Awesome small greens

Overall, the course was in very poor shape. The greens were among the best I've played, but the tees were pretty much dirt, the fairways and roughs weren't much better. Riding in the cart reminded me of watching dirt bikes going over moguls.

Skip this course

The course is not worth the money to play. Overall in terrible shape. Tees have tons of divots, even par 4s and 5s, there’s no difference from fairway to rough, There giant ruts across holes where the ground has settled due to drain tiles, and the course is flooded with high school teams. I usually don’t have an issue with high schools, however, a boys golf team was there for practice, two schools were there for a girls meet, and another two different schools were there for their boys meet. Because of these meets and practice, I had to go off the back nine which had a terrible confusing layout. You can clearly tell that the back nine was an after thought and they forced it in around the front nine. So again, skip this course if you can.

Not as bad as some folks say

I played yesterday morning about 9am. I was expecting a fairly slow round since there were a lot of folks there already - and that was kind of the case. Took me about 4 1/2 hours to play (was paired up with a threesome), but that wasn't too bad.
As for the course, itself: well, it was in "ok" shape. The fairways do have some dry spots and the tee boxes on several holes are pretty much dirt. But it wasn't anything that was too much of an annoyance. For the golfer who is out there just trying to break 90, this is a good course. If you're a single digit handicapper - probably not for you.
Now, with that said, the things I do like about the course are 1: layout. 2: accessible greens. 3. occasional challenging approach shot.
This course works well for me because you CAN miss a fairway and not be in "jail" or lose your ball. You can certainly lose balls here if you tend to hook or slice really bad. But if you miss a fairway by 2-3 yards, you'll usually be ok here. I like that.
The greens are probably C+. They roll pretty well. A couple of surprising breaks. They did firm up a bit in the afternoon. And they're mostly in good condition.
Overall, this course is probably a little nicer than something like Sweetbriar or Raccoon Hill, but not as nice as a course like Shawnee or Big Met.
For $41 on a saturday with a cart, seems like a pretty nice place to play. And if you're just trying to break 100 - this is definitely friendlier than any of the metroparks courses.

Wrath of God

Went to this golf course early morning, looked beautiful, staff was very friendly but unfortunately a massive storm/down pour made it unplayable that day. I will definitely return to play another time though.

Wish they had distance markers and stoped wasting some nice greens

This place could be really nice with very minimal effort. The greens are really nice. They are too flat too easy however but clearly the gem of this place is the greens. Most tee boxes destroyed I hit a few tee shots from outside off box in the ruff just to have grass. Just play the blues as it looks like noone does and you will have grass. The fairways or lack there of. You have to hunt for a shred of grass to put your ball on just hitting center cut. The fairways have dead turf from drowning when wet and no watering when dry. You have a water source on site buy a water truck and water your fairways when dry. If you had turf on your fairways this place would be great.

Less than impressed

First time playing this course as it was recommended to me by a friend, but my friend must not like me because this course was a big time let down.

The tee boxes and fairways are in horrible shape. The saving grace for my round was the greens.... they were fantastic!

Unless they figure out how to maintain the rest of the course like they do the greens, I’m sad to say this course will be a one and done for me.

Ohio COVID-19 regulations

Course was as usual average or slightly below due to a lack of rain.
The biggest disappointment was that all employees are required to wear facial covering especially indoors and none of the employees in the clubhouse were following this recent executive order by Govenor DeWine
In addition the cart I used and several afterwards were never sanitized.
Very disappointed!
