I am a regular golfer at El Carisa and other area course, and was terribly disappointed by the golf course's current management and the handling of my tee time. I was scheduled in the middle of a men club and there was no starter to get me in. The one person in the Pro Shop was a young kid who didnt care. I have never had such bad service here or at any course in the Valley. I will not be coming back. And I am going back to Golf Zing.

Some of the front 9 green surfaces were filled with leaves and other dirts from the surrounding trees and droppings from ducks all over the course.

Some holes needs signs to help guide the golfers around the course.

Otherwise, it’s an enjoyable place to play with new golfers.

The greens were in very good condition. Smooth rolling without being too fast.

On a side note, one side of the driving range has fallen into the 18th fairway. It must have blown over in one of the many recent wind storms.

Unfortunately this course just isn’t up to par since the new management take over . The pro shop is practically empty. No waters,soda, coffee or alcohol options. To make things worse when we went to call in our breakfast order at home 8th hole the guy told us “sorry I can’t place an order I have no way to tell them” and “ it’s only 11 they just opened and probably aren’t ready for your order “ I guess they just don’t need the business. It’s ok me and my buddies play about once a week and we can take our $$ and play else where. It’s unfortunate because we used to really enjoy coming here. Smh

This course was below average. This is a beginner course with lots of Par3. The back 9 was much more fun then the front 9. The fairways were in ok shape and the greens were pretty beaten up. The course did not have a lot of trash cans at different holes nor did it have any water to wash your balls either. I paid $21 for this course and it’s definitely not a $20 course. This is a $8-12 course. On the plus side if your looking to just mess around drink beers and golf with friends then this is the course. And there were 3-4 restrooms throughout the course, first time seeing that.
