Nice course to practise irons

Frindly staff, nice course, not much challanging, only some holes are nearby. Unfortunately there was a „drunken“ flight in front of us took long time to hit a ball or the green.
Greens were a bit sandy, but ok.

Small executive course was in decent shape.
Played the front 9 in a litte less than an hour.
Back 9 left after 15 waited longer on tee box than it took to play the hole.
Nothing really bad about the course but for what I pay in Canada for a regulation size course it is lacking.

We enjoyed the round, but felt it was overpriced for the length and quality of the course.

A good course to work on your game.

A good course to work on your game.. This course is like an executive course conditions are not great but if you can get the deal on golf now and you want to play around to work on your short game it works. Greens are not so great like I say you just work on the short game gol for it

Course shape

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

Fair price

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!
