What’s New at Mallard Creek in 2017
As we begin our 25th season here at Mallard Creek Golf Club, we have plenty of new happenings taking place. From improved course maintenance to special offers, top-of-the-line equipment to new events, there is a little something for every golfer to enjoy this season here at ‘The Duck’.
Improved Tee Boxes and Fairways
Last season, we began testing a sand/seed mixture to be applied topically to our tee boxes. Even with the excessive heat and little precipitation, we liked the results we saw in 2016. For 2017, we will not only increase the frequency that we apply this to the tee boxes, but will also begin applying it to our fairways. With a majority of the ground in Northeast Ohio being mostly composed of clay, this periodic application allows for the soil composition to include more sand. This allows for softer surfaces, improved turf recovery times and most importantly, even better overall conditions.
All New Cobra and Puma Merchandise
We are excited to have all new King Cobra clubs and Puma apparel this season.
Cobra’s 2017 line is perhaps their best ever, and you can now find it here at Mallard Creek. Even better, we will have demos available for you to try out these new clubs before you decide to purchase.
Our Puma apparel is some of the best on the market today. Whether you are looking for something to stay warm during cooler rounds or a lightweight material to keep cool on those hot summer days, we have just what you need!
King Cobra F7+ Driver
Cobra teamed up with Arccos to bring the industry’s first built-in GPS tracking device in a driver. Pretty cool, right?
But there’s even more to the King Cobra F7+:
The KING F7+ Driver features a smaller profile at address. Also, it is equipped with 3 Center of Gravity settings for maximum distance and lower lofts for better players. If you’re looking for a driver that performs to the highest of standards, look no further than the King Cobra F7+!
King Cobra F7 Driver
The KING F7 Driver also features Arccos technology within the club. This helps all golfers gain a better understanding of their driver performance. Knowing this information allows you to pinpoint what parts of your driver game need work as well as exactly how far you should expect to be hitting it on the course. The King F7 is equipped with 3 Center of Gravity settings for maximum distance.

Increased Verticuts and More
For the 2017 season, we have laid out a plan to verticut our greens more than we have in years past. Verticutting, or vertical mowing, removes thatch buildup in the lawn so turf can breathe easy, better absorb nutrients, and soak in much-needed moisture. This means smoother and better rolling greens that break true. It also means healthier greens that maintain moisture and nutrient levels to ensure that all of our greens are as healthy as ever.
Also, we replaced the bridge on #23 in 2016 and will continue replacing and improving our bridges throughout 2017. Add in that we will be improving our cart paths, and your ride around The Duck will be even smoother.
Lastly, in 2016, we began trimming our trees to allow for better views on the course and it has been great. In 2017, we will complete phase 2 of 3 and nearly all of the trees on the course will be perfectly trimmed.
The Unlimited Range Pass – Now Available
In 2009, we were the first to offer Unlimited Golf in Cleveland. In 2014, we expanded Unlimited Golf to 4 courses and created The Fairways Golf Membership.
Now, in 2017, we are bringing Unlimited Range Balls to Cleveland!
The Unlimited Range Pass at Mallard Creek is the most affordable and valuable way to practice all-year long. Simply pay your one-time range pass fee and you will have access to unlimited range balls at Mallard Creek. You are welcome to use these range balls on both the driving range and our practice greens.
The unlimited range pass is good any day of the week and can be used as long as the range is currently open.

The Fairways Cup
Want to test your golf abilities against an entire league and win cash prizes? We have made that possible!
The Fairways Cup is kicking off its inaugural season in 2017 and we want you to be a part of it. League play will alternate between Mallard Creek Golf Club and Pine Brook Golf Links each week, so you will enjoy playing a variety of holes and layouts. The league is formatted as an individual ‘FedEx Cup’ style setup up. Tee times start at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights. League play will begin on April 26th, 2017 and go until September 14th, 2017.
League fees are just $100 per person. Fees will go towards cash payouts, food and beverages for the included cookouts, prizes, handicap tracking and general management of the league. After the league signup fee is paid you just pay greens fees each week.
Each player will golf 9 holes each week using stroke play scoring. Players will be going head-to-head against the entire league instead of having a different opponent each week. Players will earn points based on the position they finish for the week. For example, if you finish with the lowest net score on a certain week, you will be the first-place finisher and receive the highest possible points for that week. On the other hand, if you finish with the highest net score on a certain week, you will be the last-place finisher and will receive the lowest possible points for that week. Your total points will be added up throughout the season. The ultimate goal is to have the most total points at the end of the season. Below you can find a scoring example:
