Fun even with the weather

I picked a terrible weather day to play but the course was in surprisingly good condition considering the past rains and cold weather. Very friendly accommodating staff. Would recommend if you are in the Columbus area.

Quality course

The course was in good shape. Greens were running quick but true. The head pro is a super nice guy, very accommodating. Would play again.

Elm lake GC

Straight forward, easy course. Fairways were decent; some greens need grass work. Not much fringe but solid grounds keep.

Disappointed For The Last Time

Played this course many times over last 8 years. First couple rounds were great. Went one time around 2011 and no one said they had temporary greens. Paid full price, was disappointed. Went back year later after $300k investment "fixing greens" and they had temporary greens again. Left and didn't play that day. Tried to give them a chance again today and know what was out there? Weeds in fairway, bare tee boxes with tee markers facing hazards, weeds all over greens, smaller greens, uncut green, no fresh cut cups, greens where mowers missed cutting strips, dead greens, sand traps in middle of greens where greens have died, leaning pins, and worn out practice green free for all! Last time I played Elm Lake in my lifetime.

First time playing course

I played the course after a heavy rain week so the course was wet but the greens looked really good. I will definitely be going back to play this course in the near future. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone.
