Had a good round. Not crowded even though it was cold. Only recommendation is to update course layout with Harmon gps as I could not follow distances or keep score.

Course struggles to be in quality shape. Patches of dead grass in the greens. Doesnt appear much watering occurs. Cheap rates from golf now so for a hack i play it once in a while. Never have any hot food available

Great Layout and Potential

This course needs weed killer application, fertilizer for fairways and greens.

With some TLC and chemistry this course has a lot of potential.

The layout is short but it has some challenging holes. Conditions were poor at best compared to other courses I have played in a 50 radius.

Flat Course That Can Be Very Wet Early in Year

Course is on a very flat site. Character is provided by the modern greens that are framed by moderate mounding and they have some movement. Character and difficulty are also provided by use of water and some tighter fairways constrained by woods.

Unfortunately, this course has recently closed.

Course needs some work

I would only recommend this course if you prefer to get some feedback compared to just hitting a bucket of balls on the range.

Seen this course had some bad reviews, but gave it a try for $10 w/cart...cheaper than a large bucket of range balls...

Course just needs some love, like cutting the grass so that you can tell where the fairway starts and ends...roll the greens so they arent like putting in the fairway...and sand traps were just filled with too much sand without any depth (forgot to dig the hole first).....people say it used to be really nice and well maintained....was my first time playing so it still needs some major attention...

If your just getting out for a practice round to work on a few things, or a beginner...this is the course for you...but for the serious golfer, stay away until they have time to work on the course...all the rainy weather could have something to do with it...but then again, all the other courses in Ohio are in way better shape after the same rain...

Run down course

The course is simply run down and has not been able to run down to its formal glory. This course is always on golf now which is the only reason I return. I just hope one day the course is able to make the appropriate renovations to bring the course back to is formal glory.

Sad sad sad

This place used to be such a great course. It was in very good condition and very well taken care of. In just a few years, it has become an unplayable course in terrible condition. It’s not even worth $10 for 18.

Avoid

While I understand that it has been wet, there is no evidence of any upkeep on course. Obviously roughs were not mowed, but fairways weren't cut, sand traps were essentially dirt, greens had great amount of dirt patches, tee boxes were not maintained and then if that wasn't bad enough, there was a fivesome ahead of us that wouldn't let people pass.

Can't recall ever playing a worse course.

God awful

I've played this course my whole life. It was beautiful when it was deer track. I thought with no ownership it would be nice. Paid for 18 and the course was so bad I lost fairway shots. Granted it has been rainy and cutting the grass is hard, but they said they have not cut in 2 weeks.... I live right down the street and can find a day to cut the grass... dandelions everywhere, too. I think this was my last straw with this course. It has gone so far downhill. The girl in the club house was very nice. When we asked the guy for a refund after we only truly played 3 holes; he asked, "what's the problem". I could not believe it, and we only got a rain check for 9 holes.... take your money elsewhere and dont waste your time and balls like I did.

What happened?

Played this course throughout high school, I don’t expect much from it, it’s got a decent layout and has usually been in decent shape. The greens are like putting on a wet mattress with burn holes in it. I don’t know if they cut the grass yet this year, dandelions everywhere including the tee box. Since it’s long it doesn’t dry out and has sitting water everywhere lost about 4 balls plugged in fairway or near green. Use to be a solid track for the money, now it’s not even worth your time

Rough Course

Stopped here to play a quick 9, please don’t do as we did. I played here a few years ago and swore I’d never come back, but after seeing some recent reviews I figured I’d give it another shot since it has new ownership.
First off they don’t treat the grass with anything! There were dandelions and other weeds everywhere, even on the tee boxes. Geese geese and more geese, with geese comes goose poop. The greens were in terrible shape, deep divots and burned out conditions. Some of the greens looked more like bunkers. The fairways were probably at least 3 inches high, you could easily lose a ball in the fairway between tall grass and dandelions. Spend an extra $5 and go elsewhere. Pace of play was our own pace, as we had no one else on the course with us.
The course was extremely wet, but with the weather we’ve had I’d expect nothing less. A dry course wouldn’t have changed my rating.

Don’t do it

Greens were bad, fairways looked like ruffs, ruffs looked like a wheat field, took forever to find your ball everywhere!!! 2 guys and it took us 6 hours to play 18 with nobody in front of us, had a guy cutting flat greens but not the grass. Smh, I know we had a lot of rain but there is no grass cut anywhere

Worst golf course I've ever played in my entire life

This used to be one of the top 100 nicest golf courses in the United States now it is probably the worst golf course in the entire world I don't know if most people remember the old Emerald Valley in Lorain which was nicknamed dirt Valley because it was so dry by Dusty and dirt everywhere disc golf course should be called soggy bottoms because it is the wettest highest grass swamp that you're playing in that you could ever play in I would almost imagine this course should be in the Everglades instead of in Elyria Ohio it is terrible the greens were eating up it was like putting on carpet that was glued down on a floor and removed and you are putting across the glued down flooring material it was terrible eaten up by disease nothing being done on a course this company has had this course for 3 years now has not made any improvements on it it keeps going downhill the only thing I can guess is that they're running the market value of this course downhill so they can purchase it which makes it an incredible waste of your time money and effort to play in a golf course where the fairways are worse than a rough and the roughs were the same as hitting out of a corn field or a wheat field because the grass was over a foot high you couldn't hit a ball out of the Fairway if you try to just totally the worst I've ever seen the greens were ridiculous how bad they were I don't think they had one green on there that was even should be playable course should be shut down close down and re-fixed for an entire year used to love going to this course won't go to this course again until it's bought by somebody else or managed by somebody that actually knows what they're doing

Work in progress

While it’s no secret this course has seen better days, it does appear to be on its way up. The overall design has some great holes. The greens were ok, but admittedly the staff said they are a work in progress. While not perfect it is a fun track and trending in the right direction.
