Slow play

We were the first group behind an outing of 10 groups of 4 players in each group. Neither TeeOff booking or the course informed us of this situation. After 4 hours of play we had only gotten to the 13 hole and couldn’t take the aggravation anymore so we quit. Before our money was taken we should have been informed of the situation. We had a beautiful day ruined and certainly didn’t receive value for our money.

Better than expected

After reading reviews, I wasn't expecting much . The driving range and 1st hole fairway were someone devoid of grass but after that the rest of the Red nine and the entire White nine were in great shape. All of the greens were superbly conditioned although holding them was difficult because they are small and firm. All in all, a definite "play again". Parking lot crowded as locals seem to love it. Fantastic VALUE!

Bring a sleeping bag

Slowest play I have ever had. Way overbooked. No ranger anywhere. Behind three ladies walking on the front nine. Waited on every hole. Back nine behind three gents that took 10 minutes looking for balls on every hole Quite after 15 holes won't go back.

Continuous Improvement

I enjoyed my round here today with a fine trio of golfers who had to put up with me, but they managed. We had a good time, playing a pretty quick round on the White/Blue. Each time I play here I seem to enjoy Elmridge more: seems like it will be a rota course for me. I’ve met some friendly playing partners over the five times I’ve visited this past year, and the course’s scenic location in the wooded hills is soothing and beautiful.

Layout Summary:
On the Blue, which is moderately hilly, architect Joseph Rustici has a penchant for using the rolling land in various ways down each fairway, the result being challenge, variety, and the encouragement of strategic play. Ideal examples of such appear on the stretch from holes 2 through 5. Augmenting the challenges are elevated greens, or sometimes strong greenside bunkering, throughout. While the Blue’s elevation changes are moderate, on the White seven of the nine holes ride big slopes. This W/B combination has four good par-3s and a quartet of stout par-5’s, the standouts being the fifth from each half: the White’s a monster 591-yarder that rolls as if it’s part of an oceanside links; the Blue’s a clever dogleg and maybe a two-shotter if you can hit back-to-back shots with power and precision.

Slopes around the greens tend toward the subtle, but a few greens require a lot of borrow on lengthy putts. Putting challenges are well-balanced, never done to excess. Driving to these fairways will often require your best efforts, and the biggest challenge may come at the Blue’s fourth, where the large knob at the dogleg is a hard target to hit and hold. This fourth is a hard nut to crack if you’re looking for a par or better.

Some conclusions: What’s impressive is the continued improvement on course conditions throughout this summer of 2021. Fairways and tees are now good and most of the greens excellent. Conditioning still falls short of top-notch but a wide range of players should be happy, as I have been, with Elmridge. Not too tough but far from easy, this White/Blue combination adds up to a course well worth playing. It’s also a solid value.
