So much promise

Oh boy,
I want to to give a good review, but my word do these guys make it tough. Let’s start with course - could be great, all the ingredients are there, but the chef is delinquent or incompetent. Crappy tee boxes, impossible to distinguish between fairways and rough and just recently, a bunch of trees mowed down for what I assume is the latest in expected aesthetics. Balls to that, you numpties. Leave nature alone, it was the saving grace of this faded dame. Now, the place is filled with weeds, stumps, bare dirt and the busted flush of 5+ hour rounds with unapologetic turf buggerers and nonexistent rangers. A $40 round may be presented as a public service in these COVID-straightened times, but when a course is raking it in due to rampant demand even at these prices, why should the many deficiencies of Stow be excused? For the love of whatever you consider holy Stow management, take this place back to its former glory. You have a gem, don’t let it crack under the weight of neglected equipment, optimistic profit projections and an inflated sense of duty to “the ordinary golfer “. Speaking as one of the latter, we need you to be what you were, not a dollar store caricature of yourself

Stow North

Tee boxes and some spots in fairways were in pretty rough shape. Greens were slow and bumpy

Way to slow and course beat up

Good deal as far as a cheap round but the course has some issues in spots and the groups are stacked one on top of each other. Waiting to hit on every shot isn’t fun

Not worth the money

$70 is way too much to be charging for this course in the condition it's in. All of the greens have numerous dead spots. Most of the tee boxes are completely worn down to dirt. One of the tee boxes didn't even have the white or blue tee markers.

Disappointing Round

Kept hearing how about how great Stow Acres is, However played the south course for the first time and probably will not play again. Most tee boxes were unkept. Most w/ almost rough grass length, or just straight dirt. Greens were extremely burnt. There are better courses out there. Maybe the north course is better?

Good value for your money I guess..

Played the South and overall my experience was good. Certain boxes need some TLC along with a few greens. Condition overall was good considering the lack of rain we’ve had.

Really enjoyed the layout of the North course. Tee boxes were in pretty bad condition though.

Stow Sunday

Great layout, with long par 3’s and elevation changes. Could use a little sprucing up around the course.
