Guy behind the counter.
The guy behind the counter was less than friendly. Told us it was 74 dollars. I said that it was 55 dollars. He asked me if I knew it was a holiday. I told him yes and that I booked it on golf now and then he asked for confirmation which I provided.
The starter had no tee sheet and told us to figure out with the other groups who was on the tee.
At the turn there was no food ready because the girl had not come in yet.
The worst place of play that I have ever seen
If you got 6 hrs to waste then play it. Why even have a ranger if he cant or wont or dont know how idk to tell groups to pick the place up. Comon it's a decent coarse and your pace of play sucks. Fire the ranger and get someone out there to move it along. The only free 9 hole coarse left in America buhl park with little kids even playing has a better pace of play then this coarse. Wow as slow as the pace of play is ot should only coat 25 bucks for 18 and a cart . Good luck everyone
Sounds like someone had a bad day and blames the course & employees for his 120 score. Have played Fowlers many times and it has never taken 6 hours.Take a lesson and learn how to spell !!!!
Great Course, Horrendous Pace
This course is one of the best in Cleveland, in terms of condition and layout. The pace of play, awful. The staff does nothing to help the pace! My most recent round took 5.5 hours with a 9:30 tee time. If you have all the time in the world, good course to play. Otherwise, the frustration of a slow pace will make this a miserable round for golfers of any skill.
Immaculate Course, but...
I give a 5 star rating solely because the course itself is awesome and a must play and the golf course deserves that recognition. If you're all about the golf and have unlimited time with no regard for pace of play, Lake/River is one of the best public courses I've been on anywhere. Range balls were included in the price. Greens and fairways were perfect. Bunkers were well-groomed. Rough was evenly mowed and playable, but not easy. The course layout is fair, challenging, and interesting. That's why the golf course gets five stars. However, the pace of play was unacceptable. The course was cart path only and tee times were staggered only 8 minutes apart (needs to be spread out at least 12 minutes if cart path only). My tee time was 8:22am, and by that time in the morning, groups were already behind at least 10 minutes. I think we actually teed off around 8:35am. It was 8:55 when we finished the first hole. The only moisture on the course was the typical morning moisture. By around 11:05am when we were making the turn (yes you read that right), the course was completely dry. Our weather was 78 degrees, sunny, with a steady breeze. Absolutely no need for cart path only at that point. Nevertheless, the pro shop didn't send out a message to the rangers or anyone allowing us to go off the cart path. It took over five hours to finish the round (we finished around 1:35pm). In all that time, there was also no beverage cart or water coolers around the course. Not fun playing over five hours in the heat when your only chance to quench your thirst is at the turn. If you're coming from Cleveland, it will probably take you at least 40 minutes round trip to get to the course. Leaving yourself time to hit some range balls, this turns into a 6-7 hour golf day (I left my place at 7:05am, got home at 2:15pm).
Management needs to do better to pair the overall experience with the quality of the golf course.
Fowler's Mill G.C. is truly a must play course if you have not experienced this gem in Chesterland! Personally what I want when I play is a challenging but fair course, excellent course conditions, and a fair price. Fowler's checks all the boxes. Best greens and fairways I have played this year. Pace of play was average for a busy Saturday morning(4.5hrs.)Friendly staff adds to the experience!! Fowler's Mill is definitely a top 5 public facility.
This is one of the best courses in Ohio. Hands down. A Pete Dye masterpiece.
Great course good value
Pete Dye designed course. Probably a top 5 public course in NE Ohio. I highly recommend you play it some time.
Fowlers Mills golf course is one of the top courses in the area. The course layout is great and the greens were fantastic. The overall conditions were exceptional!
Great track, but it can have pace of play issues if at all busy and they upped their prices for this season. You could find weekday 18hole rates last season for like $35.
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.
Course was in good condition. Greens were true. plays long for ladies.
Very challenging course. When I go to chesterland each year I always play this course. Enjoyed it alot.
Great layout. Course was very wet due to rain the day before but the greens were fast and true.
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!
