I played shale creek on a Tuesday morning and wasnt very excited. Id heard great things about the course. It cost me $54 with a cart. On arrival the staff were very friendly and polite. I really like both the starters. I started on the back 9 which is fine I said I was more than happy to. The course looked in great shape. I felt good and it was a perfect morning. I teed off and put it down the middle and thought this is gonna be a good day. I really wanted to play well here and had been looking forward to it. NOW THE BAD STUFF! On my approach shot one of the grounds men was behind me driving around dropping blobs of foam. I thought hell shut off his engine when I approach my ball. I took a few practice swings and hes still driving around maybe 40 yards behind me. I hit my shot but he drove around through my whole shot. Very off putting and not what Id expect, especially after the very professional greet you get upon arriving. The next hole a gentlemen let me play through he was very nice. On the 3rd ( 12th ) the same grounds men was laying this foam around the tee area. I hit my shot off to the right ( in play but I was slightly annoyed) I went back to my bag pulled out another ball and looked at him. He pulled to one side and shut off engine like you he should have 2 holes ago. From there the next 6 holes were great. Good pace of play and course was great. Really enjoyed it. I made the turn after 1 hour and I was 1 under par. Now the real fun stuff happened. I came to the club house the starter said you can go right out. I said thank you sir and off I went. The first hole is fairly short. I walked onto the tee and there were 3 older gentlemen infront of me. 1 on fairway and 2 off to the right in the rough looking for balls. They got onto the green finally. I hit my t shot, chipped and 1 put. I got to the next hole ( 2 par 3) they were still on the tee box. I watched them tee off they got in their cart and drove away. I did this for the next 7 holes. I was behind them every single hole watching them tee off. The ignorance and shear rudeness of these people completely stunned me. I got to the tee box pretty much the same time as them every hole. Now I understand not everyone plays quick and being older I dont expect them too, but to say sorry would you like to go through???? I would have been out of their way in less than 1 minute they wouldnt have seen me again. I feel like shake creek has to take some responsibility for the players on the course. They should talk to golfers just before teeing off about etiquette and avoiding slow play. All the starters would have to do is say " please try and avoid slow play, if you are caught by other players and especially if you are a group and get caught by a single, please allow them to play through". I did like the course but my back 9 was completely miserable. I didnt even play 18. I picked up my ball after 17 holes and just drove back to the club house. So 8 holes took 2hrs 30 mins. The front 9 took 1 hour. I would like to play here again as I thought it was a nice looking course but my first experience has really put me off returning.
Beautiful course with fast, complex greens and fairways in nice shape. I think its one of the best in Northeast Ohio. Its "sister" course The Quarry is also fantastic.
Wow! This is such an awesome course. Great course conditions, great lines, and overall difficulty make this course the best in Medina County. Come out and play!

Great course. Fair for all abilities, and in terrific shape. We had an inch of rain the night before, and the greens were fast and dry already!
Love the course but service in the clubhouse bar is some of the worst I have seen. Course should get 5 stars and restaurant should get only one!
Beautiful course. Too bad the people who golf there cant seem to actually golf. I pull 20-50 balls off the neighboring turf once a week.
The staff is great, especially Rob who always go above and beyond. Course is always in excellent shape - any time of the year!
Had a wonderful time at an event hosted here. It was a beautiful place with fantastic staff
