Elliott, dont play here

Lots of roped off wet areas, sand traps are more like pea gravel and the rough is so tall and thin if you hit into you cant find your ball.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. With the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recover the fairways and greens from the water on the course. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing Elliot Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

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.

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.

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,

Rip-Off

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.
