Rated 4 out of 5 by skaczynski Beautiful course, slow pace of play
I'm a big fan of the layout of the course, and it's very well maintained. I'd argue the layout is the nicest on the eastside of Cleveland. It feels like a private course.
With that said, it's only a great course to play if you have plenty of time. The pace of play kills me. There's a ranger out, but he rarely moves play along. Often times I think they overbook, but in the case of this round we had a very slow group in front of us. A guy in our group was playing his third round of golf ever and we were still waiting on every tee. The group in front of us had nobody in front of them. They were playing from the black tees and losing balls consistently. It happens, but it's the job of the course to move that group along - they probably added 45+ minutes to our round.
I also don't love that it's surrounded by houses and roads, but there's nothing the course can do about that.
Again, I recommend this course because it's a wonderfully designed layout, but you have to be ready to wait. For me it's worth the wait, for some it might not be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by u449877587 Very Nice Golf Course
Course was in great shape, fairways lush and the greens consistent. I was very impressed with this course and will definitely return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pdgoblue25 One of the best courses in NE Ohio, 5 hour round every single time
This course is gorgeous and challenging. A Donald Ross gem.
However, it will be a 5 hour round every. single. time you play here. There are simply too many people who play this course who do not possess the level of play that is required.
If you play on the weekend after 9am, prepare yourself for a 5 1/2 hour round.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OhioGolfer821 Horrible Staff / Great Course / Will Never Play There Again
My father and I don't get to play golf together often so decided to get a 7:39am tee time the other morning for late Father's Day together. The Starter paired us with an older walking gentleman. We asked if we could just play us two since the front desk said course was pretty open. Starter was rude telling us no, raised his voice multiple times, and interrupted us every time we tried to speak. At the turn he made sure to badger us again until we drove off to hole 10. HE WAS SO RUDE I VOW TO NEVER PLAY THERE AGAIN - Despite the course in great shape and love the lay-out. It's sad one person can ruin it for us. I am scratch and shot 72 and my father is a 12 cap and shot 83.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scottcastleberry Had a blast
except for pace of play it was one of the nicest courses i've played. The night before it rained an inch and a half but the fairways and greens were perfect. the greens were running an 11 on the stimp meter which i loved. when i go back to Ohio i will definitly play there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shcmarcom Really nice course
I have played Manakiki at least a couple of times a year since 1980 and it continues to be a great place to play. In recent years, the Metroparks people have rebuilt many of the holes, making them spectacular to look at and fun to play, although several (10 and 18, expecially) of the holes look downright scary from the tee. This time out I saw several new tee boxes that make for very different approaches to the same holes. The rain this year has helped to create really good conditions. And we got a fantastic rate ($18 for 18 holes with cart and 12:45 on a Sunday) from GolfNow.
