We live close and go to this course frequently. The views from the middle holes are gorgeous. There is a putting green that is free right off hammond to practice. Prices are fair, driving range available.

This is a fantastic public course. Every year my brothers and I head to TC for a golf weekend. Rather than spending a fortune at a resort courses, we head on over to Elmbrook and it's never disappointed. This course has awesome bay views. It is well maintained. Reasonable pricing and the staff is amazing. We might play other courses... More

simply a great location for fun - the course is not a championship course, but neither is the price. THis is a frat location to go for a round of golf with friends or even new golfers / kids the staff is friendly

We had a great time playing Footgolf at Elmbrook! Played on the front nine, right next to the regular golf tees. A great family activity on a beautiful course!

My husband and I are novice golfers, so we aren't looking for courses that offer major challenges -- just nice places to play that give us the chance to have fun and build our skills. Elmbrook fit the bill. Located on Traverse City's south side, it's easy to find and well worth playing. The views from the sixth and 15th... More

When I coached golf I would take the girls golf team to Traverse City to play in the TCCHS Invitational. The girls always looked forward to playing this golf course. It was not unusual for deer or turkeys or other native animals to walk across the course during play. The course offered magnificent views and challenging golf. What more could... More

What a pleasant and challenging round of golf right in the heart of Traverse City. It is a shorter course just under 6000 yards from the blue tees. The holes require accurate shots but it is playable. One of my all time favorite holes is on this course - the 13th downhill dogleg par 5. You can see the bay... More

Our family like Elmbrook. It's certainly not a big challenge as many of the holes are 'half pipes'. Slices can end up back in the fairway. We've also liked the fact that they have junior tees and are very young golfer friendly.

Stopped and played Elmbrook on my way to meet friends. The course was in nice condition. It measures 6,021-yards from the longest tees. It is par 72 with four sets of tees. Sand bunkers on some holes, water on only 3 holes. For what you get I felt it overpriced based on other courses in the area.
