Every par three seemed to be the same club. Greens not consistent. One par 5 has water across fairway and no way to see it. I complained tired of watching group in front tee off, very soon was watching them tee off too. Marshall said problem was several groups up but nothing he could do. I suggested that he ask them to skip a hole. He said he couldn't do that. Reminded me of commercial where bank is being robbed and security says he is just there to let them know not do anything. Watched scores on phone as much as played golf. Cheap rate on Golfnow or would have been really annoyed.

Quite a variety of layouts. Lots of water and fairway bunkers in play. Choose your tees wisely. Some long carries over water if you challenge from the back tees. I agree that having carry distances over water and to fairway hazards would be a big plus. The course was really in great shape, especially given that it had rained some every day for a week.

This course puts a premium on well placed tee shots on many of the holes.

The range was closed due to the rain, but we did do some chipping and putting before heading out. I must say that the practice facility wasn't kept up as well as the course, but the potential is really there with a little TLC.

Glad you enjoyed yourself here. I'll goal is to help everyone have fun. Regarding the 2 courses, we'd like to think that they are just different. People tend to love one or other for different reasons. Being an 'old scholl' course, La Quinta is more forgiving off the tee but with tougher, elevated greens while El Dorado is a modern, rolling golf course that can be visually intimidating. Either way, hope you come back again. Thank you.

This is one of the nicest courses I have played but we were all very shocked by the fact that there were not coolers of cold water around the golf course. I believe there were three or four elementary school type water fountains. Not nearly enough to keep you hydrated during the hot summer and we play on the hottest days of the year. I was tempted to drink out of one of the ponds at one point in the round and we all left lightheaded.

We know summer can be a brute, so we have ice, cups and water available in the clubhouse for the start and end of the round. Also there is water on the 5th hole, ice/water at the turn-house after #9 (a little hidden - we apologize), water on #13 and #16. Also have a beverage cart that runs but can get caught up on busy days. Apologize that wasn't enough for you but hope you come back out.

Good, challenging course without being excessively long. The kind of course you could play every day and not get bored. A few greens were a little rough. Some greens were excellent. it is early in the year, though and I believe they will improve. I definitely plan to put it on my playing schedule regularly. Recently renovated clubhouse is very nice. Very accessible, I live in Galleria area and found the drive time very reasonable.

The Bluenonnet Grille inside or out on the patio is awesome before or after your round. Hope you got to soak that in a little. We hope to get all the greens rolling for you even better next time you come out from in town. Thank you.
