The Greens!

I am a huge fan or this course, but make sure you KEEP IT BELOW THE HOLE! The greens are lightning quick. The ball will easily roll off the green if your not careful

Perfect day for golf, some wicked, borderline unplayable, pin locations

First time playing Chardon Lakes and it won't be the last. Course was in GREAT shape. Tight fairways on some shots, and some holes, especially #7, nearly unplayable pin locations. Greens were rolling fast and pure though so the issue was merely where the pin was placed, nothing more. Speaking of putting, this course will test your putting skills give breaks and contours.

Pace of play was 4 hours for 18.

Good test of one's skills!

The course was in excellent shape even after the rain. Damp/soggy in places, but overall drained very well. Enjoyed my round, some holes were very challenging, while others had "blind " tee shots. Greens were in excellent condition; I would definitely play again!!
