Fog day at Elkhorn.

The day started very foggy, had no idea where to start. Found my way to the first tee, could not see anything that early in the morning due to fog. Met up with a father and son playing on the second hole. It was by luck that I hooked up with them because they knew the course well. The course is a great place to play it has challenging holes and dog legs that make it fun to play.

Great track

This is a great track and the greens are rolling good. Course is in good shape. New sand in many bunkers is very nice to hit out of. Zipped through the course in three and half hours.

Cool course

The greens were in good condition; better than I expected. Just wished the Marshall was around to help expedite the group ahead of us. Besides that, we had a great time there, it’s challenging with all the trees. We would golf there again.

Really like this course!

The course is a little short, but forces you to shape the ball off the tee on several holes. The greens are in very good shape and except for the ugly gray sand in the bunkers it is a real pleasure to play. It appears that they are replacing this sand with a more user friendly white sand as they had a large amount of sand setting in a maintenance area.

Pace of play

On the 1st tee, it was backed up big time. But once we teed off, there was no waiting or no one waiting on us. Everything went smooth except my score!!! Juanio

Mud bunkers are awful

Greens are chewed up, divots rarely fixed, bunkers are filled with dirt, if you play late they pull the flags so you can't see the hole

Pace management

If they are going to let a group of 5 players then there needs to be a marshal making sure that group is playing at a reasonable pace or letting groups play through

Mother’s Day round at Elk Horn

Love this course and usually it’s in perfect condition however the putting surfaces need help no Divet repair all marks are dead or dying. They typically are flawless. While we were there playing as I have approximately 65 times in recent years. There was a Very aggressive unfriendly very demeaning Marshall. I completely know and understand the rules of this course and every other course that I play as I am an avid golfer. While in play the Marshall drove a crossed greens and serfaces where he shouldn’t just to argue with me because he believed I drove in an incorrect area which I did not. I took it with a grain of salt apologized and tried to move forward this idiot wanted to get into a physical altercation with me and my group. Never have I ever met anyone like this on a golf course. However this is the same jerk That I met two years ago during the Junior PGA program while we were told to follow the coaches this individual chased me and my wife down to yell and argue in front of all of the kids. Again he was very aggressive and wanted a physical altercation. Even the coach told him he was wrong he told Phil to shove it. I have spent a boatload of money at this establishment and will play elsewhere on the weekends when this guy works. I do love this course I do Like the rest of the staff and Greg is an amazing guy.

Course in excellent condition, especially the greens

The course is relatively narrow and the course is in excellent condition. The greens were awesome, true and quick. Some of the holes have some hidden water hazards, if you have not played before. We played in a little over 4 hours and had lunch at the clubhouse. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. I played on a hot deal $29. Great value for a tough course in great condition.
