Manakiki Golf Course
Awesome Donald Ross Classic!
Manakiki is classic Donald Ross, which means the greens can account for a lot of strokes. Course can play short, especially Par5s (why did I bogie 3?), but course in excellent condition. Nice hard fairways, but rough will tangle around ball, and especially around the greens, the key word is "commit" to the shot. The only negative thing I can even think of, is the general public doesn't realize how great this place is, evidenced by the un-raked sand bunkers from previous play.

put this on your bucket list
Only played 9 holes. After our t-shot on #10 the heavens let loose. Front nine the weather was great.
Front nine had lots of elevation changes. Greens are Don's best part of his courses--loved them. #1 hdcp hole you must keep in the fairway.

Beautiful old course. Lots of tricky contours on greens. Lots of elevation changes. Could use some gold tees for senior players like myself and one of my playing partners. Too long from whites and too short from womens.

Beautiful but slow
The course was in great shape but the pace of play was terrible. We waited on every tee box for at least 1 sometimes 2 groups in front of us. When we made the turn we made a comment to the starter who said the ranger had told him everything was fine. We had not seen the ranger in the entire 3 hours we spent on the front 9. When we told the started that his response was "we don't have a way to contact the ranger". I would go back, but i would only play very early AM, or late afternoon when it may not be as slow.

Always a solid play, this round was no exception. I love Manakiki and always seem to have a good time here. Friendly staff, well kept course, and a great day to boot!

Beautiful golf course
One of my favorite courses, the course is well maintained and always fun to play.

I have not played here in 6 or 7 years and the course was top notch. Hope to get back out soon probably the best conditioned public course on the east side of Cleveland.

This may be the gem of a public course on the Eastside of Cleveland.
