Disappointed in fairway upkeep

We’ve golfed here many times and looked forward to a beautiful day! The course was green but the grass on the fairway itself was too long. It was almost like a rough so didn’t get much roll. Sand traps were also not groomed but that’s probably because it’s after Labor Day. We will be back though.

Dump - Stay Away!!

Wow - this place is a dump from start to finish...

Tee boxes - beat up

Bunkers - gravel pits

Fairways - just 1 level cut lower than rough not actually fairway grass

Rough - burnt out

Greens - diseased and dying - haven’t been mown and cuts haven’t changed in weeks

Play Elsewhere

I have played this course 100's of times over the last 20 years, was always a good experience. Have been playing many other area courses this year, so when I finally got around to Berkshire, what a disappointment. Absolutely the worst course conditions I've seen for a long long time, from anywhere. Several greens were diseased, most had not been cut or rolled in days, felt like putting on fringe, and putting through bare spots from disease was ridiculous. Many fairways weren't much better. Cart paths are in terrible shape, broken up and full of holes, better off riding in rough. This to me is clearly a sign that financially, this course isn't doing too well, wouldn't be surprised if they closed soon, it's pretty obvious they don't have the $ to keep up with the course maintenance. Will probably never go back. Save yourself the aggravation and play somewhere else, Too many better choices for your money than Berkshire. It's a shame

Nice track

Enjoyed each hole till we got to the green. Greens were patchy and bumpy and very slow. I’d guess the greens added 10 strokes minimum to my terrible score.

Brutal conditions for almost every green. Played 8/8/18 felt like putting on fringe, grass had to be at least 1/4 inch tall on some greens, #7 in particular was in terrible diseased condition. Some fairways were browned out and bare areas from fungus. I've played here 100's of time over the last 20 years, have never seen this course in such pitiful shape. probably never go back again, too many choices for better course conditions for my money.

Poor Condition/Way over priced!

Old gem of Chesterland, no where near being back. We played this course 2 yrs ago (2016) once it started coming back after the ownership changes. They stated it was in rough shape then & they we’re working on getting it back to the good old days. Zero improvement from two years ago. An outrage to charge ($45) for a course in such poor condition. Many greens missing grass, no sand in the bunkers and weeds on many tee boxes. For the conditions, this course should be $18 for 18 holes with a cart and lunch!! Sad

Potential

The backdrop of this course gives it the potential to be an absolutely gorgeous course but the course itself was in poor shape. Many of the greens was missing grass and the “nice” ones hadn’t beem cut nor rolled and were very bumpy and slow. Many of the fairways were in decent to good shape while some were in need of massive repair. To me, in this shape, this course was not worth $44. Fix the turf issues and I’d love to play this course again because it was beautiful otherwise.

Greens need much work! Staff very friendly

Greens were very slow and almost all had many brown spots all over. Pace of play was terrible. Had to jump around between front and back nine to get holes in. Some groups (3 or 4) would not let single play through.

Bad Pace of Play - And pairing singles

Typical golfnow tactic of pairing you with a twosome or 3 some. Crazy backed up at number 1 tee. Not sending off the back. Poor management of tee-times. Made for an awful slow round. Unable to play through foursomes behind foursome all very slow pace.

Course needs a greens keeper

Great layout but course has the worst greens in North East Ohio. Course is starting to become very run down.

Don't play even if it is free!

The course should not have been open. The greens had standing water in places and were super bumpy. The fairways will have ruts for weeks. Although I paid for 18 I, gave up after 9.
