We called and booked over the phone for $30 for 18 and riding. When we arrived it was magically $39 a person somehow with no explanation. Started on holes 19-27 since it was backed up. Tee-box mower kept following us hole to hole and kept it running waiting for us to tee off til we finally gave him a look to leave. Tee box needed watering and a few need some serious leaf blowing. The greens were awesome though. All in all it was ok, not a great experience but I would consider it once more for the right price.

We have played here several times this year and all three 9's are nice. This day we played the weather was beautiful and the course was wide open. We never had anyone in front or back of us. The greens were in nice shape except for the irresponsible golfers that don't fix ball marks. We always fix our own plus others.

We booked a tee time on here only to show up when they had an outing. They originally told us that they wouldn't be able to get us out at all for our booked tee time and that it was the computer and golfnow fault for the scheduling mix up (even tho they control the tee times posted and can view them to make sure it is correct). They ended up getting us out for 9 on their short and less maintained last 9 holes. He tried to charge us a deal of $20 for the 9, even tho our original 18 hole tee time was for $30. He later changed it to $15 after we negotiated with him about our frustration. He also told us that if there was room to make the turn on the other nines when we made the turn, we could. When we made the turn it was open so the starter put us off the back nine. We did not delay the outing at all with this and on the 11th tee box, the man we talked to before the round was checking on the outing and saw us in the back nine. He came up and told us that he only charged us for 9 holes and that if we wanted to keep playing we would have to come back in and pay for another 9 but he wouldn't be able to get us back out for another hour or two. Needless to say we left and I can promise to never return to this course. It was the absolute worst customer service I've had anywhere. They made a mistake to allow us to book the tee time on golfnow and then blamed golf now and their computer system for their mistake. And they didn't even try to make it right to us! DO NOT GO TO THIS COURSE!

I was one of only two people on the entire course due to weather conditions. I was extremely happy with my front nine pace of play and course condition. However, that changed at the turn. I was not informed that the back nine was being aerated and that the flags were not out. I played 3 holes and then decided to call it a day. If I had been told when I checked in, I would have merely played the front nine again.

As i approached the putting green, I was rather rudely greeted by one of the staff. I believe his exact words were "Ha, what do you think you are going to do here." They were wrapping up a Sunday AM Outing scramble that was running late as usual. He sure made me feel welcome. To cut it short, I find it difficult to truly enjoy the round when your first impression leaves you so cold. I did make a 1:30 PM tee time on your site, and did not get to start until after 2PM. Then they slipped out a six-some in front of us on the back nine.

The Elms is an underrated golf course - plays much tougher than the scorecard indicates.

Plays 6900 from back tees but pretty open off the tee. The course has one major defense - the greens which are tricky if your not used to them. They are small tilted dime shaped greens for the most part and are surprisingly fast for a public course.

The greens roll true and the course is in excellent shape (though the bunkers need improvement)

Also, no water stations on course which needs to be addressed by owners. In addition, need better scorecards and yardage book. But, overall The Elms has made major strides to become one of the best values in Stark County golf.
