November 17th

Perfect fall day for golf. Course in great fall condition. Even first hole with new drain pipe and construction equipment on fairway was not an issue. Tee boxes, fairways and greens in good shape.

Sunday October 20

Actually played LaQuinta today, not El Dorado. El Dorado had a small tournament going out ahead of me and nobody at all on La Quinta. Course is in excellent fall conditions. Most greens full and firm (there were 2 that were quite bare though). Good day for golf.

First Time Playing

Really enjoyed it!

The course is relatively well kept and nicely designed. We played as a twosome and were not paired up with other golfers. We tee’d off just after a local high school match and just before the Astros played the Yankees in game 3 of the ALCS championship. We barely saw anyone on the course, besides the nice lady driving the refreshment cart.?Thank you for the open course Astro fans!

Played Eldorado on a Wednesday

First class pro shop and clubhouse. Plenty of ice available on a hot day with a heat index at 100. Beverage carts came frequently. White tees too far on #17 into that prevailing southeast wind. I always move up to gold on that tee. Lost some balls in the rough and greens were very slow on #11 thru 13... like they hadn’t been cut that day. Highest rough was on 18 past the water off the tee. I always like the ice available on the 10th tee.

Thank you for the compliments and coming over from Katy on a regular basis. Appreciate your patience with some ares as we work to improve some things around the course after the recent deluge of rain.

Wrong Course

I booked El Dorado but ended up playing La Quinta. The twosome I was paired with teed off early and the groups in front and behind my time were foursomes. La Quinta had some gaps so I went out on it. Course was in very nice shape for first of September. Two greens were down to bare earth in spots but didn’t affect my putting. Also 12 (I think?) is having some drainage work done down right side but apart from not being able to drive down path, it was not a factor. An enjoyable round.

So hot I don’t think anybody wanted to be out today. Played as a line single and didn’t run into anybody. Apart from being a touch dry due to weather conditions the fairways and greens are in decent shape. Greens were recently aerated but didn’t affect roll too much.

This course has a very good layout

They had just punched the greens the day before otherwise I would have given a 5 star on condition. Fairways in great shape and bunkers in good condition. Played the same course 3 days prior and greens prior to punching were great.

So much potential, but so much disapointment

I have played these courses multiple times and at booking I read all the rave reviews of the El Dorado course. I was woefully disappointed with what transpired on Saturday.

The 3 groups that were in front of us consisted of a 4-some, followed by a 2-some, then followed by a 5-some. We teed off at approximately 11 AM and did not complete our round until 4:30PM. The pace of play was atrocious and the greens had been aerified i would say between 1 and 2 weeks prior. The was no alert when booking the tee time and the price was full. Needless to say, I will not be returning to Quail Valley
