Great Course!

This is the first time I played it I had a blast. The fairway is a bit narrow in places but if you are driving straight you can score score well on course. I’m an 18 handicap and shot an 89. I have played the Chateau many times and I do prefer the woodlands because of course conditions and pace of play.

Tough layout in good shape

Woodlands is the less picturesque 18 at Chateau Elan & generally gets less play. It’s a tight layout with some blind tee shots & tight landing areas. On this day, the greens were really slow as they have been watering a ton to keep them in good shape. There are lots of fade tee shots around this course, so hope that is in your bag. Pace of play can be slow due to lots of ball searching & you are unlikely to see a Marshall. Number 9 does NOT come back to the clubhouse, so have food with you. I have never seen the mid point grill open.

One annoyance….many of the tee boxes were not built to point at the center of the fairway. Most often they point at the right rough. I really hate this being overly visual in my swing shape.

It’s a nice course & even better if you have a coupon. Can be really pricey on the weekend.

The Woodlands

Course was in really good shape. Teed off at 1:30 p.m. on a Sunday and never saw another group on the course. Was able to play in right around 3 hours. With the shape the course is in and the brisk pace of play it made for a very nice time.

Intrusive pro

Got to the course early. Hit some balls on the range. Had a few left over and put them in my cart when I went to pick up my playing partner. We did not have enough time to return to the range so we teed off. Great round. We decided to return to the range to work on something post round. I took the balls out and was approached by and confronted by a pro who wanted to know If I took the balls on the course. He then lectured me about taking balls on the course. Like I have to use range balls to play golf? Much less I am returning them to the range! If I was on the course using range balls that is a different situation.
Totally unnecessary. Ruined my experience for the day.

Take your A game

Beautiful course and conditions of fairways/greens good. Tight fairways with a lot of hills and elevated greens. It was 91 usual for May which made course seem much harder.
