VERY wet and better to be a member
The course conditions were low because it was super wet out; late fall golf. If not for the cart path/rough only play it would have received 5 stars. Realize it’s a country club that public can play and I appreciate this but we felt rushed by members that went out as singles (3 separate singles) behind our group and let each of them play through. Highly recommend par 3 #16 where I hit my first ever hole in one; witnessed by my son and brother in law.
Went here because my brother in law recommended it. He did say it had been a long while since he had golfed here. People on the course said it used to be real nice but has went down hill recently. First time golfing here myself. Tee box’s where patchy and had chunks missing. Not divots. Chunks. Fairways were hard as a rock and the grass was so short it was like hitting off asphalt. There seemed to be a lot of dead spots everywhere from standing water going left unchecked. First cut on greens had not been cut for a while. Tufts and patches of grass in the first cut around greens. Greens where hard as concrete. I hit off the tee box on a par 3 that was 70ft above the green and 200 yards out. I hit the green and the ball bounced 6 ft in the air and rolled just off the backside. As I came up to the green with divot tool in hand to fix my divot. There wasn’t one to fix. The course has a nice layout. A lot of potential but is in disrepair right now. Not one that I will recommend or go out of my way to patronize again. Staff wasn’t super friendly either. But my main focus is the golf.
First and last time.
Staff was rude! People swimming in the water Hazzard while we're hitting.. Pace was decent but was stacked with foursomes. Will not be backed. Felt very disrespected.
Rough in good condition but is to long. Hard to find a ball in it. Slows down play.
To many over hanging limbs very close to the fairway and not far from the tee box.
Sand traps are very bad. With very little sand. It’s almost like hitting out of clay.
Greens & fairways are in good condition.
Nice course with extremely nice people
Slowest play I have ever experienced here. They way overbooked the tee times. 2-3 groups deep at every tee box on front 9. Literally waiting 20 minutes to tee off at each hole. Pace was a little quicker on back nine, but still very slow>
Heather Downs has seen better days
Was stuck behind a group of 4 older people, one of which was a woman, and some of them were members. I was playing as a single and the group ahead of me was playing with another group of 4 ahead of them. Took me almost 4 hours to play! Usually can golf 18 in 2.5-3 hours! On the bright side, the weather was nice and people behind me were nice and agreed that it was ridiculous that they didn’t let me through. Probably won’t be back for awhile.
Mr Eric Simon
Have played this course numerous time’s the last couple years. The staff is as good as there is in the Toledo Ohio area. Today it was my son and I who played and enjoyed every minute. The only drawback was the two groups ahead of us being a foursome and a twosome who both struggled to allow our faster group to play through. The course could be better served to occasionally have a marshal make a course visit to assist slow play.
Again, the staff both inside and outside are as nice and helpful as any course we play during the year and are to be commended !
Thanks Eric and Jared Simon
Look...this course is okay, but definitely not what you may be expecting when you think “country club.” For the price we paid using a hot deal ($30) it was definitely worth it, but I wouldn’t pay much more than that to play here. That pretty much sums it up. Great for $30, but look elsewhere if you have to pay closer to $40 or more. I clicked “yes” to indicate that I would recommend this course to a friend because there was no neutral option, but as I said above, it depends on the deal.
very good course for the money!
former country club now a public course. very busy but pace was good!
Decent course with relatively benign lay out. The hot deal is a great value and absolutely worth taking them up on it.
