I would think the city of Mentor could do better!

For a city course, you guys need to step it up. Great staff at the course. Unfortunately they have large leagues that are allowed to do as they please because management doesn't... read more

Over the summer, the wife and I needed a day out of the house. I wanted to golf and had her drive me throughout the way. As a newer person to golf, the course is great! Very little hills, and gives you the ability to practice as you play. We went right after noon, all the leagues had just cleared... More

Nice city course. The city of Mentor took this course over a few years ago and have put some time and money into it and it shows. The new driving range is way better than the patch of grass they had at one time. The course has some challenges, but is still not as intimidating for a newer golfer that... More

This is a very nice course that you can play for a budget weekday price. Most of the holes are tree-lined demanding at least a pretty-good tee shot. (It does not have wide, slice-forgiving landing areas.) However, the greens and fairways are in excellent shape as of this writing in July. The staff was pleasant and accommodating to us as... More

This was the first time I had been there in years. I'm from eufaula, al and the two courses have poor grass. This course had full rich grass. Fairways were excellent and greens were outstanding. I had a great time. Even the snack bar was excellent. Golfed two times. Loved it.

For a city course, you guys need to step it up. Great staff at the course. Unfortunately they have large leagues that are allowed to do as they please because management doesn't want to lose the business. Foursome's from league's will all walk off the course to look for balls. It is a joke and the ranger doesn't say anything... More

Spend a few hours on this course, 30 minutes east of Cleveland in Mentor - and you will come away satisfied for sure. A flat, relatively easy course, with nicely laid out holes that offer just the right amount of challenge to the beginner or intermediate golfer. Low handicappers might be a bit frustrated by the lack of overall challenge.

This course is relatively short and not difficult, especially the front 9. The back nine is more challenging. Nice practice facility and the overall condition of the course is good.

They charge over $40 here for 18 w/ cart. You would think it would be a decent course at least. Its not! Is it the worst course in the area?...well...no. But it isn't one I would rank towards the top either. I guess if you're a resident of Mentor you get a few bucks off...still not worth it. Not when... More

This course is in need of some serious upkeep and improvement. The grass on the course is ful of weeds. Seems like the city doesn't put much money into making this a course that people would want to come and play. There are quite a few other courses in the area in the same price range that are in far... More
