Excellent weather

Great game with my brother.

We teed off in the early afternoon and walked the course - I believe we were the only walkers then, and we soon let two groups (of two) play through before asking a single to join us. The pace then was great and we loved our game. The course was in very good shape and there was a great variety of holes on both nines. We loved the course and feel bad for those who have been playing it frequently - as they will not be able to for much longer.

Price good for deal

Got a golf now special as a single. For the discounted rate, it was fine. If I had to pay the full amount, I would be thoroughly upset. Course was poorly maintained. Greens were hit and miss with spots of yellow. Tee boxes had tees and garbage everywhere. Never saw a marshal or cart girl on a Saturday at 1 pm. Definitely not worth full price rate.

WHAT A SHAME!!!

What a shame it is that this coarse will be closing!!! I just got to play it for the first time and now I want to kick my own butt for not playing it more earlier! The Pro Shop told me they must close because the county is selling the property. I took my friend (who's played here before) with me and he hadn't been out in a long time. He was so thankful for taking him there because he and his best friend (also a good friend of mine) use to play here twice a week. Since our friend passed he hadn't played there again. He told me he so glad to be back out here and that it was just what he needed. I can see why! The coarse is beautiful and so is the scenery! I will play it as much as I can for the rest of the year. WHAT A SHAME IT'S CLOSING!!!

Fun At Elk Run

I've played at Elk Run numerous times and have enjoyed every time. The course is always in very good shape, compare that with the greens fee and it is one of the best bargains around.

Farewell

I love Elk Run and have enjoyed playing it over the years. But I hear it will close in October. Too bad, the region will miss this little gem.

Nice layout, fairways are dry and hard in many spots

The course is drying out and it appears with the course planning to close at the end of the season they are opting not to put much money into the course. Many fairways were dry and hard.

Interesting design with many different looks.

This is a challenging course with many different looks and lies due to the undulations. Distances can be deceiving to the eye so yardage markers are truly important. I usually prefer to walk when I play but this course all but demands a motor cart, especially when reaching the hills leading up to 17 and 18...
