Elks 797 golf

I liked the way the course was maintained, short roughs especially. Only lost one ball and that was in the water on hole # 5.
Excellent course.

You booked a tee time for a closed course:(

Arrived at the course to play and found out it was closed due to an outing. Staff was friendly and the manager informed me Golfnow had been informed a closing. Attempted to cancel for refund. Multiple calls get me to no one and route me back to cancellation on the reservation tab. Hopefully you read this and refund as you should. Otherwise this was a poor experience!

Great day on a great

Been passing this course for years and finally booked a round. Very pleasantly surprised. Very mature golf in excellent condition. The greens were soft enough to receive approach shots but still fast to putt on. The only thing better than the course was the friendly hospitality of the staff. Will definitely play again

Good course... for the money

The value is where it’s at here. 20 with cart is a great deal! Fairways have issues. Lots of bare spots everywhere is unfortunate.. I believe the price brings golfers who don’t care out. Ball marks are not being repaired by other idiot players. Could be a real nice course with a little love!

Worth the price of admission (20.00), but wouldn’t pay more than that.

Could be a great course.

Elks 797 golf club in Wilmington could be a great course. We love the layout of this course., but the upkeep is horrible. Dandelion’s EVERYWHERE. Grass tall and sand traps were bad. Lost so many balls. This could be a great course if it was just taken care of properly. Very sad.

Ok course, not well maintained good for practice and outings

Flat course hard to follow most signs broken and online view of holes is not accurate. You guess your way around the course. Not the worst ever played but will not return.
