A tale of 2 sides
The front side was in perfect shape. Several holes on the back side were unplayable. They really need to figure out the draiage on those holes before I come back for 18. The staff was super friendly.
Would have been nice to know the greens were recently aerated. I don’t understand why this isn’t included when purchasing tee time.
Thank you for taking the time to review and leave us your feedback. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience you experienced when booking your tee time. Our goal is to provide our golfers with all relevant information when booking their round online. We apologize if we missed the mark. Please feel free to reach out to our staff in the pro shop for further resolution in this matter. We hope to hear from you soon.
500 yard par 5 from the Senior Tee! Greens had been areated recently. Long, narrow at times,. Shot 96, 10 over my typical round!
Really in a state of disrepair.
The money charged for the course is highway robbery compared to how poor the conditions are. I understand they were airing greens out but yikes - putting was impossible. You could easily miss a putt within a club length from a weird bounce. Several hazards in play on the fairways. Pro shop lady was extremely nice but the course really was in bad shape.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the course and rate us. We are going to pass on your feedback to the teams in charge so they can work to make changes.
Your feedback helps us do better. We are looking into this issue and hope to resolve it promptly.
Thank you for visiting Sawmill Creek Golf & Racquet Club. We hope you'll give us another try in the future.
Course in fantastic condition. Always enjoy playing here. Fazio did great with this design. Greens were smooth and speedy. Played the back tees and used every club in my bag. Stay below the hole. Highly recommend!!
Sawmill Creek Golf
Very good track and in pretty good condition. Although pace of play was a bit slow, staff was friendly and accommodating. Price for a Saturday was reasonable too and I would definitely recommend playing this course!
The course was in very good shape, especially the greens...nice! Nice breeze...sun & a few clouds...beautiful!
Overall a very enjoyable experience. As Arnold would say "I'll be back"!
Flooding can be an issue but course conditions are improving and amenities are greatly improved with the newly renovated clubhouse and restaurant.
The course layout is great and staff are very helpful and friendly.
Sawmill is back!
since the course is in new ownership management
its coming back to "resort quality" status without the resort high greens fee....greens and bunkers are in great shape...the fairways are lush and the overall experience
is wonderful..one minor comment is getting the 1/2 way
house back up and open..would speed up play and not have groups drive over to the main clubhouse at the turn.
Back and better than ever
I have played Sawmill many times over the years. A few years back they lost the back nine to water damage and things were not good. I went out there for the the first time since the back nine reopened last summer. Course was back in great shape. All 18 are in the best shape I can recall them ever being. I am from the west side of Cleveland and had a chance to talk to the staff about the need to advertise in the Cleveland area. They used to get a lot of play from people out of Cleveland, but I think that has dropped off since the issue with the back nine. With the discounts for Seniors and through the various online sites, it is a great deal for the money. The course is back and better than ever.
Friendly Staff & Great Course
Sawmill is a great course to play and everyone in the clubhouse extremely helpful!
Play SawMill w/o wind is nice
Course in great condition, but my game has declined so much that Sawmill plays long, especially the par3s. I can tell Cedar Fair is putting money into the course, improving drainage, especially #12&13. Huge greens, so a 3putt is a given ......otherwise fun layout.
Clubhouse is being remodeled, staff is awesome (especially mgr Abby), and fun day with random pairing.
Hot July Afternoon @ Sawmill
Course in great shape & holes 12&13 recovered from last week's flooding. The Hallway Hole #12 is still the toughest par 5 for this old guy. The wind was mild this hot 90* afternoon, but no excuse for 4 or 5 3putts. Staff (Abby & Sean) is awesome & GolfNow provides great Hot Deals, so hopefully that continues with the Cedar Point ownership.
I used to recommend this course to everyone. That will stop now. Their drainage system is a disaster. Standing water on most every hole after at least 2 days without heavy rain. They built a wall of dirt last year on number 12 but apparently not high enough. There were balls in the fairway you couldn't even reach with a ball retriever because the "puddles" were so large. I've seen a few courses reinvesting the windfall profits they have been enjoying since the pandemic but Sawmill is not one of them. Very sad.
Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We with the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens from the water on the course. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Sawmill Creek Golf & Racquet Club. We hope to see you again soon.
Horrible experience with a staff member
I used the bathrooms that unknowingly were only for marina guests. When I came out of the restroom a course worker was in a golf cart next to my husband's golf cart. He told me that the bathroom was only for marina guests. I, thinking he was joking, old him that I had a boat, but it was in Saundusky, He looked at me, drove past me in his cart and said "Don't do it again". I will never golf there again. and will certainly NOT recommend this course to any of my fellow golfers.
