First Time Charm

This was the first time I played this course and was very happy that I did. The employees that I spoke with were nice and helpful. The course was in excellent condition. Nice lowcut fairways and quick greens. I will be playing this course again and will let my friends know too.

Always in good shape. Carts have chargers. Greens are really sloped. No range.

Sand traps and greens were awful. Fairways were very good.

The greens were very unfair. Many of the pins were part way up inclined greens that had hardly any grass. When putting up to the pin, even pin high, the ball would just roll back to your feet . If you were above the pin, the missed putts would just roll off the green no matter how softly they were hit. The sand traps had very little sand and all were in terrible condition. The fairways and tee boxes were in very good condition. A very challenging course. FYI to staff: The new golf carts are very nice. However, the pull down bag cover on our cart was installed incorrectly. It leaked where the cover was attached to the roof. Also the cover was installed so low it was difficult to pull down over the clubs.

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!!
