Frequently Asked Questions – The Fairways Golf Membership

When Can I Use The Fairways Golf Membership?

You can use The Fairways Golf Membership any day, anytime. This includes both weekends and holidays! Also, memberships are good from now through all of 2017. That’s a lot of unlimited golf at the best rate available!

How Much Will I Save With a Fairways Golf Membership?

When you have a Fairways Golf Membership, you will be saving an average of about $30 per 18-hole round. The amount you save will depend on how much you play. If you play 9 rounds, you will more than break even on the cost of your membership. Any golf you play after that simply increases your savings. The Fairways Golf Membership is the only golf offering that saves you more money with each round you play!

When you use your Fairways Golf Membership, your potential savings will allow you to spend your hard-earned dollars on other parts of your game or really, anything else you may want.

With The Fairways Golf Membership, your dollar will go further than ever before!

Why a Fairways Golf Membership?

We understand that when it comes to saving money on your golf, there are a lot of options to choose from. Whether it is a coupon book, other membership, loyalty program or something else, there are certainly a lot of choices for you to pick from. However, The Fairways Golf Membership is better and more convenient than these in a number of ways.

For example, although a coupon book may have a lot to choose from, many of these ‘deals’ are often unusable due to time/date restrictions. For example, you often won’t be able to use a coupon on the weekend or until after 1 p.m. on a weekday. This gets frustrating and does not make golfing within your own schedule easy and convenient.

When it comes to other memberships, there is nothing quite like The Fairways Golf Membership. With 4 courses to choose from making up 90-holes of pristine golf (Mallard Creek has 36-holes), you will always have multiple options to choose from and the ability to find a spot on the tee. Take into account that there is not one single-course membership at an equal or lower price and The Fairways Golf Membership offers an unbeatable value.

When you join The Fairways Golf Membership, you will find that value, variety, accessibility and quality all come together in a way that is unparalleled anywhere else. 

The Fairways Golf Membership has been Ohio’s #1 Golf Membership since 2009 – and for good reason!

What Other Costs Are Associated with the Membership?

The Fairways Golf Membership costs a one-time fee of $249. After that, there are no convenience fees, monthly minimums, dues or any other hidden costs. It’s simple, you just pay for your membership cost and your golf cart usage ($7 per 9-holes) throughout the season and watch the savings add up.

How Can I Save on Cart Fees?

Although our cart fees are nominal, we do still have a way for you to save even more money on your cart fees throughout the season. Currently, cart cards are available and allow you to save more than 25% off of each round you play as a member. This is a great way to bring your cost of golf down on top of your membership! Cart cards are a limited-time offer as quantities are limited. Only 250 of each variety will be sold before the start of the 2017 season.

Are All of the Courses Open Year-Round?

Mallard Creek, Coppertop at Cherokee Hills and Briarwood are open year round and allow play as long as weather permits. Pine Brook is typically open as soon as the weather breaks each Spring and closes late in the Fall. Of course, if the weather is good enough and the demand is there, we would be happy to keep Pine Brook open year-round as well.

How Many Memberships Are Available?

Only a limited number of memberships are available each season. With a savings this big and the need for each facility to run efficiently for the benefit of your golfing experiences, we do cap the membership. In fact, since The Fairways Golf Membership launched in 2009, it has sold out each season before good weather rolls around.

Are Memberships Available During the Season?

With only a limited number of membership spots available, we cannot guarantee any memberships being available during the regular playing season. If you are interested in joining The Fairways Golf Membership, it is best to do so sooner rather than later. You certainly don’t want to be the player in your group spending an extra $30 or so each time you play because you did not take advantage when you had the opportunity.


Can I Use My Membership for Leagues or Outings?

The only time when memberships are not valid for use is during leagues and outings. This is due to the fact that leagues and outings book standing tee-times throughout the season much further in advance than others have the ability to book them. Although, many of our current league and outing players do have the membership as they can use it for 9-holes before or after their event and any other time. If you play in a league at a Fairways Partner Course, the membership is still a great way to get the most out of your season.

What Are the Courses Like?

Each course within The Fairways Golf Membership makes for an incredible variety. From Mallard Creek’s sprawling layout where you can grip it and rip it to Pine Brook’s need for precise shot making, there is something for every type of golfer. For a full, detailed overview of each course, check out our ‘Fairways Family of Courses’ page.

Although variety is big part of what makes The Fairways Golf Membership so great, it is perhaps the things that are the same at all of our courses that make it special. For one, when you visit a Fairways Partner Course, you will enjoy the absolute best in customer service from all staff members. Whether you are in the pro shop paying for your round or on the course talking to a maintenance worker, you will feel appreciated and valued. Also, all of our members take pride in being a part of this membership and enjoy the ability to interact with other members. When it comes to The Fairways Golf Membership, the people truly are one of its best assets.
