The Story Behind The Fairways Golf Membership

In 2009, The Fairways Golf Membership was offered for the first time at Mallard Creek Golf Club. We launched this membership for a few reasons. First, we wanted to create something that was unbeatable in value for golfers of all types. Secondly, we felt it was time to do something proactive to grow the game in a meaningful way. Lastly, we felt it was important for us to be accountable rather than relying on third-party marketers and tee-time providers.

It was around the same time that many of these third-party marketers and tee-time providers began to gain a strong grasp in the industry. As a result, courses lowered their prices, sold fewer rounds and money was funneled away from facilities to large companies with little skin in the game. This ripple effect undercut the ability for many courses to be successful.

It is those ideals that led us to creating The Fairways Golf Membership. In doing so, golf once again became accessible to golfers without the necessity of convenience, booking fees and other nonsense. Even better, we were able to be held accountable for all aspects of our membership in that important dollars were not being sent elsewhere, but rather back into the course, clubhouse and more.

Today, The Fairways Golf Membership has grown from a one course offering to include Mallard Creek, Coppertop at Cherokee Hills, Pine Brook and Briarwood. This membership allows golfers of all kinds, from the scratch player to the occasional hacker, to enjoy the game the way it was meant to be. Not only has this membership made golf more accessible, but it has improved overall stability.

We are proud to have created this membership benefitting you, the golfer, while also ensuring stability in quality, service, play and our local economies.

We have created something truly special and unlike anything else in the country. We believe in growing this great game by making it affordable, accessible and fun for everyone. This membership has made a difference in a number of our members’ lives for a bevy of reasons. Just take a look at what our current Fairways Golf Members have to say.

We have created Ohio’s #1 Public Golf Membership and we will continue to grow its offerings and benefits for all Fairways Golf Members.

Growing The Game Together

Created by golfers for all golfers of all kinds

Since the game was first invented, its many successes have been idealized and created by those who play. As golfers, we understand what it is, you, the golfer, wants from a membership and how best to make each and every experience you have at any of our courses the absolute best it can be. The Fairways Golf Membership is a simple idea without the ‘red tape’ we see often find in offerings from elsewhere. By creating something accessible and affordable while continually improving our courses, we have grown the game the way it ought to be grown alongside golfers of all types… (Read More)

Don’t Just Take it From us

Since 2009, The Fairways Golf Membership has benefitted a number of golfers. As K. Nelson explains, “They call it “the best value in golf” – and it is. Imagine belonging to a country club with 90 holes, and not having to pay country club fees or having to meet monthly minimums in the clubhouse and restaurant. Then imagine being able to play unlimited golf, being able to book tee times well in advance, and being able to find a place to play a quick nine almost any time you want. Well you don’t need to imagine it.” Click here to see what other Fairways Golf Members are saying
