Great course!

The course is amazing! The only reason I withheld giving it 5 stars was the fact that the greens had just been aerated. I wish I would have known this before. We also had to play lake/maple because river was closed for aerating.

Pete Dye challenging course

This a course with some really memorable holes. You will find one of the best par 4's in the area (hole 4) along with a number of fun and challenging holes throughout. Not a bunch of bells and whistles to the place, but you get a real flavor of strategic golf.

Nice course. Layout and hole design is tough but fair. Played green tees-my handicap is 13 and this was all I wanted. Course was wet from rain day before, so no roll. Greens not fast. Usual public course conditions with slot of divots, improperly or non fixed ball marks which takes away the golf experience

Awesome Course. Challenging, But Fair

This was my first time playing this course, and I must say that is was worth the drive and money.

Course is not overly difficult, if you know where to put the ball off the tee, which is hard when if you are playing the course for the first time. The tee shots, and a lot of the iron shots, require good positioning.

Fairways were in great shape. Greens were in great shape as well. Lots of breaks, depending on pin positions. When I played, they put the pins in some pretty tricky spots.

Overall, I was glad that I spent the time and money to golf here. I would be happy to go back!

Great day

This is fun, challenging course to play. Be aware, the fairways are somewhat narrow and, of course, the devious Pete Dye greens but this course is everything it was advertised to be. It is the real deal.

One of the best in Greater Cleveland

Must play if you haven’t, must play again if you have. Once you pull into the parking lot you know you’re in for something special. Great layout, always in good shape. Better hit it in the fairway otherwise you’re not scoring here. Greens are sizable and fair. Not too fast but not slow. #4 on the “lake” 9 is the signatures hole with a big lake on the right side. 9, and 9 have a split fairway bisected by the chagrin river. Overall it’s a must play if you’ve yet to venture to Fowler’s.

The course was in great shape especially for the start of the season. Greens were not rolled but they were still playing nice. Pace of play was fantastic because it was pretty much wide open. Everybody was really nice. It's a great course to play we will definitely be back.

Best Course in NE ohio

Fowler's Lake/ River is a true Gem. Great layout, well maintained and a pleasure to play. Please cut the high growth between 2 & 8 , like they used to do years ago. It speeds up play! If I had to play one course every day it would be this course!

Maple at Fowlers

The course and greens were in great shape. Greens ran very true. The layout of the Maple course is wide open but the rough is very deep. You stay in the fairways and you can score well, but if you get into the rough, you will have a tough day. Little overpriced at over $20 for 9 holes senior walking.
