It’s a joke

Horrible experience. Sprinklers were coming on in the fairways and around the greens at 11 am on a Friday. Then, they put 2 foursomes of women off in front of us as we were making the turn on the back. Had to wait 10 minutes in between shots. We finally walked off the course after hole no. 12. Went into the club house to ask why they would send groups off in front of us on the back 9. We were told to just go get in line! Will never go back!

Pace is pretty slow, could use a little discipline (marshal) on the course.

Why did I play this course

They were mowing the greens while we were trying to play. This caused a huge backup with 3 to 4 groups waiting on the tees. They were also blowing the grass off the fairways during play. Very difficult to hit a ball with a tractor in the fairways going back and forth. The greens were bad where people didn’t fix their divots. The course’s dress code wasn’t being enforced.

Decent course

Nice course to play. Got it on groupgolfer deal. I think only one spot on the course was a little wet. Some other spots need to have dirt filled in to level it out though. I would play this course again.

S-L-O-W!

This was the first 5 hour round I have played in a long time. There were several 5-somes out on the course today. Very slow day.

Above average course

I play here often, so I know the times to avoid for slow play. Tee time 124, a twosome was told to tee off at 134 because they had no tee time. I get off the range and see they are two holes ahead and a hole behind already. Resulted in a slower day because it held up a few groups but finished in 4.5 hours. Layout is great, opportunity for scoring. Conditions were decent considering the rain recently in NE Ohio. Be advised many places on this course do not drain well, I do see some drain work being done on a few holes. Price for my dad and I walking and small bucket is really unbeatable comparable to other courses in the Akron area. Not the best but normally a reliable place to play.

5-HOUR ROUND!

Raintree sells a tee-time that is only 8 minutes after a golf outing's (scramble) last tee time. So, we waited on the first tee and waited on every shot for 5 hours. I complained at the turn twice then turned in my frequent player card. There was no ranger and even after registering the complaints nothing was done to move the outing along.

It was nice to make the turn and then watch 7 members of the golf outing stuff their faces with food instead of moving their outing along. When the outing's last 3-some finally teed off on #10 there were 3 groups waiting to tee off.

Somebody at that course should lose their job.

Poor Conditions

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

If you catch a deal

We played prior to alot of the heavy rain we saw in the late spring/early summer and the grass in many areas was HIGH! Some areas I’m talking, miss the fairway and end up in 4-15” of grass. They were trying to get ahold of it but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
It’s a $40 course MAX but I would keep looking at other surroundings courses if you can find a deal here. Another 15minutes south is 10x a course for the same, sometimes even cheaper rates

Wet Spring

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...

Where’s the Ranger ??????

Tee time was at 12:20 and just walked off the course at 5:40. Unacceptable for a Friday. No ranger to be found. A 5 some 2 groups ahead of us was the culprit. This used to be my favorite course but the drainage and pace of play will drive me to another course
