Always a pleasure to play Big Met

However, the fairways were a little ratty and filled with clumps of freshly cut grass.

Slow play, shaggy greens, cups had grass growing around the edges. I’m not impressed

Always a solid choice

Great metroparks course in well kept condition. Lots of trees as it is in the middle if the Rocky River reservation, but surprisingly the woods don't majorly affect too many of the holes so its not an overly difficult of a course.

Walked

This was my first time at Big Met this season. Even though I walked it was great to see the newly paved cart paths. We started early, with a lot of dew on the fairways and as always the first hole is a nightmare with the sun in your eyes. The fairways and greens with in good shape, and bunkers have new sand in them. My only complaint is that Big Met is not supposed to be as difficult as Manikiki and Sleepy Hollow. Quit trying to make it that way by growing the rough that deep one less inch would still be punitive but not beyond the average golfer
