Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to see that your overall experience was anything short of 5 stars, but we hope you'll give us another try in the near future.
Course was a wreck.
Lots of rain previous to my round. The fairways were soaked and full of debris. The course should've been closed. Staff frustrated that I used GolfNow to book my round. Rockford Park District is hurting for customers but doesn't believe in customer service. One can play nicer courses for cheaper and be treated better by just driving a few minutes in any direction. Perhaps when they start closing courses they'll wish they made better decisions and treated their customers with some respect.
Thank you for reviewing us. We see you rated the course 3-stars and are interested in learning what we can do to improve before your next round. Feel free to comment on this review or reach out to the team in the golf shop. We always appreciate the feedback. Thank you for playing Elliot Golf Course, and we hope to see you again soon.
Course has nice layout
Good bang for your buck. Has some challenging holes, but fun course no matter your handicap. Rough was long due to the rain the last few weeks. I would recommend this course to all golfers.
Elliot is in Great Shape This Year!
Elliot is Looking Good and Playing Great this year! I will definitely play it again!
Love Elliot gc. Keep this one. Sell Aldeen.. 50$ to play any course in Rockford on a weekend or any time is asinine..
To bad it will be gone soon
Nice course for average player and it's to bad Rockford is going to shut this course down soon. Maybe they should stop putting all the money into Aldeen since we didn't need a 200k bathroom between hole 15 and 16!!
Rocks in sandtraps
Still rocks in traps. Greens were very nice albeit a little slow
Elicit golf course
I feel the golf course is a very nice layout gives you opportunities to hit all your clubs and seems to be run very nice and the reads are in very good shape and a good value for the money
To many groups walking just two.
Slow five hour round three groups waiting on some tee boxes.
Course is terrible shape with rough so high you can't find a ball that is a foot of the fairway! Greens are all nicked up and even have cuts in them from them cutting it to low leaving huge tears in them. I know Elloit is not a upscale course in town but it;s really lacking compared to Ingersol or Sandy Hollow,
As a tax payer in Rockford a chunk of my tax dollars fund the park district. I get no discount for paying this through out the year then they charge $35 a round and another $18 for a cart. CRAZY! Half the people have carts the other half don't creating traffic jams.The coarse is a $25 - $30 coarse with a cart TOPS! It's nice for a community coarse but A LOT of better options in the area for the same price. This coarse will go vacant or sold in a couple years guaranteed. Rip-Off! Drop the price, give carts with all tee-times and give residents a discount and I will come back.
This course needs some serious work
I play Elliot on a fairly regular basis, and have played it since it opened almost 50 years ago. This year course maintenance has gone downhill. There are dandelions on the tees, water in the "sand" traps and overgrown areas that need to be mowed. The traps have water and a lot of rocks in them. We play no bunkers due to their condition. The good things: friendly staff, good club house, electric carts(big PLUS), great large greens and it is close to home (10 minutes).
Fun to play
Had very good conditions all around. Recommend you play this old course. Lots of challenges, as well as fun holes to play.
Park District - HELP!
We played a week ago (5/7/2018) and the course conditions needed desperate help. There are weeds growing in many of the sandtraps along side the large rocks and stones that are just waiting to damage those expensive set of irons you have. It appears the Rockford Park District is letting this course go and not spending to keep it in the excellent shape it was in a few short years ago.
