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.

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

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.

Booked an 8:40am tee time. Arrived and checked in at 8:30. Found out there were 7 groups still waiting to tee off due to frost. Temperatures are averaging 40 degrees early in the day but for some reason management decided 7:30am Would be a good time to start booking tee times. First group made it off at 9:30. It wasn't until after 10am before we were able to hit the course, an hour and 30 minutes after our scheduled time. Temperatures haven't been fluctuating, so not much of an excuse for this oversight. Overall good course and friendly staff, but they need to manage their times more responsibly. Won't go back to this course.

Air was thick and muggy but we made it thru our 18 hole round in time before the rains came.

My neighbor and myself generally play 3 or 4 nearby courses each year and Lake Erie Metropark golf course is still our favorite.

Booked on Golfnow for an early Sunday tee time based on reviews on golfadvisor. What a gem of a course. You get your money's worth. The course was in very good condition. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were well cared for. Many yardage choices based on ability. The Metropark system should be proud of this one. Hats off to the grounds and greens keeper as well as the course staff. Thank you for a wonderful experience. I'll definitely be back!

This course is always well manicured. It has plenty of character with plenty of room to play. Although this course does seem to swallow about 4 of my balls everytime I play ithas nothing to do with the course. Yes, there is plenty of cat tails and swampy areas that come into play but you have to hit it pretty bad of line to get into trouble. Course knowledge is extremely helpful here since some of the doglegs and blind tee shots are blind. Well worth playing. Bring bug spray.

Course is quite open with fairways that are easy to find. Greens relativity large but can be tricky. Paired up with a couple of nice guys that made the round more enjoyable. Best Metro course I have played. Only one complaint is that you can't book a "Hot Deal" as a single. This is true a most Metro Courses. They would fill tee sheet if they allowed singles these Hot deals.
