Ohio golf in November!

what a wonderful day. The course was pretty crowded, and I was paired up with some duffers who hit 2 balls from nearly every lie. Otherwise, had a wonderful day.

Great value for above average course.

First time playing here and it was a genuinely fun course layout. The jets flying over top give it a sense of wonder and aesthetic. You realize your out there to better your game but also enjoy yourself. Would recommend instantly.

No driving range, rude staff and sparse amenities

First I arrived and was met with handwritten ripped paper signs guiding you where to go, and then found out there’s no driving range. What course doesn’t have a driving range?! Then told I start on ten with no warm up. I go to start and obviously cold start isn’t a good start and the cart guy rolls up looks at me and says” This is for experts, do you even know how to play golf? “ I was pretty frustrated already so I stepped aside and let the regulars go ahead. I played through only to find the course torn up and ripped apart. Not maintained well. Will not return and don’t recommend to anyone who visits. Maybe being from a Miami Beach course I’m spoiled but I won’t be returning here. Far from exceptional service.
