My favorite local course.

Lake Erie Golf Course is in a great, quiet and peaceful location, full of wildlife. The course is usually very well maintained, but this season has started out super wet, so it is a little rough this spring. This is very flat course, carved out of what is basically a forest. It plays pretty easy, but hit your shots straight or you will lose a lot of balls. The fairways are tree lined with heavy grass borders, and there are only a couple of holes where parallel fairways come near to each other(lots of woods all around). The clubhouse doesn't offer much more than hot dogs, sandwiches and reasonably priced cans of beer, but what more do you really need? There is a bar with a good menu, right down the street for after your round.

Needs New Staff

The course was in mediocre shape, a lot of standing water (not their fault).. They tried to bill me full price after I paid in full with Golf Now, so I questioned what was going on, Golf Now had overbooked. They weren’t going to let me out even after I showed them the receipt. I told them I wasn’t paying full price as I had already paid. I told the guy that if there is a problem it’s between their vendor and the course management I have nothing to do with it. Very frustrating, took 30 minutes to get fixed.

Rangers followed us around the course, very stressful, the dude went off on me for parking close to the green, it was 20’ from the green in the rough. Overall the course is nice but the staff jumps on you for trivial nonsense which ruins your day. Fifth time playing here and the staff has been rude every time. Won’t be back.

Nice course. Try and play on a non-windy day because being by the water the wind is kicked up a notch out there making some long holes feel even longer. Greens were great, fairways were great. Tee boxes were in fair condition. Staff was super friendly and homemade cookies in the club house are a steal! Highly recommend this course

Slow pace of play, slow guy working counter

I’m sitting here at 10:52, still waiting to tee off for my 10:48. The 10:40 showed up at 11am and got moved in front of us. The guy working the counter said “nothing I can do for you” I will never in my life come back to this god forsaken golf course..

Snobs

Lake Erie metropark golf course is always in great condition. With lake Erie itself being soo close, any rain pretty much floods the course and don't expect too many not soo windy days. The staff and local golfers always are very snobby and uppity not a problem at any other course but always has been a problem here for the 3 years I've golfed here. The fairways and greens keep you coming back, but the management of tee times and no flexibility on teeing off on the back 9 constantly has you crowded front and back people will play up on you and try to force single players in your group. Beautiful greens and fairways, not too challenging layout but challenging dealing with surrounding golfers and poor customer relations with staff.

Solid course

The course is nice, lots of wetlands which come into play. The staff though seems to be irritated with people who use the discount. They are a bit too snooty for me, I'll probably find somewhere else to play next time.

Another Nice Round

Always enjoy playing Lake Erie Metropark. Play it about once a week. Even though it is relatively flat, it is always a challenge from the white tees. Recommend

Fun experience

This is a very playable course, although most greens are difficult to reach in regulation. The fairways are wide, the greens receptive. There has been a fair amount of rain lately and some spots were soggy, but overall, drained pretty well. The only drawback for us was the excessive number of Canada Geese and their droppings everywhere you walked. True, the course is built in what appears to be a conservation area, but golf and poop really don’t mix that well. It appears to have been a healthy breeding season and it seems, without measures, that it will only get worse.

Nice track

Typically play 1st tee time of the day on weekends. Course was in great shape, rough was a bit longer than usual, but I'm assuming because of all the recent rain. Greens rolled great, Sunday pin placements are a bit ridiculous, nearly all the pins were directly on heavy slope or the apex of the greens. Hoping that was a one time thing, but overall, love the course

Needs a few weeks

Course very wet and greens as shaggy as a 1970's living room carpet.' Clearly they need to lower the mower blades. Great layout but needs a few weeks to dry out. Will return under the promise that greens run faster than a 4 on stimp meter.
