One of the hardest courses in Cleveland
This course is no joke. Many difficult holes with forced carries. I would not recommend a high handicapper play here. Considering the normal price, Im sure that will scare away most everyone anyway. That being said it is well taken care of and I enjoyed a peaceful round as a single. The staff was cordial which compared to the last time I played here, was a GIANT step forward.

If you are going to play here you better like doglegs. The fastest greens I have putted on all year, but they held and rolled true. Also on the small side, but it works for a course barely 6000 yards. This course is all about placement and if you hit the driver more than 200 leave it in the bag. There are maybe 4 holes where there is a benefit to hitting it. Donald Ross design is beautiful and challenging but need to be a good ball striker with the irons. I could play here once a year b/c of condition and value but not all the time. i understand why the course went public.

Challenging and fun!
Great course, great greens, and will test you! Definitely worth the price!

Not nearly as nice as prior years....
Fairways not as plush as last year and many of the bunkers without sand. Greens OK but too many ball marks.
Tried to get a beer after the 18 holes but staff said they were closed although they were still there. Not very customer friendly.

Bring your A game!!
Play this course in a weekly league and as much as I can otherwise,it never ceases to challenge your game.The holes force you to land in play for an attempt to get on in regulation,but getting to these greens is only half the battle,they are brutal!!Any area golfers looking for a challenge need to play this course.

Very long Saturday
Golfnow should not schedule the first tee time after an outing.
There should have been staff on hand to move the outing along and not allow them to have a sit down lunch at the turn??
Made for a very long and frustrating round of golf. It was not worth the discount that Golfnow provided given the amount of time it took to play.
