconsistent green speed made some of the greens laughable
It took forever to play. Over an hour and a half to play the first 4 holes. I am sure the amusement park greens didn’t help but never saw a ranger trying to move people along. I also saw a group of 6 but maybe they paired up because it was so slow. Who knows.
I like the place I will go back but it was disappointing
Worth my drive and then some
Live on the westside, but wanted to try a new course and since it was rainy, this one was wide open on GolfNow.
Played as a single from the back tees and it was a challenge. Despite constant rain, the course was firm in most places and greens were receptive but rolled quick and true. With dry weather, you can tell the greens will be fast. Used GPS to account for never playing before and lots of blind shots.
Par 3s are challenging in length (185-220 uphill). Par 4s were largely interesting except for a few - but I appreciate straight and 350 off the first tee to get some swings in. Range is 1 min offsite.
Overall - loved my round. Lots to consider on this course and it sure wasn't an easy one. Tips play long on a lot of holes and I used a lot of long irons in my round. Pleasant change, worth the hour drive, would be back.
