Early morning play. Just beautiful. Greens well maintained. Fairways and Tee Boxes immaculate . Lots of great views!
Hopefully In Transition
My impression is Fowlers Mill is in the same transition that Little Mountain went through 3-4 years ago. The course was noticeably not maintained at its prior level. The greens were average at best and the course in average condition. A challenging course like this needs to be in good shape with good well maintained fairways and good greens. When that is not the case the course becomes challenging for reasons that have nothing to do with its makeup or layout. Let's hope they can move out of what appears to be a lack of expenditures and investment quickly.
So much potential!
Great layout & has potential to be a top course in the state but needs some serious attention. Club house is run down, cart paths & bunkers are in bad shape. Wish I had the money to buy this diamond in the rough
Pete Dye masterpiece is right
The lakes/river 18 was awesome. Absolutely amazing layout in NEO! I would play the maple 9 before as a great warm out 9. I’ll be back to enjoy this beauty!
Pete Dye Classic
Lucky to live only an hour away from Fowler’s Mill Golf Course. Just like to say that we are so lucky to have a Pete Dye designed golf course open to the public. The course is incredible - every hole a different challenge - and may I add CLE Golf Properties has the layout in tournament condition. Best course open to the public by far in the state of Ohio
Pete Dye Hidden Gem!
Excellent public course manicured like a country club. This use to be TRW Corporation private course and is now a public course.
Great day at Fowler’s Mill
We had a beautiful day weather wise and two very nice father/son who joined us. A tough course because Pete Dye loves elevated greens. The layout was fair and course conditions were very good.
Tough course. If you’re looking for a nice clubhouse and things to be nice and tidy don’t come here. Luckily the course makes up for all the weeds and overgrown clubhouse. A lot of holes take the driver out of your hand. Overall good place.
What Happened to this Wonderful Course
This has (HAD) been the regular play course for years. It had a great layout with three "nines" for plenty of playing options. We had a standing Saturday morning tee time that was perfect.
The optimum word, though ... WAS!
Last year saw the beginning of what has now become the total abandonment of proper attention. This is a course with an asphalt "path" throughout the entire course. But, last year, this path showed unacceptable deterioration ... chuckholes everywhere, kidney damage just trying to stay on the path. They promised it would be fixed after the season, but that didn't happen.
Fast forward to 2020 and COVID-19. Nothing's been done. They haven't even pretended to care about the condition of the course. There seems to have been no off-season work on other areas: removal of dead and/or downed trees; attention to creekside embankments. Sand traps have NO sand in them - just mud.
The owners of this course decided a number of years ago that day-play, even from its most regular customers, wasn't as important as outings ... any day - including weekends, any time. The regular customers weren't as important as the sale of food and alcohol. But now -- NO OUTINGS. So, no money or interest in even pretending to do standard maintenance. A good business would realize that the regulars would be willing to given them a break and remain supportive. But these guys ... they just want the money and nothing else.
There are great golf courses in Northeast Ohio. The MetroParks know how to maintain their properties well. So, Fowler's owners and management - Bye Bye.
Still overgrown and overpriced
I expected more. The greens and fairways were good. But the rest of the beauty of the course has been lost to overgrown weeds. Can’t even see Pete Dye’s signature railroad ties on the 4th hole.
Great Pete Dye layout
In town for a few days and Fowler's is a must. Course is great and conditions were good. Greens were aerated, which i understand is a maintenance must, but I did play two days in a row.
Great Course not so great staff......
I have played here probably 4 or 5 times, I really like the layout of the course and the conditions are usually really good. I get that courses have to punch holes, I have been playing golf for 30 years.. What I don't get is why a course would charge $59 with aerated greens.
The starters at the course are probably some of the most unfriendly people I have ever encountered on a golf course. I am an old guy so I can say this but a bunch of grumpy old men who bark as a form of communication.
