Manakiki Golf Course
Excellent metro parks course.
Tough tight tee shots especially from the tips fairways were in excellent condition greens on the back nine were in great condition front nine greens had just been aireated so still sandy and slow. Only complaint is that the pace of play is ridiculously slow could not even finsh my round in 4 hours with a 3:21 tee time.

Very good muni, in great shape, excellent value for the money.
This is a solid golf course, tough enough for better golfers, probably too much for beginners. The course as in good condition, and pace of play was very good. The staff were friendly and accomodating. And I got to meet some very nice guys I played with. It's my bonus for traveling all over the country.

Nice Day at Manakiki
Overall the course is in good shape and the pace of play was above average. Greens were very slow compared to the last time I was here in May. Clubhouse staff are very friendly and helpful; first tee starter needs to improve his "customer friendly" attitude. New tee box on #4 appears to be a good idea; #18 is a great finishing hole.

A classic course, Donald Ross design
Great muni course. Classic Donald Ross design, The terrain is tough and beautiful, it is a challenging course that requires a thoughtful plan to score well. All of the metropark courses are maintained quite well, Manakiki is no different. It gets a lot of play, and can be slow from time to time. Rated consistantly in the top ten courses in NEO by golfclevelandohio. I have played several Donald Ross designs, and I am never disappointed. There are a lot of fun shots to be had on this course.

Challenging course yet enjoyable to plU
This is one if my favorite courses. The course is in excellent shape with nicely trimmed fairways and not too high of rough as well. The greens are nice sizes and can be tricky if above the pin.
My only negative ishole two where tree that is about 10 yards in front of hole needs to be trimmed. Last couple of times I have played here that tree has knocked my ball down. I like to play a nice 7-8 yard draw and tee box is short width wise and the tree limbs come into play.
I highly recommend Manakiki.
I will be back.

This course is a great old Donald Ross design. It's a good challenge and conditions are always great. Everything about this place is awesome except for the starter. He's an unpleasant person full of sarcasm and snide comments. It's really not the start I'm looking for in a great round of golf. Don't let that stop you from playing here though this course is amazing.

Played the course for the first time Sunday, August 31th. Will play again. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the pace of play. When you have groups walking and other groups riding it slows way down.

Cleveland Metro courses
Good course for the $$$$$$$. A little too tough for the beginner. Lot of blind holes and rough terrain. I enjoyed playing with a 96 year old gentleman they paired me with. Lloyd enjoyed the game, played quickly, and knew all the right things to do. It didn't hurt my ego that he beat me on 3 out of the first 5 holes. Fun, Fun , Fun.
