First timer

I thought the course was in excellent shape. Some the nicest fairways and greens I've played on. The facilities are in need of a facelift and hope they can preserve this old course.

Great Bang for the Buck Just Outside the City

We had a fabulous time at Elk River GC today. Corey in the clubhouse was incredibly helpful making sure we complied with all COVID restrictions and was altogether very kind. The practice facilities were open and properly socially distanced, which was really nice too.

As for the course, it was really in fantastic shape across the board. Hardly a patch of winter burn to be found, and the rough around the greens came in nicely, which I’ve found rare around the state this year. My only gripe about the layout was that there were a few pin positions that truly felt unfair, as they were cut into a couple side hills. Altogether though, fantastic track.

As a bonus, great pace of play for a public course on the weekend. I think we finished in just under 4 hours! Loved it and can’t wait to get back.

Challenging but fair. Small but true greens.

Great course for the money. Small elevated greens make this course a challenge. However, players with good short games can score. The greens are true and fast. Every hole is unique and has character. All around enjoyable course.

Good layout, Tough greens

What makes this course tough is the small, quick greens. If you hit a green in regulation it is no guarantee that you will make par. Course has about 3-4 soft boggy fairways but overall a good layout.

Nice course for the price

Played this course for the first time using a Hot Deal bargain in Golf Now. Course was in really good condition. Good course for all level of players. Greens are small which means you just need to make better shots. Will play again and recommend to others.

Good course

Fun course. Tree lined, so sprays will create additional strokes. No sand traps but Pinehurst type greens. Elevated with easy roll off. Will play again when opportunity arises.

Worst Course I have ever played

This course was in absolute terrible condition. The greens were fried out and rolled inconsistently. Also the greens did not hold a golf ball. Fairways had mounds in them and were also dried out. Rough has definitely not been cut this year. Also service in they pro-shop was terrible. Overall never play this course.

Great course but poor carts

The course was a great shape. There were a few leaves on the ground but overall it was a great Oct round. The carts are awful at best.

Great Experience

Very accommodating and friendly staff. Set me up with two members: John and Mikey. Two very friendly guys, guided me around; and shared their pitcher of beer with me when we finished the round. Very friendly atmosphere..
Fairways in good condition. Greens fast and challenging. Overall, a dry enjoyable morning.

I like the course a lot. It will challenge you to shots from all types of lies and to use your creativity on chipping and pitching. The greens roll great too.

Good value for the money. Small greens makes the golf course more challenging than it's look like on the paper.

Some tough greens

The layout of the golf course is pretty challenging and fun with lots of uphill and downhill shots and tree lined fairways. Being in the fairway is a must because you need every advantage you can when hitting into the greens. They are small with sides that are shaved and balls will run right off if you miss. That can be frustrating but if you can get it on, the putts will roll pretty true. Overall, its a challenge and a fun layout.

Unique and Challenging Track

ERCC is always a challenge. Typically windy, many shorter approach shots that are very tough despite close yardage due to the turtle-back greens. No green is very large, which makes you really focus on the short game. Very fun course, always a good time, good challenge and pretty good value.
