"Despite the nice course, our group will not be going back to Shaker Run."
"We were a foursome, and the group in front of us by two holes was a twosome."
"The staff was courteous and the course that was open was well taken care of."

Should have listened to those who warned me about this place. What a shame, Shaker Run is. They have everything going in their favor: the beautiful scenery, 27 holes shaped around natural wooded areas and a small lake. Should be golf tranquility at its best. Too bad they give zero cares about their course or golfers spending money to play their course. Embarrassment is the best word I can think of to describe how Shaker Run should feel about the maintenance of their course. Sure, they cut their grass on a seemingly regular schedule to keep it in proper golf course shape but that's about where the maintenance program starts and ends. The bunkers on this course are horrific. They look like they were washed out 3 years ago and haven't been touched since. The green side bunker on the Par 5 #1 hole of Meadows was being overtaken by weeds. It was unreal that anyone who operates a course or who's job it is to maintain a course could ever allow this to happen. It's just pure lazy and tells me, the golfer, that they do not care about their course. And that's the rap I've heard from multiple people, that Shaker Run could be a great place but it's horribly ran and maintained. I wish I could rate the bar/restaurant service and Chef separately because they would get 5 stars. Great service inside. Unlike outside, where our group (playing in a scramble with only 3 other groups) were told we could not access our cart until 1pm on the dot. So we had to walk our clubs from the car, all the way to the range, and back again. Not short walks. What really rubbed me wrong was not so much the weird policy to not let us use our carts for this, but the power trip this guy seemed to enjoy being on in making sure we were aware that he has all the keys and we cannot have one until our 1pm start. Was just an overall stupid policy with 4 groups going out and no one else on the course. We're grown men in our 30's, where did he think we were going to go? I'd never ever pay a greens fee to go back to this neglected dump again.

Just played this course on one of the best Sunday's your going to get in late October. The course was in really good condition. They had some of the best greens that I've played in the area (better than Pipestone, Moss Creek, etc.). There were lots of leaves on the greens which was quite annoying trying to use a towel to clear out a path to putt, a small leaf blower in the morning would have done the trick. Another let down, like with another review, was the quality of service at the bar. To get one drink and a hot dog took for ever. I don't know what she was doing that I had to wait so long, she kept dropping things and didn't even acknowledge me for five to ten minutes. The prices were decent. At the turn there were two bartenders and the same situation happened. Just seriously lousy bartenders. They don't seem to have any training with this but overall, minus the bar service, the course was fun to play. Great views and quality fairways and greens.

I am not sure what course Robert played, but I can't imagine it was the Shaker Run that I played yesterday. The course is in fantastic shape. The greens need another week or so to heal to be perfect. They were recently aerified it looked like. The bunkers could use a little work, but they were definitely playable. They put new hole signs on the course I noticed which were much needed. No visible markers? What do you want, and giant pole sticking out at the 150 marker? They have markers on both sides of the fairway at that course every 25 yards, plus on many sprinkler heads. I say keep the tacky striped barber shop pole for the goat tracks. The course is in great shape right now, and they are making improvements it appears. A new tree was also added back in #4's fairways, where one of the older owners got rid of it. The new owners have a huge vested interest in this place for it to succeed, and you can see the money going back in the course for sure. If they go thru with some of their plans that I have heard about, this course will easily be one of the best in the state again.

Course was not in the best condition, service was terrible. Went to get a drink and hot dog at the turn and sat there for over ten minutes waiting for some to help us. 5 people were behind the bar. One lady was helping another customer and I guess was new because she looked lost. One lady kept cleaning the same spot on the bar. One lady kept walking in and out and one lady was just standing at the register. When they finally asked us if we needed anything, she seemed annoyed that we were bothering her. Terrible customer service. No water on the course and the bunkers were in horrible condition. Too many other options out there with better customer service and better course conditions. For $50 on a weekend you should expect and get more.

The course is always nice, one of my favorite courses. Unfortunately the management of the course leaves something to be desired. Don't book an early tee time because the course never opens on time so you won't get off on time and you will be backed up all day. They also constantly overbook the course which just adds to the problem. Don't plan on playing a fast round

Played a tournament here the past weekend and I have to say this course was so rude. We played two six hour rounds because the management couldn't say no to people who wanted to play that day, so they decided to squeeze these groups of people in between our groups during the turn. I waited 45 #$#%ing minutes on the ten tee. Horrible! There are 27 holes of golf here at this place why couldn't you put them on the side we weren't playing.

We played last Sunday and I should have listened to the reviews I read. The only positive thing I can say is that the course has some nice views. What it doesn't have are decent greens, none of the grass around the greens have been mowed, the traps are growing weeds and are dirt. There are no visible markers for distance and they said we got a deal at $50, the regular price is $65. We played on a beautiful Sunday and there was no one on the course. I now know why. Golfer beware.

Spent quite a few rounds there in earlier days when it was a great course. Wish I could say it was the same now. The staff was courteous and the course that was open was well taken care of. With that being said, the course has a way to go to be at it's former glory. It started as I went to the pro shop to grab some tees and divot tool before my round to find the pro shop was empty. What kind of pro shop doesn't have tees and divot tools? This one I guess. While on the course I found that the holes have changed from previously and GPS was completely unusable. Thats all fine, I understand the old place ended up in disarray so its been an uphill battle getting things squared away although, we found that holes had pcs of paper taped to old hole signs to guide you through the course. We had to call the club house when we came to a juction of 3 holes and we couldn't find the pc of paper that was placed on the sign because it was a windy day. I'm sure I'll go back again but, I'll wait a season to let these things get fixed.
