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!!

Lacking

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,

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).

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.

Elliot

The course was in kind of rough shape. I know it is earlier in the year but played ingersol the day before and ingersol was in much better shape than Elliot which is unusual. Overall though Elliot is a fun course and a good value.

First Round of the Year 2018

Course was in pretty good shape for the time of year. First 60° day/weekend, expected it to be a lot busier. Greens and Fairways we're good. Tee Boxes and Traps will need some attention, very early in the season, I expect this will change to the better. Rockford, Illinois has some of the best courses in the state. Elliot is one of them.

Wide open

Got a hot deal. $15. Per person, cart included , 18 holes.

Wide open, forgiving fairways, decent greens.

A little early in season , so grass not quite green yet, still great outing .

Best part of experience was the generous staff. Woman at club house in a.m. and men in p.m. all wonderful people at this course.

I shall return.
