Don’t go to this course

They are doing nothing to maintain the course because they are closing soon.

Dry weather

I have always enjoyed Playing this course, and am sad it will be closing. This recent dry spell is taking its toll on the greens. Bare spots, cracked surfaces are showing on a number of greens, which were slower than usual. But overall still one of my favorite courses!

Don’t Go!

Not worth the $49 to play. Terrible condition, greens are awful, fairways are dog crap. Honestly it would be in better shape if they let goats run around and eat all the grass.

If you were to make a golf course in your back yard, it would be better than this. Plus you wouldn’t have to waste 4 hours of your life to just laugh every time you get up to a shot.

I can see myself building a house there one day.

Fairways are in bad shape...

Whether it was the 2-week drought, too much watering at the wrong time or some kind of disease, the fairways are bad.

Hidden Gem...

My friend and I, had looked for a new place to play. We found this course near by to Stark county. The course is very well kept and greens were nice. One lack were signs for next holes without using the scorecard map. Only little knock, but other than that, friendly staff to strangers and good value for the money.

It's OK

The course itself is kept in decent shape. However, the cart paths, tee boxes and traps are unattended to. The traps were small bonds with no sand at all. There are no yardage markers or even tee box markers. With a little love, this could be a nice course again.

Hit it right down the fairway or it's gone. Not what it was and not worth the money

Extremely disappointed. I used to golf this course quite frequently 5-10 years ago. I heard that since it changed owners, it went down hill but when paying $50 for a round, I didn't expect the wheels to have fallen off like that. The fairway is like the first cut on most courses (which I don't mind). Then you're immediately in 4-5 inches of rough. I lost 8+ balls on tee shots that were just to the left or right of the fairway. The grass was SOO long, it was awful. I had an early Sunday morning tee time, and oddly I only saw 2 other groups on the course. I also did not see anybody mowing like you'd normally see before 8 AM, but you could tell they don't do that. I wouldn't even pay $10 for this course. I legitimately thought they owed me a refund for how big of a ripoff $50 was. Play any other course but this one. I will never be back.

Back from the brink

A great course that was destined to close, now will stay open a little longer due to the effects of Covid on the local economy. In spite of some adversity, the greens and fairways are excellent. The rough is too long, and balls are difficult to find, but the course is fun to play.
Enjoy this course while it stays open a little while longer
