Greens are in terrible shape!

I have played this course a few times this year and don't know what happened to the greens, They were recovering from being aerated but they were in terrible shape. Looks like they have a fungus. The green fees should have been lowered and they should have told us about the problem.

Beware of Aerated Greens

I wasn’t told about the greens being aerated until we arrived and paid.

Worst greens I've played all year.

I felt compelled to share how bad these greens are. Appears they were punched late in the season but I am no greens specialist. They are very soft and the ball plugs leaving a bumpy surface that is nearly unputtable. Just a heads up.

Greens aren't worth it

Fairways were awesome and the tee boxes pretty well kept, but the greens were the worst I've ever seen. No bunker upkeep, dead and dying greens. Dead spots everywhere. For the money and Chateau elan prestige it wasn't worth it.

Greens are currently in terrible condition. Even when you consider the aerating process it’s worse than other courses I’ve played normally this is a decent 4 star course but it was overpriced today and the greens really awful

Horrible Greens

The course was actually in good shape except for the greens, probably some of the worst I have played on in years. They were recently aerated but they were so much worse. I was playing as part of an annual tournament and was excited to play this course but was very disappointed with the greens. There were also people in front of us hitting 3-4 balls all the time. It was only a twosome and our foursome was always waiting on them. There were no marshals on the course and the wait times were frustrating. You would have thought for the money that it would have been a better experience.

Disappointed

$47. Pace of play could have been better but a resort course with residents and others mixed in.
Greens were awful. Many of them are on verge of being lost. So many deep unrepaired ball marks and spotty conditions made putting a joke. Speeds inconsistent at best.
Fairways in pretty decent shape mostly good lies in fairway.
Tee boxes decent not great.
Off fairway was bad. Not much upkeep in rough areas...many times unplayable.
Clearly not putting money back into the course. Gonna catch up with them sooner or later.
If you're staying at resort and have time and transportation many public and semi private in area that are far superior

Poor in several areas.

The greens are in horrible shape. Seems as if no ball marks are repaired and issues with the grass. Championship tee boxes were in fair to poor shape.
Have a sign on door saying they are not responsible if you contract COVID there. Then tell you to have a cart where you can social distance it’s 35$ Extra. For the cart! Which I did. This is with that area being some of the hottest in contracting the virus. They obviously don’t care.

Expected better

For the price of the round, I expected, if not a world-class experience, then at least a more memorable one. The facilities were fabulous and the staff were very friendly and accommodating; however, course conditions left a good bit to be desired, particularly greens maintenance. Multiple ball marks that had obviously not been addressed for some time left the greens feeling like a municipal course. I would play again, but if the greens were in the same condition I would not visit a third time.
