Review of Walden Ponds Golf Club

Played On 06/04/2018
I Recommend This Course
4.0

Perfect day for golf on a nice course

What would have made this a perfect rating were the lack of bona fide sand in the bunkers. The material is a mixture of sand and dirt, some more dirt than sand and when the dirt dries is makes the balls stand up when it comes to rest. In places the rough is too long may be due to excessive rain the previous week.

Slow play

Always enjoyed play this course but today, Aug 30th was not a good day because of slow play. At times there were three groups backed up on one tee and at least 1 1/2 to 2 hole gap two groups ahead of us and no marshall to move them along. After our round, I stopped a roving starter who was looking for groups to go out and he mentioned that two guys didn't show for work that day....I said well the head pro should have gone out on the course to inspect pace of play instead of sitting in his office all day! That is bad judgement Jack on your part!

No Marshall Day!

Excellent course layout by Dr. Michael Hurdzan and one of my favorites to play but today with no Marshall to speed play along it took us 5:15 to play 18. Two groups ahead of us had a 2+ hole average gap. Where is the player's assistant. Guys behind our group said they won't be coming back and that is a shame. Granted the course was crowded but with two guys who did not show for work is unacceptable. The course pro should have been out there instead of sitting in the office!!!

Arthur Hills At Palmetto Hall

Bring you long balls as you will need it from the blues. Excellent course and layout. Very challenging for me, a 9 handicap. I am not a long ball hitter which put pressure on my short game. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Review of Lakeside/Meadows at Shaker Run Golf Club

While the course has improved its condition since I last played it 3 years ago, there were a significant amount of water albeit from the expected heat wave fro the next three days, The course in places was really soaked and 2 to 3 inches of water in the sand traps. Meadows have many sand traps with weeds growing in them and on the Woodside, too many ball marks on the green and a large number of divots in the fairway that golfers did not sand down. The layout is exceptional but it still needs a lot of work to get back to number 1 in the state of Ohio which it held for quite some time. Good luck!

I don't think this course was ever #1 in Ohio.
