Stopped and played Elmbrook on my way to meet friends. The course was in nice condition. It measures 6,021-yards from the longest tees. It is par 72 with four sets of tees. Sand bunkers on some holes, water on only 3 holes. For what you get I felt it overpriced based on other courses in the area.

Back nine is really pretty...front nine, not so much but a good value and worth playing. Everyone is friendly, nice place to eat....fun inexpensive course.

Check out the sand traps on hole #3, shaped like the great lakes. Accommodating staff and a well kept area.

A fun, but challenging course. My wife and I scrambled and didn't care what our score was. The view of Traverse Bay is worth the green fees.

This is a nice course that is fun to play. Low key easy to get tee times and nice little bar when the round is over.

If you are traveling for golf, given all the great gold courses in northern Michigan don't waste your time on this one. By today's standards, this is not a very good course.

Went and played 18 holes today. Let's just say for $40 I did not get my money's worth. The greens are really bad right now and they still charge 40 bucks. The crown has my business from now on.

Staff was friendly. Forward tees weren't consistent with the card. Some rough greens and cart paths but we would go back for something and somewhere different to golf when we are in the area.

We had a charity outing, and I found this to be one of the best public courses I've been on! Has a similar feel to some of the high-end courses in the area. Definately a course worth the money.
