Good for the price

Interesting holes. Not very difficult but fun, especially on the uphill downhill holes. Certainly worth the price paid.

It grows on you...

I've played Ely Park for many years and have weathered the ups and downs and in-betweens. This is a municipally owned but privately managed course. It has its fans and detractors, more due to inconsistent conditioning than design. This has been a very wet summer and as such, the course is greener than usual for late July. The fairways and rough can be spotty and what few bunkers they have are generally unplayable. The greens are normally pretty good and the layout challenging in places. Carts are electric and well maintained. The real charm of Ely Park is often the most overlooked one. You're on top of a mountain with several panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside. They really have the ideal location. The "pro shop", isn't and the facilities are basic, with the notable exception of the bar/grille upstairs. While the service can be iffy, the food quality is very good and the prices quite reasonable. In summary, if you're in the area and can score a good deal, then Ely is worth a play.
