I did play this course 5 years ago and it was not a pleasant experience. It was in rough shape
Now it is in much better shape and it seems the maintenance has much improved. The layout is good. I would definitely play it again.
Already booked another round
Loved this short course, layout was nice with several holes paralleling each other. Soooo be careful. Greens were in fairly good shape the course had very little trouble, aside from a few trees. Pace was good considering the number of golfers. Looking forward to playing here again
The most dangerous golf course I’ve ever played ! Golf balls flying by our heads on 7 different holes . Rediculous ! Greens hadn’t been mowed in several days ! Don’t play this course !!!!!
With the rising cost for a round of golf going up more every year in SW Florida El Rio is bargain compared to many courses in the Ft Myers area. Great place to work on your short game and get some tight lie ball striking practice.
Give it a go sometime.
Good value course
First time at this course and it was a busy afternoon so play was probably a little slower than normal. Course was in good condition, greens had a few brown spots but overall very good. Presents some challenges as greens and fairways are close but overall very fun to play. Staff was great! Would play again!
This is my go to course to work on my short game and also my midrange approach shots.
The greens are rolling fairly true with a few greens being repaired for some minor dry areas that can easily be putted past by simply moving your ball slightly like being in a ground under repair area.with no penalty. (assuming your group is reasonable)
I enjoy working on my short game at El Rio. My Christmas Eve game was a 62 (par 60) with 2 birdies and 4 bogies. I enjoyed it so much I played a second round for a 67.
Stop by and give it a try. There is just the right amount of water & bunkers to make it interesting.
Great course to practice your short irons, poor customer service.
I arrived at 4:23 pm to play 18 holes with a cart. I live on the course so I knew there weren't many people on the course. I was greeted with "you know you only have an hour and a half until sundown right ?" I said yes I will speed golf. Reluctantly I was rung up for my round and then was told to make sure I was back in with the cart at sundown because they wanted to go home. I assured the man I would be back in time. I caught up with the other golfers at hole #11 and was done with my round at the same time the group before me was. If you don't want people to tee off that late then put a closed sign up. I have limited free time & I am very aware of when the sun goes down. Poor customer service as this isn't the first time this has happened.
