A good dose of nature

Good course. Great walk in nature. Saw eagles and falcons. Good for beginners. Forgiving fairways, good greens.

Worst Course in Cleveland

I know what you’re thinking - I have an axe to grind. Well I do not. Simply the worst golf course I have ever played. Course conditions were a complete joke. It was like playing in your back yard if you had not mowed it in a week. And its $38 for 18. Its criminal. They should shut this place down.

Somebody is using a farm for a golf course

The fairway had grass piles everywhere. It looked like they used a brush hog to mow. The edge of the greens had grass clippings around them. It was like putting on shag carpet. Paid for 18 and left after 9 Hope the use the extra money to hire some help
Stay away

Nicely laid out course.

This course is in cow pasture condition in every respect. It is a very depressing place to play golf and shows great disrespect for the game and the industry.

Very Bad Conditions

The course looks like they are preparing to shut down as there are many areas that are not cut and the greens are all infested. We should of known when we pulled up and there were only 3 cars in the lot at 10AM on a perfect day. I would avoid this course at all costs as it is not maintained.

Pack lots of balls

The rough was 3 feet tall. Unless you hit the ball straight up the fairway you will not find the ball. This results in slow play and a lot of ball searching. The greens were insect infested with dirt spots all over them. Putting is worse than an ariated green. Bunkers are grass instead of sand. We played 5 holes and left and complained

Should not be open this late in the season

Fairway grass and tees not cut, sprinklers running on some of the greens, greens were diseased and/or covered with sand. Scheduled to play 18 but couldn't take anymore and only played 9. It appeared they were done for the season as far as upkeep and should not be charging for rounds under those conditions or it could be that this is the last year the course will be open.

Course was not in great condition

The course was not in all that great of condition. Greens were very bad. Overall, it was not bad for the money. I did not pay much for it so I did not mind.

Greens were like shagg carpet

The course was overgrown and looked like it hadn't been mowed in a week. I played on a Saturday, how do you not have the course ready to go for the weekend, your busiest time of the week? Oh well. I'll never go back

Terrible experience

The layout is nice and open, and the course is in a beautiful location, but that is about it when it comes to positives. There is no clear distinction between fairway and intermediate rough. The "fairways" had many dead spots. The greens weren't in the greatest shape. There had been a scramble in the morning, and the groups were taking longer to come in, and we were forced to start on the back 9. The lady that helped when we arrived was very nice and courteous, but the employees in the afternoon acted like they couldn't get us off their course soon enough. I played here because I got a good hot deal on Golf Now, but even that won't bring me back here again.

This course needs a good course manager

Tees were in bad need of mowing. Ball teed up was barely above the grass length. Played on a weekday at noon and not one worker was on the course cutting grass. I am a senior and the main reason I play here is because of the great "golf now" rates. The owner needs to hire someone with good course management. It's a shame because this could be a very nice course.

Not Good

This is by far the worse course conditions I have ever seen. There was grass clipping everywhere, including the fairways. The grass on the tee boxes was longer than some of the roughs I've seen on other courses this year. It really isn't worth playing, even for the cheap cost of the round. I have written many reviews on other courses I have played, and never given a rating this bad. Its too bad too, with the proper upkeep, it could be a fun place to play.

Needs improvement, in clubhouse and on the course.

Played as a 4 some, myself and my son arrived 5 minutes before are scheduled tee time, mostly my fault had some minor problems before I left,which is very unusual for us, we are usually 30-40 minutes early every time we play together. When we arrived to join the other two in our group, we were meet by the person from inside the clubhouse outside by the golf carts, with a very unpleasant "do you know when your scheduled tee time is. The other groups after you will now be late also." We proceeded to get into our cart and drive to the 1st tee, where the 2some if front of us was waiting to tee off because the group in front of them had not hit their 2nd shots yet. I proceeded to go back to the clubhouse to explain why we were not able to tee off on time, and was greeted with "next time show up when you are supposed to."
Beside the not so good start to the round, the fairways were not in good condition, hard to tell the difference between the rough and the fairways. The fairways were covered in clover and weeds. The greens were in ok shape. Will probably not return do to the very unfriendly staff working here.
