First Time Playing

A nice course.

It was my first time playing at the El Dorado. The course is nice. The course had lots of water "bunkers" (I'm no expert on golfing terminology). The grass wasn't green as I expected, but definitely looking forward to playing the course again.

If it wasn't for 3 holes

I feel like this course is stuck between being a water course and a woods course. I think this is a really excellent value. Usually you can get a round here for less than $30. El Dorado is definitely harder than La Quinta. For us amateurs I'd recommend LaQuinta. Overall I've yet to have a negative experience either with staff or other players. This is a very friendly place.

Fantastic course

Really well set out course. Challenging holes asking you to hit shapes in both directions. Friendly staff and patrons. I think maybe the fairways and greens could do with a little trim to totally finish the course off but a really good experience nonetheless.

Very nice!

Despite significant rain fairways and greens were in great shape. Bunkers will require work as a result but nonetheless enjoyable round. Will be back for sure!

Worst bunker conditions ever!!

Not only were we delayed by a juniors tournament off the first tee, we were backed up throughout the round, with up to four groups on the same hole at a time. Our round took five hours (1:07pm-6:00pm). The bunkers were so bad, I lost three balls (two to fairway bunkers and one to a greenside bunker) simply because the water in the bunkers was so deep and filthy, there was no way to see and/or find the balls. Just an embarrassing display of poor course management all the way around. Manage the tee sheet better, pump the water out of the bunkers and plan around your scheduled tournaments more efficiently. It’s not the first time I’ve been delayed by a junior golf tournament at this course. A really decent golf course, with fairway and green conditions better than average, but with everything else so poorly managed, it’s all easily overlooked. I would not and will not play this course anytime in the near future, nor will I recommend this course to anyone.

Fantastic

Staff was great, I had an excellent burger in the clubhouse before the meal. The pro at the proshop let me tee off a bit early. I didn't run into any groups until hole 12 (playing alone) but the 4some in front of me obviously knew the course and played quickly but kindly let me by when I caught up. Hope to play again soon!

Windy weather - Aerated Greens

Rescently aerated greems should be available for potential reservations. Finding out after you get to the course for your round is TOO LATE. Pace of play was excellent, fariways in good shape, bunkers so-so, and putts would bounce on the dimpled greens after aeration. Course is excellent, but need to check conditions before reserving a TEE TIME, especially since you have to pre-pay.

El Dorado in Great Shape

Fairways in great shape except where players are not allowed to repair divots due to COVID 19. Marshalls could have sand with them and perform this task periodically. Greens in outstanding shape. Rolled very well and inverted cup + 3' Gimme rule pretty much elimiated possible touching of the flag. Allow fivesomes, which slows play. Waited on every single hole, but stil finished in 4 hours. Great Value through Golf Now Hot Deal!
