Opened for play on a rainy day, and I was roped into playing because GolfNow would not refund my money. The course was literally underwater. There wasn't a single hole (or shot) that was playable without taking relief from "casual water". Even then, the course was so wet, you could not complete relief without ending up the rough. The best you could do was fish your ball out of all the standing water in the fairways.. The course should not have been open. But the greedy operators, American Golf, shoved people out there anyway, and mashalls literally forced us to keep the cart on the paths. The conditions were so terrible, we quit after 9 holes. Why can't I give this course a "no star" rating? I didn't even desire one star. It was below "Poor". It was "Horrible".
Unfortunately, we had to pay the riding rate even though we walk. Please change this policy or add a walking rate to the website.
Best Track in Long Beach
El.Dorado is definitely the better of the public courses in LBC. The greens were in good conditions, some had some dead and bare spots but well kept otherwise.
Tee boxes were in good condition, bunkers were looking great and the fairways were typically patchy So Cal.Muni.
A better than average public course
Congrats on some golfers who actually take the time to repair their divots on the greens... a lost art... Does anybody believe in range marshals anymore?
We played on a holiday, the Friday after a Thanksgiving, and found Eldo to continue to suffer from slow pace of play and delayed start times. The course was not as well maintained as the last two times we played there, with bare spots on the fairways, sandy borders on several greens, lumpy putting surfaces on half the holes.
Sardine Can Golf
Played a SIX HOUR round today. They pack the course like sardines and we waited over 20min on every par 3 due to all the 5 somes. Started 30 min late too. Horrible course management.
Golf now tee times
Ariived on time for our 812 tee time. Starter did not have a tee time in system we had to wait til after 9 to go out. This should be corrected starter stated it was happening all morning.
It would have been nice if someone at the course or with GolfNow, would have notified us that aeration just started. It would have also been nice if we didn’t have to pay the standard rate on a course that is getting aerated. It also would make more sense to aerate the greens from front to back or vise versa not from left to right.
Slow Play - No Marshals - Great Burgers
The good news...the BBQ and food service team always do a great job. The bad news...It took 3 hours to play the front nine. Had a 1230ish tee time but teed off 20 minuets late. There seemed to be a lot of fivesomes on the course. We did not see any marshals so we were completely frustrated at the turn. I talked to the starter and we ended up playing the front nine again in 1.5 hours. I like the course and would recommend it for the right time slot but have a difficult time coming back when management cannot run the show. Public golf courses need to police their courses and push people along. Do the managers of these courses read these reviews? Other reviews recently are similar.
Greens punched. No warning
Unfortunately there was no warning as to the hole punched greens. I would not have booked here had i known.
Poor pace of play
Extremely poor pace of play. Ruined the mood. Waited 20 minutes after tee time to tee up. The entire day consisted of waiting for groups ahead with no marshal in sight. Front 9 was 2 hours and 30 minutes. Did not complete back 9 and it amounted to 5 hours leaving early. I would not recommend this course for what you pay for.
9 Holes in 3 hours!!! NEVER AGAIN!!
Booked 18 holes through Golf Now and each tee time allows you to book from 1 to 4 players. When we showed up at the course they put us in a fivesome!! I asked the club staff if this was in error and he said no. We had one walker hitting from the blue tees, we were riding and hitting from the white tees and we had two ladies riding and hitting from the yellow tees. Every group going off was a fivesome!! The walker playing with us said this was normal. We should have been warned by Golf Now or the clubhouse before we made the reservations. Took us a ridiculous 3 hours to finish nine holes so we quit. Saw a Marshall out one time and he was doing nothing because what could he do?? This course obviously only cares about their net profit!! Never again!!
Best Course in Long Beach
Flat but lots of trouble to avoid. Well maintained, not too long from the blues but still fairly challenging. Always enjoy playing this track
One of the best local courses in town
The course has demanding tee shots because the fairways are lined nicely with tall trees. Slight dog legs make it even more challenging yet so fun. Par 3’s here are relatively bland but nothing to hold against the course. The layout isn’t anything spectacular but they are quirky designs to it that make each hole unique. Long (and straight) hitters could get a little bored hitting mostly wedge into the greens. Overall a great course and I love coming to play here.
Perfect season and time to golf
This is in great shape, you need to play this track as soon as you can. The fairways in great shape and one can identify the fairway to the rough. The bunkers are the best shape I’ve seen in a long time and the greens though still a bit bumpy, still roll pretty true. The staff is very professional and cordial, kudos to management for screening and highering such a high standard team!
