Elks Run has, in the past, been one of my foursomes well liked places to play. As we pulled in it was obvious that there had been a good sized outing. When we walked in the outingERs were all inside enjoying the after golf activities....More

Greg Norman would be absolutely disgusted by the shape of this golf course. Hell, I couldn't believe how bad of shape that it's in. Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers are horrible. The greens are slow and need to be rolled. I'd definitely book a tee time...More

Grandma took us here for lunch. It is modest but a comfortable enough place for lunch, although it appears a little run down, but we were there at the end of the season, and maybe they will spruce bit up in the Spring.

We very much enjoyed our round of golf at Elks Run. The course was in much better shape than last year and the elevated tees from a few holes have some great views of the valley.

Greens not bad, sand traps and tee boxes are not maintained. They need to paint the tee markers a solid color, to confusing looking for small stripe that is faded out. Very obvious there isn't a groundskeeper maintaining the sand bunkers....Sad, this is not a...More

I don't think they have a grounds crew. Always in poor condition. Too many other good courses near by. Don't wast your money.

They had a tough year with weather, particularly flooding so not as plush as usual but still a very nice course with lots of challenging holes.

I was referred to Elks Run by a friend who is a golf writer. Wow! Great track at muni prices. Staff was friendly and helpful. Front nine has wide fairways, the back nine is more strategic off the tee. I joined a twosome that included...More

This course has some issues but they could be great. It is a challenge to play and not that far away. Disappointed in facilities. Lack of clean water stations and restrooms make it below standard. Course was under lots of repairs and had been hit...More
