Comments: Played Sweetbriar Legacy last week. Though the t's, fairways, and greens were in good shape, the rough was 5-6 inches. A lot of it was just in front of the green or surrounding it. I hit an approach shot on one hole from about a 100 yards and it landed in that rough. When we got up there we couldn't find it. Overpriced and rough took all the fun out of the course.

Comments: What's up with your top 20?
The Quarry? Nice course. Best course in NEO? Not even close. Best course in Stark County? Not even maybe.
The Sanctuary-ie Bob O' Links with a few new holes. You may want to reread your review of Bob O' Link...
Serious players from this area know that Seven Hills is easily the best public course in Stark. I don't even understand your rating for Seven Hills. Quirky holes? I'm assuming you are speaking of the signature bridge hole. There is nothing quirky about it. It is a short, driveable for big hitters, par 4 with risk and reward. Other than that, the course is a classic design lined with trees and great views. It's always in immaculate shape and has arguably the nicest and fastest greens of any course in NEO. FYI - They haven'y had yardage books in the carts for about 5 years now.
You should really get out and play these courses more often before you offer reccomendations to folks who may be traveling great distances to courses in this area.
Comments: Have been playing golf in the area for 20 years, Played 2 fantastic courses for the first time this week. Madison Country Club is a beautiful course with some very fast greens. Gleneagles is AMAZING! The fairways are more plush than even Fowlers - just a terrific golf course. 1 question, why are Painesvile C.C. and Erie Shores golf course not mentioned? Dollar for dollar they are very nice courses and always in tip top condition.

Comments: Played Sugar Bush in Garretisville for the first time yesterday. This course is a great layout and suitable for all skill levels. Beautiful rolling terrain, every hole is different, great condition. I'm definitely adding it to my must play list at least a couple of times a year. The only disappointment was the slow greens. They could make this course brutally tough if they wanted to as some greens are severely sloped. I'm sure in order to speed-up play they elected to slow the greens down, but they should speed them up at least a little.
Comments: Our foursome just played Hawk's Nest down in Creston....what a great track in absolutely beautiful shape...well worth the drive from I271 & I 480...about 50 mins on a Sunday morning. This is a can't miss for most golfers...low handicappers will be adequately challenged, everyone else will be pleased that they weren't beat up. Fabulous golf!!
Comments: Special Olympics Golfer in need of longer clubs. My 6'1" step-son has been using my very old clubs (I'm 5'9". He golfs for the Lorain County Special Olympics team. If anyone has or knows someone who might be willing to donate clubs they no longer use (made for RH golfer around 6ft), PLEASE contract me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH for any help you can provide!

Comments: Played RAWIGA last week. What a nice course. Played on a weekday, 23 for 18 and a cart with a dog and drink at the turn. Got out early, just a twosome, played in 3 1/2 hours. Great condition, nice variety of holes and people that actually wave faster players through. Going back next week.
Comments: We played Springvale in North Olmsted last week. The course has never looked better. T-s, fairways, and greens were in great shape. Few rough spots from all the heavy rain we had this year, but they were patching them and they were coming along nicely. 3 years ago I vowed to never play the place again. Aside from the money they invested in the course, you can clearly see what good management can do for a course.
