Elk River Course

Greens were in great shapr and fast. The greens are small. Several blind shots in, which make it challenging. It would be an easy course to walk.

Well maintained and challenging course

The course was in excellent shape and well manicured. The greens are smallish, slightly elevated and mound shaped. They are hard to hit, hold and very fast, but consistent and fare. I really enjoyed playing the course

Nice course, fast greens.

This course was in good shape but hard to hold greens on approach. Most shots reaching the green on the fly rolled off. The greens rolled well while putting. Early Sunday morning tee time was the right move for pace of play. Very courteous golfers.

Really nice course

First time playing this course. I liked the fact that the holes were a lot of Par 4s. Felt a little rushed but otherwise great overall experience

Great value course

Elk river golf club is a great value course. Some parts of the course are a bit beat up, but it still plays great. It’s a challenging course with small and fast greens. The clubhouse and the restaurant/bar are great amenities. Fun & challenging course that’s always a fair price!!

First timer

I thought the course was in excellent shape. Some the nicest fairways and greens I've played on. The facilities are in need of a facelift and hope they can preserve this old course.

Great Bang for the Buck Just Outside the City

We had a fabulous time at Elk River GC today. Corey in the clubhouse was incredibly helpful making sure we complied with all COVID restrictions and was altogether very kind. The practice facilities were open and properly socially distanced, which was really nice too.

As for the course, it was really in fantastic shape across the board. Hardly a patch of winter burn to be found, and the rough around the greens came in nicely, which I’ve found rare around the state this year. My only gripe about the layout was that there were a few pin positions that truly felt unfair, as they were cut into a couple side hills. Altogether though, fantastic track.

As a bonus, great pace of play for a public course on the weekend. I think we finished in just under 4 hours! Loved it and can’t wait to get back.

Challenging but fair. Small but true greens.

Great course for the money. Small elevated greens make this course a challenge. However, players with good short games can score. The greens are true and fast. Every hole is unique and has character. All around enjoyable course.

Good layout, Tough greens

What makes this course tough is the small, quick greens. If you hit a green in regulation it is no guarantee that you will make par. Course has about 3-4 soft boggy fairways but overall a good layout.
