It's has been a long time since I had played the course but it has only gotten better with age. The course was in great shape even though it was healing from airlifting. The start was very good and kept the up tee times on time.

Good course, but not in the best condition as it has been in the past! Extremely slow greens and a lot of fungus spots on the course.

Def worth playing.

Excellent layout. Course condition was good. Pace of play was rather slow but was holiday weekend. Being a twosome we’re paired with another group. I hate this and dish courses would quit doing it. I’m not a fan or golfing with strangers. Otherwise. Staff great. Bar clean and prices reasonable. Def worth playing if you’ve ever wanted to. Just have plenty of time and be prepared to golf with another group if you don’t have 3 or more with you.

Not what it used to be.

I've played here for years but this time the course was in really bad shape. The fairways are almost bare on many holes, the tee boxes are beat up pretty bad. We were behind the KSU golf team so it turned into a 4 1/2 hour round. Too many other courses in the area that are still in great shape and can get around in 4 hours or less.

I get that this is the KSU golf course but to give them the first tee time and have them back up the course is not acceptable. If they need to practice it should not be on weekends or holidays with the first tee times. I do hope the course conditions improve.

Solid course in NE Ohio

Some fairways have been hammered with rain/flooding and just really beat up. Tee boxes on some holes too. Greens in great shape though, staff is solid. Layout lived up to rep. Would recommend.

Fun course

Usually love this course, but it was cart path only. There was a lot of cut grass left all over fairway. Grass too tall off fairways. And it was very very busy. I’m sure cart path only held up the pace of play.. No carts in parking lot. I still give a decent review for I normally like the course.

Membership

I guess being a member an early morning tee time is out of the question. Tried at 12:06 am 3 days prior according to the rules and couldn't get on until after noon. They told me sorry they "missed the mark ".Tried again 2 weeks later at 4am three days prior and the best they got is 11:52 missing the mark again?

Peak Condition

I have started playing Windmill again this summer after spending previous years at Signature of Solon. I like to call Windmill “Signature of Ravenna” now. The course is in amazing shape this year after the new drainage system was added in. The course plays long and offers plenty of challenges for all levels. The staff is super friendly as well. Every person I have recommended this course to ended up loving it. Keep up the great work Windmill!
