very nice, wooded, municipal course

Course is a parkland type, wooded several doglegs and with some elevation changes. Fairways were completely leaf free...some leaves accumulated in the roughs. greens still a little less than perfect after weeks old aeration but still very playable. One of South Bends excellent municipal courses.

Good course

This was a nice course for the money. Distance is good greens are nice and some challenging par 3's. Only flaw of the round was a group ahead of me not letting me play thru and then on 10 they were in the clubhouse when I went by and cut in front of me on 10 tee. The ranger sat there and watched without saying a word. All in all a good round.

Old friends day out

Beautiful day and nice pace to play with our 85 year old friend. He hasn’t played in awhile so it was nice to have a leisurely pace and friendly staff in the clubhouse when we took a short break. Course is always beautiful and lots of nature around.

Beautiful Course

One of the prettiest courses in the area. Plenty of wildlife to see. Layout of the course is excellent. Only downside is the greens were a little chewed up from lack of ball mark repair.

First Time Playing

Good Conditions, Great Price

First time playing this and I was impressed. First off, I played as a single, which sometimes courses don’t like. Not here. The staff greeted me, wished me luck, and told me to play thru the 4 some ahead. I really appreciated that.

The course itself was in really good condition especially considering the weather in this area. I felt the greens were a little slow, but they rolled true. I did play later in the day too, so that may have affected pace. Other than that I was impressed. Usually at municipals you see grass clippings, and I didn’t see any here.

The course setup I liked. It’s a course that requires precise drives rather than length. The greens aren’t overly protected by bunkers or undulation, but they also are not very big. If you hit the tee balls in the right spots you can score, but again, got to be precise off the tee. I liked that the par 5’s were risk reward, as they were all doglegs. The par 3’s were long, as evidenced by 12 playing close to 230 from the tips - maybe the longest par 3 I’ve ever played.

All in all this is a good course and really well priced. I will be back!

Fairways and greens were wonderful and rewarded you for using them. Rolling hills and full vegetation were a great setting. Will play here again. Worth the 30 min drive from Stevensville MI.

I mostly play in LaPorte. We play Elbel once or twice a year and always enjoy it. Course is challenging but not impossible. New carts, great clubhouse, always a great time.

Elbel round of golf for 1 hole!

Got 1 hole in before it started to rain hard. I waited for 20-30 minutes for it to stop raining, but it kept coming down. I left the course and headed home. I did golf the day before there, the course was in good shape.

Great!

Upon arriving staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The course was in great shape. When my friend and I finished the front 9 earlier then expected the staff was very accommodating to us since there was league play beginning to tee off the back 9. Thanks to all!
