Great course

Course was in good shape with the exception of a few tee boxes. Pace of play was pretty slow due to not having a starter. Definitely a great value and would recommend to anyone.

Great Course - Always in Great Condition

I always like playing Chateau Elan golf courses. They course is always in great condition. Due to being spring, the fairways had recently been aerated, but it did not pose any problems as all courses must aerate in order to keep conditions nice.
The Greens were great (quick, smooth, firm and rolled true). The clubhouse was recently remodeled and now is top notch, just like the courses.
I will definitely be back, especially since you can frequently find great deals on golfnow. The practice facilities are also excellent, and this course is home to one of the Dave Pelz short game schools.

Recently Punched

Some of the fairways have been aerated recently, grass is still dormant, and surprisingly dry. Overall a nice course and enjoyed the day, just wish I would have known this ahead of time.

Unbearable slow pace

Tried to take my dad out for his birthday today for 18 at this place... took us 2.5 hours to get through 9 holes. No ranger anywhere to move people along and no answer from the clubhouse. We were waiting 15-20 min in between shots. Quit after 9...

Always enjoyable course!

We always like to play here! Today the course was unusually wet, especially in the middle fairway. We thought it would have dried out by our tee time, but not so much!

Good Stuff

everything was perfect with the course. Best I have seen it ever, they have remodeled the clubhouse and it is top notch. our cart did die and had to push last 3 holes but they had some tournament going on the Woodland course and probably had to use every cart they owed, Can't wait to go back...…..

Hi Dave, thanks for the great review! We're so sorry to hear your cart died on the last 3 holes - these are not the expectations we strive for a Chateau Elan. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your round despite the trouble and are looking forward to your next round with us. Thanks for playing!

Nice layout, over priced

Not near worth the price tag...staff was great and the layout was fun, but there are definitely nicer courses for cheaper. Greens were mine fields.
