Greens on the verge of dying

Great layout but unfortunately way overpriced for greens that in multiple locations appear to be dying/infected with some kinda fungus. Very disappointing as it was one of the better courses in the area. If they don’t address this soon you might as well just blow up the greens because they won’t be puttable. . Fairways, tee boxes were good. Cart paths have vastly improved. But the greens are very concerning.

5 hr round

FMs layout is one of the best anywhere, however 5 hr rounds, fairways cut way too close and damaged greens are your thing then go for it. I might recommend a friend play the course, then again I may not.

Great course

I really enjoy this course. The double dog leg par 5's are extremely challenging to par, especially since the trees in front of the greens are very mature and impossible to hit over.

Improvements made

The cart paths and bridges used to be in very bad shape but have been very much improved and repaired which makes getting around the course more pleasant. Good that a lot of tall growth has been either removed or cut back to make getting to the green easier. Some greens still need repair in a few spots. Overall, a much improved experience on a good - and tough - golf course.

Poor greens

There was maybe 1 green that wasn’t laden with rot. Lots of bare patches.

Not as good as I’m years past

This course has always been at the high end for area courses. The course and grounds are not as well kept especially for the prices.

Fowler’s Used to Be Amazing..

This course has a lot of great aspects..like design, layout and most maintenance. They are losing the greens with several Silver Dollar spots on every single green that they have painted green to attempt to hide. The greens are concerning to me, as I am afraid they may have to kill them and start over if they cannot resolve the Silver Dollar problem. It’s such a great layout and is so frustrating to see the sand being of poor quality/quantity and the greens starting to go..ballsy of them to charge $85 for a morning ‘weekend’ round IMO.

Disappointing

Decided to splurge and pay $85 to play a courses that has the reputation as being one of the premier courses in Northeastern OH. I was very disappointed. Most of the greens showed signs of severe disease (see image). Greens were also very slow; appeared not to have been cut the day before. Sand traps lacked sand, some had rocks and pebbles or standing water and had not been racked in days (see image). Rough was high and had more clover than you would expect at a premier course. Bathrooms were not clean.

New friends

The round was enjoyable - especially the wonderful threesome I got to play with. Course was in good shape, staff was friendly.
Pace of play was not brisk - not brutally slow, but still slower than I would prefer. 5+ hour round.
