A great course on the shore of Lake Erie
Sawmill Creek is a big course situated on Lake Erie. When the winds are from the north you can hear the roar of the waves. The greens are huge, undulating and can be very fast. It used to be a much more open course but now the trees have matured and there is a premium on accuracy off the tee. There are a few signature holes, most notably the par-3 7th and the par-5 number 12. This course will require you to hit most of the clubs in your bag. There are several tee boxes to suit any golfers abilities. It has been taken over by Cedar Point, a large corporation with deep pockets, so I'm assuming the course will get even better over time. I am blessed to live 5 minutes away!
It would be a 5 if they hadn’t just punched the greens.
Great course, gets wet quickly on back 9although they are working to improve this. Needs new or more sand in the bunkers.

We take customer feedback very seriously at our course. Please reach out to our team in the golf shop and tell us what's on your mind.
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.
Thank you so much for leaving us with your feedback. We value our customer experience, so your review is important to us. Please know the current conditions are by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We will continue to work towards a 5-star experience and we hope to see you back!
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"!
The pub management needs a more personable manager!!!

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.
