Another Fine Day at Shale Creek
Our foursome played here last year and decided to play it again on another golf trip to Ohio. We found the conditions even better than last year and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. One of our guys that played it for the first time said he could play Shale Creek every day. We played an extra 9 in the afternoon after a great lunch in the grill room. We will Definitely be back!!

Great Layout! Excellent Condition
Love playing this course. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens are always well groomed. Pin placement challenging. Today for some reason it seems they did not manage the pace of play. Had a twosome playing way too slow three groups up and no ranger in sight to speed them up. My buddy and I were forced to skip two holes in order to get to a better pace of play. If this course needed to do one thing better is manage the pace of play.
One of nicest courses in the area. I try to play it whenever i am in town. Tee’s for everyone.
Marginal at best
There was no staff to speak of. Waited for nearly 5 minutes for someone to show up in the pro shop. No ranger or starter. Just get in the cart and a free for all on the course. Slower than any round I have played this year. Greens were slower and bumpier than any other course I have played in the area. For what is supposed to be a higher end public facility it functions as a very low end course. You can tell there’s just no money left. I don’t know how they even keep the course open.
I booked a round on GolfNow, and was told the rest of my group would be there soon. After telling the starter I was alone, he let me out early, playing alone in the morning, to avoid any slowdowns. I work overnights, so that was greatly appreciated. All the employees were friendly, from when I arrived, as I finished my round, and when I was leaving.
The course was in great shape, and the greens were soft yet fast. I had my best putting round in a long time.
If you’re not a long hitter off the tee (which I am not), there will be a few times your second shot will be a layup. Then it’s generally an easy iron onto the green. Course management is very important at Shale Creek! I can’t wait to play it again.
Always in great shape
Shale creek is always in great shape. Weather your playing after a drought or in this case after tons of rain. The course always prevails. There was heavy rain most of he night and until 10:15. Our tee time was at 8:50. Everyone else left the course but we waited out the storm and tees off right before the rain quit. Within 3 holes most of the standing water was all gone and the putts were stick pretty quick even tho the greens were wet. I play this course 6-10 times a year at full price or close to it, this day we got a hot deal and I got the course for half price. We weren’t able to take advantage this time, but one of the best things about this course is that they have free range balls. I always get here 90 min early to hit the range, chip, and putt before my rounds. The single downfall this time around was that even at the turn they had nothing at all to snack on as far as even a hot dog. But all in all shale creek is always a great experience.
