Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Ohio
Let me start by saying it was a beautiful day for golf. They had just mowed the grass which made for great grass length and overall play. Biggest issue was with the clumps of grass left everywhere. In most places there was so much grass left laying after the cut, that even standing a foot away from my ball I could not find it until I was right on top of it. So I would personally recommend picking that grass up and the course would have been very nice
Given all the rain we’ve had, the course was barely playable. The rough was 4-6 inches in Some places. The balls plugged in the fairway or often were lost in the tall grass. There was standing water in many places and one would have to drop ina different spot in order to be able to even hit the ball. Carts were allowed to cross at 90°, and in some places, it was actually better to be in the fairway with the cart then in the rough which was wet muddy and generally a mess.
Hopefully when the weather cooperates, the course has not been destroyed with all the ruts.. It will take a lot of maintenance work to get it in good shape. In fact, they may have to bail hay if the grass gets much taller.
I do love the course. It is a challenge and has interesting holes, but it took 5 hrs given the current conditions.
CART PATH ONLY
It would have been nice to know if the course was "cart path only" before arriving.
Be prepared for a hard sell on a frequent player card...
Being able to play golf in Cleveland in December is a blessing to begin with. After snow, then rain, followed by a 60 degree day of course there were plenty of wet in a few spots. So I rated it a 3 in course conditions only because I lost a lot of balls...lol
But seriously, it was my first time playing and all the tee boxes were moved forward which is understandable. I really liked the course layout and look forward to playing it again during the summer to face it's TRUE challenge. I'm sure I will be rating the course a 5 star in course conditions by then...
Great course, but...
The guy who runs the desk is terse and not very friendly at all.
Poor all around
Greens were horrible. Staff sent a group of 8 out in front of us. Won’t play here again.
Course layout is great, greens not currently in great condition. Greens really slow
I booked a tee time for 6:55 AM as this is typically good pace and more serious golfers. Front nine pace was fine but when we made the turn they had put 3 foursomes out on the back nine. Had to wait every hole and eventually played thru 2 groups but pace was horrible. Never put groups out on the back nine in front of others especially on a weekend! Couldn't use one of the tee boxes on the back side because the sprinklers where still on the tee box. Green conditions where slow and very poor shape. I really like the course layout, too bad this was not a good experience and I will not be going back. lack of help in the pro shop was also a problem, couldn't even find anyone to comment about the situation because the only kid working was out chasing down a broken cart.
Worst golf experience ever
Ground crew very lacking on etiquette! Mowing on green as we are hitting on the green. Also as we are putting! Unbelievable! I had my grandson playing with me, trying to teach him proper etiquette. I proceed at the turn, into pro shop to let them know what happened. This guy was just as rude and inconsiderant as ground crew. I would never tell anyone to play here, nor will I ever go back! I've never experienced this type of behavior from course employees ever. Bright side was golfing with my grandson.
Years ago the course was a nice place to play. Not sure if it’s a new owner or management but the course has gone downhill. Won’t play here ever again and I had a “hot deal” on golf now!
Bill from Akron
Rain tree is a great track with generous fairways and receptive greens. It gets a lot of play so expect slow play. The staff is friendly and responsive to the clientele.
