I agree, the negative review is ridiculous. If you play any course at a prime time (or in the evening when there is a league), you will have to wait on some holes...last time I checked, golf is better than a thing I like to call WORK...enjoy it!!!
Very nice course, great greens, kind, courteous staff. No driving range (not that it matters to me, I generally won't hit any balls prior to a round anyway...but some may not like this).
Tee boxes are not level...but I haven't played many courses where they are 100% level.
I have played many courses in NE Ohio, this is probably in the top 10 for me. I really enjoyed this course and will undoubtedly return.

The old Sugar Bush has the best fairways outside of the PGA course's. The layout is is a mix bag of club choice. The greens are very fast. Its one of the best old course's left in northern Ohio.

Don't worry about the below reveiw, obviously when some people can't beat the course it gets to them. I played here for the first time in quite a few years and was still impressed with the course. Seeing a crowded 1st tee is a good thing for golf, it costs a lot of money to operate a course, the more golfers that play the course, the better it can be maintained, and sugar bush was not short on golfers, if you can keep pace, this is not a problem. The yardage on the card is somewhat off, but it was even admitted to me by the starter prior to playing, the par 3 yardage actually read quite true, otherwise, so what if the yardage is of a yard or 3 on the longer holes, off of the tee you are going to hit the same club, the one that will put you closer to the hole, the starter also noted that the 150 markers were only vauge and if you pay a little bit of attention you will note that there are true yardage markers placed frequently down the middle of the fairway, where id DOES matter that the yardage is as accurate as possible. Furthermore, not being able to see the ball land off of the tee is a part of a little thing I like to call GOLF, if you do not seek a challenge, maybe you should play at Cranberry, or maybe just don't golf at all. See, I have this little trick when I play golf, I tend to watch the ball after I hit it, that way even if I don't see it land, I know what direction to start walking in, and 9.9 times out of 10, I find the ball. I will give the reveiwer one thing, the tee boxes were slightly sloped, but only in one or 2 instances did it really affect anything, I have seen and played tee boxes that would make me wish for the worst tee box at Sugarbush. And one more thing, to find the next hole, follow the cart path, and if you cant figure THAT out, look at the handy little course map on the back side of your scorecard. Sorry, I know this isn't really reveiwlike, but the comment stating that this was a terrible course was just plain wrong. Onto my reveiw, the starter was curteous and very helpful to make the round start comfortably. The grounds were kept quite well, and the greens seemed to be a lot more puttable than they used to be. The elevated greens and tee boxes made for an exiting and challenging round of golf. The only slight downslide was the price, 35 walking isn't really all that bad for 18 walking but a few courses of almost the same caliber can be played for slightly cheaper, but I will give them another 35 dollars nonetheless.

One of the worst courses I have ever played. Extremely crowded back 9, NO SIGNS TELLING YOU WHERE THE NEXT TEE IS, yardage on card and at the tee never are the same and both are usually wrong. Poorly designed course where you can't see where the ball lands off most tees. Tee boxes are rarely flat and most times have more slope than the fairways. A TERRIBLE EXCUSE FOR A COURSE.
Will never play here again.

Great Value

Cant beat the value. Offers a very good challenge yet provides good playability to the average golfer. Greens tended to be a bit long (probably because of the heat). The tee boxes were the least well maintain part of the course.
