Overall Good Value for the Money

I was told by the starter today that the Willowick GC is under new management, by the Billy Casper Group. It's not being shut down as previously rumored. This course has great potential, hope to see significant improvements in the near future.

A little rough in places, but a good value.

I’m very pleased with the course, it had a few rough spots. Well worth the price

Horrible

I have played at both great and not so great courses. This experience was horrible. No Marshall to keep pace. There were random people driving around on golf carts not doing anything but making noise. Greens were patchy, uneven, and not one person repaired their divots. tee boxes and greens are literally right next to each other. Sand boxes we hard as a rock. Oh yeah... there was literally a homeless person living right off of one of the fairways. Tent set up and everything. Trash everywhere. The rough had long weeds and super tall grass, that's if it was even green. And there was cotton spread out so you couldn't even find you ball. Never again. Don't waste your time or money.

Good value

Course was in good condition and good value for the money. For some reason it was not crowded at all and I was able to play alone at 8:00 am. Finished round in under 3 hours.

Not bad

This course gets a bad rap. Location isn't great; a lot of the holes aren't memorable; what's with the huge bunkers; no rakes in the bunkers; etc. But overall, it isn't as bad as described. The greens aren't horrible. Maybe a little bumpy at times, but they aren't slow. I hate slow greens. The fairways had so-so coverage. I don't care about no grass in the rough as long as there is grass in the fairway. So it's a muni with graffiti on some walls and lots of bunkers are missing rakes, but the greens are okay (despite the multiple colors) and there was enough grass on the fairways.

Construction hat needed

The course felt like an abandon construction site. A lot of fairways areas were just dirt patches that needed grass and care. Pace of play was fair. Greens fair. My worry was not to damage any of my clubs from hitting off the hard surfaces. I won’t be returning unless it’s free, but that’s even pushing it too.

Old course and layout is too close. The green and doe tee boxes are within 15-20 feet or closer. You can hear the tee boxes hitting and when your putting : it can affect you.

Fun, Flat Course!

Fun, Flat Course!
Should be able to bogie/birdie or par every hole (simple layout).
Actually played the front 9 solo in one hour. Back 9 had slow players stacked up all the way through (foursomes AND fivesomes).

Mediocre round

Course layout isn’t great, but the lack of attention it gets hurts. Also had some weird experiences with homeless and drunk people on the course. I’d play again if it’s cheap, but that’s probably it

Dumpy

Pro shop empty Spray paint on holes just loooks like a dump,crappy tee boxes. The one bathroom on the course should be condemned seriously it’s so bad. Not worth the money spend another $10 and go to a better course.
