The grass was too long near the greens. Ball got buried in the grass so often and really were not that far off line. Impossible to get a good chip

Huge disappointment

Course is in horrible shape, rough is overgrown, fairways are burnt and grassless.
pace of play was almost 5 hours and as usual no one has any golf etiquette to let faster players play through, I'm very disappointed because it used to be a fun course to play .

Slow pace

The course was over booked and there was a golf league playing that I wasn’t warned about. The round was going so slow I attempted to get a rain check for 9 holes but was told to play. After the turn I played more two holes before quitting because so long.

Elbel Course

This is very nice course and they have some excellent greens that run fast! Nice layout. Only downside is Tuesday mornings they have a women's league and the pace was extremely slow 2 hours 20 minutes for front 9 and 1.5 hours for back nine...

Challenging & fun

The course is in great shape. Tee box & fairways are well groomed. Greens are challenging in a good way. Get off the fairway into the tall grass & you have a new challenge. Will play there more this summer. More than enough goose poop in some areas, but hey that’s nature!

Fun course

busy course, started off following a 5some but they split up but being a 2some was a bit slow. Course is in great shape, greens are the best I've seen for this course, love playing here but always have bad luck of following slower players that won't let you play through. There's a lot of geese here as well so always dodging goose poo but otherwise an enjoyable experience

Great shape , tee boxes rather hard?

Fairways & Greens in great shape, roughs tough to get out of ( suppose to be in fairways), but teeboxes rather hard. Enjoyed the day!
