Approach

It seems that there are quite a few holes that you cannot cut from the approach to the green with a good shot there is sand and no grass in front of lots of the greens which creates a difficult third shot all the approaches need to be repaired and grass needs to be grown

Leaves!

Course was in good condition for late October, greens were in great shape, some of the tee boxes were being worked on. Pay special attention on direction of your ball, Elbe as lots of trees, which means lots of leaves in the fall. Stunned I lost only one ball.

Elbel

THE COURSE WAS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE. THE TEE BOXES WERE A LITTLE BEAT UP BUT NOT BAD. THE FAIRWAYS WERE SOFT AND PLUSH. THE GREENS WERE VERY GOOD CONCIDERING THEY HAD BEEN AIRATED A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. THET WERE VERY SLICK TOO. LOVED THE LAYOUT AND THE MOXIE OF THE COURSE. PACE OF PLAY WAS A LITTLE SLOW DUE TO A LOT OF PEOPLE PLAYING.

A great find...

Staff friendly but course in great shape working its way through water, many different types of trees.
Would have to be a must when fall arrives and color hits trees!
