Good for everyone
Blind greens for experienced, wide open for beginners! Excellent course layout and greens! I could see this getting a little crowded at times.
Great Condition Good Challenge
This is for sure one of the nicer public courses in the area. It's always in great shape and the greens roll consistent from hole to hole. It's too hilly for my taste so if you like lots of hills, you'll be pleased.
I usually shoot in the low 40's for 9 and on this course I can go above or below that depending on hole location so I like the challenge it provides.
great course, great condition. tee boxes and greens are always perfect. You won't be disappointed playing at Firestone 9!
Golf with My Son
My son was in from Cincy and we had a great morning on the golf course. It was in fabulous condition and the greens were lightning quick! Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
Great public course
Owned by the same people who run Firestone CC. Conditions are always great. Greens fast and true. Very open course, great for those with higher handicaps as not a lot of trouble you can get into. Love playing here and will be back again and again.
Well maintained and Fun
Fun little course. Well maintained. Elevation changes make it fun. Nice open layout.
Great conditions and a lot of fun
From the red tees, at least, this is a pretty easy course. That said, after the first two holes, the changes in elevation, blind shots, and some sloping fairways still "allow" you to get into some trouble with errant shots.
Although this is a public course, I think it is maintained by Firestone CC. The conditions are excellent, with tight fairways (for a public course) and fast but true greens, a real joy to putt on.
There were a lot of golfers out on this lovely day, but we moved along, with some short waits on the tees. Since I was a single I played with two other Golf Now patrons (the course won't reserve a tee time for a single), who were friendly, easy going, and good golfers, so that was a plus.
Since I don't live in Akron, I'm happy to have found an enjoyable course where I can play nine holes when I visit.
I should add that having played here a few times, I have encountered both helpful and brusque staff. So it depends on who's on for the day.
The staff here was very unfriendly, and in some cases downright rude. They also scheduled several parties during the same tee time, causing for a delayed game. My overall experience here was poor and I will definitely not be returning.
Course was in good shape
Greens were really nice. Although fairway was pretty long and really penalized you if you hit it there but I’m guessing it was from all the rain the previous week and they couldn’t get to mowing it.
