Little Mountain Country Club
Awesome Layout that gets no play in the fall apparently.
Played after a long time wanting to get up here to try it out. It definitely has the modern style golf design to it. The greens were firm and fast, I know some said they were terrible and others said they were great, but if there was a rough spot there was no pin near it. Really besides the bunkers, which they are in the process of renovating,, the course is as good of shape as you could expect a course in Ohio to be in the fall. I played in 2:20 as a single, mainly because of the difficulty of the course however some holes play 30 yards
+ shorter than the card with the downhill holes such as the last 450 par 4, but hit driver 280 (normally 250) then was left with 170 in fairly manageable I'd say. There are some really spectacular holes here and houses that will make you want to puke because they are so extravagant (none come into play). I made an hour drive to play and would do it again, hopefully I can bring some buddies back to play next time.

Course seemed to be under reno, lots of bunkers had huge rocks in them which made them dangerous or unplayable.
Greens rolled true and fast, best part of the course.
No cart person on the course
Staff was just present, nothing special going on there.
Overall, as a tourist it's a great track to play, especially for the price! I paid $26 USD thru GN.

What happened to the 5 Star course I remember?
Little Mountain used to be an awesome experience. Not this time. The bunkers were unplayable. There had to be standing water in at least 80% of them. I played with another guy and we must have lost at least 6 balls in them!
The course is a great layout but the greens were just OK. The bunkers were shot! Cart path only made it a longer round. I think we both gave up scoring after the 4th lost ball bunker. Just try to enjoy the round without keeping score if you're going to play here anytime in 2014.
Even the 19th hole is different. Definitely not what it used to be!

needs a lot of work
A great layout but course is lacking in conditioning. Greens were not so good . Traps were an absolute disgrace. If course can not maintain traps they should eliminate 1/2 of the. This has not changed from 2 years ago. Very disappointed

Unique, well done course. Lots of bunkers, paved cart paths.

Great layout, horrible maintenance issues
We played this course 2-3 days after a heavy rainstorm. Unfortunately, this left half of the bunkers underwater or muddied and the 18th hole essentially unplayable due to a water (sewer) line break on the fairway that left the hole in embarrassing shape.
The maintenance problems were very disappointing as the course itself has great "bones" - rolling hills, challenging trap placement, deep bunkers and quality greens. I would love to play the course if/when it is in prime shape but don't know if that's an unreal expectation.

Greens and Rangers
Most of the greens were back to normal. The 2 that weren't still rolled decently.
They could use some rangers to monitor course. Group in front of us just about drove carts on greens. On the par 3 14th 1 guy drove cart behind green and got hung up on curb when leaving. Swearing at us for not helping him after his group left him. People like this just ruin a nice course.

The greens, fairways and rough were in great shape and very enjoyable to play. But with all the bunkers that are part of this courses design get it togethe!. At best 50% are unplayable and 30% look like construction sites. Someone needs to come up with a solution for this problem. Every year that passes it just gets worse.
