It is truly unfortunate that the game of golf as I knew it back in the 1970's no longer exists. Somewhere along the line, golf went from a pleasant walk in the park on a Saturday to a US Open horror show. Case in point--Big Met. For all the money spent on their new clubhouse and cart barn, you'd think they'd save a few dollars for a lawn mower. You would be incorrect in your assumption. Fairways range from the miniscule at eleven yards, to the expansive (I'm being sarcastic here)twenty to twenty-two yards wide. When mentioned to the starter after the round, he saw nothing wrong with that. "We need to toughen up the course" was his reply. (The course plays at 6,000 yards from the white tees.) My response would be, "are the pros coming to town?" But why waste my breath? The first thing is to recognize the problem, but if you see nothing wrong with an eleven yard wide fairway, then you've got bigger problems in your life to concern yourself with. Quite pitiful, but it is happening on just about every course I play. The sad thing is, the majority of golfers have been brainwashed into thinking golf should be a torturous affair, and not a relaxing exercise.In the twenty first century golfing universe, making a birdie is a felony that needs to be punished. Heaven help you if the average golfer breaks eighty once in a blue moon. Narrow the fairways! Plant more trees! Get the greens to 13 on the stimpmeter. And so it goes. In closing, Big Met is a nice course if you like twenty first century golfing conditions. Narrow fairways, continual planting of more trees, "naturalized areas" with 15" high weeds and junk they were too lazy to cut, inconsistent green speeds and conditions. All the train wrecks of modern golf. For you young folks under the age of thirty, believe it or not, fairways used to be forty to fifty yards wide and rough was less than two inches. But that no longer is the case, and it is a shame. Golf used to be fun, but no more.

Customer Service

Annoying. They want your full name when you buy your greens fees. Who knows why?

Big Met is a great place to play golf. The course is well maintained. Greens fees are reasonable and it's a course you can walk.

I like the changes they made to the 2 par 5's on the front nine. It made the course a bit more challenging.

One of the things I really like about Big Met is there are no houses around. You are truly away from the outside world, even though it is in the middle of the city.

Inspite of its lack of length, Big Met provides a classic test of golf for all players.

Well known as the most played course in the state, Big Met is part of the Emarald Nacklace known as the Metroparks. If you don't mind slow play, and sporadic green conditions it is worth the walk.

Customer Service

Really, a bunch of old cranks.

Big Met is not a great course, usually not in worst of shape, greens sometimes in poor condition and is often plagued with drunk beginners sporting long mullets. s

Customer Service
