Excellent course

One of the true hidden gems in Northeast Ohio. Rolling hills, fast greens and well manicured fairways. The rough is not too bad, but the greens are on the small side and difficult to hold unless you can really spin the ball.

Nice time

First time for partner. Hilly course, well maintained. Some grass cuttings residue on greens otherwise well maintained. Tee boxes good. Fairways good. All in all well maintained and good upkeep.

Extremely Underrated

The layout here has potential to be one of the best in the area, as it has enough variation, the greens are smooth but difficult as they roll off all sides, and the fairways are mostly perfect. Conditions have definitely improved during the last few year.s. My only suggestion is that number 1 used to be number 10 when it was private, and is a pretty difficult start on that hole followed by the long par 3, whereas the current number 10 is straight and number 11 is a short par 3. I'd flip them back, get customers scorecards starting well, and save some abuse on the current front 9 so tee boxes can recover. Besides that, the employees are all nice and really are about the customer, fitting everyone in seamlessly even when busy, accommodating different skill levels, and making decisions to keep all players happy.

Poor service

Just had the guy behind the counter tell my friend and I that it was too late to tee off. It was 6:33 pm. The cut-off was 6:30. We were told that there was an outing in the morning and they had to have the carts in"early" to have time to get them ready for the next day. There was a foursome preparing to hit their second shots on number 1, and no golfers on holes 10-14. He would not let a twosome out in a single cart on the back nine, (scratch and ten handicap), evidently, thinking that we wouldn't beat the foursome. FYI - I belong to Medina CC and we then drove there and played nine- teeing off at 7:05 pm. I can't believe that business is so good that the owner of Rawiga would not want another $36 in his pocket!

Sadly Slipping away

Once beautiful course that is slowly fading away. Chewed up tee boxes devoid of grass, weeds in bunkers, browned out fairways. Poor overall condition, very disappointing . Greens were decent in all fairness. Usually play here 4-5 times a year as I travel around NE Ohio and kind of sad to say that today was probably my last. Good bye Rawiga...

It’s sad. Last week my friend and I endured a three hour 20 minute front nine. Tonight, we were denied playing at 6:33 pm. The cutoff was 6:30. The back nine had the first four holes open, the front nine had a foursome on #1 fairway. Somehow, the guy behind the counter didn’t seem to understand that we would play faster than the foursome on the front. That’s it for me. I was a member there for 15 years when it was private and love the course, however, it’s not worth the hassles. By the way, we drove to my club, Medina CC, and teed off at 7:05 pm. We finished well before dark! You’d think Rawiga would have wanted our $36.

Good layout, stressed from summer heat & lack of rain

Former member when it was a private club. Played earlier this season and everything was great. Returned for a second round this year., and it was not a good experience. Unlike the first visit, tee times and groups were not being monitored. Had a 6-some tee off during my tee time. Contacted the golf shop by phone and informed the nice lady whom answered, about the situation. I said, “I would like the situation addressed or I will come in immediately for a refund.” The person who came out very promptly was the owner. He was very rude to our group after talking to the 6-some. Very plainly verbalized and felt we were threatening “his employee” with the request.

The 6-some did split into a 4-some and 2-some for the remainder of the front 9. The pace of play was pretty good, about 2 hrs. on a Saturday late morning. Unfortunately at the turn they merged again and finished out as a 6-some. Fortunately, at that point our 3-some just did not care and made the best of a beautiful day in Northeast Ohio.

Sadly I and others I know will never return. I wish the best to the owner and staff.

Tight fairways and tough greens

Fairways on many holes were pretty tight. Rough was dry and hard, so ball rolls a ton. Greens were in good shape, but very firm. Tough to adjust to crowned/elevated greens where you end up penalized for a decent shot. Tee boxes were very beat up, especially the pars 3's. Last played a few years ago. Too long ago to recall details of holes where local knowledge would be beneficial.

Rawiga

Really nice greens. Black tee boxes were just bad. Tough to have even footing dried and had weeds and divots. But fairways rough fringe and greens were perfect. Bunkers were well taken care of:

If you are a slightly better player you are going to love this course. Enough challenge to make it interesting but not too difficult. Greens in fantastic shape, Overall the course is in very good condition.

Worth the drive from the CLE

From the crowned greens to the very friendly staff, Rawiga has always been a very solid test of golf and an enjoyable atmosphere within the confines of farms and rural life in Seville! Love the speed slots on 9 and 18! Along with the downhill par 3 #15...
