Hardly Any Water!

We played after a rain storm, so the course was wet and we walked a lot because of cart path only restrictions. Quite a bit of mud. Once you got on the greens it was aerated, so there were holes and sand on the green. Course had hills, elevated greens, some water, dogleg, bunkers in play, etc. I will go back and play when it is dry. I liked the course .it was 62 degrees. Here is a pic of 18th hole.

WET WET WET

It rained at 4am and they should have closed the course. They didnt tell you that until you pay. It poured the day before but plenty of time to drain but not 4am. I paid 36.00 for the course and should have been charged half of that for those conditions

Accessible classic course

If you are looking to play a classic designed Donald Ross course, this is one of the best in the area. It is owned by the Metroparks, and they do the best they can to maintain it on a budget. You will still see a lot of the old architecture and greens. The trees, fairways, and bunker have all crept in over time. A good masterplan would be good for the long term, but you still can see the great bones of the place. Enjoy playing it and have a fun time on a fun course.

Love Manakiki --once-a-year

First, I love Manakiki, had an ACE #5 a few years ago, but now lucky to have GiR. The greens & some fairways had just been aerated/punched, and most greens were heavily sanded. We putted, but didn't care because it was such a beautiful afternoon on this Donald Ross gem. We got a great price of GN Hot Deals, so no complaints about the sanded greens; it just means they will awesome in another couple of weeks & again next year. Very pleasant staff, and pace-of-play was no more than 3hrs (hardly anyone on back9). I try to play Manakiki once a year, so I will be back next year.

overprice outing

Had 44 golfers for a late Sat. morning outing. Staff charged us full weekend price. We have been here in previous years and got a small group discount- nothing this time! It's not like we were taking away premium tee times; nobody teed off within a half hour before. At $56 per golfer plus what we spend on food and beer the management wasn't very cooperative. Will be looking to spend our $2200 somewhere else next year!

A Donald Ross gem............

This is a really fun and enjoyable course to play. We come to Cleveland a couple of times per year to play golf and we always play Manakiki. Greens were in excellent condition and the course was in good shape. Challenging layout but what else would you expect from a Ross course? Another real positive is they have hardly changed a thing since Ross's original design. Tough but fair and always enjoyable to play!!

Memorable Layout

Manakiki is scenic and challenging with lots of hills and sloped fairways. The greens and bunkers were in excellent condition. The course has several holes that I will daydream about long after the golf season ends.

Bad Pace of Play / Pairing

Typical golfnow tactic by starter to pair a single with someone or 203 some. Don't like to let people go off the back 9. Pace was slow. Seems like back 9 was over booked, ran into absolute wait on foursome playing slow, not letting a single play through. Too bad because I like this course. Can't seem to find courses in Cle that are managing pace of play properly!

Recommendation

First time I've played this course. Great course and the pace was very good for the best day in Cleveland this summer. The greens were firm but could stop a ball with some spin. Loved the course.

Bang for the buck

Manakiki is one of the nicest public courses in Ohio. For what you pay it's an absolute bargain. The staff is very friendly. You won't find a prettier back nine anywhere.

Great course - placement is key

This course has about 5 different levels of cut on it. The rough will punish you. Tee shots stress ball placement. You can't just grip it and rip it, you will pay dearly. The greens are some of the best I've seen in the area.

Not what she used to be..

Many years ago Manakiki was one of the premier course’s in the Cleveland area. That is not the case anymore, pace of play is snail like the rough is, well rough. The course is poorly groomed.. I will not play there again.
