First Time Playing

The staff are super friendly and accommodating. They were out of carts but cleaned up a few and drove them up to us at the range. Range was pretty rough but smack a few off a tee and go to the putting green. Not so good. Lots of dead spots and weeds on the green. Head out and play. Not the best grass on most of the course. Water grass rough if there was grass. Course greens were in pretty good shape. Fast and firm and tricky to read. Most of the course layout is good. Neat routing for such a old course. Really just need to grow turf around the greens and rough and it could be a gem.

Not Great

This course was not great. They overbooked so we didn’t tee off until 35 mins after our original tee time, pace of play was slow, Greens were super hard and fast with bald spots all over.

Great Value for your Money

Eldon Golf Course is a 18 hole golf course that is in great shape. Greens are firm and challenging. Numerous tee boxes for every level of golfer.

Course has some long par 5's and a couple of shorter par 5's that are reachable in 2. Staff is always friendly and they have just got new golf carts that are really nice.

You will not be disappointed in Eldon Golf Course.

Eldon golf club

For the price, you'll be hard pressed to find a better value. I booked solo, and had a really fast pace of play. Two foursomes were very observant/courteous, and let me play right through.

Overall, the course was in great shape with only two small gripes.
1: restrooms, while it was awesome to have some out on the course, they were pretty nasty.
2: a couple greens were not in the best of shape. I also don't think many people that play there know how to fix a pitch mark. A lot of the greens were filled with pitch marks/divots

All in all the course was an amazing value, was setup in a way that was really fun, and I'll definitely visit again.

Apparation

This course us usually I good shape and fun to play. They were top dressing greens (unavoidable) so they were a little tough to putt. Real issue were tee boxes. Beat up and ground so dry and hard could barely get tee in the ground
Love the course. Front side pretty wide open. Bombs away. Backside demands more accuracy. Best value in LOTO

Great value needed some water

1st time playing, I really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff, and the course layout was nice. It was a mid-upper 80s day at the Lake. The course layout was good I enjoyed the challenging holes especially the par 3 from the golf tees
The course was rock hard however and it took me a few holes to realize nothing will stick on most of the greens. On #12 my cart was hit by a ball from the range which I feel is way to close to holes 9 and 12. Be aware
Overall with a little water and some TLC the conditions are easily fixed. I enjoyed the course and for the value in a Saturday, you can’t beat it. I will play again

Valued Customer,

We really appreciate your great review. Over the last four weeks, we've had irrigation issues as one our our main pumps has be inoperable. We do have another one on order and it should arrive in about 4 weeks as the machine shop has to customize the build for our system. Over the next four weeks, we are combating this issue with running a night crew to handle the proper water consumption for our facility.
