Unpleasant treatment?!

We were group of 4 players plus my girlfriend was with us from out of town visiting, so we needed an extra 3rd golf cart! I was very unhappy of their $35 additional charge for the extra golf cart?? Most golf courses don’t charge.. This unusual & unexpected outrageous charge shows how greedy & unwelcoming we were treated.

Green speed too slow & didn't mention the green airorated. Practice ranger balls not allowed for the players. Only one rest thru 18 holes, no water stand, and no trash can. Electric cart stock on the fairways then allowed reverse only several times.

Struggling with drought conditions

Completely understand we are in some drought conditions but some areas were so heat stressed they might not recover. Clearly not doing enough watering for the weather. Greens were aerated within the last 2 weeks and are still borderline unplayable in my opinion. 2-3” hops were not uncommon. Seems they weren’t sanded enough after punching as there are lots of unfilled holes. I’m confident conditions will improve with better weather so my review only reflects my experience the week of June 20th 2022.

Pricey

Played the Château course twice on Father’s Day weekend. Found it to be a bit pricey based on the condition of the greens. They were still recovering from aeration and sanding a few weeks earlier. Pace was a bit slow but not terrible. Good food and drinks at Sarazan’s.

Great Fun

This course is in great condition with the recent heat wave hitting the area. Course is challenging from the tee shot selection and you can just pull out your driver all day long. They did have the drink cart and that was wonderful. They also had water coolers which is a great addition!
The only problem was we had a group of 5 playing together in front of us and they never let the two of. Is pass. I think they may have been member but letting 5 off the start for a morning tee time is crazy. No Marshall ever came to the course and we waited on every hole.

Unprofessional

I played the course on June 4 and everything was great. I come back on June 10 with 3 guests and the greens were punched. We should have been informed of this as the greens were unplayable.

Nice round at Chateau Elan

Played on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and had a great experience. A little pricey but it was a morning round on a holiday weekend, so not unexpected. Course was in solid shape, greens rolled very true. Pace of play was good & the beverage cart came around probably 5 times during our round.
