This is a Pete Dye Gem for good reason. Hit the ball well, don't get greedy you can score. Hit some loose shots, try to take advantage too much, you can make triple.

A Pete dye course that has been terribly overgrown with trees. A great risk reward hazard on #8 ruined by 5-10 trees being planted between the bunkers. The classic double hazard which is seen multiple times around the course. I’m sure it was once a good course but it is not worth what they charge and should stop claiming to be a “Pete Dye Masterpiece” if they aren’t dedicated to keeping his architectural intent. Get out the chainsaw and the course would get immensely better.

If you have 5 hours, go to Fowlers on the weekend, and get ready to wait every shot.

Great greens but rest of course was a bit choppy- bare spots, clumpy rough, and some of the green combo tees in horrible shape.

Course in great shape!! Greens rolling phenomenal for a public course. Only down side was the only ranger we saw never tried to speed anyone along. Just came over to tell us to fix our divots. 6 hour round and he was worried about divots. Which by the way we were fixing and pouring the sand mixture into the holes. Definitively treated us differently because we came thru GolfNow.

Great course if you have time. This was a Friday early afternoon and should have played faster.

This course demands accuracy. The greens were a bit slower than they have been in the past..which was actually nice since approaches were fairly easy to stick.. But if you're off target, you will pay dearly. Definitely in my top 3 northeast Ohio. A must play track.

Fowlers Mill remains one of the best public courses in northeast Ohio where there are plenty of good courses to choose from. The layout is challenging with lots of trees, elevation changes, plenty of strategic sand traps and water. The course has tees to challenge every level of golfer and give each level of golfer a chance to enjoy the course. The course was in excellent shape. The greens are fast, but not slippery fast, and true. Played mid-week and the pace of play was not great - it took 4 1/4 hours for our threesome to complete the round.

I've played the course a few times before when in the area to visit in-laws. Course has a diverse layout and the greens are smooth with a consistent roll. Unfortunately, the round played in just over 5 hours! We saw the beverage cart about 10 times during the round but NEVER saw a pace ranger. I will play again, but will prepare for a long day.

I have played here many times, Fowler's Mill is a fantastic course. Easily one of the top ten public courses in NEO. It is challenging course, that plays longer than the scorecard. The front seems to be the tougher of the two nines, holes 4 and 6 specifically are a challenge. This course can beat up on level of player, but is still a beautiful and fun course.

I got out on Saturday morning at 7am after it rained about an inch, from 5-6. Conditions were wet and soft considering, but great considering. Because of the rain delay and an event in the middle of the day, they allowed groups to go off both sides. Staff is always super friendly and helpful. Do your self a favor and get a yardage book for a dollar in the pro shop before you tee off, will help you navigate the many holes.

Some years ago I walked this popular and busy course on a rainy, windy day during my son's golf tournament . My visit there in June was vastly different weather wise as the air was still, the sun bright, and the humidity high. But the course was just as popular as the last time I had seen Fowler. This beautiful and challenging course was a delight in spite of the pace and the heat. For those who appreciate such things, the course is ranked for being environmentally friendly and sustainable. Promoting the growth of native plants along the course to reduce the amount of turfgrass maintenance and watering needs is one of the characteristic features of sustainable courses such as Fowler's Mill. Kudos to the course for efforts to practice better environmental stewardship for the welfare of the employees, golfers, and wildlife.
