Course Review and Comments

Last time I played this course, it was beautiful and very well maintained. I LOVED this course, the people, so many great memories lost. I haven't played the course since the City of Mentor took over but prior to that, the course was run by golf pro Jack Austin for over 30 years and prior to that, Jack's father, John Austin, managed the course. The course was always in pristine shape with the expertise of Mark Floyd, John S., and prior to them, a gentleman by the name of Marvin. If Mark Floyd is still the Superintendent, then this course will be in the best shape possible. So much history, so many stories... It's a shame that none of these guys were ever remembered or honored for their years of service to this golf course. If you have any great stories or memories to share during Jack or John Austin's tenure, please find and join the group Blackbrook Country Club on Facebook. Many Blackbrook legends may have passed, but I know many of you are still out there. I am talking to the Saturday morning skin game players, the couples league, the old-timers that are still with us, the junior league, Keith, Kevin, where are you guys? And why doesn't this course have stellar reviews anymore??? What happened???
