SHALE CREEK GOLF CLUB (330) 723-8774
Ohio golf course review
Shale Creek, located just minutes from I-71, is easily accessible to golfers in Cleveland, Akron, Medina, and the surrounding areas. The course was built on beautiful rolling land with many small streams that wind through the property and cascade into the Rocky River, and features bent grass greens, tees, and fairways with strategic bunkers. Golfers will find that all 18 holes blend naturally into their environment and are fun and interesting to play.
Holes one through eight occupy an open area of natural rolling terrain and small streams. The Rocky River is in play on holes 10 through 15. The river and wetlands will create their own distinct character. The finishing holes are on a more traditional Ohio terrain, wooded and rolling, with lakes and streams to navigate. Putting surfaces are large and undulating with mounding surrounding and protecting them from an easy approach.
On course yardage marking includes sprinkler heads, markers on the fairways from 100, 150 and 200 yards from the center of the green. Conveniently, all carts include Uplink GPS, providing accurate distance from the cart to the center of the green as well as hazards, and other carts on the course. There are a total of 53 sand bunkers near the greens and fairways, and water comes into play on 12 holes.
With five sets of tee boxes, Shale creek is suitable for golfers of any skill set. Yardage and slopes measure 7026 yards from the tips with a slope of 134, 6652 yards/130 slope, 6338 yards, 125 slope, 5913 yards/120 slope for men and 128 for women, and 5006 yards with a slope of 118 for ladies playing from the forward tees. The longest par four is the 486 yard #1 handicapped 6th, which is followed by a 471 yard par four.
The clubhouse amenities include a pro shop and snack bar, opening at 7am and serving breakfast lunch and dinner items. Practice facilities include a targeted grass driving range and a short game area with sand bunker.
