Must play this course more than once. GPS worked great. Greens are fast and run true n smooth. Fairways are tight and run your drives to the max. Can't say one bad thing about this course. All inside facilities are excellent. I'LLLLL be bock !!!!!!
Did not have a chance to sample the food or beverages this trip.

Worth the drive
Very nice course and worth the 1 hr. drive eventough weather was poor-- rained and windy for 5-6 holes but course was in great shape and challenging. Will be back in the summer months

The course is a premium course. Well maintained fairways , true speedy greens and great clubhouse and driving range. We took advantage of forward placed tees to shoot 74/78. Very enjoyable afternoon. Well worth the price.

I play Shale a handful of times every summer and usually have a great experience. This time, not so good. Weather was great, course was beautiful, but SLOW, SLOW, SLOW. Played as a two some and took 5 hours! Three groups in front didn't know how to go to their ball and be ready to hit. A ranger would have been great to help speed them up. I know the starter has GPS in his cart and can see all the carts logged jammed... Someone should have come out to move it along or let us by. We tried to move ahead, but the groups in front were not friendly and didn't think they were the ones playing slow... They were. I'll try Shale again, maybe not on a Sunday with perfect weather when the Browns are on a bye week though!

Beautiful challenging course. Had no problems with the golf now tee time like I have had before at other courses. Pace of play was a little slow but that will happen on a Thursday.

My NEW favorite course
Played Shale Creek on a Saturday afternoon. Check in went smooth. You don't have to pay for range balls. (Nice!# The course was fantastic. I loved the layout. Greens were fast and rolled true. Lots of elevation changes and sidehill lies. Bunkers were mostly immaculate looking. (I was fortunate to avoid them.) Its a little bit of a hike being that its all the way in Medina. It was worth the drive and I cant wait to get back. The green fee is a little steep but you get what you pay for. One thing that was disappointing was the little snack bar they have at the turn was just closing for the day at 4:00! C'mon man. We were hungry and wanted to get food.

A Good Test
The course was in excellent condition and the facilities and amenities are first class. This is a course avid golfers should play.

Great course and condition
Course was beautiful, and in great shape. It was worth both the money and drive (it is 45 minutes from my house). I am sure i will be back at least 1 or 2 times a year from now on.
