Woodlands

Once a grand golf course, now, the greens are about gone the overall maintenance is being ignored, bunker washed out (#2)weeds abound throughout It looks like a course that has been sold and no one is puttin any money into it. It is a shell of its former self. Honestly, after seeing it today I would not play it if it was free I am so sad to have to write this

Greens aerated recently and not noted

Course could ordinarily be good, but greens were aerated this month and not well taken care of. That would be ok, but we paid $70+ and it was not noted when we booked (the day prior). Price should have been discounted and recent aeration should have been listed as other courses do

No alert about aerification!

We played at Woodlands course on 9/7/22 and when we made a reservation on GolfNow, there was no alert or notification to warn us that the course just had an aerification on all greens. Check in person in pro shop didn't even mention when we got there and we found out when we reached our first green. Aerification holes were rather big and no sands were on greens so all greens were bumpy and it was hard to make putts. There was no purpose of reading greens because balls were bouncing off to all directions. I wouldn't play here until late September.

Greens need help

Last month everything was perfect. Yesterday, the greens need some serious help. Fungus... The pace would have been great but the couple in front of me just were way to slow and they didn't understand golf etiquette. Let me play through. And please fix your ball marks on the greens people.

Bad Green with Fungus - Woodlands Course

Many greens at Woodlands course have Fungus growing on them with wet and bald spots., which makes them hard to putt on. I brought up this issue to the club house after the round and they said, its just hot out there, which causes the Bentgrass to burn, so they water it often. That's not an excuse as several other courses have similar grass, but not the same issue. Instead of club house apologizing for these green conditions, these said.. play our other course (Chateau), to which I said, I'm NOT coming back to play here anytime soon.

First Time Playing

Great layout! Well maintained tee boxes and fairways. Greens were rough. Might be due to rain and players not fixing ball marks but it was impossible to get a true roll. For a golf course that charges over $100 for morning tee times, would have expected a bit better green condition. Other than the greens, the course was beautiful. If they can get the greens rolling true, I could understand paying north or $100. Overall would give 7.9/10.

Poor Greens

Overall a good course, but overpriced for sure. I usually really enjoy Château, but the greens are starting to look like Collins Hill. Fungus has taken over and for $130, not what you would expect. The fairways and tee boxes are great and the staff was great. Really need to get some fans on those greens. It’s a shame that they have gone down hill.

Not worth the money

Slow pace of play was beyond acceptable
Crews working had no regard for players
Decent fairways but tons of bare areas with roots, rocks and wash outs
Cart pats filled with pot holes and roots pushing up. Very bumpy.
Lots of other places to play close by for less with better conditions

We are very sorry for the inconvenience you experienced at the course. As far as the raincheck goes, sounds like you prepaid for a Hot Deal on GolfNow. When this is the case, no money is paid to the pro-shop so there is no money that is owed back from the course. You may have booked other course times through GolfNow and that is why you were able to obtain a raincheck. If you call GolfNow, they would be happy to rectify the situation. We hope this clears any confusion up and we hope you give us another try in the future.

Enjoyed the round!

The staff is always friendly & accommodating. The new carts are awesome! The are super clean with excellent GPS on board. Course conditions could have been better. The practice green was perfect, clean, fast & fun to putt & when we got on the course, the greens were slow, bumpy with brown blotches/stressed areas. It would be nice if the greens on the course matched the practice green. For the price of the "green fees" they should be better.
For my fellow golfers - Do your part to keep the course in great condition. if you don't know golf etiquette, get yourself accustomed to what is expected on the course or find another sport to play. Watched the group in front of us multiple times hit out of bunkers & never once raking. Which I landed in one of their foot craters on 18. As well as, leave an absolute mess on the greens dragging their feet & never once bending over to fix a ball mark. How do I know this? They defined a new definition of slow, just because you see the tour pros 5 minute pre-shot routine doesn't mean you should replicate. And, you are welcome for picking up your pitching wedge and giving it back (proper golf etiquette) you probably just forgot to say thank you!

Disappointed!

For 92$ and this being a discounted price I was totally dissatisfied. I have played this course for cheaper and in better shape!
The greens were beat up! probably because they were so soft.Not from the rain.
The sand traps had bermuda grass growing into the edges about 4 to 6 inches. Needed trimmed out. Plus the traps were not raked out. Looks like they haven’t been touched in weeks.
The second cut was so high!
It was a Friday morning! I would think thats when the course should look its best! Getting ready for the weekend.
No cart helpers at the bag drop!
92$ Really??
I won’t be back to llay any of the courses at Chateau Elan.
