This course is truly integrated into the housing community here, with lots of street crossings. The course is very interesting and as challenging as it gets around the Houston Area. For my iron play to be effective I need drier turf. I missed too many greens while hitting through saturated turf. The par 3s were as tough as they get. I got the yips out there a few times. Some of the greens were like putting on a table top too; especially putting downhill. I played the blue tees. Nice golf course!

Slow play due to cartpath only conditions,coupled with poor drainage resulted in 9 holes taking over 2 and a half hours on a horrible wet course. We left after 9 holes.

If we could, we'd rework with South Texas weather. Thank you for coming, so we hope you give El Dorado another try with that rain check when the weather is a little better.

This was a very beautiful course. it was a bit more difficult than I was expecting. the greens rolled very quickly and the rough was long. The bunkers were fluffy and steep. I enjoyed hole 10 as it was a very nice risk reward par 5 where you were looking at Birdy easily. when I'm looking for a challenge I will definitely return to this amazingly beautiful course.

Driving range was closed. Putting greens were horrible and then we got run off at 12:00 pm for them to spray them. So there was practically no warm up prior to the tee time. You would think you would spray practice areas first thing or in the evening when people are not on them??? Greens were ok but the fairways were suspect at times. Pace of play was over 4:45 while following a 5 some. Never saw a marshal on the course

Apologies for the practice/warm-up facilities not being open. We're doing a lot of work to revamp them. Despite the busy holiday week, we do our best to help all our guests have fun here and have been getting cheers for the course conditions, so we hope you appreciated that aspect of your experience and make it back for another visit. We'll do our best to make it up to you.

Course was in excellent condition from tee to green. The only issue were the tee boxes. The ground on the tee boxes was very hard. Had to use short tees. Only a minor adjustment. Fairways in excellent condition. Sand has been replaced in 90% of sand traps due to Harvey. Greens also in excellent condition. Pace of play was excellent 3hr 45min. I'll be back.

I enjoyed my round on the El Dorado course very much. Teed off around 2pm on Friday and was done by 6. This course is very challenging, but the views are spectacular and make for an exciting round. A few bunkers were in rough shape, but otherwise the greens and fairways were in very good condition. I will be back again!

All good. Nice course in good shape. Only areas of recommended improvement are the driving range, which is small and overused so probably need mats. Secondly, quite a few of the sand traps appear to have some drainage issues. Although not holding water, indications of mud vs sand. This could also be due to recent heavy rain.

After such slow groups in front of us, without being able to play through, and over four [4] hours, to hole #13, our group of 3 decided to go around the group in front of us, and just not play that hole. The Marshal had already been by twice, but no help. There was a complete empty hole between that foursome and the next. But looking ahead of the next foursome, we found that every hole was very backed up, with as many as 8 carts at some of the tee box areas. We had no choice but to just head in, as it might have taken us 6 or 7 hours to complete our round. We passed the Marshal again on the way in. When I asked about the slow play, he indicated that it was likely due to all the groups of 5 playing. Nobody we spoke to was happy with the situation. Ridiculous ! !

Our round of golf started with a sarcastically friendly Starter named Bob. He was able to get us out on the course a little before our tee time and explained the history of the two courses as well as some other information that was helpful latter in our round.

The greens were in great shape and fast. I love putting on TRUE greens and El Dorado had them.

Over all I give this corse 5 stars. From the first tee to the great Cobb salad after my round everything about Quail Vally was "Top Notch".
