Rated 3 out of 5 by Doug9017324 Always a Challenge When Putting on Verified Greens
It was nice that via GolfNow, you could see that the greens have been recently aerified. We knew what we were getting into. It looked like they JUST aerified them the day before or that morning. The only issue was that the holes weren't quite filled in throughout and some areas still had a lot of sand on the surface. Hmmm.... what's it like putting through a bunker? Now I know. I 4-putted from 12 feet out. But, we knew that going in. The price was good.
The rest of the course was in great shape as usual. The pace was great on the front, but on the back, I think the guys in front of us were starting to get drunk and were hitting the ball all over the place. One guy left his putter 3 holes back. LOL.
So, it is what it is. Tis the season of aerification, don't pay full price.

This is a challenging course with some beautiful scenery! I'm fairly new to the area and had only played here once before. The only complaint I have isn't their fault - when players are fixing their ball marks on the greens, they are doing so improperly and digging up the center of the mark, which has made several greens a little rough. Aside from that, the rough is challenging, there's lots of fescue And the greens are lightning quick. If you keep it straight you can score here - good shots are usually rewarded. Great deals on golfnow make this one of the premier valued courses in greater Cincinnati!

Finally got to play here with my dad. The course was in great shape. The only reason I marked down were for some ballmarks. Elks Run has a challenging layout for all tees/skillsets. My dad had all he wanted from the men's tees and I was able to play the tips to offset our differences in distance. The fairways were green and lush an the greens were receptive of approach shots. We cannot wait to go out again the next time he is in town.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pete7626674 Done w 18 in 7 Holes
staff and course were terrific but the pace of play was beyond acceptable. we had two threesomes in front of us and they had no where to go. at the end of 7 we were one hole behind the time card we were given. at the end of 8 holes we were two holes behind. there was no explanation or ranger to help. my son was leaving for college the next day and asked that we try and try to finish. we tried ten and then quite. you had too many people on the course and the 7 minute gap only works if you have low hanicappers.

Its very unfortunate that Elks jams so many groups onto this course. It's a great course but, it's hard with lots of trouble. So this is the problem. Due to difficulty they need to space the tee times better. It seems they should try to please the majority rather than jam so many players on the course and disappoint everyone just to make a little more money. Until I hear they fix this I will not go back! Very unfortunate cause it's a great track.
