Grey Hawk 8/9/2017

The course is very challenging - wayward shots are penal. The course has recovered significantly from all the burned out spots and damaged greens from a couple years ago. It's a fun course but you need your A+ game to score. My only complaint would be that there were no yardage stakes. There were some yardages on sprinkler heads - but of course you can't see them unless you are next to it. So figuring out angles and yardages is difficult- even with gps.

Wonderful experience

Challenging test from the tips & found the tees, fairways & greens to be in great shape w/ speedy greens. Traps are in great shape w/ plenty of sand & holes w/ water - very intimidating. Par 5's are quite the beasts. Range / chipping / putting areas all in great condition & excellent facility to practice. Look forward to round #2 @ this challenging layout - well worth the drive from Wedtlake.

The best golf course ever

Grey hawk was the best golf course in Ohio.
Course condition, staff, course layout ... all of them are perfect for me to play.
and some hole are little bit moderate but mostly it was very challenging,
best golf course for intermediate golfers.

Getting Better

This course continues to improve. They have new ownership and it continues to bounce back. The tee boxes are in good shape, the greens are perfect, fast, and roll true. They would be even better if people would learn how to fix a ball mark. The fairways have grown back, and there are no more gigantic patches of brown grass across the fairways. There still are some patchy spots but they have reseeded this year to fix those brown spots and they should be gone next year. They have also removed dozens of sand traps which makes play a bit easier and probably saves them thousands on costs. Some bare spots and hard pan in the rough, but certain spots get really worn down by cart traffic. There were probably 12-15 people working on the course than playing it, and I got around in 3 1/2 hours. This is an amazing layout and big ball park (one of the few public courses around that is over 7000 from the back tees) It can give and it can take. You really need to play it a few times to know exactly where to hit the ball. The distance and the difficulty probably contribute to the lack of play, but they run so many specials this course is really affordable. Make the trip, it is worth it.

Fabulous First round

We played Grey Hawk today, and it exceeded our high expectations on all fronts. Course in great shape, pro shop folks were pleasant, friendly, accommodating. Snack bar gals and restaurant staff were all of those traits, too. Course offers nice mix of distance, placement, greens rolled true and were maintained well. Even though we are close to an hour away in Akron, we'll be back soon.

The course doesn't offer any forgiveness with no flat fairways, but it is a beautiful course.

Hidden Gem

This is a great golf course that I feel many people don't know about. It's a very challenging but fair course based on the multiple sets of tees (5) a player can choose to play based on their skill level. Many pretty, picturesque holes.

Pretty course but still needs work

I was curious to see how it was after not playing the past few years. After hearing the course was rebounding with new management I wanted to see for myself. The new management has made improvements but there is still always to go. Fairways were ok but still some patchy bare spots. The rough was rough. Good in spots and void of grass in others. The greens were good, rolled true. One of my favorite layouts in the area but this course still has a ways to go!

Great Hidden Gem

After reading countless reviews and looking a pictures of the course, i knew i had to check it out. There are obvious signs of neglect from the previous management, but you can tell the new ones are doing everything in the power to bring the course back up to tip top shape. But this did not affect my round in any way other than visual blemishes. Layout is absolutely gorgeous and challenging. As someone new to golf I had to really think about my choices as there is danger lurking around every corner. Lots of water and sand hazards so accuracy is a must. If you you suffer from a slice do not play here unless you have plenty of balls. Overall I was happy to find this course and cannot wait for the fall as I am sure the quality will have gone up dramatically from repairs.

Very nice course - worth giving a try!

Although the location isn't close to anything on the planet, this is a very nice track worth giving a try at least once! Very challenging but fair, and in very good condition.

It's getting better.

It was a nice course but the former management was not that good. There was a lot of bare spots on the fairways and even on the greens. The greens is fast and the fairways a lot much better after new management. $25 on Weekday and $35 on Weekend. Good course.

Grey Hawk 4/23/17

I've been playing Grey Hawk since it opened and I still enjoy every round. The course is in need of a little upkeep but it is spring in northern Ohio, so I suspect it will come along. I'll be there several more times this year. Enjoy!

True gem with lots of variety.

Course is visually challenging with knolls and undulations that can hide landing zones and play tricks on your eye. Water on many holes including a true island green and another island bunker green. Water hazards are offset by minimal tree trouble. Some greens are discolored with possible mold but does not affect putts. Don't let the rating fool you. This is one of the more challenging courses in the area but fun to play. Both length and accuracy are needed to score well. It will take guts to go for par 5 14th in two.

Average Vourse

Hole #9 was closed for major maintenance. They allowed you to play holes 1 thru 3 over again at the end of your round to make up for hole #9. Greens fee was $30 incl cart. Course was in fair condition. Good value for this time of year.

improved conditions

The greens are the best they have been in many years, fairways were aerated but playable. They have taken out sand traps and added drop areas to make the course much easier than original. I must say I liked it more difficult but much better for course revenue now.

Really nice...but

This course has a great layout. Not many trees so there's no leaves to be bothered with in the fall. Nice greens. Island par 3. Very friendly staff. Great clubhouse and restaurant. Only negative was there was a lot of burnt up spots in a few of the fairways.
