Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to play today. I’m disappointed the weather broke very late and I didn’t have a chance to cancel. So I wound up losing my fee.

Pace of play

Course layout is excellent. Greens were quick but not as smooth as one would expect after paying 60$. Quite a few divots that weren’t able to heal effectively. Hungry? At the turn it was a 10 min wait for hot dogs. Pace of play was slower than you could imagine. No ranger.

Fairways, rough, layout =perfect

Pace of play, amenities, divots on the greens= below average

Would play here again

Shale nice, but wet fairways & greens

I tend to give good reviews when score is good, and today was great tee2green. I had a few 3putts; Bogied all par 5s, but hit all par 3s (not my norm for either). Pace-of-play was slow, but couple of guys in my group had problems ........still tho, we played back9 behind a 5some

Good variation

This course brings a lot of different shots and hole layouts. I had a blast playing. It had rained the day before, so some of the grass was a little muddy/damp, but that can be forgiven of any course. Would recommend for an average golfer to feel a good challenge, but also be able to get some birdies.

The course is really nice. It’s matured well and plays very fair. Play was a bit slow. About the only negative on a beautiful Ohio day.

Good Course, not Great

I've been playing at Shale a couple times a season for the past 5 years. I played this past weekend in the GolfWeek Tour tournament. I will say the course has been in better shape in the past years, but it was still enjoyable.

Tees & Fairways: I'll give these a 4 out of 5. They're in good shape but would like to see the tees cleaned up a bit more with all the divots.

Greens: Like to put greens in their on category. They're a 3 out of 5 for me. The speed is nice but the amount of non repaired ball marks an a lot of foot traffic around cups from not being moved enough

Bunkers: 5 out of 5. Very well kept. Stay in great shape even without bunker rakes this year due to covid

Overall I enjoy the course although it has slipped a bit over the last couple seasons
