Pete Dye masterpiece is right
The lakes/river 18 was awesome. Absolutely amazing layout in NEO! I would play the maple 9 before as a great warm out 9. I’ll be back to enjoy this beauty!
Pete Dye Classic
Lucky to live only an hour away from Fowler’s Mill Golf Course. Just like to say that we are so lucky to have a Pete Dye designed golf course open to the public. The course is incredible - every hole a different challenge - and may I add CLE Golf Properties has the layout in tournament condition. Best course open to the public by far in the state of Ohio
Pete Dye Hidden Gem!
Excellent public course manicured like a country club. This use to be TRW Corporation private course and is now a public course.
Great day at Fowler’s Mill
We had a beautiful day weather wise and two very nice father/son who joined us. A tough course because Pete Dye loves elevated greens. The layout was fair and course conditions were very good.
Tough course. If you’re looking for a nice clubhouse and things to be nice and tidy don’t come here. Luckily the course makes up for all the weeds and overgrown clubhouse. A lot of holes take the driver out of your hand. Overall good place.
What Happened to this Wonderful Course
This has (HAD) been the regular play course for years. It had a great layout with three "nines" for plenty of playing options. We had a standing Saturday morning tee time that was perfect.
The optimum word, though ... WAS!
Last year saw the beginning of what has now become the total abandonment of proper attention. This is a course with an asphalt "path" throughout the entire course. But, last year, this path showed unacceptable deterioration ... chuckholes everywhere, kidney damage just trying to stay on the path. They promised it would be fixed after the season, but that didn't happen.
Fast forward to 2020 and COVID-19. Nothing's been done. They haven't even pretended to care about the condition of the course. There seems to have been no off-season work on other areas: removal of dead and/or downed trees; attention to creekside embankments. Sand traps have NO sand in them - just mud.
The owners of this course decided a number of years ago that day-play, even from its most regular customers, wasn't as important as outings ... any day - including weekends, any time. The regular customers weren't as important as the sale of food and alcohol. But now -- NO OUTINGS. So, no money or interest in even pretending to do standard maintenance. A good business would realize that the regulars would be willing to given them a break and remain supportive. But these guys ... they just want the money and nothing else.
There are great golf courses in Northeast Ohio. The MetroParks know how to maintain their properties well. So, Fowler's owners and management - Bye Bye.
Still overgrown and overpriced
I expected more. The greens and fairways were good. But the rest of the beauty of the course has been lost to overgrown weeds. Can’t even see Pete Dye’s signature railroad ties on the 4th hole.
Great Pete Dye layout
In town for a few days and Fowler's is a must. Course is great and conditions were good. Greens were aerated, which i understand is a maintenance must, but I did play two days in a row.
Great Course not so great staff......
I have played here probably 4 or 5 times, I really like the layout of the course and the conditions are usually really good. I get that courses have to punch holes, I have been playing golf for 30 years.. What I don't get is why a course would charge $59 with aerated greens.
The starters at the course are probably some of the most unfriendly people I have ever encountered on a golf course. I am an old guy so I can say this but a bunch of grumpy old men who bark as a form of communication.
Great course with some really cool holes
I absolutely loved everything about this course. We played 18 holes in less than four hours on a Friday afternoon. Then went back for 36 more the following day. Started the weekend by playing Little Mountain Friday morning. Then went to Fowler's Friday afternoon and Saturday. Finished the weekend at Boulder Creek. Fowler's Mill ranked right up there with the other two. There are just some really neat holes with a lot of options. The greens were a little tough to putt on due to recent aeration...but that's expected this time of year. We will definitely be back!
The course is challenging and generally well maintained, although it can get really soggy. However, the management/staff is just terrible. The shop guys are unfriendly, the starter is disorganized, there’s no drink cart, there are no water jugs on the course, and there’s no ranger to keep things moving.
Guy behind the counter.
The guy behind the counter was less than friendly. Told us it was 74 dollars. I said that it was 55 dollars. He asked me if I knew it was a holiday. I told him yes and that I booked it on golf now and then he asked for confirmation which I provided.
The starter had no tee sheet and told us to figure out with the other groups who was on the tee.
At the turn there was no food ready because the girl had not come in yet.
The worst place of play that I have ever seen
If you got 6 hrs to waste then play it. Why even have a ranger if he cant or wont or dont know how idk to tell groups to pick the place up. Comon it's a decent coarse and your pace of play sucks. Fire the ranger and get someone out there to move it along. The only free 9 hole coarse left in America buhl park with little kids even playing has a better pace of play then this coarse. Wow as slow as the pace of play is ot should only coat 25 bucks for 18 and a cart . Good luck everyone
Sounds like someone had a bad day and blames the course & employees for his 120 score. Have played Fowlers many times and it has never taken 6 hours.Take a lesson and learn how to spell !!!!
